The 2017 NCAA Champion North Carolina Tar Heels recognized some of the team’s accomplishments during the previous campaign last Friday in Chapel Hill.
Among the Championship banner, a new jersey was hung by some all-time greats recognized by the university.
Consensus first-team All-American, ACC Player of the Year, NCAA Champion and recent Kings draftee Justin Jackson’s No. 44 UNC jersey was displayed in the same vein as Lakers great James Worthy, NBA All-Star Antawn Jamison, and arguably the greatest player to play the game Michael Jordan.
A humbling honor for a player who no doubt wants to continue to add to his award case as he enters his first year in the NBA.
