It’s still pretty quiet in the land of Kings – I wish I had more news for you, but, alas – I’m shooting blanks. Well, I mean, uh, shit. Things will pick up here in a week or two when the Kings start their Summer League.
In other news, I came across a great piece this morning written by Matt Moore of Hardwood Paroxysm. Moore touches on the pairing of Tyreke Evans and DeMarcus Cousins and what their future means to the rest of the NBA. I highly recommend the read – especially if you’re a fellow NBA player. PREPARE FOR DESTRUCTIONZ MUTHAFUCKAZ.
Over at Cowbell Kingdom, Zach Harper came across a piece from Andy Kamenetzky (of ESPN Los Angeles), touching on the Kings bright future. It’s nice to see the Kings getting some media attention, especially from down south.
Alex Kramers from When Kingdom Come has a solid piece on what potential free agents the Kings should look into picking up. It is a few days old, so, a few teams have been fucked guys have already been signed – but still worth your time. I like the Shelden Williams option…………….what?
Jesus Pookey from EvilCowtownInc has another amazing piece on the Kings and free agency – one that touches on the benefits of the Kings lack of free agent wheeling and dealing. It’s understandable that people sometimes get annoyed with Petrie’s patience (Petrie really should play Poker…) – sometimes almost to a fault, but, his reluctance to overpay a borderline star will rep large rewards for the Kings down the road. I hope it’s a yellow road. Made of brick! AND CANDY!
Blake Ellington of Bleed Black & Purple shares my view on the bad rep that new Kings forward DeMarcus Cousins has been given by media outlets. It’s really a shame that Cousins has been given this label – hopefully more people see he’s not the evil monster some try to pin him as being. Matter of fact, I’m going to go build myself a De-Cuz Build-A-Bear. WHO WANTS ONE!?
The Zillman over at STR comes through again – showing why the Rookie Scale is so beneficial. Well, beneficial to some….sorry Atlanta. At least you held to your guns and didn’t give Joe Johnson a no trade clause in that contract. Well, you did – but not intentionally. BOOM! RIMSHOT!
Last but not least, the best media team in the league showed why their held in such high regard, dropping another great video on KingsFlix – this time having DeMarcus Cousins & Hassan Whiteside answer questions from King fans on Twitter. I’ve dealt with a lot of NBA teams during my tenure blogging and the Kings really go all out to involve their fans, especially in the social media aspect. Andrew Nicholson and company really deserve more praise as do the Kings as a whole. They really go out of their way for us…
