The kids asked Jones what size shoe he wore and how far he could throw. Jones said that he had a whopping shoe size of 17, and said that he can throw the ball from half court.

Jones once vowed that if he ever made it as a professional basketball player, he would interact with children like he had wished his childhood heroes would have done for him.

Jones’ annual basketball camp starts Tuesday at Florida International University.
