Training camp update: Day 3.

Here are some tidbits I extracted from coach Paul Westphal's post practice media session following today's Sacramento Kings training camp: Day three is come back to Earth day. After the first two days of camp, fatigue usually sets in so day 3 is devoted to diagramming plays and walking through coverages. When asked about ... More

An Off-Season for Tyreke Evans, a Career for Pete Carril.

The questions surrounding 2010 NBA rookie of the year Tyreke Evans usually center around two things - is he a point guard or a shooting guard, and how good can this kid be if he can develop a jump shot? Well, the Kings have made question number one completely irrelevant. Tyreke Evans is our point guard, no matter what any of ... More

Hassan Whiteside Is RIPPED

I tweeted during Media Day that Hassan Whiteside has put on 25 lbs since the Summer League (according to him) and he certainly looks like it's true. He claims he's been eating everything that he can and lifting like crazy. I believe him too because to see him in person the other day was pretty startling to a lot of people. ... More

Dalembert and Wright Injury Update. ***Video now included.***

The good news is that both Antoine Wright and Samuel Dalembert were at practice today. The bad news, neither was cleared to participate. Coach Westphal on Dalembert:
"We are going to make sure he is really right before returning to practice." ... More

So The Arena Deal Is Dead… Now What?

Remember that complicated land swap that would have put the State Fair in the old Arco Arena, some other stuff at Cal Expo and the brand spanking new arena into a redeveloped rail yard that rivaled some serious Monopoly wheeling and dealing? Well, the Kings apparently couldn’t pass Go and the city of Sacramento didn’t ... More

Thanks, NBA – that's just what we needed.

In a not so shocking turn of events, the NBA, via e-mail to the Sacramento Bee, gave Kings fans a nice kick to the teeth at a time when excitement for a new season is at its highest. The day after training camp opens, the NBA has this to say:
"On the heels of the disappointing – but not surprising – action (or inaction) of the state and Cal Expo board, it is fair to say that the NBA has ceased its activities on the Sacramento arena front," league representative John Moag said in an e-mail to The Bee. "However, we will continue to monitor and respond to the activities and options of others that might reasonably ensure the competitiveness and viability of the Kings' franchise." ... More

NEVER Let DeMarcus Cousins Take The Vocals If You’re Playing Rock Band

I'm already a big DMC fan. He's a very personable and funny person when you get a chance to talk to him. But you can't have the nickname "Boogie" if you're going to sound like this: (Via Kings Flix) You know it's bad when you make Donté Greene leave the area. Donté is best friends with JT, which means he's heard JT ... More

1 practice, 2 injuries to report.

According to the Bee's Jason Jones via twitter: S. Dalembert left adductor strain and A. Wright left quad strain....neither will participate in tonight's practice. The severity of Dalembert's adductor strain(groin), which can vary greatly, will be crucial in determining how much time he will miss. Both Wright and Dalembert, ... More

Whiteside answers the ADD question.

During his first media day blitz, Sacramento Kings rookie Hassan Whiteside was asked and answered a very personal question regarding rumors about his draft day slide. http://www.youtube.com/v/lKlpsjVarFY While I was not the one who asked the question, it was clear to me that Whiteside was caught off-guard. Earlier in the day, ... More
