Donovan Mitchell seems unfazed by LeBron James’ jokes about the Utah Jazz.
Despite the fact that the Jazz have the best record in the league, both their star players were chosen last by LeBron on Kevin Durant during last week’s NBA All-Star draft.

When asked about why the Jazz players were picked last, LeBron joked that no one ever picked the Jazz even when playing video games.

“There’s no slander tho the Utah Jazz. You’ve got to understand, just like in video games growing up, we never played with Utah. As great as Karl Malone and John Stockton was, we would never pick those guys in video games.”
Ahead of Sunday’s All-Star game, Mitchell was asked about LeBron’s comments and he tried to brush them off as best as he could.
