The Utah Jazz announced today that the team has signed a multi-year partnership agreement with United Fuel Supply for a new on-court branding space at EnergySolutions Arena. Two United Fuel Supply marks have been installed on the floor space known as the apron, which is the out-of-bounds areas in front of the home and visitor team benches for NBA games. This new, highly-visible court placement has already been sold by a third of the NBA teams as first-time inventory. “Jazz players fuel up before they take the court for a game, and the apron placement serves as a brand trigger on the importance of energy,” said Chris Baum, senior vice president of corporate partnerships for Miller Sports Properties. “United Fuel Supply is a break-out company, and the in-arena and television exposure gives them a significant presence at Utah Jazz games.” NBA.com

While some took Cleveland guard Dion Waiters to task last week, speculating about why he missed the national anthem before the Cavs-Jazz game, Enes Kanter took a different approach. Kanter, a devout Muslim, took to the Internet to voice his support for a fellow member of his faith. In doing so, the Utah Jazz player promoted unity across national, sports and religious borders. “We (are) all a big family,” Kanter wrote on Twitter. “Doesn't matter what religion you are in or your country or your skin color. We should all respect and love each other.” Deseret News

Jazz management has requested that players from the U.S. put their hands on their heart, and the team often has more do so than many NBA squads. Not all international players, even on the Jazz, make that patriotic American gesture. But Kanter, who returns to Turkey but also lives in Chicago each offseason, believes it’s a special way for him to show respect to his home away from home. Deseret News


Karl Malone and John Stockton are followed by a player whose jersey was just recently retired by the Jazz and another one that gets booed when he returns to Salt Lake City.
