Top50 Players That Really Shouldn't Shoot That Much

Courtesy your brethren at Mavs Moneyball, there are 3 Kings on the list. Can you guess who?

Report: Memphis Grizzlies Trading for Marreese Speights

That was a quick, smart move, keeping them among the West's elite. I believe some here were interested in Speights in the past.

The Knicks could use a good geek

So could the Kings. Henry Abbot makes a case for analytics in sports, and, Corey Brewer as a player.

Andre Miller on the block?

Apparently, Brandon Roy think he and Miller don't fit well. Perhaps Beno would fit a little better? Or maybe a veteran defensive center who isn't prone to injury?

Removing limitations from the equations leads us to a new kind of basketball nirvana, where Andrea Bargnani is not a problem because he's not a 5, and Tyreke Evans is simply regarded as being of the "awesome position."

NBA Playbook: Point Guards in the Post

This article from Pruiti at NBA Playbook talks about the benefits of a point guard who can post up opposing guards.

Looking forward to the FIBA tournament, here are some highlights of the point guard from the U.S....

Looking forward to the FIBA tournament, here are some highlights of the point guard from the U.S. team's main competition: Spain. Perhaps we will see some no-look passes in Minneapolis in 2011 as well.

Players who have gotten under the Lakers' skin.

"Doug Christie epitomized the upstart Sacramento Kings at the beginning of the decade with his feisty play and outspoken nature. His numerous verbal and physical altercations with the Lakers set the tone for one the league’s great, albeit short-lived rivalries." I don't remember Christie as being especially outspoken. I do remember Rick Fox's greasy hair, though.

Latest buzz: RJ, Shaq, T-Mac, more

Some vets that could be useful to the Kings are T-Mac, Stackhouse, Finley. Would they want to come here? Would we want them?

Charting the New Rookie's Rebounding #s

A useful, Ziller-ish chart that I found at Cowbell Kingdom, but was originally from PistonPowered. Cousins looks beastly, as you expected.

DraftExpress Breaks Down 2010 Rookie Centers Stats

Excellent breakdown of Cousins vs. the rest of the top NCAA and International prospects at center from the 2009-10 season.

James Anderson - The best as far as 2 guards go?

Check out the series of article on DraftExpress on situational statistics by position here:

Paul George - Is this the guy Jerry was talking about?

Check out what DraftExpress thinks. Sounds like an unbelievable talent, he is coming out of nowhere, which Petrie will love, he is versatile, but fills a need, and their have been some questions about his character and ethic, which is what Jerry mentioned on the radio.

DraftExpress ranks top players by position

We know who the big timers in this draft are. But I think this list is interesting for the 33rd pick and whatever other late picks the Kings may get.

Free Agent Slot Machine!

I did it 5 times. 3 of those times the Kings got nobody. 2 times they got David Lee. David Lee. Ugh.

Nash don't take nothing from Phil.

The Sun's response to Phil's snarky comments reveal a little swag and toughness that seems to have been lacking in past seasons. Let's hope they can show it on the court. Also, who doesn't love Steve Nash?

DraftExpress breaks down players to keep an eye on in this year's Euroleague Final Four

Vesely, Rubio, Childress, and Kleiza are all contributing to European basketball's biggest stage.

Dime mag gives props to "The Rock"

There is a video montage playing there. Phil and Mike compliment Mitch about the 4:10 mark.

Pot calls Kettle 'black!'

Phil Jackson upsets Durant by saying he gets preferential treatment by referees.

Rod Benson of Reno Bighorns is done with D-League

I was kinda hoping the King's would give this guy a shot at some point, considering his defense and rebounding could at least as useful as say, Sean May, Hilton Armstrong, Joey Dorsey, or even Jon Brockman.

Everyone vote for Tyreke! Now!

He is losing in a national poll to Stephen Curry as to which rookie will have the best career.

Is Derrick Favors a possibility?

Interesting article on Favors, his love of cartoons, his childhood dream of playing center, and how rebounding is what he does best. Sounds like a quiet, high-character guy. And he doesn't turn 19 until July. For reference, check DraftExpress.com, they have the Kings currently listed as taking Favors on their mock draft board.

Overall, Nets power forwards...have put up a Player Efficiency Rating (PER) of 11.4 this season, while opposing PFs have a PER of 19.5 against the Nets, good for a differential of -8.1. Not only is this the worst PER differential at the position in the entire league, but only one team, Sacramento comes relatively close in terms of this dubious honor, with a PER differential of -6.4 at the PF position.

More on line-ups, and why we should have kept Sergio

From Wayne Winston: "Recently the Kings have been in turmoil. Players have complained that Coach Paul Westphal plays inconsistent lineups. The Kings have played more different lineups (470) than any other team." It is his version of adjusted plus/minus. Just to warn you.

I know this isn't Kings related, but this is just....no words.

Kings are too hands off; study links winning to touchy-feeliness

Michael W. Kraus led a research team that coded every bump, hug and high five in a single game played by each team in the National Basketball Association early last season. In a paper due out this year in the journal Emotion, Mr. Kraus and his co-authors, Cassy Huang and Dr. Keltner, report that with a few exceptions, good teams tended to be touchier than bad ones. The most touch-bonded teams were the Boston Celtics and the Los Angeles Lakers, currently two of the league’s top teams; at the bottom were the mediocre Sacramento Kings and Charlotte Bobcats.

With a lot less notice than it deserves, Latavious Williams will make history tonight. Williams -- a 6-foot-8 small forward rated among the top high school players in the country -- will become the first player to jump from high school to the NBA's D-League.

help wanted

No, this is not a job posting. You all can go to craigslist for that. What I am looking for help with is the same thing many teams in the NBA are constantly in need of: tough, talented big men.  ...
