Looks like lockout basketball in Sacramento coming closer to becoming a reality. Kings forward Donté Greene appeared on the Carmichael Dave Show and said the Goon Squad Classic
is rounding into form.
He's received commitments from Washington Wizards point guard John Wall and Houston Rockets point guard ...
Four home games at Power Balance Pavilion were lost after the NBA cancelled the first two weeks of the regular season yesterday. But Kings fans might have basketball to cheer for if Donté Greene has his way.
Earlier today, Kings fans tweeted at the Sacramento Kings forward about putting together a charity exhibition game in the Capital region. He took their message to heart and it appears Greene has plans in the works to host a game the weekend before Thanksgiving.
Among the players who’ve declared their interest? Wizards point guard John Wall along with Greene's fellow teammates Jason Thompson and DeMarcus Cousins. New King J.J. Hickson also says he'd like to play. Clippers center DeAndre Jordan, Rockets point guard Jonny Flynn, Lakers forward and Sacramento native Matt Barnes, teammates Tyreke Evans and Hassan Whiteside were also extended Twitter invites by the Kings forward.
Sacramento has proven before that a simple tweet can spark a major idea
. So the possibility of a barnstorming exhibition featuring your favorite Sacramento Kings isn't out of the question. But with PBP off-limits due to the lockout, where would they play?
