tony mitchell and alex poythres
who will be better nba player between tony mitchell and poythres? tony mitchell stats look better than poythres their first season mitchell block more shots and rebounds the better
The way I see it, Mitchell plays harder and has a stronger motor, while Poythres has more refined offensive skills. Defensively, Mitchell is better at that end. So even tho they are similarly built, size, and athleticism, they are two different types of Combo-Forward. I would take Mitchell simply because he competes harder and players who play good defense usually stick around longer in the league.
poythres skills are far from refined even thouhg you said more refined. tony mitchell is a better shootter and he have better ball handling poythres can score more and more higher shooting percentege because he plays on better team and so defense leaves him more open
From one who has followed the failed hoops season at North Texas, Mitchell needs to be on a team with great leadership because he's no leader. He does not raise the level of play around him in any way.
I think he can succeed in the right situation, but if were to wind up in a situation like SAC, he's likely to struggle to mature in the same way Evans has.
