In 2004 and 2005 [pic], Jack went to an event at Arco Arena called Practice Like the Kings. This year, the Sacramento Kings offered a Kids Clinic for season ticket holders. Four Kings players and two of the assistant coaches held a loose practice session with about 110 kids.
Jason Thompson ran a post position drill, Beno Udrith organized a passing drill, John Salmons did a ball handling drill, Assistant Coach Randy Brown ran a defensive position drill, Quincy Douby organized a shooting drill and Assistant Coach Rex Kalamian did a conditioning drill.
Jack was wearing a Jason Thompson jersey. His first drill was the station with Thompson. I think that Thompson was surprised and pleased that someone was wearing his jersey and made several comments to Jack about the jersey. Out of the more than 100 kids at the event, no one else was wearing a Jason Thompson jersey.
