Earlier this week, the story came out that U.S. Olympic figure skating champion Nathan Chen is an NBA fanatic. He’s constantly watching games while he’s on the road, and he even created a burner Twitter account so that he can follow the NBA without being distracted by figure skating news.

Chen is native of Salt Lake City, so it should come as little surprise that his favorite team is the Utah Jazz. As you might expect, Chen is also a big fan of Donovan Mitchell’s.

The feeling appears to be mutual.

Mitchell, who is participating in the Slam Dunk Contest tonight at the same time as the Louisville-North Carolina game (not bitter), put on a show last night at the Rising Stars Game.

Excited for the encore. Just gonna have to catch it on DVR.
