Sacramento Kings Mascot Slamson is Reunited with Long-Lost Brother
Today, the Stockton Kings announced the newest member of the team – Mascot Dunkson – with an unveiling ceremony at Chase Chevrolet. To celebrate his debut with the Stockton Kings, Dunkson will spend the evening trick-or-treating with local Stockton youth in celebration of Halloween.
“We are excited to introduce Dunkson to fans as he brings his love of basketball and energy to Stockton Arena,” said Stockton Kings Vice President of Business Operations Dustin Toms. “Dunkson has officially been reunited with older brother Slamson and will personify who the Stockton Kings are on and off the court as we begin this inaugural season in the Central Valley.”
Over the summer, Sacramento Kings Mascot Slamson took a DNA test to learn about his ancestry. After weeks of waiting, his ancestry results revealed his family’s ethnic history – hailing from Zimbabwe, Gir Forest in India, South Sudan and Sub-Saharan Africa – from a royal bloodline of entertainers. The results also gave Slamson the surprise of a lifetime – the news of a brother located nearby in the city of Stockton. Recruiting Sacramento Kings Emcee and best friend, Scott “Fresh” Freshour, the two scoured the city, posting flyers and asking for help locating his brother.
Dunkson will make his game debut this Friday, November 2, for Opening Night as the Stockton Kings take on the Oklahoma City Blue. Tickets are still available at StocktonKings.com.
