After the Jazz’s first preseason win, Mitchell posted on his Instagram account “Good to be back.” Marbury, clearly a fan of Mitchell, replied to the post and told the Jazz star to “go for MVP.”
It is nice to see another star giving Mitchell words of encouragement. Last season, we saw stars praising him and giving advice after games that the Jazz guard still carries with him to this day.
