Losing in the Western Conference Semifinals to the Los Angeles Clippers really hit the Utah Jazz hard this NBA offseason, especially since they won the first two games of this series and Kawhi Leonard missed the final two games of this series.

Having time to re-group and focus on their goals once again, the Jazz has begun the 2021-22 NBA season as hot as any other team in the league and this could be the year Donovan Mitchell cements himself as one of the best players in the entire league. 

The 25-year-old guard has been one of the most electrifying and dazzling offensive talents in the league over the course of his now 5-year NBA playing career, but this season has a different feel for the 2x All-Star. 

Not only has Mitchell improved as a scorer each of his first four seasons in the league, reaching a career-high 26.4 points per game last season, but he has quickly become the leader of this Utah Jazz organization and is starting to gain more and more national attention.
