Woozy Jazz Fan Gets Emotional Over Ingles After Surgery
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – One Utah Jazz fan has fallen victim to oversharing in a viral video after surgery.
In a tweet from Preston Houskeeper, the young Jazz fan rants about his favorite Jazz players after an apparent trip to the oral surgeon.
Wrapped in bandages and icepacks, the fan praised Jordan Clarkson’s style, the backcourt of Donovan Mitchell and Mike Conley, and his emotional connection with Joe Ingles.

“Jordan Clarkson, he’s so good,” the fan protested. “And his fashion — 10 out of 10.”
The Jazz guard is known for his pre and postgame outfits which earned him the nod as the NBA’s best-dressed player by Bleacher Report.
“I wish I could look like that,” Houskeeper says. “He’s just awesome, and his cornrows are so sick.”
When the driver of the vehicle questioned where the recovering patient would look good in cornrows, he offered a quick solution.
“Fine, I’ll do it in an afro then. His afro looks cool, too.”

After praising Clarkson, the bandaged Jazz fan moved onto the team’s All-Star backcourt.
“Also I really enjoy Donovan Mitchell and Mike Conley, I love all of them.”
However, his highest admiration came for the veteran Ingles who was involved in trade rumors over the summer while playing for the Australian National Team.
“I’m so glad we got to keep Joe Ingles,” Houskeeper said. “If he would have left I think I would have started crying. I love Joe Ingles.”
When the driver told the fan she’s surprised he isn’t crying right now, the patient made his most stark admission.
“I am crying.”
Luckily, with Clarkson, Mitchell, Conley, and Ingles signed through the remainder of the season, this ailing Jazz fan can shed tears of happiness rather than sad ones whether he’s coming out of surgery or not.
