From SI.com: Robson Praises But Questions the Kings

Here's a little snippet from Britt Robson's check around the NBA in which he feels teams like the Kings and Suns are going to come back down to Earth: I'm also not waiting for the NBA to announce its Western Conference Coach of the Month for November -- I'll take Sacramento's Paul Westphal. After losing top scorer Kevin ... More

Welcome, D-League Digest

As you probably know, the TrueHoop Network filled out its team roster this summer by acquiring the full 30 team blogs it set out to get. But that doesn't mean it isn't always expanding and looking for new angles on the league. We cover the NBA and more NBA and more NBA... but we also cover the European game and now the ... More

Let’s Not Decide the Rookie of the Year Race Just Yet…

It’s easy to get caught up in hype. Really easy. The majority of us were caught up in the Ricky Rubio hype. Many people are caught up in Anthony Randolph hype until they actually watch him have to make a basketball decision. And we all cashed in our chips with LeBron James before he actually even did anything on an NBA ... More

Game 16 Recap: Kings 112, Hornets 96

It was clear the New Orleans Hornets weren’t going to let Tyreke Evans beat them. In the first matchup between these two teams, Evans carried the Kings on a night in which Kevin Martin couldn’t find his shot. Evans took Chris Paul mano-y-mano and played him to a virtual standstill. He got to the paint when he needed to and ... More

Game 15 Recap: Kings 109, Nets 96

My favorite line from Super Troopers is “Desperation is a stinky cologne.” And we saw Lawrence Frank’s desperation tonight when with 2:29 left in the fourth quarter and the Nets needing to surmount a seven-point lead to avoid starting the season 0-16, the Nets resorted to the “Hack-a-Two-Guard” as Spencer Hawes ...

From Nets Are Scorching: Kings-Nets Preview

Sebastian Pruiti is one of the driving forces behind Nets Are Scorching, the Brooklyn New Jersey Nets blog for the TrueHoop Network. And he does a really good job of covering this Nets team. Well, he posted a great preview/breakdown of the matchup tonight between the winless Nets (0-15) and the Kings. I definitely recommend ... More

Experiment: Tyreke Evans Highlights

Tried a little something different here. Here's a little highlight video I put together from Evans' game against the Jazz on November 7th. As most of you remember, it was his first game without Kevin Martin and he scored 32 points and dished out 7 assists. Enjoy and leave your criticisms in the comments if you don't mind. More

Game 14 Recap: Kings 111, Knicks 97

We learned on the last road trip that this is still a very young team that will shoot itself in the collective foot over and over as they learn how to be a real NBA team. And that’s not meant as a dig at all. They’ll be competitive most games and they’ll most likely kill themselves most nights with turnovers. But an ... More
