You knew this had to happen: Sam Amick of The Bee reports that the Kings have banned the use of exercise balls in the Natomas practice facility. In fact. Joe Maloof directed staff to hang signs in the weight room reminding Kings players of the prohibition.
Amick also reports the team is drafting a memo to send out to all 29 other NBA teams warning of the secret dangers of exercise balls. I would like to save the Kings PR staff some time, so here's my version:
"Kings guard Francisco Garcia broke his arm when the exercise ball he was lifting weights on exploded."
I think that gets the point across, and I'd be shocked if any NBA player jumped right on an exercise ball Saturday morning.
