I recently did an interview with Felix and I hope all of my readers will go to and enjoy the JAM Zone and support fan basketball!

1. How will the Jam compete with the other Florida teams?
The best way to compete is through performance! We'll just out work & out perform the other professional teams in our state, division, and in the ABA! That is flat out the best way to compete in anything you do! Performance allows our franchise to achieve the desired success that we are seeking and that will allow us to compete and become the Elite & Premiere Franchise/Team in our State and throughout ALL of the ABA! It also helps to have an experienced coach such as Coach T. Incidentally, Coach T was just named in an article as one of the top 10 Pro Coaches not in the NBA ( )!

2. What system will Coach Tucker use?
The system that we use is based on basic fundamentals of playing the game of basketball. We work to do the little things whether it be offensively, defensively, fast-break, or in special situations. We break the game down and teach the game! Pro Basketball is no different than playing basketball on any other level of play. You have to execute the basics to be very good! You'll find that we'll play a fast-paced game and that we'll defend with relentless pressure. But we'll also play well together and we'll always play the game hard. Our style will be enjoyable for all to watch and people will leave our JAM HOME GAMES at the UNF Arena wanting to come back and see more of our Jacksonville Jam!!!

3. Will the team do any work in the community?
Being an integral part of the community is key to our success here in Jacksonville. We have already established great relationships with organizations such as the YMCA, Boys and Girls Club and Junior Achievement. We look to expand our presence through the community by being actively involved in charitable functions and community and civic events. I don’t know if you noticed, but we do have THE most innovative and unique MASCOT TEAM in all of professional Sports: The JAM Squad! The JAM Squad’s mission is to be an essential part of our community involvement. They’ve already appeared in several functions throughout the city and are planned to be at several functions throughout the community at events such as the Boys and Girls National Kids Day Celebration and are even the HOSTS of an MS Society Fund raising event in August.

4. If you played in the NBA what team would you like to be on?
Growing up as a kid I was a devout Knick fan and would have loved to play for them. Now I am a devout JAM fan and hope that we can bring the fun and excitement of great basketball and fun to all JAM fans worldwide to have them target the JAM as their team to be a part of!

5. Thanks you your time and if you anything else to say to our readers you can.
I want to thank you very much for your interest in our Jacksonville Jam Professional Basketball Organization! We are very excited about our franchise and the future of professional basketball in Jacksonville, FL and in all of Florida. We feel we will put an exciting product on court for all to enjoy and support during the upcoming ABA season and into the future. We want Jam Basketball to be known throughout the State of Florida, all over the USA, & Worldwide. Jacksonville Jam Basketball will be Fun & Exciting and we look forward to bringing Professional Basketball, JAM STYLE to fans in Jacksonville and Worldwide in the coming seasons and years...
