ARTIS GILMORE BACK TO PLAY IN THE ABA!
The A Train Artis Gilmore will play basketball once again! Back to where he started in the ABA with the Jacksonville Jam! As a Jacksonville resident this is a smart place to play for him. "Artis has had an outstanding career and we felt we should honor that career by bringing him out of retirement for a game," said Felix Krupczynski, a past interview on Basketball Notes by Alex and Owner of the Jacksonville Jam. "At half time, we will pay tribute to his many contributions on and off the court and then retire his #53 jersey in honor of his legacy," Krupczynski added. This will bring a retro feel to the Jams play. Other news on the Jam, they beat the Miami Tropics 103-100 to keep up the nice start to their first season.
