Donovan Mitchell's crossover on Draymond Green liked by Chris Paul, Russell Westbrook

Donovan Mitchell's crossover on Draymond Green liked by Chris Paul, Russell Westbrook

He broke the rookie record for three-point makes.

The lighthearted dig sparked a flurry of sports anger between the 76ers and Jazz fanbases, with the latter mentioning the "good point" of Mitchell's sweatshirt.

The part of Simmons' interview that received the bulk of attention was when he dismissed the notion that it was a two-man race for Rookie of the Year.

Early Wednesday, Mitchell had one little reply, a tweet with two emoji, a happy face with zipped lips and a shrug.

"For me, I would go with Donovan just for the simple fact: I think he's a true rookie", Green said.

After Mitchell's big game and second big win over the Warriors this season, the Louisville product is proving the NBA's reigning Defensive Player of the Year right as the heated debate with Simmons continues.

Simmons has played a key role for the overachieving 76ers, who have won 14 straight matches and sit third in the conference with two games left to play in the regular season. The idea being that he's not really a rookie and shouldn't be eligible for Rookie of the Year honors.

Earlier in the week, Simmons would say "people who know the game" know he's deserving of the award. But Mitchell doesn't care what Simmons thinks; he believes he's the Rookie of the Year.

The Utah Jazz guard has had a phenomenal rookie campaign, leading the Jazz to a playoff berth while averaging 20.5 points, 3.7 assists and 3.7 rebounds per game. If you look at the numbers, you'll see.

Mitchell responded on Twitter before recently throwing shade at the Melbourne native before the game against the Warriors on Tuesday by wearing a hoodie with the definition of rookie written on it, implying Simmons can not be considered one even if this is his first proper season. He also said that he's "100 percent" the Rookie of the Year. He averages 15.9 points, 8.2 rebounds and 8.2 assists per game. It was a shot at Simmons, who missed his first year with a broken foot. Simmons, the front-runner to win the 2018 Rookie of the Year award, addressed Mitchell's new hoodie after Philly's 121-113 victory over the Atlanta Hawks.
