Today's team?

THE SACRAMENTO KINGS

PG - Vasquez/F you Isaiah Thomas/Fredette/McCallum
SG - McLemore/Thornton
SF - LRMaM/Salmons/Outlaw
PF - Thompson/Landry/Patterson
C - Cousins/Hayes

Head Coach - Mike Malone
General Manager - Pete D'Alessandro



1. TRUE or FALSE: If the Kings moved to Seattle, it would have been better for the NBA.

2. TRUE or FALSE: The Marcus Cousins will get his stuff together, prove he deserves the money, and play and act like a franchise player this season.
Proper enunciation is important. "The" Marcus, not DeMarcus.

3. Even though he hasn't coached an NBA game yet, everyone loves Mike Malone. Everyone. So proclaim your love for Mike Malone.

4a. Who should start at Point Guard?
4b. Who should start at Shooting Guard?
4c. Who should start at Small Forward?
4d. Who should start at Power Forward?
4e. Who should start at...just kidding, its The Cousins.


5. On a scale of Bobcats to Thunder, how excited are you for the Kings future?




BONUS: NBA GEOGRAPHY TRIVIA

I don't know much about Sacramento. Actually I know nothing about Sacramento.
I know it's close to San Francisco, I know they have the Kings, and I know....that's it's California's State Capital!!

State Capital, y'all! Woo Hoo! Hooray for Sacramento! Here's a Picture:




So this got me thinking. How many NBA Cities are also the State Capital? By my count, it's EIGHT!

So without cheating (c'mon don't cheat...test yourself), name all eight NBA cities that are also State Capitals.
I just gave you the first one. Seven to go.

First one to do it, gets repped by The Bagelred.



Next up: San Antonio Spurs. Have a Five Question suggestion for the Spurs? Send me a PM with ideas.

1. TRUE or FALSE: If the Kings moved to Seattle, it would have been better for the NBA. **** Seattle

2. TRUE or FALSE: The Marcus Cousins will get his stuff together, prove he deserves the money, and play and act like a franchise player this season. Not sure about Franchise player but he will be by far the Kings best player and should improve I still think he's a couple years away from the franchise level (if he can ever get there)

3. Even though he hasn't coached an NBA game yet, everyone loves Mike Malone. Everyone. So proclaim your love for Mike Malone. Seems like a no nonsense type guy and straight talker so I'm proclaiming my love for him plus the assistants (his dad) he has brought it have had rave reviews.

4a. Who should start at Point Guard?
4b. Who should start at Shooting Guard?
4c. Who should start at Small Forward?
4d. Who should start at Power Forward?

PG: Vasquez, SG: Mclemore (Thronton is better at this point but we need to develop M16), SF: Someone we trade for otherwise Luke Moute , PF: Patterson for floor spacing.


5. On a scale of Bobcats to Thunder, how excited are you for the Kings future? All depends what lottery pick we get next draft we still only got one elite talent on the roster so much closer to the Bobcats at this point in terms of win/losses.

1. TRUE or FALSE: If the Kings moved to Seattle, it would have been better for the NBA.
--I think Seattle as a city takes a massive dump over the already dump-ish Sacramento. Otherwise, who really gives a shit? Give the city a winner and any city looks like a good host. There a few exceptions to that (GS, Cleveland), but I doubt Seattle, and I know Sacramento, aren't it.

2. TRUE or FALSE: The Marcus Cousins will get his stuff together, prove he deserves the money, and play and act like a franchise player this season.
Proper enunciation is important. "The" Marcus, not DeMarcus.

--Doubt it. I hope so because I feel the league is about to have a huge influx of quality bigs over the next 2-3 seasons and Cousins has the talent to be leading the way. But then I look at his fat face and all I have are doubts.

Look at this!


And he looks like that all the time. I can't explain it. Sometimes you look at a player from an aesthetics stand point and just know they won't amount to greatness. Can anyone imagine an NBA superstar looking like Chris Kaman? I can't. It's like that 30 Rock quote. "Stick to kings and queens of England. There'll never be a President Ashton or Dr. Katniss or non-sexually confused Lorne." Cousins face is a non-sexually confused Lorne.

3. Even though he hasn't coached an NBA game yet, everyone loves Mike Malone. Everyone. So proclaim your love for Mike Malone.
-He looks like a celebrity. Who am I reminded of? Can't figure it out.

4a. Who should start at Point Guard?
-Vasquez
4b. Who should start at Shooting Guard?
-McLemore
4c. Who should start at Small Forward?
-Mbah a Moute
4d. Who should start at Power Forward?
-Patterson

Basically start the guys you hope can develop into players worth keeping. You aren't winning anything with the roster as is. Might as well figure out who is a keeper.

5. On a scale of Bobcats to Thunder, how excited are you for the Kings future?
-At some point next season I think I will forget they exist as a franchise.

1. TRUE or FALSE: If the Kings moved to Seattle, it would have been better for the NBA.

nah. i prefer teams to just stay where they are. the kings had great fans not too long ago, its just that their team is trash.

2. TRUE or FALSE: The Marcus Cousins will get his stuff together, prove he deserves the money, and play and act like a franchise player this season.

to an extent, but not fully. his impact wont be worth his pay this season, but i think a year or two down the road, he could get there.

i love his talent, but as far as i can tell, he still hasnt matured in any meaningful way.

3. Even though he hasn't coached an NBA game yet, everyone loves Mike Malone. Everyone. So proclaim your love for Mike Malone.


he was the warriors defensive coach right? these first year coaches are always a shot in the dark.

4a. Who should start at Point Guard?
4b. Who should start at Shooting Guard?
4c. Who should start at Small Forward?
4d. Who should start at Power Forward?

vasquez
mclemore
mbah moute
thompson

5. On a scale of Bobcats to Thunder, how excited are you for the Kings future?

bobcatder

much closer to thhe bobcats than the thunder.

cousins and mclemore are really talented guys, and vasquez, thompson, landry, and thornton are good assets, but i just dont trust mclemore or cousins to really fulfill their potential.

He's still in his final year rookie contract of 4.9mil so this season he will be worth every penny of that deal.

1. TRUE or FALSE: If the Kings moved to Seattle, it would have been better for the NBA.
A -- False. I love the Sacramento crowds. Just need to give them a decent product.

2. TRUE or FALSE: The Marcus Cousins will get his stuff together, prove he deserves the money, and play and act like a franchise player this season.
A -- I hope that he does eventually, if not this season. He has all the physical tools necessary to dominate. I want to see it.

3. Even though he hasn't coached an NBA game yet, everyone loves Mike Malone. Everyone. So proclaim your love for Mike Malone.

A -- Who is he?

4a. Who should start at Point Guard?
4b. Who should start at Shooting Guard?

4d. Who should start at Power Forward?
4e. Who should start at...just kidding, its The Cousins.

Vasquez, McLemore (Thornton is better, McLemore is the future... might as well develop him now), Luc, Landry, Cousins.

5. On a scale of Bobcats to Thunder, how excited are you for the Kings future?
A -- I'm really excited for them. Assuming current rosters, I only like the Cavs, Thunder, Pelicans, Wizards, Bulls, Rockets, Warriors more.




BONUS: NBA GEOGRAPHY TRIVIA
So without cheating (c'mon don't cheat...test yourself), name all eight NBA cities that are also State Capitals.
A -- I am terrible at geography...
Knicks, Kings, Rockets, Nuggets, 76ers, Bobcats, Celtics, and Wizards for being the Nation's capital... I dunno. Bad at this game.

Peja/Vlade initially since they were from the same place as me (moved to Australia later on) and just stuck ever since. I also liked Mitch Richmond a lot growing up but I was more Richmond fan than a Kings fan at that time.

THE SACRAMENTO KINGS

PG - Vasquez/F you Isaiah Thomas/Fredette/McCallum
SG - McLemore/Thornton
SF - LRMaM/Salmons/Outlaw
PF - Thompson/Landry/Patterson
C - Cousins/Hayes

Head Coach - Mike Malone
General Manager - Pete D'Alessandro



1. TRUE or FALSE: If the Kings moved to Seattle, it would have been better for the NBA.

False. I like the kings staying in Sacto. They are NBA royalty! Despite them moving a bunch of times, they have a title as the royals/kings. Losing that name would suck. We just need a two team expansion. blah blah blah watered down.

2. TRUE or FALSE: The Marcus Cousins will get his stuff together, prove he deserves the money, and play and act like a franchise player this season.
Proper enunciation is important. "The" Marcus, not DeMarcus.

Probably not. He got paid, but their is very little veteran leadership (not that he would respond to much of it anyways) or guidance from the FO to date.

3. Even though he hasn't coached an NBA game yet, everyone loves Mike Malone. Everyone. So proclaim your love for Mike Malone.


If can be with the one you love, love the one you're with.

4a. Who should start at Point Guard? Vasquez
4b. Who should start at Shooting Guard? Thorton
4c. Who should start at Small Forward? the Prince
4d. Who should start at Power Forward? PPat
4e. Who should start at...just kidding, its The Cousins.


5. On a scale of Bobcats to Thunder, how excited are you for the Kings future?

Right about a 5. Should be interesting to watch it develop, but my expectations are low.

Default Re: ISH's FIVE QUESTIONS: Sacramento Kings Edition

1. TRUE or FALSE: If the Kings moved to Seattle, it would have been better for the NBA. FALSE. Wait until you see the games this year now that we have new ownership. I would guess plenty of sellouts and we are already leading the league in season ticket holders.

2. TRUE or FALSE: The Marcus Cousins will get his stuff together, prove he deserves the money, and play and act like a franchise player this season.
Proper enunciation is important. "The" Marcus, not DeMarcus. Man I hope so. So hard to call. I am going with TRUE. He knows how to say all the right things but we won't know until the games start for real.

3. Even though he hasn't coached an NBA game yet, everyone loves Mike Malone. Everyone. So proclaim your love for Mike Malone.
So far so good.

4a. Who should start at Point Guard? Vasquez
4b. Who should start at Shooting Guard? Thorton for now
4c. Who should start at Small Forward? Luc
4d. Who should start at Power Forward? Too close to call.
4e. Who should start at...just kidding, its The Cousins.


5. On a scale of Bobcats to Thunder, how excited are you for the Kings future? Thunder, but I am a Kings homer.

True and False. I think he'll prove he's worth the money and play close to a franchise player. Even if he gets Shaq's help, he's still limited athletically. But he has the inside skill, outside skill, and charge-taking skill to be close to a "franchise" player on the court. But I don't think he'll act like a franchise player. I think he'll still be an immature cry baby.

That's not a question, wtf. But I love him. Proclaimed it since the day he got hired! ...ok, like 2 days later. I thought it was Mike Montgomery for the first 2 days... But seriously, he got lots of love the past couple years to get hired and he was the alleged true mastermind behind the GSW turnaround (well, their slightly improved def, at least).

Depends what kind of aspirations the Kings are looking for. So I'll make 2 lists!
- If Kings actually want to win games and try a miracle run at the playoffs:
Vasquez, Thornton, Luc, JT, Cousins
- If Kings want to pretend to try to win, but are really looking towards future as priority:
anyone, McLemore, anyone, anyone, Cousins

Kings. They have the young talent and a new coach who seems to be pretty well-regarded. Add the new committed ownership and the future looks bright. ...but it's the Sacramento Kings. They pretty much have to build via trade and draft. Maybe a mid-tier FA here and there. So the bright future can still be limited. And the mastermind who built those Adelman teams (GM Geoff Petrie) is gone. We'll see how new GM D'Alessando fairs, but he seems to have a pretty good grasp on it so far. Got rid of low-IQ Tyreke, got a pass-first PG and a hustling, rebounding vet and drafted perhaps the highest upside rookie.
