Donovan Mitchell is making headlines after his incredible performance against the Chicago Bulls- Mitchell went on to create history by scoring 71 points leading the Cavaliers to victory with a 145-134 margin.
The team from Cleaveland was over the moon after Mitchell’s achievement, and many expected the team to celebrate with a grand party, but did that actually happen? Well… NO! Instead, the team sent their prime player for a drug test. Talk about being thankful towards the guy!
Apparently, there are rules regarding drug tests in the NBA- the collective bargaining agreement between the NBA and the National Basketball Players Association says that players are usually tested for PEDs four times during the season and twice during the offseason.
However, Donovan Mitchell, who single-handedly won the game for his side, must not have expected something like a drug test just after his heroic performance. Hence, fans see the player reacting to the drug test incident on Twitter.
