Billboard-schmealboard! Today Donovan Mitchell had a bridge dedicated to him. Donovan has shown appreciation and love to Utah and Jazz fans in the two years he has been on the team. He has shown love to a fanbase and state that rarely receive such love. Today that love was reciprocated with a bridge dedication and a mural.
The mural was painted by The Graffiti Guys. The ceremony was conducted by the president of Vestar, David J. Larcher.
Thanks to Eric of the Tribune for posting this video of Donovan:

My favorite line from today’s dedication:
“It’s gonna be a fun two months. Three months. We’re playing into June.” — Donovan Mitchell— Teach Me How To Kuzma (@DJJazzyJody) March 26, 2019
Donovan was of course all about the fans:
