Extractions: 2002 Summer Basketball Camp For the third consecutive summer, Group 7 organized a Summer Basketball Camp in the Sacramento area. Building upon previous years success, this year's camp was comprised of two, one-week long sessions, with more than 620 campers enrolled in both sessions. The staff of 35 coaches ran the camp from 8am to 5pm, with morning sessions of basic basketball skills and afternoon sessions of non-dribbling and regular basketball games. Between sessions, the children had a chance to interact with Vlade Divac, as well as participate in fun "drillmania" contests. In addition to further honing their basketball skills, each participant also received two t-shirts, a pair of shorts, a basketball, awards and several other gifts all provided by our generous sponsors. Campers also had an opportunity to meet fellow Kings Pedja Stojakovic, Bobby Jackson, Chris Webber and Supersonic, Jerome James as they made special appearances during the camp. Overall, the camp has educated approximately 1,500 children during its brief three year history and continues to grow each year. In addition to teaching kids the fundamentals of basketball, the summer basketball camp has proved to be an incredible source of funds for the foundation. As with all of our events, all proceeds will go towards the implementation of several upcoming programs to benefit the children of Yugoslavia.

Extractions: March 29, 2001 Kukoc Opening Statement: Actually, I am very happy to go back to Treviso. I dont know if it is known that I spent two years of my professional career playing there for Benetton and its a great organization with great people. I really think they are, with the NBA, doing a great thing making this camp. So, hopefully we will all go and have fun. Q: What kind of example from past experiences can you use to connect with the kids? Kukoc: As you know, I grew up in Split in Croatia, which was a part of the ex-Yugoslavia before the war started. So, its going to be pretty easy for me to connect with the kids. Obviously, they are going to have plenty of questions about European and the NBA experience, so Ill be more than glad to talk about that and talk about basketball in general. And, I think the basketball is a great way to actually be involved in a sport, get the friends outside of the streets, which is a risk to get involved in drugs and these, lets call them not-good things. Q: Is three days enough to really have the time to create a special environment?

Whenever Vlade Divac decides to officially retire from the NBA, the 7-1 Serbian native will be remembered for more than being this era's best passing big man or the former Laker, Hornet and King who played 16 or so seasons in the NBA and scored more than 13,000 points and pulled down nearly 10,000 rebounds. Or the man who had the unenviable task of succeeding six-time NBA MVP Kareem Abdul-Jabbar at center and in only his second NBA season played a key role along with Magic Johnson in helping the Los Angeles Lakers reach the 1991 NBA Finals. No, whenever Divac decides to retire, the statistics simply won't do him justice. His impact off the court looms much larger than the 11.8 and 8.2 scoring and rebound averages.
