Charlotte Bobcat Al Jefferson Hosts Fifth Annual Basketball Camp

Posted: Updated:

Today marks the end of Al Jefferson's fifth annual basketball camp.

The 10th-year NBA veteran's camp hosted 402 campers over three days.

The clinic has instructed more than 2,000 campers in its five-year existence, an achievement that ranks atop the Prentiss native's basketball experiences.

"Oh, it'd have to be top three - if not one - because to me this is what it's all about," says Jefferson.

As for Jefferson's NBA career, his roots seem to prepare him well for the upcoming season, his first with the Bobcats.

"People try to make a big deal about small market cities as far as me signing with Charlotte, and I told them, 'Where I'm from, it's a small town - 2,500 people - and I had great success here, and Charlotte's way bigger than Prentiss so to me Charlotte is a big market'," says Jefferson.
