Very cool stuff and here is a short exchange: SLAM: You’re the first NBA player to have come out of Wyoming since the 1960s. Do you feel a little added responsibility because of that? JJ: I know there are a lot of kids up there now that play good basketball. It’s really a small town, so that’s really all there is to do—work on your game, whether it’s basketball, football. Everybody just works on their game out there as much as they could. I felt like it was my job, like I had this opportunity, to let people know where I was from so maybe they can go get some scouts out there. We don’t really get the respect that we deserve because we’re a small town.
