Stranger than fiction

About

Jeff often tells people that his life is evidence that truth is stranger than fiction. Need proof?

 Jeff began his career as an acrobatic slam dunk artist in 1996 touring with the #1 half-time act in basketball, the Bud Light Daredevils.  He traveled the world with the Daredevils where he cut his teeth as an entertainer.

 

     He left the Daredevils in 1998 when the Boston Celtics signed him to become the first mascot in the history of the organization.  After two seasons with the Celtics Jeff and his family moved to Dallas when he signed with the Dallas Mavericks to perform as Mavs Man.  In his first season with the Mavericks, Sports Illustrated named him the 2nd best mascot in the NBA behind the Phoenix Gorilla.
