    I saw this thread --- --- on reddit and couldn't believe that Booker was the runaway favorite.

    Booker plays poorly against the Jazz and I don't watch the Suns outside of our games against each other so I'm obviously biased (along with all of us), but I think DM is far and away the better player.

    Thoughts?

    This is where people really underestimate the psychological component of the game. It isn’t even close.

    To be fair to Booker, he has to play for the Suns.

    Not even close. I'm sure half the teams in the NBA would trade their top player for Mitchell.

    I'm just now realizing how stupid it was to make this thread a poll.

    It's my first poll, please forgive me.

    Poll was naive. But I appreciate the forum link.

    Spida. Not even close. And that's my unbiased opinion. I'm a fan of Booker and as a shooter he's amazing. But DM is a more complete player and as such he has a higher upside.

    If there ends up being a single vote for Booker here they can GTFO.

    Booker's name has been out there a little longer so I understand why he'd get more votes on reddit.

    Haha. U beat me to it love it
    Just pretend we tanked and got the #1 pick last year
    Also factor in the fact DM plays in Utah, no one has seen DM play. Lol
    I see it a little bit. Harden can play pg and sg equally well. That's where the comparison falters though as Booker looks like a pure sg trying to play pg. he looked bad last night at pg. the funny thing is DM comps to Harden a lot more then Booker, oh and Booker is not the better playmaker then DM. PERIOD!

    Yea, not even close. I also don't get them saying Booker looks to be the better playmaker? Booker is more like a JJ Reddick in his ideal role. A better player you would hope but more like Reddick than Harden.

    Booker's ceiling is a 2nd/3rd option on a championship caliber team ala Klay Thompson. Mitchell's ceiling is the best player on a championship caliber team ala Wade. Anyone who prefers Booker is either a Sun's fan or someone who's never seen Mitchell play. Or David Kahn.
