Kings are moving to Virginia Beach? Mwahahahahahahaha.

Read the title. That’s what I think. I don’t mean disrespect to Virginia Beach, but here’s the bottom line: Virginia Beach has a metro area of 1.6 million people, and none of those include any in Washington DC. It’s actually bigger than Richmond VA for instance. (Allen Iverson is from nearby Hampton VA in case […]

The Kings have sent out a press release with a Geoff Petrie quote:   “Keith’s extension gives us the stability we need to continue the development of our team,” Petrie said. “He has the commitment, energy and vision necessary to succeed in building a winning team.

Jason Thompson gets it, and getting it is why JT got a 5 year deal

Read the title. I literally mean what I wrote there and wrote it that way intentionally: Jason Thompson gets why he got a 5 year contract. Check out these quotes from JT from Saturday’s Bee: “Some guys are going to have to play different roles,” said Thompson, the Kings’ first-round draft pick in 2008. “Some […]

Kings schedule is released; will start season in Chicago on 3 game road trip

Well, here we are again. Another season. Another opportunity for pissing and moaning about the Kings opening up on the road even though their brutal stretch is from January to March with 19 out of 31 road games. Here is the official Kings media release in case you’re interested There are 4 “National TV” appearances […]

Looking at the Kings salary in the next few seasons

Now that we have an idea of what the roster looks like, I thought it might be useful to take a gander at the future salary and how it may impact not just Tyreke Evans, but future moves beyond Evans and DeMarcus Cousins. All salary data and notes below are from ShamSports. Sacramento Kings Player […]

Kings acquire James Johnson for future 2nd round pick

According to Marc Stein, the Kings have acquired James Johnson of the Toronto Raptors for a future 2nd round pick. July 16, 2012   Jason Jones has confirmed as well. This is what James Johnson is: A physical defender who doesn’t shoot the three well. The adjusted +/- for 1 and 2 years is pretty […]

My pretty little unicorn

There is a general consensus of players that I have heard.Some that people want, others not. Despite whatever people think, here are 6 players that some fans want. I do not want all of these guys, but they vary in quality and reputation. The whole idea of this is to figure out which guys you […]

Not signing Ryan Anderson has as much to do with Thomas Robinson’s value

Right now, just about anywhere in the Kings fan universe, their is cursing about the Kings not signing Ryan Anderson. (And probably Nicolas Batum too, but that was pretty unrealistic given the circumstances.)  I understand that, but I don’t agree with it. I knowthat I wrote about this a couple days ago, but I feel […]

Draft Day Thoughts

This will be brief. As of this writing (which means nothing), the Kings have 2 picks: #5 and #36 overall. At #5, the usual names bandied about for the last several months might be in play when the Kings select at #5: Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Thomas Robinson, and Harrison Barnes remain the 3 most likely guys […]

Kings Potpourri

Because I’ve not commented on the many Kings newsworthy items (for lots of reasons), I’m going to recap what I think here in some paragraphs. That’s all about the thoughts I have these days anyway. The Memphis Grizzlies sell for 350 million dollars How does this effect the Maloofs decision to sell? In of itself, […]

NBA Draft Blog Drafting profile for the Kings

While most people choose (and understandably so) to use the quality resources that both Chad Ford and Jonathan Givony offer at ESPN.com and DraftExpress respectively, it’s also true they are not alone. If you have not read Ed Isaacson’s rather awesome (and not because it’s part of the Bloguin network) NBA Draft Blog, you should. […]
