I was just sent the following link by a fellow Kings fan in an email titled, "What happened?....a trip down memory lane!"
The link sent in the email came from an article by The Sports Guy, AKA Bill Simmons, (Yes, I'm convinced his legal name is The Sports Guy!) The article details among other things, the Kings 2002 playoff run. Looking back on it, The Sports Guy offers a very interesting take on the Kings and where we were in that given period of time.
The article was published just prior to the start of the 2002 Finals and contains a "fresh" take on the events that had just taken place, namely the Kings/Lakers series and how Simmons felt the series would be viewed in the years to come.
Check it out for a good, quick read!
