Paul Westphal is a completely likable guy. On January 6, 2011, he won the 300th game of his career, a feat that he was unaware of until after the game. Unfortunately, as the coach of the Sacramento Kings, Westphal has lost more games than he or anyone else would like. There are certainly many reasons for the losses, ...
It feels kind of stupid to write a 2010-2011 preview of Hassan Whiteside
, because nothing about Hassan screams “2010-2011”. It’s like flying from L.A. to Miami – sure, you’ll probably be over Arizona at some point, and you might even enjoy that part of the flight if it’s when they pass out the peanuts, but ...
This from the Kings media release:
SACRAMENTO, CA ---- The Sacramento Kings today announced that an MRI taken on Kings center Samuel Dalembert confirmed the initial diagnosis of a left adductor strain.

I believe him too because to see him in person the other day was pretty startling to a lot of people. ...
Your boy and mine, Alex Kramers of When Kingdom Come (also, follow him on Twitter - @doktakra), was at the NBA rookie photo shoot when the 2010 rookie class donned their new work uniforms and took pictures doing basketball things. He covered it for Full Court Press on Kings.com and wrote up a nice story about what DeMarcus ...
Dime TV captured a video of Hassan Whiteside
juggling three basketballs at the same time (big ups to Aron Phillips for all of the coverage he gave us with the rookie photo shoot; follow him on Twitter):
Seems like this lady is going to be out of a job...
Dan Feldman, TrueHoop Pistons blogger and human highlighter, put together this fantastic chart of all the incoming rookies and their corresponding rebounding numbers.

Looking around the internet, there couldn't be more praise being heaped onto the Sacramento Kings for selecting DeMarcus Cousins at #5 and Hassan Whiteside
