Vince Carter joins the Sacramento Kings for a new and different ride

Vince Carter is definitely not your average 40-year old, and he is all in to prove himself one more time with the Sacramento Kings. If you grew up in the 1990’s, you’re probably familiar with the video below. The video which shows Vince Carter winning the 2000 NBA Dunk Contest and guaranteeing himself a spot on […] Vince Carter joins the Sacramento Kings for a new and different ride - A Royal Pain - A Royal Pain - A Sacramento Kings Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

The brotherhood of the BIG3

The brotherhood of the BIG3

Retirement isn’t the end. NBA retirement is not the same retirement you or I will experience. When NBA players retire, they’re in the twilight of their athletic prime, but they’re smack dab in the middle of their lives. While “traditional” retirement happens at the age of 65+, NBA players retire in their 30’s and very rarely their 40’s (looking at you, Vince Carter). Their livelihoods are based on an occupation that has a limited shelf life and requires 100% of your time, effort, and focus. When that livelihood is taken away, a player can suddenly stare at a lifetime left to...

David Fizdale is about to be tested.

David Fizdale is about to be tested.

That’s not a bad thing. The coach who made the phrase “take that for data” famous is making the Memphis Grizzlies his. Grit and Grind is on its way out. Vince Carter and Zach Randolph are already in Sacramento. Tony Allen is likely next, moving on from a team who he helped build an identity for. The city of Memphis and Grizzlies fans around the world understand, but still mourn the ending of the greatest era of professional basketball the community has ever known. It now falls on David Fizdale to fully implement his vision. This is something that former Grizzlies Head Coach was never...

Finding a fit for Tony Allen

Finding a fit for Tony Allen

Golden State’s competitors could use his abilities. I think it’s pretty safe to say that Tony Allen won’t be returning to the Memphis Grizzlies next season. The team has only two roster spots remaining with restricted free agent JaMychal Green still in limbo, and the team’s two second round draft picks, Ivan Rabb and Dillon Brooks, unsigned as well. Those precarious situations plus the departures of veterans Vince Carter and Zach Randolph signal a changing of the guard for Memphis. Grit N’ Grind is over, and a younger breed will be ushered in under head coach David Fizdale. In...

Watch the Kings introduce their newest veteran additions

Watch the Kings introduce their newest veteran additions

The Kings formally signed and introduced Vince Carter, Zach Randolph and George Hill yesterday. The Kings made waves this offseason by both having what many considered to be an excellent draft and then going out and signing some quality veterans in Vince Carter, Zach Randolph and George Hill. In case you missed the press conference introducing them yesterday, the Kings posted a video replay on YouTube which you watch above. After listening to them talk and watching both Z-Bo and Vince essentially coaching during the huddles of last night’s summer league game, I’m excited for what they...

Pro’s pros: Carter & Randolph are needed in the NBA

Pro’s pros: Carter & Randolph are needed in the NBA

The NBA needs more Z-Bo and Vinsanity Upon first processing the news of Zach Randolph and Vince Carter departing Memphis to head west and reconnect with Dave Joerger in Sacramento, my reaction was one of bewilderment and anger. I was angry that Randolph and Carter aren’t going to finish their careers on Beale Street. I was angry that they will probably finish their careers with a perpetual dumpster fire of a franchise. I was bewildered that they would rejoin Joerger after all of the riffs which occurred on his watch while he was with the Grizzlies. I thought that both men deserve...
