Part two of our conversation with former King Doug Christie. Highlights

This is the first of what we hope to be many podcasts here at Cowbell Kingdom. And we couldn't have had a better guest for our inaugural show than former Kings great Doug Christie. Highlights
- Christie was in town this past week for #HereWeRally. James Ham and I asked if Kings fans can expect to see more of him in Sacramento this upcoming year.
- Does a stable family-life make for a better team atmosphere? We get his thoughts.
- "Consistency of competing" - one of the aspects Christie says DeMarcus Cousins and Tyreke Evans need more of moving forward with their careers.
