Seth Jones is from the United States...

He is incredibly well-spoken for an athlete, regardless of race... (He's probably smarter, too, than 90 percent of athletes)...

His dad was a pro basketball player, so there's the intersport connection....

Him coming back to his hometown is a huge marketing selling point, and gives him an opportunity to connect with his fanbase...

He will be a franchise player, and this situation is just like Lebron in Cleveland, except I'd say he'd have a much better chance at sticking around, rather than jumping ship the way Lebron did (and why I think pro basketball is a joke).
