It seems like there is always that one player that stands heads and shoulders above the other NBA talent.  Think of Wilt Chamberlain, Kareem Abdul Jabbar, Julius Erving, Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, Lebron James, and now....Donovan Mitchell?

Okay maybe not quite yet, but if he leads the Utah Jazz to a world title or two, doing it the way he has been, we may have our successor to King James.  If not Mitchell, who would be the next likely candidate to be the NBA's #1 superstar?  Steph Curry?  Someone else?

Even if Trump were to be revealed as the Dark Lord of the Sith, he's still better than the last four presidents we've had.

Short answer: No

Long answer: No

Michell has been doing well in the playoffs, and is a good player overall, but there are several other candidates would produce at much higher levels.  To rise to the level of one of those NBA greats you mentioned, you'd have to be a player who is still young enough to have that kind of career projectory.  Players who *might* reach that level of awesomeness would be Luca Doncic (he's only 22 and right now probably one of the top three players in the league), Giannis Antetokounmpo (26), or Nikola Jokic (26).

Steph Curry and Russell Westbrook have had phenomenal careers, and perhaps Curry's history of championships means that he will be remembered in line with those greats, but they are both in their younger 30s and so their careers will be winding down.

Now do you see why I put Giannis in this list of potential greats?

Yeah he made history.  Congrats to the Greek Freak.

50 points, 14 rebounds, five blocks, two assists....has to be one of the most dominant performances in a game to win an NBA championship game ever.

I think Donovan can duplicate those numbers but if he has to, he will never win a championship because it takes a complete team effort.
