The legend of Jared Jordan Marist star Jared Jordan may be the next Steve Nash Marist's J-Jo led the nation in assists in each of the last 2 seasons. One summer day 11 years ago, I'd just moved to Hartford, Conn., and on my third afternoon I found my way up the block to the park and a pickup hoop game. It was your typical city playground tableau, a bunch of African-American guys in their teens and 20s, plus me, thirtysomething white guy. And this little 11-year-old white kid. The kid was tiny.

P.S.

Sorry I hadn't noticed it was already posted, Dave. I guess you got all those JJ photos added to our galllery?
