When the day is long and the night, the night is yours alone. When you’re sure you’ve had enough of this life, well hang on. -REM
Just a short little quick one. Short like Herve Villechaize’s walking stick one. The plane! The plane! Last night, I was watching the Celtics/Kings game on a super secret website that plays such things. Like my main man Travis Bickle always says, ”a secret signal for the secret service.” So I’m watching the game, from the Sacramento feed, minding my own business, when who happens along? Bill Walton happens along. Bill Walton hops along. Hop Along Cassidy. Bill Walton hops along Cassidy and is gushing about the Kings. He’s gushing about the Kings as they come out to an early 54-45 halftime lead. Gushing and talking about what a great win this would be for Sacramento. Isn’t this the same Bill Walton who was part of the greatest third quarter teams of all time? A 1986 Boston Celtic team, that in Game 5 of the East semifinals against the Hawks, rolled off an unprecedented 25-0 run in the third quarter to clinch the series. Shouldn’t he know better? He didn’t. He didn’t and he Kings couldn’t hold on to a 10-point second-quarter lead and lost the game 95-90 at home to the Celtics. Wouldn’t you think now that Walton is part of the Sacramento broadcast team, he should have guessed this would happen? I mean, this wasn’t the first time something like this has happened. In fact, this was the tenth time this season that Sacramento lost in a game in which it held a double-digit lead. Shouldn’t he have known, like he says himself, this “is one of the true marvels, not just of basketball, or in America, but in the history of Western Civilization.” He should have at least known that it ties Washington for the most such losses in the NBA. He didn’t. Now you do and that’s something, ain’t it? Sure it is.

Pencil neck geek. Grit eatin’ freak. Scum suckin’, pea head with a lousy physique. He’s a one man, no gut, loosing streak. Nothin’ but a pencil neck geek. -Classy Freddie Blassie
Public Service Announcement: Ok, here we go! Yesterday I wrote some things about Derrick Favors. Nice things. Complimentary things. Flattering things. Things like, “Mark my words, from what I saw last night, Derrick Favors has what it takes to be a legend.” Well sports fans, there’s somebody out there who’s not quite so laudatory. Not quite so applaudatory. No quite so hurrahdatory. That said somebody is DeMarcus Cousins. Read More »

Johnny come lately, the new kid in town. Everybody loves you, so don’t let them down. -The Eagles
Public Service Announcement: Ok, here we go! Everybody’s yipping about Brandon Jennings. Everybody’s yapping about all those points Jennings scored early on. Yipping and yapping. Flipping and flapping. Me included. Not no more. I want you cowboys to know something, there’s a new sheriff in town and his name is Reggie Hammond Tyreke Evans. So y’all be cool. Right on. Tyreke Evans has been cool. Cool as a cucumber. Cool as the other side of the pillow. Right on. Read More »

Can’t you hear all those sweet voices singing, takin’ care of the chosen ones? Can’t you hear all those mission bells ringin’? Say a prayer for the chosen ones. -John Denver
Public Service Announcement: Ok, here we go! Just a quick one. While I’m sick one. Omri Casspi. The Hope. Omri Casspi, the first NBA player from Israel. Last night Casspi scored 22 points in his first start in Sacramento’s 112-109 home win over Washingon. Hooray Omri Casspi! That ties the most points scored by any Kings player in his first NBA start since the team moved to California in 1985. Randy Brown scored 22 against the Clippers in 1992. Now please excuse while I get back to my barfing.

You’ve got the boomin’ system but it’s blasting out doo-doo. You think it’s chocolate milk but it’s watered down yoo-hoo. -Beastie Boys
Public Service Announcement: Ok, here we go! The Sacramento Kings just completed their interconference schedule last night. They completed their interconference schedule by being routed by the Sixers. They’ve been getting routed by Eastern Conference teams all season. Disregarding the lockout-shortened season in 1999, Sacramento’s 1-29 mark against the East is the worst interconference record ever posted by an NBA team in one season. Ever. Sacramento’s 1-29 mark against the East, breaks the previous mark for futility set by the Clippers back in ’87. To make matters worse, they became the first team in NBA history to complete a full season without winning a home game against a team from the rival conference. To make matters worse, I don’t see them getting any better any time soon.

You on point Phife? All the time, tip. Well, then grab the microphone and let your words rip. -Tribe Called Quest
Public Service Announcement: Ok, here we go! Everybody knew Tyreke Evans was gonna be good. Everybody knew the kid could score. Everybody knew the kid could soar. But did you know the kid could run the floor?
Coming into this season, everybody knew Tyreke Evans was going to be one of the most exciting players in college basketball. He’s fast. He’s long. He can beat just about anybody off the dribble. Breaking ankles like nobody’s business. But some folks thought he wasn’t disciplined. Some folks thought he needed to improve upon his fundamentals. Nobody thought he could be the floor general he has become. Read More »

Suns 140 Thunder 118: Goodness gracious! How ’bout this Alvin Gentry character? How ’bout these Suns? Now that’s what I call a run and gun offense. Running and gunning for their third straight game. Alvin Gentry is running and gunning his way into history. He just became the first head coach in NBA history to start a coaching tenure with a particular team and notch three successive victories, each by a margin of 20-or-more points. How about that?

Suns 129 Kings 81: Yup, that score you see there to your left is correct. The Kings are just awful. The Kings lost by forty-eight last night to the Suns. Forty-eight! It’s not the first time either. Read More »

Nuggets 118 Kings 99: Some folks say, “It’s good to be the King.” Not folks in Sacramento. I know Red Auerbach always said, “Basketball is like war in that offensive weapons are developed first, and it always takes a while for the defense to catch up.” But c’mon guys we’re almost halfway through the season already.
