I recently came across a new YouTube channel featuring Sacramento’s very own Jerry Reynolds. Apparently, he has a new video podcast called the Jerry Reynolds Show. In it he interviews local Sacramento and Kings personalities. Its not bad at all. I have all the episodes to date featured on our Video page under “The Jerry Reynolds Show” category. The Jason Ross episode was interesting as he got his start in media the same way I did, but he stuck with it while i jumped ship in pursuit of the $$$. Ha!
36 percent of Kings games this season have been decided by 3 points or less. In those contests, Sacramento is 5-4. The team is still above .500 in one-possession games, but at that rate, can we as Kings fans handle 21 more nail biters this season? The margin of error is just too great. Three wins or losses either way could have already sealed the destiny of this team. Playing to the level of their competition is the only way to describe the 2019-20 Sacramento kings. Except for those first five games, the team has basically played themselves to near draws with every team they have faced since. They have yet to build a big lead early and run away with a game. At this rate, Kyle Guy will never get a chance to make his NBA debut!
I can’t tell. Are the Kings really a team that has turned the corner over the last 6 games? Or are the Lakers not quite as good as everyone (and their record) says they are? This new-found thing called defense has really come on in a rather surprising fashion for Sacramento of late. I mean Kayte C on the telecast mentioned that the team was near the bottom in defensive rating during the first 5 games but have rocketed to near the top spot in their next 5. They totally shut down the Lakers offense tonight. If it wasn’t for the free throw disparity, we might be talking about one of the biggest upsets of this young season. But LA does have LBJ and AD, and superstars win games. Regardless, I don’t see any reason why fans should be pulling the plug on this season. This team will be able to hold their own until Bagley and Fox return. They are currently only two games out of the 8th spot and I still don’t have faith that the Suns, Mavs, and Wolves will hold up their hot play over time. Bring on the Celtics!
