Donovan Mitchell gets greeted by Magnolia Hotshot veterans.
Players of the Magnolia Hotshots posed for a photo with Utah Jazz rookie sensation Donovan Mitchell shortly before the much-awaited Manila Clasico at the Smart-Araneta Coliseum.
The Hotshots were just waiting in the tunnel for the 2018 NBA Rookie of the Year finalist to emerge from the dressing room, and mobbed him like ants on sugar.
The 13th pick of the 2017 NBA Draft, averaged 20.5 points, and 3.5 assists per game in the regular season, and led in points (24.4 points per game) in the postseason for the re-emerging Jazz squad that lost 4-2 in the Western Conference semifinals against the top-seeded Houston Rockets.
He is in Manila for the first time through the #SpidaInManila tour sponsored by adidas, and will be one of the commentators in the Manila Clasico TV broadcast.
