  • Shooting percentages: 43.9 from the field, 36.2 from three, 82.8 from the foul line
  • Playoff games with Utah: 23
  • Postseason averages: 27.3 points, 5.4 rebounds, 4.2 assists, 1.3 steals, 0.3 blocks


If there is an active player who has a chance to one day catapult to No. 1 in this ranking, well, then that man is Donovan Mitchell. At age 24, the 6-foot-1 sturdy guard has already played in two All-Star Games.
