Utah Jazz Notes

Utah Jazz fan’s sunburn honors Dante Exum

First Published      Last Updated Jul 22 2014 05:36 pm

Utah Jazz fans have been excited about the addition of Dante Exum, but this guy took it to another level.

Twitter user @dilldrape7 sent out that picture of himself Saturday, apparently getting the shoulder sunburn from some summer yardwork around his home. Making the best of an unpleasant situation, he drew the outline of an Exum jersey and the rookie's number, 11, mentioning both Exum (@daanteee) and Rodney Hood (@rodneymhood) in separate tweets.

Asked how long it will take to get the paint off his back, he corrected another Twitter user, saying: "It was a sharpie. Maybe a couple of days. But no, it was a spur of the moment thing. Maybe if it wins me a free jersey."

The official Jazz account retweeted the photo Sunday afternoon and the new publicity has already earned the photo 50 more retweets and 88 favorites.

Hopefully he'll find a real jersey to cover up that burn soon.
