Monday August 16th at the ESA Plaza is what the NBA should be all about. The attention shouldn’t be on players and owners in verbal wars. The attention shouldn’t be on a player’s trade demand because on one off year. The attention should be on the team and the community coming together.
A few thousand fans were gathered on Monday night for the unveiling of the Jazz’s new uniforms. The players were the models and the fans couldn’t be more excited.
Al Jefferson was cited as saying, wow this many fans comes out for this, I’m afraid for opening night. Jefferson received the most cheers from the crowd. The crowd excited for a new era of Utah Jazz basketball to begin.
Of course no where in the national media was this spectacular event covered. ESPN was too busy telling us about Lebron hating on the Cav’s owner and Melo ’s diss to Denver at his wedding.
