Jazz Rookie Donovan Mitchell Surprises Mom With New Car


There has been a lot of buzz around this year’s rookie class so far. Positive hype around players like Jayson Tatum (who has been absolutely brilliant to start his rookie year), Dennis Smith Jr, De’Aaron Fox and Kyle Kuzma, negative hype around players like Markelle Fultz and Josh Jackson, and also mixed hype around players like Lonzo Ball and Frank Ntilikina.

One player though has been performing brilliantly and flying under the radar, Donovan Mitchell. The 13th pick of this year’s draft is the Jazz’s second leading scorer, averaging 14.8 points, 3.1 rebounds, 2.8 assists, 1.4 steals and 0.5 blocks per game.

This past week, Mitchell used one of his first rookie checks to buy his mom a brand new car. He posted a video of him surprising her on Instagram, captioning it:


“Words can’t describe how happy I am to be able to give you this car! I remember listening to a song walking around Louisville after being in the gym at 2 am and I texted you and said said I’m gonna make sure you never have to work again! This is just the beginning! I love you so much thank you for everything you have done for me…. thank you.”
