In less than two seasons as a professional basketball player, Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell has earned plenty of recognition — he’s won a Slam Dunk competition during All-Star Weekend, he’s been twice named the Western Conference Player of the Week by the NBA, and he’s earned myriad praise for his willingness to embed himself in the local community through public appearances and acts of charity.
And now he has a bridge named after him.
In a ceremony that took place Tuesday afternoon, the pedestrian bridge at the 100 S. Rio Grande Street corner of the Gateway shopping mall — a mere two blocks from the front entrance to Vivint Smart Home Arena — was named in Mitchell’s honor, and a graffiti-style mural of him commissioned by the Gateway and the Jazz was unveiled.
