Kenny Thomas and the Kings are still in New Mexico, which illicits a Kenny Thomas feature from Sam Amick of The Bee. Buried under the local flavor is an interesting admission from the coach.
"When it's all said and done, I think it will be clear who's better for us, not necessarily who has the better numbers, but who's the best for other guys," Kings coach Reggie Theus said of the position battle. "Right now, I think Kenny is playing closer to what I expect out of him than Mikki is. ... I think he's playing hard."
That'd seem to be a vote for K-9 (woof!), right?
Here's how the battle breaks down right now:
Kenny Thomas: 58 minutes, 11 points, 11 rebounds
Mikki Moore: 70 minutes, 11 points, 9 rebounds
Advantage: Everyone else in the league.
