Former Utah Jazz star Thurl Bailey inspired many young basketball players at the local Utah Jazz Clinic, held last Monday at Delta High School.

Area players aged 3 and up came to hear the 6’11” Bailey give insight on playing techniques, staying positive and motivated and never giving up at the clinic, which was sponsored by Utah Jazz Basketball and Millard County Recreation. Bailey, who played in the NBA from 1983 to 1999, also showed off his stellar three-point shots, dunking ability, and one-on-one playing skills with the kids.

Near the clinic’s end, Bailey also autographed cards, photos and basketballs and agreed to pose for family photos.
