SALT LAKE CITY — As if he needed another reason for Utah to love him, Jazz star Donovan Mitchell spontaneously paid the iPhone repair costs for a customer in the Apple store who couldn't afford the price Wednesday.

Twitter user Andrew Simeona posted a tweet early the next morning about the incident, which he said happened to his brother.

"I have a brother that’s a little delayed in his development. At the Apple store today he was told by a rep what he'd have to pay to have his iPhone repaired. He couldn't afford it. Spida overheard and covered the cost for him. Donovan is simply the best #takenote," the tweet reads.

The tweet has since received over 7,000 likes and 1,400 retweets as of noon Thursday.

Mitchell himself even retweeted the tweet, saying, "All love ✊🏽 glad I could help!"
