It’s not surprising to see Mitchell get so much support from the fanbase.
He is the biggest name with the Cavaliers and is still doing impressive things during his second season with the team.
There is a very good chance that he can make his way into the All-Star lineup next month.
However, it’s a bit disappointing to Cavaliers fans to not see any other players.
Some expected athletes like Darius Garland, Jarrett Allen, Evan Mobley, or Max Strus to make the cut.
So far this season, Mitchell is averaging 27.2 points, 5.3 rebounds, and 5.7 assists on 45.5% from the field and 35% from the three-point line.
This isn’t his first great season and he has been chosen for the All-Star Game four times before.
The Cavaliers are currently the sixth-best team in the East with a 21-15 record, meaning they are in the middle of the pack with every other team in their conference.
Mitchell might make the All-Star Game but what is more important to him is the success of his team.
So he’d much rather make the Finals than the All-Star Game.
