More and more NBA players are taking to Instagram Live, as Richaun Holmes did for an impromptu Q & A on Friday afternoon.
Sacramento Kings center Richaun Holmes hosted an Instagram Live meeting with apostle Michael Freeman on Friday afternoon, and was able to field some questions for an impromptu Q & A before the session.
Holmes was early to the meeting and appeared on the Live feed by himself for a good seven or eight minutes before Freeman logged on. In that time, Holmes asked the viewers to send in a few questions and he would answer them while he waited.

The questions came flooding in, and Holmes picked out a select few to answer. One person asked what his favorite dunk of his career was, and what his fondest memory of playing for the 76ers was. But there were a couple of questions that held our interest a bit more than the rest.
The first question was about which opposing player was his favorite to play against. Holmes was relatively quick to answer with Montrezl Harrell.
"“You know that guy is going to give it everything he’s got every time, and I kind of play the same way, so it’s always a fun matchup”"
Another tidbit that perked up the ears of Kings fans was when Holmes was asked what player was most difficult to guard:
"“Man, probably DeMarcus Cousins. He’s tough, tough. He can move, he’s physical, had handles. You know, there wasn’t really too much he couldn’t do, especially on that lower block.”"

There were a couple of other fun factoids that Holmes was able to share. He listed a handful of his closest friends in the league which included Nerlens Noel and Christian Wood, and answered questions about his favorite rappers.
He was also asked if he remembers getting MVP chants in Sacramento:
"“Of course I do. That’s really an unforgettable moment for me. Just the love culminating in that moment, for the Kings fans to show that love to me in that moment. You know, I try to give them everything I’ve got and they gave it right back. So, I always love the Sacramento fans."
We love you back, Richaun.
We were robbed of seeing the second half of a great season that Holmes was putting together before an unfortunate shoulder injury caused him to miss 25 games. Hopefully, Holmes will be at full strength and ready to put on a show once the league returns to action.
