Donovan Mitchell Quickly Becoming a Social Media Fan Favorite

Donovan Mitchell Quickly Becoming a Social Media Fan Favorite

And a player recruiter? Donovan Mitchell is the newest player for the Utah Jazz, and he’s wasted no time getting active on social media. If you haven’t already, give him a follow @spidadmitchell. Here he is giving credit where credit is due to a leader and anchor for the team. Buying some goodwill with Rudy Gobert can go a long ways, especially for a rookie. I’m sure Rudy will still make him do the rookie dance off, carry a child’s backpack, and stuff his car full of popcorn! @rudygobert27 congrats big bro on first team All Defense — Donovan Mitchell (@spidadmitchell) June...

Rudy Gobert Is Swoll as H*ck

We’ve got an early #MuscleWatch contender. We’ve got an early contender for the #MuscleWatch2017 crown and it’s none other than the Utah Jazz’s own Rudy Gobert. Rudy Gobert made a stop at P3 in Santa Barbara to get his Adonis on, and it looks like it’s paying off. Check it out. Always good to stop by. @p3sportscience ♨️ A post shared by Rudy Gobert (@rudygobert27) on Jun 23, 2017 at 2:39pm PDT Daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaang, Rudy. Lookin’ good.

NBA draft 2017 live stream: Start time, TV coverage, schedule, and how to watch online

It’s going to be a big night for the Jazz, here’s how fans can catch it all! The 2017 NBA Draft is nigh! Or near! Or more precisely, now! We’ve seen a few of these under the Dennis Lindsey era of the Utah Jazz. In 2013 the team made a number of trades, finishing the night with a few rookies (Trey Burke, Rudy Gobert, and Raul Neto in order) but none of them were selected with a Jazz draft pick. In 2014 Utah had a Top 5 pick, and a bunch of other ones, but mostly stood pat (and came back to the 801 with Dante Exum and Rodney Hood). The next season saw another lotto pick come Lindsey’s...
