We’ve talked a lot about Jamal Murray around these parts, but you probably don’t “really” know him just yet. I mean, I couldn’t tell you much more about the cape-wearing Canadian other than his stats from the overtime victory over Team USA in the Pan-Am games (22 points, 6 assists).
That’s why we have CoachCal.com. In this edition of their “Meet the Wildcats” series, Murray talks about his family, the people who taught him to love basketball. Some of his earliest memories go back to watching his Father, a track athlete, work out at the gym.
