Mitchell Meets Tiny Viral Fan, Gives Her His Shoes
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – A little girl recently went viral on social media for throwing a fit because she wanted to stay up and watch Utah Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell play. After meeting the Jazz superstar, she now has a great keepsake and memory.
On March 22nd, Mitch Tulane uploaded a video to Twitter of his daughter, Evie, refusing to go to bed because she wanted to stay up watch Mitchell play.
I’ll make sure you guys have tickets to our last home game if it’s not past her bed time 🤷🏾♂️🤷🏾♂️😂😂 https://t.co/DrKjn30RCe

The tweet went viral earlier this week, catching Mitchell’s eye, who then offered to make sure that Evie and her family could attend the Jazz’s final regular season home game against Denver.
After warming up for the game against the Nuggets, Mitchell found the Tulane family and following his usual pregame routine, gave away his sneakers, this time to Evie.
In return, the Tulane family gave Mitchell a box of cookies, which he accepted with a smile.
The Jazz’s game against the Nuggets will tip off Tuesday at 7 p.m. and be broadcast on AT&T SportsNet.
