"When I was in Atlanta," Williams said, "we went through a little stage where we were tearing guys’ shirts off when they weren’t looking. And I was out there talking to Josh [Smith], and Zaza [Pachulia] came and got me."
But Williams had payback in mind for the Hawks’ center.
"I told him my first foul was going to be for him tonight," he said, laughing. "No, I’ll get him when the time is right, I’m sure."
The Jazz on Saturday celebrated the 30th anniversary of the Junior Jazz program, the basketball league for kids that also allows children to interact with representatives from the Jazz organization.
Corbin has been active with Junior Jazz dating back to his days as a player. He said he once went to Hawaii with the program to represent the Jazz.
"It’s a tremendous program for a pro organization to be a part of," he said, "to give back to the youth of the community, especially as young as they go in the Junior Jazz program."
Each summer, Jazz players go on a Junior Jazz Summer Tour. In the past, that included legends John Stockton and Karl Malone. Current Jazz players to participate have been DeMarre Carroll, Jeremy Evans, Mo Williams and Favors.
