Although Donovan Mitchell has taken the Cleveland Cavaliers and their fans by storm, his backcourt mate, Darius Garland, is still a star in his own right.
During a media session on Thursday, he was seen eating a bag of chips that appeared to have an image of his face on it.

It was a bag of “Crunchland Chips,” which is a product of Garland teaming up with Pittsburgh-based PLB Sports and Entertainment.
These chips will reportedly be available soon in markets throughout the Cleveland area, and they will be available in multiple flavors, including sea salt and barbecue.
The company also has a product called “Chubb Crunch,” a brand of cereal with the likeness of Cleveland Browns star running back Nick Chubb.
Garland Has Been A Treat For The Cavs And Their Fans
Last season, his third in the NBA, Garland went from a player who had potential to a player who is the real deal.
He got his first All-Star nod as a result of averaging 21.7 points and 8.6 assists while shooting 38.3 percent from 3-point range.
This season, he has improved his 3-point shooting accuracy to 39.7 percent, and he has helped Cleveland’s 3-point shooting improve significantly compared to last season.
His ball-handling skills are impressive, and they may even remind some Cavs fans a little of Kyrie Irving.
Garland’s biggest highlight so far this season was his 51-point game against the Minnesota Timberwolves on November 13, which came on 16-of-31 overall shooting and 10-of-15 from beyond the arc.
He certainly looks to be on his way to his second All-Star Game appearance, not to mention his first trip to the NBA playoffs.
