article imageNBA: Jazz visit JFK site a day before playing Mavericks

By Layne Weiss     Nov 23, 2013 in Sports
Dallas - The Utah Jazz visited the site of President John F. Kennedy's assassination Friday night, a day before they are set to play the Dallas Mavericks.
Friday, November, 22, marked the 50th anniversary of the assassination of John F. Kennedy.
On Thursday, the Jazz visited the Sixth Floor Museum where Lee Harvey Oswald is said to have shot JFK from, The Associated Press reports.
Members of the Jazz took pictures both at the museum and outside Dealey Plaza, the place where JFK was assassinated.
"It was a great experience for me," rookie guard Trey Burke said. "At the book depository, everybody had their own answer. The dialogue we had amongst each other was exciting."
This is not the first trip the Jazz has taken with historical significance. Previously, the team has visited the National Civil Rights Museum in Memphis, and the Oklahoma City bombing National Memorial.
"I knew the history of what happened," guard Diante Garrett said, "but this was all the details. Things like where the shots came from."
