Utah Jazz point guard Donovan Mitchell recently signed a rookie max extension deal worth $195M over 5 years, and he celebrated by taking a dip in the pool.

Did anyone else notice him toss his phone before he jumped in?
Mitchell is very deserving of this amazing deal because he was straight balling in the NBA Bubble Playoffs. He averaged 37.3 points in the Denver Nuggets series, and he joined Michael Jordan and Allen Iverson as the only players to have two 50-plus-point games in a playoff series.
Mitchell has an impressive career average of 22.2 points and 4 assist in the regular season, and an even more impressive playoff career average of 27.3 points in 23 career playoff games.
Utah recognizes they have a superstar on their hands and they are compensating him as such.
Congratulations to Donovan Mitchell, and we look forward to seeing him do great things in the NBA.
How would you celebrate if you just came into $195M?
