Likewise, Donte has Italian roots, making him eligible to apply for an Italian passport and play for their national team. NSS Sports magazine noted that his nickname "The Big Ragu" was due to his red hair and connection to the Italian Ragu.
DiVincenzo has shown impressive abilities with his 6 feet 4 inches tall body, and his drive to win was always apparent on the court.

Don Nelson was coaching then, and John was spotted shortly in Philadelphia because of his unique jersey.
With his love for the game, he later became a basketball coach for kids at a middle school in Delaware. Meanwhile, he also taught his son about the basics to lay the roots for his future potential.
In an interview with The Athletic, he said that John had helped him develop the fundamentals of basketball. He always advised Donte to hurry up and practice rebounds to build his foundation every time they met.
After many years, when his son brought him inside for a tour following his NBA draft, he was excited to visit his favorite team getting mesmerized by the interiors.
