Happy Birthday Donovan Mitchell

We’d like to wish Utah Jazz’s golden rookie Donovan Mitchell a happy 22nd birthday on September 7. Mitchell, who is affectionately known as “Spida,” proved himself to be the Utah Jazz’s ace during the 2017-2018 season. His impact during the second half of the season resulted in the Jazz earning a spot in the NBA Playoffs and a run to the Western Conference semifinals. We’re excited to see what he accomplishes in the upcoming season.
