After a rocky start, the Kings seemed to find their footing after the All-Star break and had climbed to within 3.5 games of the eighth seed when the NBA paused its season on March 11 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Veteran Sacramento guard Cory Joseph was encouraged by the progress, and believes his team was ready to get over the hump and into the post-season. “We were rolling,” Joseph said in a recent interview with Sportsnet’s Brad Fay on Basketball Central @Home. “We were playing well, we were playing together, we were coming into our own. We were a young team figuring things out before the All-Star break and then we started rolling. We definitely felt like we could have competed with anybody.”
The Games have been postponed until 2021, forcing Canada to wait a little longer for its chance to qualify. “We were anxious to play together to try and make it to the Olympics,” Joseph said. “We felt like we had a good shot with everybody playing but it doesn’t change the course, we’re all going to stick together and hopefully we’ll all be there next year.”

Sacramento Kings guard Cory Joseph and his family are funding thousands of food donations to help feed school children in need as a result of the COVID-19 crisis across his home country of Canada. Joseph is facilitating the donations through Isthmus, one of the only programs in Canada to provide students with reliable access to food that bridges the food security gap they experience over the weekends. “With the platform I have, I feel it is my responsibility to help those in need, especially the children back home that are most vulnerable to the conditions of poverty,” said Joseph. “Growing up in the Toronto area I saw those realities, so I hold a special place in my heart for this next generation. I am very humbled to support these kids with greater food security through Isthmus during this pandemic so they can live healthy lives and go on to achieve their dreams.”

Joseph is contributing to two causes, one of which is helping to provide meals for victims of domestic violence, along with their children, and sex trafficking. He is donating 250 meals from the Arden Fair Chick-fil-A in partnership with the nonprofit WEAVE. “After talking to Harrison Barnes, he was telling me what he was trying to do to help, so we were brainstorming, and it just felt like the right thing to do and join my teammates — Bogi (Bogdan Bogdanovic), De’Aaron (Fox), Harrison and Richaun (Holmes) — in trying to donate the meals,” Joseph told The Athletic. “And joining Chick-fil-A to donate to families that have been victimized by domestic violence and sex trafficking of children as well to help out in communities where it’s much needed. To partner with WEAVE and do that is just amazing.”
