As Allen Jones continued his life in Europe, many things started changing for the better. His basketball career flourished; he continued playing professionally until he was thirty-eight years old and earned so much respect that he was given the opportunity to coach Luxembourg's men's and women's national basketball teams. However, his greatest accomplishments took place outside the worlds of sports and the media. It happened in the banking industry. He worked in banking for twenty-seven years, with the last seventeen spent at Dexia International Bank Luxembourg. Not long after his return to New York, however, Jones's life took yet another interesting turn. He later married and eventually had two children, Christopher Jones and Nazilta Jones. This book is dedicated to his children.
