I’d probably take Beal too fwiw I just don’t think it’s a crazy reach to think Mitchell belongs in the discussion. He is easily in the top tier for 2 guards imo. He wins and he’s been uber productive since he was a rookie in the West. And he was awesome in the playoffs last year too.
I don’t consider Kyrie or Harden 2 guards still even in their offense. They are naturally lead guards. They played as PGs their entire career before Brooklyn. I think Paul George would be considered a 3 by most pundits. I would probably classify Butler as a 3 as well. All these guys are interchangeable with the 2 and 3 or 1 and 2 spots. Kind of show what today’s “positionless basketball” meaning really is.
CJ McCollum is another one I really enjoy watching and is under appreciated
