HE may be an NBA young gun on the other side of the world — but Dante Exum has shown his Aussie roots through his shoes.
The Utah Jazz point guard is in New Orleans for All-Star Weekend representing the World in the Rising Stars Challenge, a clash between the best young players from around the globe.
But the 21-year-old, who grew up in Melbourne, is also a big Essendon fan. So given that his uniform for the game was mostly red and black he decided to show his support.
Exum — or perhaps a friend, we don’t want to assume his artistic talent — decorated his shoes with a fighter jet and the phrase “Carn the Bombers”.

We’re imagining it’s the first time NBA All-Star Weekend has seen anyone say “carn” anything.
Fittingly, Exum is back in action this season after missing all of the previous one, although his absence was due to injury.
Before being drafted in 2014, Exum told Essendon’s club website that he was a lifelong fan.
“I have always been an Essendon supporter and when my brother was born in 1993 they won a premiership so since I was born in 1995 I have always been an Essendon supporter,” Exum said.
