I got the opportunity to talk to the point guard of the San Quentin Kings, Jamaal “Do it all” Harrison about team picture day, Jan. 20, and about his predictions on the Super Bowl and what having picture day meant to him. He been on the basketball team and at SQ for over five years and has seen the sports programs before COVID and after.
Timothy Hicks: Wassup Maal? What do you think about the picture day we just had? It’s been a while since the last pictures were taken of the teams.
Jamaal Harrison: It was cool to see everybody smiling and enjoying themselves — especially after COVID.
TH: Yeah, that’s what it’s all about. So, tell me what you think of the future of your team and how can y’all bounce back to a winning season after last season’s deficit?
JH: I injured my shoulder early in the season from balling out but, I’m looking for the Kings to step up this season. We should be stronger because we will have most of our players back. We have good shooters, good defenders, good rebounders and good ball movement. Most of all we got good players with some good basketball I.Q.
TH: Last season it was complaints about your team not having many opportunities to play the outside Green Team. Would you agree?
JH: Absolutely, I would like to play the outside team more. COVID robbed us of a season.
