Petition to wear the city jerseys every game! The Kings finally held an opponent under 120 Wednesday. This time, they kept their opposition in double digits, and they earned their first win in five games, beating the New York Knicks 104-93.
It’s a mutual admiration society in the Sacramento backcourt. It’s only been one month, but Tyrese Haliburton has already proven to be one of the steals of the NBA Draft and a top contender for Rookie of the Year.
And more links from around the Kingdom. The Sacramento Kings found a diamond in the rough during the summer of 2019. Then-general manager Vlade Divac signed four-year pro Richaun Holmes to a two-year deal worth $10 million.
There’s a definite big/little brother dynamic developing between the two. When Tyrese Haliburton was drafted by the Kings, he made it clear that Sacramento was the best place for him primarily because of De’Aaron Fox.
Sacramento Kings center Hassan Whiteside has been diagnosed with a left hip flexor strain after undergoing an MRI, the team announced Wednesday. Whiteside will be listed as day-to-day moving forward...
And more links from around the Kingdom. Hassan Whiteside is a bit of a Snapchat celebrity, if such a thing exists. From his infamous “ready are not” Snapchat story to his “new congrat” story, Whiteside has provided plenty of laughs for NBA fans whether he’s meant to or not, and he did it once again on Tuesday.
Another thing we can blame the Lakers for. Tyrese Haliburton has been an absolute delight so far this season, and his teammates have gone out of their way to say how much they enjoy playing with him and how happy they are to have him on their side.
The Kings had a few bright spots on Sunday, but their defense wasn’t one of them. In the three years that De’Aaron Fox and Marvin Bagley III have been teammates, there haven’t been many nights where both of them have had it going offensively.
If the Kings jettisoned every player who was slightly depressed about the franchise, they wouldn’t be able to field a team. There’s no choice but to muddle on, with or without your discontented star shooting guard.
