The debate between Donovan Mitchell and Devin Booker has been a hot topic for quite some time now, and thanks to local man Scott Howard (@ScottHoward42) we may have found clarity on the situation.
Howard, a regular guy, ran a poll for a month straight asking this: Here is an interesting question, who is better? With Donovan Mitchell or Devin Booker as the two options.
Scott has a terrific balance of die-hard Jazz and Suns fans that follow him so it definitely wasn’t biased at all.
Scott said, “I just don’t think enough people were asking this question, it was a new concept of creating a poll like this so I just had to jump at the opportunity and change the game.”
Devin Booker won every single poll from August 1st to August 31st, which means the debate is over in convincing fashion. There is nothing Jazz fans can do about it.
I asked Ben Dowsett what his thoughts were and he said,
“Look, it’s no secret I’ve always thought Mitchell was better, but after seeing Booker dominate him in Scott’s polls I’ve come to the conclusion that I’m probably just biased. The results have changed my mind and opened my eyes.”
I also caught up with Jazz coach Quin Snyder who was quoted saying,
“I know I shouldn’t say this publicly, but we’d be in much better shape with Booker rather than Mitchell. The poll numbers do not lie.”
31 polls. Millions of votes. The blood, sweat and tears that went into making this month-long extravaganza happen.
Scott was invited on the Ellen Show, The Jump, Sportscenter and many other popular shows for his effort, but he ultimately declined because the fame was too much for him, he just wanted to go back to making properly-timed Torey Lovullo jokes and his classic “another target off the board for the Suns” tweets.
At the end of the day, Booker is better and we thank Scott for his service.
