Announcement: NBA Draft Marathon LiveBlog-O-Rama-Rama

I wasn't around for this last year because I was busy holding my own live blog/instant update post on Talkhoops.net but Matt Moore and the gang at Hardwood Paroxysm held down a marathon Draft live blog last year that lasted 8 hours and 4 minutes.

What To Do With #23?

Don’t worry, everybody; this isn’t another Kevin Martin trade idea article. The #23 I’m thinking of seems to be the forgotten Kings draft pick due to all of the interest surrounding the fourth pick in the draft. The Kings have three of the first 31 picks in this year’s draft and can do a lot in adding talent to their ... More

Sam Amick catches up with Ricky Rubio at the airport.

Bee exclusive: Rubio reacts to Kings workout Pretty interesting stuff by Sam as he catches Rubio at the airport to find out how he felt about his Kings workout. It seems like nothing went all that well (but not all that bad either) and the Kings could be even more confused about whether or not they'd take him if he's ... More

Patrick Mills’ and Toney Douglas’ Post-Workout Media Session (Video)

Mills and Douglas did a tandem interview with the media after their six-guard workout on Sunday. Two quick notes about their comments: - I love that Toney Douglas takes such pride in his defense.

This workout consisted of Tyreke Evans of Memphis (Top 10 projection), Stephen Curry of Davidson (Top ... More

Kings Mail of the Week

Once a week, I'll be posting a reader email that I think is particularly interesting, funny, smart, or nefarious. There will be fake prizes that I'll pretend to give to the winner. Now kissing up to me is not going to get you to win this dubious and much sought-after honor by any means. If you're ripping me or what I do in a ... More

Take Cover! – Kevin Martin Trade Ideas

Last season was the first year in which Kevin Martin was allowed to have the keys to the organization. He was coming off of a 23.7 points per game scoring season (good for sixth in the league) and shot over 40% from three-point land. He had a brand new contract extension of five years and just over $50 million and seemed to be ... More

Donte Greene’s Story Important for the Draft’s Early Entries

Rick Maese of SI.com, which is believed to have a spin-off magazine as well, wrote a really interesting piece on Donte Greene and relating his early entry story to other players in this year's draft. Here's the link to the story. It talks about him looking at a friend in Blake Griffin, the consensus number one pick, and ... More
