Fesenko Friday has a 9'5" standing reach

The good news about this play is that it was a very solid dunk, on a very solid night where the Utah Jazz beat the Dallas Mavericks 97 - 88. More than that, though, was that Kyrylo Fesenko had a very solid game as well -- 8 points (4/5 fg), 4 rebounds, 3 blocks, only 1 turn over, and only 3 fouls in over 15 minutes of action. The Jazz beat Dallas, in a game where we were without Carlos Boozer and Mehmet Okur -- and to be honest, a lot of that was because Fes locked it down inside.

Of course, there *is* bad news too. The bad news is that this game took place on December 26th, 2008 -- which was four seasons ago. Fes showed some good things when he was here, but was not capable, or available, or offered a serious opportunity to contribute regularly. If he had more games like this, and less non-games perhaps he would still be in the NBA today?
