Simone Fontecchio was a big part of the Utah Jazz family scrimmage tonight. On the court and on the sidelines.
As a ”baptism of fire, ” the rookies of the Salt Lake City franchise had to sing a song in front of the fans in the arena, and the song chosen was… ”Baby Shark. ”

We did not know this singing side of Simo Fontecchio, super gassed in interpreting a very famous piece!
Surely being a father helped him because this ditty is one of the children ’s favorites, which went viral precisely because all the parents sang/reproduced it with the children present and shared it on social media.
This is still a great way to be loved and well-liked by the Salt Lake City fan base. Of course, cheering on teammates and singing a tune is not enough to deserve the NBA. Fontecchio will have to prove on the court that he has what it takes to be among the most and the strongest. If it doesn ’t happen later, it ’s not a problem because we would welcome him back with open arms in Europe, maybe even in Italy.
Let ’s see if he can prove his full value as early as Tuesday night in preseason against coach Gregg Popovich ’s San Antonio Spurs.
