HoopsHype Jonas Jerebko rumors

December 3, 2012 Updates

SLAM: You hosted a basketball camp this past summer in Michigan. How’d that go? Jonas Jerebko: It went great. That’s something I always wanted to do. I kind of wanted to do it at home—coming from Sweden, I wanted to give an NBA experience to the kids over here. But I just felt like the best situation was in Detroit and I wanted to have my own basketball camp. We got about 50 people signed up for it, and then we decided to fill the camp up—we wanted to have a full camp—so we got in contact with an AAU team down in downtown Detroit, and we gave that team free scholarships for the whole camp and we just decided to fill the camp up with free scholarships. We had kids from all over Michigan send applications via YouTube on why they should come to the camp for free. Kids were driving three hours [to come]; we had kids from downtown who couldn’t even get to the arena, so we went and picked ‘em up. The kids got free t-shirts and gear—Lil Wayne was really nice and sent a lot of Trukfit gear. SLAM

Jonas Jerebko tried his best not to say much, and verbally, he succeeded. The Detroit Pistons power forward's fiery eyes showed how he really felt about discussing his demotion this week. "You never want to sit on the bench," Jerebko said before tonight's game against the Phoenix Suns. "So I'm just going to keep working on my game and keep doing what I do. Just be ready when my number's called." Booth Newspapers

Thomas Robinson: "I'm not going to stop being a tough player. I'm not going to continue to elbow people either. ...But you know, I'm not going to take that (aggressiveness) away, that's just who I am as a player. And like I said, that was out of character. There's such thing as going too far and I went too far. So I'm still going to continue to be aggressive but I won't be doing anything illegal. I did it this far without being illegal, so I know how to do it." Sulia

The leader of the group – the massive, wide-bodied Mahorn – was in Sleep Train Arena, calling the game for Pistons radio, and he thought Robinson went over the edge. "That was dirty," Mahorn said Thursday when reached on his cellphone. "We all have mental lapses, but you don't take your frustration out in a way that will hurt somebody. I didn't have the physical gifts or the flight of a Dominique Wilkins. I used my body and my width to position. I would use my big (butt) to clear some room. "But we never tried to bust somebody in the mouth. You don't hit somebody in the face. You don't want to be that guy, because now everything he does is going to be looked at. The referees remember."

Sweden won't know until the day of their clash with Bulgaria on Thursday if Detroit Pistons forward Jonas Jerebko can shake off an ankle injury and play in the crunch game. Jerebko got hurt in the second half of Monday night's home win against Luxembourg when he stepped on an opponent's ankle. The Swedish Federation has announced: "It's gratifying that there is no serious injury, but it is too early to say if Jonas can play against Bulgaria in the EuroBasket qualifier on 30 August. "We will take the decision on the day of the game," said team manager Jonte Karlsson. FIBA Europe

Pistons forward Jonas Jerebko is offering scholarships for his basketball camp June 18-21 at Rochester Adams High. "There are some children who never receive the opportunity to play a team sport," Jerebko said in a release. "A sport cannot fill the void of where a mom or dad should be, but the elements of team can grow a child strong in spite of his or her situation." Detroit Free Press

But when the Swedes participate in the Eurobasket 2013 Qualifiers, from mid-August through mid-September, Jerebko won't be wearing one. “I'm very disappointed,” he said. “Of course, I want to represent my country and play. But I'm looking forward to next summer and joining them again, and I wish them all the luck this summer. I'm definitely going to keep a close eye on it. “I know my teammates, on that team, will understand my decision after coming off an injury like that, so I'm not really worried about it. I'm just looking forward to playing with them next summer and I wish them all the luck.” Booth Newspapers

Jerebko shot 8-for-14 from the field — including 3 of 4 from 3-point range — and scored 16 points in the first half as Detroit built a 52-44 advantage at the intermission. “Jonas is great,” said coach Lawrence Frank. “One of the things that was a consistent thing was how hard he worked at rehab. He basically lived with Arnie Kander. It speaks volumes about his dedication to come back from an injury like that. Meeting Jonas and seeing how hard he works you can see why. “When you look at the two preseason games and now we've played four regular-season games, each game he gains more confidence and more rhythm and he looks more and more comfortable out there. That's an encouraging sign.” Booth Newspapers
