That’s a nice tribute from Gurley to Mitchell.
Gurley, 25, had 1,251 rushing yards last year and led the league with 17 rushing touchdowns and 4.9 yards per carry. He is dealing with arthritis in his knee and hoping to work past that. Mitchell, who turns 23 in early September, is entering his third season in the NBA. He made the All-Rookie team in his first season and averaged 23.8 points per game last season.
