Marvin Bagley 18 Points Full Highlights (1/13/2020)

Marvin Bagley has been injured for a lot of the season. The Kings haven’t been very good. Are these two things related? On the surface, they almost have to be. Not many teams don’t get worse when you take away their recent 2nd overall pick. I’m not so sure about the correlation (how many wins…

Nemanja Bjelica Career High 34 Points/8 Threes Full Highlights (1/13/2020)

I’m not an NBA coach, but when you’ve got a guy on your team who is 8 out of 10 from three on the game, and you’re running an out-of-bounds play down by 2 with 1 second left, I make dang well sure that I get the ball to the guy who has already proven…

Nemanja Bjelica 19 Points Full Highlights (1/7/2020)

Merry Christmas Nemanja Bjelica! For some reason I thought that Eastern Orthodox peeps celebrated that on Monday the 6th, but no, it’s definitely Tuesday the 7th, as the commentators so kindly informed me. I’m dumb. Forgive me. Another thing I’m ignorant of: what sort of crazy rituals they do in Serbia to celebrate. I presume…

Trevor Ariza 18 Points Full Highlights (1/6/2020)

Trevor Ariza has always been known as a contract year guy who tricks teams into thinking that the way he plays during contract years is the way he’ll play all the time if you just give him enough money. This reputation, which is definitely not a secret if I know about it, didn’t prevent the…

Richaun Holmes 18 Points Full Highlights (1/2/2020)

Faintly, at the end of this video as Richaun Holmes was shooting free throws, I could hear “MVP” chants. It would be easy to dismiss the chants as ironic encouragement from a rowdy section of the stands for a player who had just missed their first free throw and was hoping to hit the second,…

Richaun Holmes 22 Points/3 Blocks Full Highlights (12/31/2019)

If Dewayne Dedmon can demand a trade for being so bad that he can’t even get in the rotation for the Kings, I don’t see why Richaun Holmes can’t demand a trade for being on a team so bad that it has Dewayne Dedmon on it. It might be considered bad form for the best…

Richaun Holmes 18 Points Full Highlights (12/29/2019)

16 points in the first half for Richaun Holmes, 2 in the second half. I’ve spent a lot of time talking this guy up as the best player on the Kings, all things considered (and I will stand by that assertion until the day comes when he is no longer on the Kings and is…

Nemanja Bjelica 27 Points Full Highlights (12/29/2019)

DTB’S OFFICIAL* FUN** FACT*** OF THE DAY****: this is the first 20-point game for Nemanja Bjelica this season. He had a 30-point game, and a 19-point game, but no games in the 20-29 range. Isn’t that fun? If you don’t think that fact was fun, don’t blame me, check the disclaimers at the bottom of…

Bogdan Bogdanovic 22 Points Full Highlights (12/28/2019)

Another game, another disappointing loss for the Kings, this time against the similarly-hapless Suns. If the result had been switched, I’d be saying “Another game, another disappointing loss for the Suns”, but one of these teams had to win (so claims the NBA, who apparently don’t believe in ties), and thus subvert expectations. If there…

Richaun Holmes 20 Points/18 Rebounds Full Highlights (12/26/2019)

I am really trying hard to find some justification for not straight-up anointing Richaun Holmes as the Kings best player right now. I’m seriously about to anoint him right here, right now, as the Kings best player, and unless someone comes in with some evidence that he’s not, it’s happening. Advanced stats notoriously love low-volume…
