Christmas came early this year for Utah Jazz Rookie, Donovan Mitchell’s mom. Mitchell’s on the court production has made the Jazz organization proud of trading for him on draft day, but he has made them even more proud of what he just recently did off the court. When the Utah Jazz draft a player, they aren’t just drafting him, they’re drafting his entire family. Luckily for the Mitchells, (according to a KSL article) they are used to sticking together as a family.
One month into his professional career, the rookie made a veteran move as he showed appreciation for the woman who raised him by surprising her with a brand-new Audi vehicle. It was a moment he has been waiting for the past few years. He made that well-known in the Instagram caption:
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 ❤️ @nicole3mitch …. thank you @audigreenwich for the help!! @audi
Mom deserve’s more than just an Instagram shoutout right? He also posted his beautiful gift to his mom on Twitter:
