A winning combo – JFC, Food, Sports & Fun + James Feldeine looks ahead to the Final 4

Thursday night is always a great night to go out and about in Jerusalem and there’s no better place to get an amazing bite to eat than Jerusalem Fried Chicken. Not only are their wings the best in the Holy City, their whole menu is a food lovers delight. Add to that the terrific atmosphere right across from the Mamilla Mall, JFC has indoor and outdoor seating on a beautiful promenade right in the heart of the action.

There’s no better combination than food, friends and sports and that’s exactly what Jerusalem Fried Chicken provided. James Feldeine. Chris Johnson and Malcolm Griffin from the Hapoel Jerusalem Basketball Club came out to meet and greet the fans, sign autographs, take pictures and schmooze with their many admirers. In fact, Jerusalem will be playing in the Israel Basketball League Final Four semifinals against Maccabi Rishon Le’Zion on Monday night at Yad Eliyahu in Tel Aviv with the winner heading to the final next Thursday night.

Feldeine was thrilled to come out and take in a fantastic evening at Jerusalem Fried Chicken, “I’m just trying to show support to the guys out here in Jerusalem since I’m going to be here for a while. I got to show love to the community.”

The all star will be staying with Jerusalem for the next couple of seasons after signing an extension earlier in the campaign. Does Feldeine love Jerusalem? “You can’t tell? I’m probably the first guy of this caliber to re-sign so early. It’s a great city and we’re in the Holy Land. I really feel comfortable here and I met some friends, it’s a good place to be.”

With a huge clash coming up against Rishon Le’Zion, Feldeine knows it’s a whole new ballgame, “We can’t think about what happened recently. They beat us twice in the season so we got to play like it’s a Final because it’s one game and you never know what can happen. They’re coming into the game after beating a good team in Holon. They are playing well as a team and Cameron Long is playing the best basketball I’ve seen. We have a challenge in front of us for sure.”

There’s no question that Rishon has a quality team with some good players but the Reds have plenty to offer as well and guys that can match up, “We got a few too though and we have a deep roster. It’s going to be a good game and I know that for sure. Hopefully we give the fans what they want and we make it to the championship.”
