Catching up with Jerry Reynolds

The Sacramento Kings finished up an incredibly busy week on Friday by introducing newly acquired Aaron Brooks at a press conference on the floor of the team's practice facility.  Brooks and President of Basketball Operations, Geoff Petrie, took center stage, but hiding on the periphery was Jerry Reynolds, Kings Director of Player Personnel and long-time member of the team's television broadcast. Reynolds has been a fan favorite since the team moved here in 1985.  He has worn just about every hat imaginable for a franchise that has had more than its fair share of ups and downs.  Last weekend I had a chance to just sit and watch the first period of the Kings summer league game against the Lakers, but that conversation was just two guys catching a game.  On Friday, however, I was able to get something a little more formal for your listening pleasure. Excerpt Reynolds on if you can really learn about a player in a short summer league stint:
"I think you can, but I think maybe it's a little bit different.  I think what you can learn, is who can't do it.  To me...for the most part you don't want to make too much of it, because guys, whether they're averaging 12 points a game or 15 points a game or whatever, that's all just jibber-jabber at some point.  But some players that you see, clearly it's just not going to work.  You know, in a five game period, you just say - this guy is not a pro and he's not gonna be." -Jerry Reynolds

Jimmer Fredette comes clean, admits he was trying to fit in

We have been screaming this from the mountain tops since the first day of training camp last season.  Jimmer Fredette is too nice.  He wants to fit in too badly.  He doesn't want to steal the spotlight, he just wants to be one of the guys and by doing so, he has lost the edge that made him great. Following the Kings' final summer league game in Las Vegas, Jimmer finally said what needed to be said, for himself and for everyone involved.
"I think I changed my game too much," Jimmer said on the NBATV telecast.  "I was too passive.  I was trying to fit in a little bit too much.  That's what I was working on this year.  Just getting that confidence back.  Just getting that stroke back and just being aggressive when I'm on the floor.  That's what they (Kings) got me for, to score the basketball and make plays for this team."
I don't know about you, but I feel better now, and no, I'm not joking. ... More
