HoopsHype Sacramento Kings twitter
Was interesting to me to hear how Vivek handled the national narrative that there is chaos in front office and maybe even more so...1/2
Remember when Ty Corbin was head coach of the Kings Summer League team and they hadn't even officially announced him as hired?
For what it's worth, in Vivek's opening statement illustrating his 5 points - that was longest I've ever heard him speak at one time
Collison has two fouls and Sessions will replace him. Cue fan anger now.
Kendrick Perkins checks in to boos ... still not sure why everyone is mad at Perk
KIngs down 9-0 .... they cue up some Peja video.
The Sacramento Kings are already hearing it two minutes in. Trail 9-0. 3 turnovers.
If you recall, Mark Jackson and Michael Malone didn't have the greatest relationship when the two were in Golden State.
Well that's interesting...Mark Jackson says on ESPN broadcast he spoke to Michael Malone about his time in Sacramento.
Starters: Kings - Gay, Thompson, Evans, McLemore, Collison; OKC - Durant, Ibaka, Adams, Roberson, Westbrook
Chris Mullin just walked by being chased by a local tv reporter. "No comment."
Just had a brief 1-on-1 with Sacramento Kings majority owner Vivek Ranadive. Interesting comments to come re: firing of Michael Malone
Brad Miller, Vlade Divac, Scot Pollard, Bobby Jackson and Doug Christie are all here for Peja Stojakovic's jersey retirement ceremony.
Reggie Evans is starting tonight instead of Ryan Hollins.
Mark Jackson just walked by. He's calling the game tonight for ESPN.
This is what the Sacramento Kings game should about tonight. http://t.co/yvCfxouIAn
Both DeMarcus Cousins and Omri Casspi are officially out tonight for Sacramento.
As a Duke fan, I'm crushed not to see Jabari Parker play in Sac on Thursday. CRUSHED!!!!
Don Nelson believes Mullin could be a good head coach and also said George Karl would be a great fit.
Eric Moreland has been recalled from the Reno Bighorns...again.
So do you believe Kenny Anderson
It'll be Tyrone Corbin for now ...
Problem with the Peja video...we'll have that fixed...
Had a great chat with Peja Stojakovic about his jersey retirement Tue. Vlade, Doug Christie, B-Jax, Scot Pollard all expected to attend.
Several coaches have told me they do not believe a running style fits what Cousins does best. This will be interesting.
Take away DeMarcus Cousins, the Kings just aren't good. That's what a 2-7 record shows. They're not much better, it at all than Detroit now
Yes, the Pistons have a bad record, but Drummond, Monroe, Jennings and Meeks would all get run with the Kings.
So there's that.
During this stretch w/o Cousins, Kings have played San Antonio, Memphis, Houston and Toronto, games they might have lost w/ Cousins.
Most coaches describe the Kings as a "physical" team, which suits Cousins and Gay best. How will this fast thing work out?
DeMarcus Cousins (viral meningitis) is out for tomorrow's game vs. OKC, Omri Casspi (left knee bone contusion) is doubtful.
If there was doubt about DeMarcus Cousins availability for Tuesday vs. OKC, especially after increased practice time today, well he's out
“I would be lying if I said I didn’t feel like it was partially my fault.” -DeMarcus Cousins on Malone and missing 9 games with illness.
DeMarcus Cousins (virus) is out for tomorrow’s game against OKC. Omri Casspi (left knee) is doubtful.
Gonna play this new D'Angelo while I crank out these stories ... oh yeah, Peja's in town tomorrow! Vlade too!!!
More Pete "I didn’t really care about what our record was. It’s about who we want to be, what we want our identity to be as a team."
Pete on could a no. of wins have saved Malone's job: "No I think it was more style of play. I wouldn't put any of that on certain set amt"
Chris Webber cannot make it to Peja's jersey retirement tomorrow night due to TV analyst conflict with NBA-TV.
Peja Stojakovic's jersey retirement tomorrow. Former teammates on hand include: Vlade Divac, Doug Christie, Brad Miller, B-Jax, Scot Pollard
Pete said he hopes he has a relationship with Malone for years to come and that he respects him.
Pete on Malone: "I think he’s talented. There’s just a different view of what we want to put in front of the fans."
Pete: "We want to get in that arena and we want to be a compelling product. To get to that point, what philosophy are we going to have?"
Pete D on decision: "What is the next phase, what is going to take us to the next level … is this the coach to take us to that phase?"
Corbin was asked if he had philosophical differences with management: "I don't know. We'll see."
Corbin: "Our goal is to make the playoffs."
DeMarcus Cousins said he found out Michael Malone had been fired on Twitter.
Cousins: I would I be lying if I said I didn’t feel like it was partially my fault. In reality it isn’t, but me personally I feel like it is
Corbin on faster pace w/ Cousins: "At times he’s getting down the floor quickly at times he’s not so how do we function in those times?"
