It’s just the latest act of kindness for Mitchell, who also gifted Brooks his shoes prior to the game.
The partnership between Mitchell, this foundation, Foot Locker and Adidas is part of a collective effort from group of athletes and influencers, known as The Asterisk Collective.
In the loss, Mitchell scored 34 points and threw down some nasty dunks.
