Kevin Durant says Donovan Mitchell 'blessed' to be in his current situation

JUNE 25 2017 FILE

He has been shooting 33.9 percent from beyond the arc throughout his rookie season.

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. Griffin, who was unanimously voted the NBA Rookie of the Year in 2011, cracked a amusing joke about Mitchell's wardrobe selection. The 76ers' rookie had a full year to watch and learn from the bench while he prepared to take over as Philadelphia's leader.

"I didn't know until I heard half the crowd yelling at me that I had one more three to make", Mitchell said of the shot. I think I have been playing solid all year.

Wyandotte Teachers Ready for Another Week In Oklahoma City
They are asking the Oklahoma Legislature to provide $50 million more in funding and to repeal a capital gains tax exemption. In Kentucky, teachers also protested the passage of a pension bill, which they called a "bait-and-switch" move.

This, of course, is in reference to the face that Simmons was drafted in 2016 but sat out last season with an injury which, in Mitchell's eyes, means the LSU product is not, in fact, a rookie.

But the National Basketball Association allowed Blake Griffin to win rookie of the year after he missed his first season with a knee injury and didn't play any games. Clearly, I'm not the one losing sleep over this.

"No, he's implying that I am a rookie because it's my first season", Simmons said when told Mitchell's sweatshirt implied Simmons was not a rookie.

McGregor hasn't fought for UFC since November 2016 and was stripped this week of the 155-pound championship he had never defended. The group went down to the loading dock where some fighters who were to participate in Saturday's event were getting on buses .

If Mitchell has been absolutely outstanding, Simmons has been equally as incredible.

"People who know the game know who the better player is", Simmons said. The Australian native had posted at least 10 points, five rebounds and five assists in 57 games this season.

"That's why I tweeted that [Waka Flocka] GIF with the caption, 'Okay.,'" Mitchell said.

Mohamed Salah opened the scoring in the 12th minute before Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain netted a stunner from range. We are going to pick a team to win the game, there is no doubt about that". "Now it is tough", he added.

But Simmons disregarded the outfit, "If that's the only argument he has, I'm in pretty good shape". And his team is sitting in the third spot in the Eastern Conference, enjoying a league-high 15-game winning streak. "I think the record that Donovan cares about is our team's record, and he's taken the opportunities that the game presents to him, and obviously we're thrilled for him that he did that".
