The Zohan's Blog

Just in case anybody cares...I modified Omri's grammar slightly, but nothing groundbreaking. The original is in the link up top if you like. Finally! It's been a while since I could write to you celebrating an important victory in the league. Rumors have come up lately about the possibility of the Kings leaving the city of Sacramento. In response to those rumors, the city's fans definitely came out and made their presence felt, selling out Arco for our game against the Clippers (W, 105-99). The fans have come to make their voice heard and the Arena was completely packed. There are tens of thousands of fans who are still behind the team and really hope that the squad will remain in Sacramento. They really created an extraordinary atmosphere Monday night and they produced some crazy energy and effort that moved us all, and ultimately, even helped us win. The Clippers game was a very good game for us on both sides of the court. For once, we made good decisions toward the end of the game and played good defense. Once we were able to stop the attack of the Clippers, automatically we got some offensive confidence too. It was a great win and very important to the team's morale and the fans. Some would argue that we should beat a team like the Clippers, since they are on our level. But we must not forget that during the season we have beat the Lakers, Denver, Phoenix, Orlando and Portland - some playoff teams who will fight for the championship at the end of the year. Just before the end of the trade deadline we acquired Marcus Thornton, who gave a great performance against the Clippers as well. Marcus was "hot", so in turn he got a lot of looks at the basket. When he is focused, it is very hard to stop him, and I'm glad he's with us from now on. It was important to enter the game aggressively, penetrate to the basket and get to the foul line. In general, it is important for me to get into the flow of the game through penetration to the basket, reaching the line and playing aggressive. Then, the shots from the outside come. Finally, I cannot talk about a Clippers game and not to mention their star, Blake Griffin. Blake is a very special player, an exceptionally strong forward who can play with his back to basket, and the scary thing is he is only going to improve. Scary. It's too early to say whether in another dozen years Blake will be remembered as one of the best, but certainly the potential is there, and the sky seems to be the limit. He does not seem to be getting tired from the long NBA season- he won the dunk contest, played in All-Star game and looks strong going forward. I think the Clippers a great place for him. They are a very young team, playing without their leading scorer, Eric Gordon, so I am confident that next year they will be in the playoffs. Does he need to make a move like Carmelo or LeBron, moving to the Knicks or Miami to search for Championship? It depends on him, if he believes he can make the Clippers better and they can continue to build around him. Anyway, with Blake in LA, the Clippers will improve and be strong next season. He is an amazing guy, who is also a good friend, a star in this basketball league and it is only a matter of time until his time to shine will truly come.....soon.
