Proceeds go to promoting Aussie Hoops.

When Sydney Fan Olivia Oliver-Hopkins wrote her impassioned plea titled An open letter to the ownership and management team of the Sydney Kings to the King's front office asking for answers to questions like why haven't the Kings signed a third import, why don't the Kings have a true center, why isn't Tom Garlepp playing anymore and even why did the team sack the Kings mascot, she wanted answers, but she didn't expect Kings GM Jeff Van Groningen to come forward and answer them.

 

After fans across social media responded en masse and voiced their displeasure at Kings management the Kings GM reached out to Aussie Hoopla to address some of the fans concerns
