Utah Jazz Recruit Pint-Size Player

Posted by

It was the perfect way to start the Utah Jazz pre-season game with the combined efforts of the team and the introduction of their new team member JP Gibson.

This 5 year old boy stole the crowd’s attention when he made his first appearance on the court on Tuesday night. He wore the traditional Utah Jazz basketball uniform of dark green and yellow with his last name and the Number 1 at the back. He was lifted by Rudy Gobert as he claimed the team’s victory by dropping the ball in the opponent’s backboard to score 2 points. The crowd gave a round of applause to this boy who has been fighting leukemia for a large portion of his life.

That night, the fans found a new thing to love besides basketball. They shared in the joy JP was experiencing. Quinn Snyder, the new coach, congratulated JP and declared their new team mate as “over the top”.
