Where to see him: Mountain Dew Rising Stars Game (Friday 7 p.m. ET) & Verizon Slam Dunk Contest (Saturday 8 p.m. ET)
Although Mitchell is making his All-Star Weekend debut at the dunk contest, the University of Louisville product appears to be on a path to the big game on Sunday in years to come.
The 21-year-old has been jumping out of the gym through his fist 50-plus games as an NBA player. Mitchell, at 6’3”, may be a bit short to be an NBA shooting guard, but he shares the body type and some of the skills of future Hall of Famer Dwyane Wade.
Mitchell will participate in the dunk contest, which is the rawest display of pure athleticism throughout the entire weekend.
