With UC Santa Barbara hosting Kings training camp, Sacramento owner Vivek Ranadive looked to get a few local students involved. Two lucky hoopers -- who reportedly were hanging around the facility, just hoping to catch sight of the Kings in ingress or egress -- were invited to compete against Jimmer Fredette, DeMarcus Cousins and Ben McLemore in a three-point-shooting contest. If they somehow got the best of the Kings' reps, those students would be Ranadive's personal guests at the Kings game of their choosing, regardless of locale.

But Ranadive sneaked in a ringer for the contest: 50-year-old Hall of Fame shooter Chris Mullin, a Kings front-office official who was introduced as a "16th-year senior" majoring in "surfboard aerodynamics." Despite retiring from the NBA more than a decade ago, Mullin's shot looked as silky as ever. He crushed the competition by making his first 12 attempts and 14-of-15 overall (Jimmer made 10-of-15, the best of the three Sacramento players). Mully's still got it.
