From Dominique Hawkins at CoachCal.com: “Hey, how are you, Big Blue Nation? How's it going?
I have to talk first about what I saw at Tent City last week. I didn't expect that many people to camp out for free tickets. I got to meet the biggest fans in the nation. We love them to death just because they do that for us. It's crazy because when you talk to them, they want to talk about nothing but basketball. Since I was a little kid, I knew about it, but I didn't know how insane it was even though I grew up in Kentucky.
My favorite fan was the little girl I posted a picture of on Instagram. I met her and she just kept on hugging me and grabbing my neck and didn't want to let go. I thought that was pretty sweet of her.”
