What is the Jet Academy you might ask?

NBA Legend Kenny "The Jet" Smith has run summer basketball camps for over 25 years. With the current pandemic, in-person basketball camps are not happening. So Kenny Smith started the online Jet Academy to fill in that gap and get kids active and getting better at basketball at home, on their own schedule. Along with Kenny Smith and his coaches, Jet Academy has current NBA and WNBA Pro Players and Trainers providing an intensive basketball camp experience including drills, warm-ups, Pro tips, Q&A, video submission reviews, and more. On demand to watch as often as you like.

Other fellow NBA stars who have held recent workouts include Draymond Green, CJ McCollum, Immanuel Quickley and Coby White amongst others.

This is turning out to be quite an eventful week for Little. 

The second-year player made this announcement on Wednesday; his 21st birthday is Thursday; the Trail Blazers are set to host the Philadelphia 76ers on Thursday (unfortunately, Little’s status is “questionable” with a left knee sprain); and the Blazers will also host the Cleveland Cavaliers on Friday before Little will hold his virtual basketball workout session over the weekend. 

 

This season, Little is averaging 5.0 points and 2.3 rebounds in 11.2 minutes of action per game.
