“That little motherfucker is good. That dude’s a rookie. He’s crazy. He’s the best rookie in the NBA.
“If you don’t count Ben Simmons. If you’re not counting Ben Simmons. Excluding Ben Simmons, he’s the best rookie in the NBA. Him and [Jayson] Tatum.
“Donovan Mitchell is the best rookie in the NBA, bottom line. That motherfucker is out there leading a team as a rookie. You know what I mean?
“He’s got way more on his shoulders than a lot of other guys, eluding Ben Simmons. Him and Tatum are impressive.”
