Throwback: Donovan Mitchell’s EPIC 2018 Fourth Of July
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – How would you react if Utah Jazz mega-star Donovan Mitchell showed up at your Fourth of July party?
Last year some lucky fans actually found out.
On Independence Day 2018 Mitchell tweeted asking his followers, “Where’s the BBQ’s at Salt Lake? Might just pull up…Happy 4th.”

One reply said, “My mom said you can come, but she wants to know if you can bring the hot dog buns.”

It seemed uncommon that an NBA star would just show up to your party, maybe even impossible, but not for Mitchell. He actually stopped at some of the Fourth of July parties around the city.
