The players of the Sacramento Kings are a tight-knit group that love to be with each other.
The Sacramento Kings are on the rise. After starting their first five games of the season winless, they have managed to be the victors in six of their last eight games, putting them just one spot shy of the #8 seed in the Western Conference.
The Kings are playing good basketball together, which is helping them reach their season goal of contending in the playoffs. But for this team to take the next level in their rebuild, they need their young talent to blossom. On the court, the youngsters still need to get better, but their chemistry off the court seems to be great.
When the Kings defeated the Boston Celtics last Sunday, shooting guard Buddy Hield kicked the basketball in celebration when the clock hit triple zeros. As a result, the NBA fined Buddy $25,000 for the postgame celebration, leading to his teammates to poke some jokes at him.
Thanks to @soren_flyin on Twitter, Kings fans can see how Buddy’s teammates reacted to his fine.
The Kings are playing well right now, but it is without the services of De’Aaron Fox and Marvin Bagley III. Hopefully, when the two rising stars are healthy, they can have little to no trouble when inserted back into the rotation.
For the Kings’ rebuild to become a complete success, which is eventually becoming a legit NBA contender, they need most of their young talents to reach their potential. Not only does each player need to keep improving, but as a group, they need to gel with one another on the court.
Based on their relationships off the court, the Kings are a pretty tight-knit group that love to be with each other. There is no doubt that the group is talented, so if they can continue growing together BOTH off and on the court, the purple and white will be a scary team in the upcoming future.
