Okay, so I took the kids to a Jazz Clinic. As you can tell all Carson wanted to do, was stare at the size of this 7 foot- 290 lb guy. But the rest of the kids had a lot of fun. After the clinic, I asked them what they learned.
- When you are a rookie you are not supposed to talk, and you are supposed to bring doughnuts to practice.
- Fesenko's best friend is Andrei Kirilenko.
- Sportsmanship is important.
- Jerry Sloan is a hard coach to play for.
- If an older player tells you to do something, you better do it.
- Even though you play for the Utah Jazz, it is still possible to miss a shot.
- Never say, " I can't".
- Coach Sloan is tough.
- Fesenko isn't a very good free throw shooter, but he is good at blocks and dunks.
- Sportmanship is another word for respect.
- Fesenko and Almond take turns bringing doughnuts.
- Fesenko does not have a drivers license.
- When you dribble a ball, don't dribble in front of you, dribble to the side.
- He is really big.
- He can shoot a ball from a long ways.
- He has yellow hair like me.
Well there you have it! That is what one hour with a Jazz Player will do.
