Justin Hurtt on ESAKE

Hellenic Basketball Clubs Association hosted on its main site an article about Justin Hurtt. The title of the article is "Mr. Hurtt's painting exhibition" since Hurtt loves painting in and out of basketball courts. The American shares with PAOK's Costas Charalambidis the second place of scoring in Greek Basketball League, average 17.7 points per game. He is first in three pointers, 11 scored out of 20 attempted, and fifth in fouls gained. Thanasis Giaples said that Rethymno Aegean was watching Hurtt for more than a year but managed to sign him this season. Giaples mentions the reliable shot and one-to-one skills of Hurtt but what really defers him is his low profile and humble character, which as the coach says is rare for an American player. The article make special refer at this dunk against Oklahoma for the NCAA.
He wasn't selected in NBA Drafts so he moved to Italy for Pallacanestro Varese, then in Belgium for Mons-Hainaut before he returned to USA and NBA Development League for Iowa Energy. Hurtt admires Lebron  James and Kansas City Chiefs. His dream is to become a cover of the basketball magazine "Slam". In his free time Hurtt paints and sketches and his favorite lesson in school was children literature.
