Donovan Mitchell isn’t just winning over Utah with his play on the court, it’s how he carries himself off it that is impressing.

Mitchell is part of the NBA players’ obsession with the Cheesecake Factory and was eating at one in Utah. That’s when he was approached by a young girl and fan who is a cancer patient at a nearby children’s hospital. She asked for a photo. She got much more.

That’s a class act.
