Confirmed: As He Should Be… Tyreke Evans Is The 2010 Rookie Of The Year

As Tom Ziller reported earlier Tuesday, Tyreke Evans will be named the 2010 Rookie of the Year. I didn't want to post anything involving Tom's breaking news until I could verify it myself (not a knock on Tom... just my own paranoia about this stuff) but sources have confirmed the story from Sactown Royalty is true. A press ... More

Rookie of the Year Countdown… Wednesday?

Saw this tweet from John Hollinger late Monday night/early Tuesday morning about Jamal Crawford being announced as the Sixth Man of the Year: So perhaps this means that the Rookie of the Year award will be given out Wednesday. There aren't too many awards left and I doubt they'd give out ROY after MVP is announced. Of ... More

From When Kingdom Come: Scot Pollard Interview

Our good friend, Alex Kramers from Blogcritics got a chance to interview Scot Pollard: In my mind, I knew going into a game that I was there to make the stars look good. I didn't want to see Vlade (Divac) or Chris (Webber) in foul trouble, or worse, (get) injured from taking a charge or diving on the floor. My role was not to ... More

The New Arena Plan Looks Like It’s Totally Going To Happen/Not Happen

Nice article in the Sacramento Bee about the latest development in the Kings trying to get this complicated land-swap deal done to hopefully get a brand new downtown arena like nearly EVERY OTHER BASKETBALL CITY IN THE NBA. "At the end of the day, are we getting a state-of-the-art 21st-century exposition hall, or are we trying ... More

TrueHoop Network Awards Given Out

With Awards Season coming this week (Dwight Howard won DPOY today) and throughout, the TrueHoop Network thought it would be a fun idea to vote on the same awards and see how the network gauged the 2009-2010 regular season. You can see the winners here on TrueHoop. Big ups to Dan Feldman of Pistons Powered for getting this ... More

From Ken Berger: 2010-11 Salary Cap Will Be $56.1 Million

This gives the Kings roughly $20 million to spend on free agency or in contractually lop-sided trades this summer as opposed to the original $17 million that was expected. So the Kings can either go out and get more players with this or throw us all a really huge block party. I'm available after June. More

Unsung Player Day: Donté Greene

April 14th has been dubbed “Unsung Player Day” across the internet thanks to our friend Don from the With Malice blog. It’s pretty self-explanatory too. There’s a lot of coverage given to LeBron James, Dwight Howard, Kevin Durant, Dwyane Wade and others around the league. And it’s deserving too. Those are the stars ... More

Game 82 Recap – Lakers 106, Kings 100

What a strange way to end the season. Not a whole lot to say with the last game of the 2009-2010 campaign for the Sacramento Kings. The Lakers were without their star player and the Kings might as well not have suited up their star player either. It was pretty competitive for most of the game. At a certain point in the third ...
