Jason Thompson throws out the first pitch at the Camden Riversharks game on Saturday, where he raised over $3,500 for the L.I.V.E Like JT campaign. Here is Part II of my Q&A with JT, in which he talks about his offseason; future plans; expectations of DMC, 'Reke and Jimmer; and thoughts on the Salmons and Hickson acquisitions.

Q&A with Jason Thompson (Part I)

The first part of my interview with JT, in which he discusses his foundation and the L.I.V.E. Like JT campaign; his Kings-themed fundraiser in Camden, NJ on Saturday; and his NBA mentors. Part II coming next week with a full recap and pictures from the event, plus JT on his offseason (he hasn't played much basketball due to his broken toe); thoughts on the Kings' trades and draft picks; and his personal and team goals (Playoffs!).

More Thorpe Love for Shock

A lot has been made of my frustrations on the court lately. I think if I’m not frustrated when I’m in foul trouble, then I don’t know how I should act. People tell me to play through it, but if I’m in foul trouble, I’m not playing. So that myth goes out the window. Also people have told me that it’s normal because I’m a rookie, but I try to have an aggressive mentality because I don’t want to play like a rookie. Obviously I want to be great, so I’m going to go through these rocky roads in my career. I’m trying to adapt and learn how to play defense differently, which might mean I can’t be as aggressive as I want. But I still want to put my stamp on the game. When I play, I’m not going to let guys push me around. I’m willing to take a foul for the team. I may get upset when I’m not playing due to foul trouble, but I have faith in my team to maintain the energy I bring even when I’m off the court.

Top 25 Under 25 - February Edition

I tried to get Shock onto the list, but I'm just one in a panel of three. No one else wanted to recognize his value. Which begs the question, who would you rather have right now, Shock or Andrea Bargnani? I'd rather have Shock, personally.

Hawes rated as the 25th best player under age 25

Some love for Spencer Hawes. Spencer is playing good basketball at the 4/5 spot this season and he was rewarded by being named the 25th best player under 25. Personally, I think he deserves to be ahead of Andrew Bogut, because Bogut's injured a lot. But hey, 25th is a good starting spot. Jason Thompson didn't even make "on the cusp" status. Oh well. He's got a few years of eligibilty left until he turns 25.

But to watch Rose's unselfishness slowly rub off on such a messed-up, immature, overpaid, poorly coached, terribly put-together Bulls team has been one of the most random shockers of this season, right up there with Vince Carter looking like Vintage VC again; Jason Thompson being a great pick; Jason Kidd morphing into a Nash-like defensive liability; Marc Gasol being semi-competent; the poor Hawks fans getting suckered in by one of Flip Murray's infamous November hot streaks; the fact that Alexis Ajinca could ever get drafted in the top 20 of an NBA draft; and Tim Thomas being involved in a trade that was delayed because someone else had a heart problem. and... Top 5 Fantasy Pickups 5. Spencer Hawes -- Stash him and wait for the inevitable Brad Miller injury.
