Three questions on Rockets vs. Kings for Sactown Royalty

We ask Greg Wissinger to help us preview tonight's game. One of the best blogs on the Internet is Sactown Royalty. No one outside Kevin Johnson had a bigger impact on keeping the Kings in Sacramento than the SR community. So with the Kings coming to town tonight, I felt it was a good opportunity to harangue Greg Wissinger, one of the site's editors, into answering three questions. Here's what he said: What do Kings fan feel is their team's actual ceiling right now? Playoffs? 45 wins? 40 wins? We recently did a poll at Sactown Royalty, and most fans are now guessing anywhere from 35-45...

Chaos, Confusion and Copycats - Is The Play The Thing Anymore?

I'll have grounds More relative than this—the play's the thing Wherein I'll catch the conscience of the King. Hamlet Act 2, scene 2, 603–605 Hamlet, as you might recall, does not live happily ever after.  The play wasn't so much the thing in the end. The conscience of the kings of the NBA drifts ever further from plays, it would seem. First, though, a little pop quiz.  It's not fair if you google it. Remember, the internet is all about honor. Who said this? There is no time for X to call plays after a stop, and the coach likes it that way. “We try not to call any plays if we...
