A career in the NBA took Jumaine Jones to the top of the sports world. But along with the highs came the lows, including a lengthy bout with depression after he hung up his sneakers. The former Mitchell-Baker Eagle and University of Georgia star, who has held basketball camps in the area, was in Albany this week sharing his experiences with Albany youths. He spoke to a group of participants in the Albany Recreation & Parks Department's three-on-three basketball program last Friday. 'This is south Georgia,' he said during a telephone interview prior to his appearance.
