Up Close and Personal With Kyrylo Fesenko

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".

Jensen said:

  • 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.

Andrea said:

  • 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.

I once saw Karl Malone on the Sky Coaster at Lagoon... it was awesome. That's about all the Jazz experiences for me! That's way cool for the kids!
