NSW—Three-time NBL basketball champions Sydney Kings conducted a “Super Camp” on 17 January at Bankstown Basketball Stadium.
The whole Sydney Kings roster delivered a boot camp style clinic that taught kids basic foundations and techniques to improve their overall game.
Over 250 aspiring basketball players aged between 6-16 attended the free basketball clinic.
Needless to say, it was a roaring success.
In the midst of all were three star-struck cousins.
Brothers Ethan, 10 and Julian Selorio, 8, from Hornsby and their cousin Jaylen Montano, 8, from Prestons were having the time of their lives. Not only did they get a souvenir t-shirt and a free three-hour basketball session, they got to learn from and rub shoulders with their favourite basketball stars.
“I love Jerome Randle and Jason Cadee because I can shoot three-pointers like them,” said a starry-eyed Jaylen.
“Andrew Gaze signed my cap, and I got high five from Kevin Lisch,” said young Julian.
Ethan added, “I love the Kings. They almost won last week. I want to be a King one day and help them win a championship.”
The Kings continue to serve the greater basketball community despite their terrible season, currently placed at the bottom of the NBL ladder.
One thing is for sure the three young cousins will continue to show their loyalty and appreciation to their team. Win, lose or draw.
