The Jordan Experience on MLK Day

I had the privilege of being shadowed by a wonderful young lady who is a die-hard Warriors fan, a really bright young lady and a genuine sweetheart. She followed me around during pre-game work and she sat with me for the entire first quarter. Here is her recap of her experience:

My name is Jordan Fernandez and I am in 5th grade at Northern Light School. Today, I am shadowing Marcus Thompson. It is MLK Jr. day and the Warriors are playing against the Nets. It is really fun being here. I got to interview some of the Warriors and I got to meet some of the people who work here. I would like to do this again because all the players and workers are nice to me.
I interviewed Ekpe Udoh, Brandan Wright, Acie Law, David Lee, and Vladimir Radmanovic. Also, I met Juanika Ellis, Monta Ellis’ wife. He’s my favorite player. I also got to go on the court and see them practice. I was standing next to Monta when he made a 3-pointer backwards!

    Awesome, lucky kid. Well-written too! Hope she gets some extra credit for it 🙂

    the kid has better command of the English language than rusty simmons, that’s for sure.

    I hope she asked Ellis why he doesn’t play defense.
