Green T-Mobile Event

Sonics rookie Jeff Green's busy Friday morning continued when he joined three of his fellow rookies - Memphis' Mike Conley, Atlanta's Al Horford and Houston's Luis Scola - to star in a T-Mobile event at Center Court at the NBA's Jam Session. About 30 lucky fans were divided into four teams, one for each player, and competed to make 10 shots from the elbow and then the wing.

Despite the best efforts of the rookies, I'm afraid there wasn't a lot of NBA talent on display. Green was rooting hard for his team to connect for the first time, and it finally happened at the end of this clip.

Everyone had a lot of fun, and the event really wasn't quite as much about the competition as it was the chance for the fans to meet the players. Afterwards, Green posed for photos.
