“I think that’s awesome,” Kidd said after today’s practice. “Whoever that lucky fan is. . .what do we have to do to win it?”
When told that all anyone has to do is pay $10 for a raffle ticket, Kidd sounded like he wanted to purchase a ticket or two.
“That’s it?,” Kidd asked. “OK. I’m in.
“But I think it’s a great gesture and that just shows what kind of character Jet is.”
Terry said all proceeds from the raffle will go to his foundation and will be used to help his youth girls’ basketball team – the Lady Jets – travel later this year to China.
“Everybody can get in,” Terry said. “Some lucky person is going to win it.
“I’ll let it run for a month and see what happens.”
Asked if media members can purchase a raffle ticket, Terry said: “You [media] guys have been along for the journey, so it would be incredible [if a media member won the raffle].”
