January Fan of the Month
February 1, 2010
Congratulations to my January Fan of the Month – Jonathan J. from Ontario, Canada (Age 16)!
“Hey Jalen! I’m from Canada, and Raptors are my #1 team. I’ve been a big fan of your game ever since I started watching you play. As a 6’8 forward with point guard/play-maker skills; that’s pretty great. When I found out that you got traded to Toronto I was ecstatic, so happy. You immediately became my favourite player in the entire NBA as well as my role model. I immediately bought your Raptors jersey and wore it all the time. During every game I watched, I would always have the jersey on, and I’d cheer my loudest when you got the ball and scored! When was a kid, I found out you had a website and a fan club. I signed up right away for the fan pack & pretty much checked the mail everyday for the fan pack to come in, and I was so happy when it did arrive. It was a major disappointment to see you leave Toronto, but I still followed you play in New York/Phoenix. I would watch your games whenever they showed on T.V. Now seeing you as an ESPN analyst, I always try to catch you on T.V, if not, I always watch your YouTube videos & still enjoy to see some of your NBA highlights! I’m also a fan of him on Facebook. I think I deserve to be Jalen’s number 1 fan, because I truly think that I am, my friends think so as well! You’re my favourite player not only because of your basketball skills, but also because off your off-court personality. You seem like a very down to earth person which I admire about you. So make me the fan of the month Jalen! You’re my number one player ever to hit the NBA court, and you’ll always be! From Jonathan J.”
