Thompson sighting and Garcia fighting

Jason Thompson smiled as he walked through Arco Arena tonight. He took in the atmosphere and caught a glimpse of what it will be like when he pulls on a Kings jersey and steps in front of Sacramento fans.
"The fans are really passionate," Thompson said during halftime of the Monarchs game against the Seattle Storm.
Indeed, they are. Which is why he laughed when asked if he has already signed a few autographs since the Kings drafted him almost two weeks ago. Apparently, he's had plenty of practice scribbling his name as of late.
Thompson, who is amiable and accommodating to reporters, returned to his courtside seat for the remainder of the game as Francisco Garcia jumped between chairs. Garcia eventually moved a few seats down and next to former Monarchs player La'Tangela Atkinson. Garcia, who is no stranger to Monarchs games, had many fans in the arena cracking up after he stood up and began to ardently protest a call intensely close to referee Tom Mauer.
