Another interesting note about this event is that it won’t conflict General Conference for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. As someone who attends conference, I have routinely had a hard time with wanting to watch/cover this event while also going to/watching conference. Now, the first Saturday session of conference ends at 12:00 PM MT and LDS Jazz fans can then switch over to watch the practice. Just add another feather to Ryan Smith’s cap for making the fan experience better for Jazz fans. Considering that demographic in Utah, why wasn’t this done earlier? Thanks, Ryan Smith!
Here’s the link for the event as well as the details.
