If you are like most Pistons fans you have adopted a new face to root for. Since Jonas Jerebko has taken Tayshaun Prince’s spot in the starting lineup he’s been gaining followers with every rebound, steal, assist and dunk.
He’s quite a stir in his home country, being that he’s the first Swedish born player in the NBA and now he’s got a special place for himself in “The D.”
From Team Need4Sheed member BJ:
During last night’s game one of – what I can only assume was – The Palace promotional workers started passing out viking helmets to the fans sitting in our row. Turns out, for every point Jerebko scored, another helmet was given. I accounted for point number 7 and, after a couple sitting next to us left, more fans were asked to move up a row and wear the helmets to finish off the 10 points he eventually earned. Good times, indeed.
And Jonas seems to enjoy it.
Seems more people than I thought had the Need4Swede!
