NBA Jam Session

With no media events scheduled for Sunday, I used the afternoon to see more of New Orleans (at least by day) and make sure I gave the beignets a try at Cafe Du Monde.

I did make a quick stop at the NBA Jam Session and realized I haven't blogged yet about that experience. The jam Session is fan central during All-Star Weekend and a dream spot for fans, especially younger ones. They have the opportunity to get autographs, participate in various clinics, test their skills, play video games, trade cards and so much more.

Here's what it looks like at the T-Mobile booth, giving a sense of the crowd.

Jam Session is getting a boost from some of my Sonics co-workers. Todd Albright, Gabriella Buono and John Leach from our Events & Entertainment department have been working the Jam Session throughout All-Star Weekend, playing a key role in the events taking place at Center Court, including the All-Star and Rookie/Sophomore practices and yesterday's D-League All-Star Game.
