Friday Footnotes

  • Kevin Martin thinks he'll be back next week. Couldn't come at a better time for my fantasy team the Kings.
  • Reggie Theus said the injured starters (Martin and Mike Bibby) will have to earn their jobs back. I'd be shocked if Martin isn't starting by Game 2 of his return; Bibby, I think, will also get into the starting lineup quickly, based more on Reggie's past statements about his leadership than any talent concerns.
  • Yahoo!'s Top 40 Sports Figures of the Year, as decided by 47 bloggers. My ballot had Ron Artest and Isiah Thomas both rather high.
  • Larry Brown, who lobbied for the Kings job this summer but barely got a look from the Maloofs, helped Theus slip into the circles of NBA coaching a few years ago.
