KingsCast: This Team Isn’t Worth Talking About, So…

 

At 8-14 and coming off two straight ass-kickings, we’ve tired ourselves of talking about this putrid team. Instead, we focus (most) our attention on hyping up a Kings team that does care: the STOCKTON Kings.

We divulge into the G-League world, and close by reviewing some of our preseason “sleeper” squads. Unsurprisingly, Jill’s team’s are killing it; Sam regrets ever thinking the Magic could be good.

Tune in Friday for our next (and much needed) fan roundtable discussion!

KingsCast: The Team Hits Rock Bottom, But We’re…

 

The Alvin Gentry era began much like the Luke Walton era ended: with a whimper. Sacramento couldn’t finish off the 76ers G-League team, and now sit at 6-12 on the young season.

In other words, this team has given us little to be thankful for. But, we nonetheless review the game, try to find positives amidst the sadness, and Jill ends the episode with a burning hot (you’ll see) Jill’s Water Cooler.

Happy Thanksgiving y’all! Thanks for listening 🙂

KingsCast: It’s Alvin Gentry Time, And Jill Starts…

It finally happened. Luke Walton, the 2nd-winningest coach in Kings history *sheds single tear* was let go on Sunday. Now, the Kings must push ahead under the guidance of 67-year-old Alvin Gentry, a seasoned NBA head man.

We discuss the coaching switch, and Jill reveals two candidates she’d like to see take the job in Sacramento (the list is long, and more names will be shared in the future). We close with a look at tonight’s game vs Philly, and how we expect a lot of 2018 Joerger-Kings vibes going forth.

KingsCast: Another Great Friday Show, This Time With…

It’s Friday, so that’s the good news. But the Kings also play today, which is… well, it’s something!

We welcome Sacramento legend, comedian, and podcast host/writer Johnny Taylor to the show, as we discuss the depressing state of the Kings. We end with a “Jill’s Water Cooler” that will remind you that ALL NBA refs are corrupt (if you’re a true Kings fan, you already knew that).

KingsCast: The Kings Found A Win, And We…

The 4-game losing streak (that felt more like a 40 games) finally ended for Sacramento on Monday. Now they shift their focus to another poor team, the Timberwolves, as they try and salvage this road trip with a 2-2 record.

We recap the last few days in Kings-land, share some NBA throwback tales that will make you feel better about yourself, and tease our comedic guest for Friday!

KingsCast: Luke Walton’s Headed For The Door, So…

It’s been 10 days since the Kings last won a game, and their Head Coach is finally and officially on the hot seat.

We discuss the Monday news from Sam Amick/Shams, briefly discuss the Kings shameful loss to OKC, and what life will be like post-Walton (hint: Gentry is not much of an upgrade). We don’t even preview much of tonight’s Pistons game because, I mean, why bother? The Kings are in a weird spot right now, and it’s only been 13 games. We just wanted to get out feelings out there so we can somehow survive the remaining 69 that lie ahead.

KingsCast: A Fun Friday Show With Sac Republic’s…

Coming off their ugliest loss of the season, the Kings gave us plenty to vent about… so that’s exactly what we did.

The highly opinionated, ever-entertaining Connor Sutton (host of “The Breakaway: A Republic FC podcast”) grabs a mic, a dark room, and joins us for this episode. We cover the Kings recent woes, their next opponent (and why Sam admittedly fears them) and Marvin Bagley’s next home. We end, as usual for Friday’s, with “Jill’s Water Cooler,” and Connor even takes it upon himself to share his own fun story (it was okay. He tried).

KingsCast: The Kings Hate 3rd Quarters, And Another…

On Monday, the Kings were granted a golden chance to snag a win from the Ayton-less Phoenix Suns. In typical Sacramento fashion, they fell asleep in the second half, before waking up just a bit too late.

We recap that “disgusting” game, analyze GM Monte McNair’s random Monday interview with The Athletic, and send out ~ good vibes ~ in hopes this 2-game losing skid will quickly end in San Antonio tonight.

KingsCast: A Weekend In Review, And We Preview…

For the second week in a row, the Kings split their Friday/Sunday games, winning the first and losing the second. We discuss all that went right and wrong as Sacramento continues to tease who they truly are (we still have no clue).

We end by previewing tonight’s showdown against Phoenix and their next 4 game roadie starting Wednesday (hint: we believe they can have a perfect trip *gasps*)

KingsCast: Matia Divac (Yes, THAT Divac) Joins Our…

The Hoop-Ball Kings podcast has had some awesome Friday guests; this week is no different. A college friend of Sam’s, Matia Divac was kind of enough to Zoom us from LA and give us an insight unlike ANY we’ve had thus far. We discuss SO much, opening the floor to Matia as he shares his thoughts on the Kings and what it was like to grow up with a famous Dad.

We could give a more descriptive tease, but it’d be pointless. Odds are you won’t even read to this point- and if you are, what are you doing?! Come on man! Just listen and enjoy 🙂

KingsCast: The Jazz Own The Kings, But We…

The Kings are now 3-4, as we analyze yet another loss to the Utah Jazz. BUT… this squad is undoubtedly a resilient bunch. We touch on a currently broken De’Aaron Fox, the Kings refusal to grab defensive rebounds, and their 4 game home-stand starting tonight against the birds from New Orleans.

Finally, we tease our Friday guest, who may or may not have a Hall of Fame Dad. You don’t want to miss that episode!!

KingsCast: The Kings Are Playing With Our Emotions,…

 

A face in Kings media, we are happy to have newly-minted dad Matt George (ABC10 and host of the “Locked On” Kings Podcast) guest-hosts this Friday episode with the crew! We discuss the thrilling win in Phoenix, test Matt’s knowledge of Kings buzzer beaters, and Jill shares a great story of overcoming adversity in a (slightly strange) “Jill’s Water Cooler.”

KingsCast: Preview of Kings at Suns, And We…

 

The Sacramento Kings kick-off their first road trip of 2021 tonight in Phoenix. We share our keys to getting back in the win column, dissect what looked like an entertaining early Halloween party for our team (Hali definitely went too extra), and Sam may even mention Timothee Chalamet for no real reason.

KingsCast: Kings Lose Again, But We Haven’t Panicked…

 

The Kings, once again, fell apart in the second half to a good team and paid the price. Jill and Sam dissect what went wrong against the Warriors, where our panic levels are on certain problems, and Jill continues to blow minds with her latest “Water Cooler” (spoiler: basketball used to be rather barbaric).

KingsCast: Kings Finally Lose and Will of Tha…

 

For the first time since May, the Sacramento Kings lost an organized basketball game… to the West’s best team. We share our initial reactions, revel in Davion Mitchell’s sheer presence, and Will Griffith (Kings Herald writer and host of The Kings Herald Podcast) gets his chance to defend the indefensible: the Kings golden jerseys.
