Donovan Mitchell with the fastball (pass) to the outside of the paint!

THANK GOD Donovan Mitchell decided to go with basketball instead of baseball.

Donovan Mitchell played both baseball and basketball while growing up. He even wanted to follow in his father’s footsteps as a professional baseball player. He probably would have had an injury caused by a collision at home plate during high school not changed his plans for a summer. Luckily, we still get to enjoy Donovan Mitchell’s skill set as a pitcher/short stop on the basketball court. Check out this fastball to the outside of plate—er, I mean—paint to Georges Niang.

And in case you needed the GIF version:

Donovan Mitchell may have been close to being an All Star baseball player, but thank god he chose basketball.
