Donovan Mitchell makes fresh Simmons dig ahead of Utah Jazz game

Donovan Mitchell makes fresh Simmons dig ahead of Utah Jazz game

He was averaging 17.5 points, 4.1 rebounds, 4.9 assists and almost one steal per game in 35 minutes during that 14-game stretch while shooting 53 percent and 50.7 percent from 3-point range.

First, the Utah Jazz rookie shaded Simmons by rocking an Adidas hoody to Vivint Arena with the true definition of "rookie" on the front, clearly digging at Simmons' redshirt season after suffering a broken foot. Simmons has publically said he "100 percent" should win the award, which prompted a hilarious social media response from Mitchell.

"Not taking away anything that he's doing because he's having a fantastic year, and I think he'll be one of the faces of this league for years to come", Green added.

Mitchell of the Utah Jazz and Simmons of the Philadelphia 76ers both emerged as the leading candidates for the award thanks to their performances this season. The 21-year-old is averaging 16 points, 8.2 rebounds and 8.1 assists in his first National Basketball Association campaign.

Before Tuesday's game, he hilariously trolled Simmons by wearing a hoodie that read, "Rookie: An athlete playing his or her first season as a member of a professional sports team".

Even though he doesn't care about winning the award, he does have an opinion about Simmons' eligibility as a rookie.

Our own Sixers beat writer Kyle Neubeck published a detailed statistical comparison between Simmons and Mitchell. But some people may not have all that time to prepare for that exam. But at the end of the day, we're in the fourth seed.

"It's great to be in this conversation but I'm more happy about where we are at as a team". He somehow does this without shooting threes and is now averaging a triple double through Philly's 15-game winning streak.

The 76ers, who have won a franchise-record 15 in a row, can seal the No. 3 seed with a win over the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday in Philadelphia.

The victor of the NBA Rookie of the Year award will be announced at the end of the postseason on June 25.

"If I win, cool". "But I don't care".
