OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) Sporting his No. 30 Stephen Curry jersey, 11-year-old Bjarki Robertsson kept up the pace. He hopped on his right foot, then his left, joining in a drill as part of the Golden State Warriors’ basketball camp.
Like the 3-point shooting star he so admires, Robertsson certainly connected from long distance. He participated far from the San Francisco Bay Area -- playing along from his father’s workplace, a small warehouse in Iceland’s capital city of Reykjavik.
The hoops-loving preteen had an advantage, too: His country has 24 hours of daylight right now, meaning he can attend camp and practice on his outdoor basket at home even with the seven-hour time difference.
