Simmons and Mitchell engaged in a social media beef toward the end of the season with Mitchell arguing that Simmons wasn't really eligible for the award since he was drafted as a rookie in 2016.
Yes, the argument can be made that Simmons didn't deserve to be in the running since he joined the league the year before, but since he failed to play a single game that season due to a foot injury, it was fair to have him in consideration.
Simmons being considered a rookie this year had been a point of contention with Mitchell. Most notable of those was the sweatshirt Mitchell wore to a game with the definition of the word "rookie" on the front.
Simmons responded by dismissing Mitchell as a legitimate candidate for the award.
The award was decided by members of the USA and Canadian sports media and Simmons likely benefited from the date votes had to be cast.
