Ray: Can you name an all-star five for the Kings from your years with the team, as well as an opponents’ all-star five? Gary Gerould: For the Kings, I have to include Mitch Richmond, Chris Webber and Peja Stojaković. I probably have to include DeMarcus Cousins. I know that is frontline-heavy and I have not done justice to guards. I thought about Reggie Theus; I thought about Mike Bibby; I thought about Kevin Martin. In view of the success that the Kings had in that eight season run where Bibby was involved, I would make him probably the fifth guy. So Richmond, Stojaković, Webber, Cousins, Bibby is the five that I would go with.
Reggie Theus says HE’S the reason Michael Jordan is what he is today … and he’s waiting on Bulls fans to finally respect that — telling TMZ Sports, “I’m looking for a check actually.” The former NBA star was leaving LAX when he explained to us that if it weren’t for him, the ’90s Bulls might have never been a thing. “I take a lot of credit for their success,” Reggie says. “Because, if we weren’t so bad, they would have never gotten Michael Jordan.”
Still, Nico grew some and kept getting better until, one afternoon in eighth grade, his dad handed him a cellphone on the way back from practice, and the voice on the other end was Cal State–Northridge coach Reggie Theus, who said he just knew that Nico was going to be his kind of player, and that he wanted to make him a scholarship offer right there, on the phone, without even seeing him in person, because that way Nico would always remember that it was Theus, a former NBA star, who offered first, way before all the big schools. And upon hearing this, Nico freaked out a bit but tried to look supercool, because one of his teammates was in the car and, besides, that’s what you do when you’re a real baller.

Former Sacramento Kings and New Mexico State coach Reggie Theus will be the next coach at Cal State Northridge, multiple sources close to the situation told ESPN.com. Theus replaces Bobby Braswell at the Big West school. Theus has been trying to get back into college coaching the past two years. He was a finalist at his alma mater a year ago but was passed over by Dave Rice for the UNLV job.
