I had the opportunity to work as a PR lackey yesterday as part of my internship at the Sacramento Bee. Thus, I got to talk to a few semi-important people and get a really good view of the game...just a few things I noticed, certainly nothing earth-shattering -
Ron Artest is really vocal when it comes to getting the ball or running the play that he wants to run. And it seems like the rest of the Kings would rather defer to his will than deal with the consequences. He doesn't demand the ball every time down but when he does, the offense better run through him. This worked out better than expected last night, with the exception of the atrocious pass to Mikki with 10 seconds left.
Reggie Theus is also more vocal than he appears to be, especially when the Kings are on defense. Most of that was probably a product of the fact that the Kings forgot how to rebound yesterday.
Kevin Martin's legs are about the size of my forearms.
Marty Mac is a really, really, really funny dude.
And finally, I got the chance to ask Jim Kozimor if he really calls Grant "Peaches". Unfortunately, it seems that it is not the case. He seemed legitimately confused and said that he'd heard that rumor from someone else and didn't know anything about it until then.
I was going to call Grant "Peaches", but I (rather wisely I think) played it safe.
