5 Things You Didn't Know About Marco Belinelli

The beauty of following a basketball team as closely as we follow the Sacramento Kings is that through nothing but unavoidable time spent obsessing over the comings and going of this organization, we get to know a lot about the players that play here, on and off the court. When I was doing a little recon on Predrag Drobnjak for a post last week, I came across a truly amazing personal website from his time with the Seattle Supersonics. I thought, ‘there has to be so much of this weird stuff out there just waiting to be found’ and hence, the truly buzzfeedy ‘things you didn’t know...

Andrea Bargnani scores 22 for Italy, but Ukraine comeback ends winning streak

Talking Marco Belinelli with San Antonio Spurs blogger Michael Erler

The first major signing of Sacramento's offseason was the addition of former Spurs sharpshooter Marco Belinelli.  For a team that has been as desperate for shooting as Sacramento has been, Belinelli's addition to the team was most welcome. Recently I had a Q&A with Michael Erler of SB Nation's Spurs blog Pounding the Rock about Ray McCallum, who the Kings traded to the Spurs earlier this summer.  Michael was kind enough to return the favor and answer some of my own questions about Marco. Q: We all know Marco's reputation for shooting the ball, but what else does he bring to the table? A:...
