Jonas the first Swedish born basketball player drafted into the NBA and was picked in the 2nd Round by Joe Dumars, 39th overall. The national media hasn't made as much of a fuss about his Swedish roots as they have about Omri Casspi's partly due to the fact that Swedish people can give a shit about the NBA. Israeli's, on the other hand, are absolutely mad about basketball and are waking up as a country at 4:30 am to watch Omri lose another game on the Kings.
But even if Sweden doesn't care, Jonas' parents do. Here's his mom rooting for her son in yet another Piston's loss last night to the Celtics.
This picture is funny because it reminds me of when my brother used to wear a turtle neck under his basketball jersey in 4th grade. That is all.
