SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Utah Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell continued his shoe giveaway tradition after a 24-point performance against the Los Angeles Clippers by giving away a pair of his signature shoes to a young fan who is currently fighting brain cancer. The fan was recently honored by BYU football as a “True Blue” hero.

Mitchell gave away a pair of his Adidas D.O.N Issue #1 shoes in a purple mountain “Mailman” colorway following the Jazz’s 110-96 win over the Clippers on Wednesday, October 30.
