Pass The Pill:
The Sacramento Kings recently hired NBA legend, Chris Mullin, as their adviser to the chairman (whatever that means). Mullen took on three young Kings in a 3-point battle at UC Santa Barbara following practice on Thursday. Here’s the footage. I’d say Mullin can still shoot. The 6-6, Golden State Warriors legend made 815 threes in his career, but hopefully he’s not encouraging DeMarcus Cousins to start going all Andrew Bynum from deep. The post Video: Chris Mullin shows he’s still got it appeared first on Pass The Pill - Kings of Hoops.

DeMarcus Cousins catches a lot of heat for his attitude and demonstrative ways on the basketball court, so I found it fitting to praise him for something awesome he didn’t have to do.
Cousins of course just signed a huge four year $62 million extension. The Kings center will earn $4.9 million this season before his huge deal kicks in during the 2014 season.
At the end of his...
It is so easy to blog on the negative things that athletes do; heck--its more entertaining. DeMarcus Cousins has been one of those guys in the past, but it appears that he may be working on changing the general perception people have of him.
How? By donating a cool million to charity after signing his new contract extension.
When the Kings opened training camp at UC Santa Barbara Head Coach Michael Malone made it known that every starting job was up for grabs.
"I think we all knew coming into training camp there were a lot of spots open starting positions and the guys have brought it." said Malone.
Kings deep at power forward
The battle for power forward may be the most competitive position...
Early in the 2011-12 season as reporters surrounded Kings center DeMarcus Cousins laughter broke out among the players.
Chuck Hayes took offense yelling that the behavior was unacceptable. But as losses piled up over the next two seasons Hayes blended into the background when teammates laughed afterward. Hayes now says he no longer wants to be a part of a culture that accepts losing...
Chris Mullin can still shoot. Following practice Thursday, the Sacramento Kings put on a 3-point contest to the satisfaction of students at UC Santa Barbara, where they are currently holding training camp. Despite going up against DeMarcus Cousins, Jimmer Fridette and rookie Ben McLemore, the Hall of Famer and current Kings advisor put on a show, shooting 14-15 from downtown.
This wasn’t quite Larry Bird at the 1988 NBA All-Star Shootout, but it was still pretty cool.
Chris Mullin needed to hit nine 3-pointers to win a contest with current NBA players at Sacramento Kings training camp. So he did — nine in a row, in fact, followed by three more. In all, the 50-year-old drained 14 of his first 15 shots. Kings center DeMarcus Cousins was impressed, while...
Tweet In early September, the Sacramento Kings hired Hall-of-Fame guard/forward Chris Mullin to be an advisor to their front office. Though I have no idea what that job actually entails, it apparently requires Mullin’s presence at Kings’ training camp. While at camp at UCSB this week, the 50-year-old Mullin decided to put on a little […]
The Sacramento Kings have headed south for the first week of their training camp making the six-hour drive all the way down from the capital of the Golden State to the campus of the University of California Santa Barbara for their first practices and scrimmages under new head coach Mike Malone. As we saw in Thursday's brief glimpse into the Washington Wizards' workouts though...
Hall of Famer Chris Mullin, whose career spanned 16 seasons (mostly with the Golden State Warriors), has turned in his ESPN analyst role for an adviser position in the new front office of the Sacramento Kings. The Kings are currently holding training camp on the University of California Santa Barbara campus (much better than Sacramento), and the team — and Mullin — put on a show...
TIBCO CEO Vivek Ranadive isn’t merely content with his successful 11th-hour rescue operation of the Sacramento Kings. He’s on a mission to prove to the eight NBA owners who approved a relocation of the Kings to Seattle that they really screwed up:

If you don't land a top SG, be very careful with injury risk players like Danny Granger, Monta Ellis, Eric Gordon and Kevin Martin! The middle of the pack is all so close that you have the ability to wait and take a SG later in the draft. Arron Afflalo and Gordon Heyward are consistent performers who give a little bit of everything and someone like MarShon Brooks could really...
Hall of Fame forward Chris Mullin shows that he’s still got it against DeMarcus Cousins, Jimmer Fredette, Ben McLemore and a pair of UCSB students. One thing old guys can always do is shoot, that never goes.-TORun TMC ReunitesBob Costas Steps Up to Chris Mullin
Thanks to the fine folks over at Ball is Life, they decided to create a very helpful infographic to show the many hairstyles of current Cleveland Cavaliers center Andrew Bynum.
Check out the image in the below picture:

It really feels like Bynum has had more hairstyles than games played in his career. While we know that’s not true overall, it’s certainly true over the past couple of years. We will see Bynum this year? Who knows – we certainly will see some different hairstyles.
Thanks to TerezOwens for the picture
Andrew Bynum with normal hair? What the what?
Training camps are tipping off, Supreme Leader (err, Commissioner) Stern is staring wistfully at his countdown clock, my Sixers are trying to become the worst team in basketball history, and every player in the league is “in the best shape of his life.” #MUSCLEWATCH, y’all.
