Sure enough, the pairing of Mitchell with Darius Garland is something enticing and intriguing for all NBA fans.
But Mitchell thinks he’s more than just someone who can move the ball and shoot well.
Donovan Mitchell looking forward to changing the perception of his defense this season: "It’s not the ability, I can play defense, I know that for a fact. I haven’t shown that & that’s what I’m looking forward to do here. Top 5 defense, I’m not here to bring that down." #Cavs pic.twitter.com/1AswJkSWeD
