About Jamario Moon
Jamario Moon: From the Streets to the Court
Jamario Moon was born on June 13, 1980, in Goodwater, Alabama. Growing up, he faced numerous challenges, including poverty and a lack of opportunities. However, he found solace in basketball, which he played on the streets with his friends.
Moon's talent was undeniable, and he eventually caught the attention of college scouts. He attended Meridian Community College in Mississippi, where he played for two years before transferring to the University of Alabama. Despite his impressive skills, Moon went undrafted in the 2001 NBA draft.
Undeterred, Moon continued to play basketball in various leagues, including the USBL and the CBA. In 2005, he was invited to a tryout with the Harlem Globetrotters, where he impressed the team's coaches with his athleticism and versatility.
Moon's big break came in 2007 when he was signed by the Toronto Raptors. He quickly became a fan favorite, thanks to his high-flying dunks and tenacious defense. Moon played for the Raptors for two seasons before being traded to the Miami Heat in 2009.
Moon's NBA career spanned six seasons, during which he played for several teams, including the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Los Angeles Clippers. He also played overseas in leagues such as the Korean Basketball League and the Lebanese Basketball League.
Off the court, Moon is known for his philanthropic work. He has been involved with various charities, including the Make-A-Wish Foundation and the Boys and Girls Club.
Moon's journey from the streets of Goodwater to the NBA is a testament to his perseverance and dedication. He may not have been a household name, but his impact on the game and his community is undeniable.
