NBA, the reason for a jersey number: Donovan Mitchell and his 45. VIDEO

by archysport

Donovan Mitchell is not the only player in the history of the Utah Jazz to have chosen the n°45 – but certainly the most famous (although in 1988, in his only season in Salt Lake City, “Chocolate Thunder” Darryl Dawkins also wore it). The reasons behind Louisiville’s choice of its number have to do with its plus great passion as a kid (baseball, also preferred to basketball) and al his favorite player on the NBA courts (obviously Michael Jordan). “When MJ left the NBA to try his hand at baseball, he chose the No. 45 and then I thought that I could have adopted it too, to pay homage to two of my great passions with a single number “, says Mitchell, whose father (Donovan Sr.) he was first minor league player on diamonds and then director of players relations per i New York Mets, instilling a passion for the American “national passtime” in his son.
