In a shocking display of negligence, the crowd in Indiana looked at the court, puzzled, when they saw only one player in a jersey. It seemed to be a normal game, but when the teams hit the floor, there was Demarcus ready to receive the tip off, but there was no one to tip it off for the Kings.
"Honestly, it took me a couple minutes to realize they weren't there. I mean, we never get the tip off anyway, and usually foul about 9 times in that first minute, so nothing was really different until the team got possession. I went to pass it in, then realized Isaiah wasn't there." the young Center, and defending Western Conference player of the week said.
"There were honestly some improvements I noticed," said Coach Michael Malone, "I mean, we gave up a season low 116 points, and really seemed motivated. I thought Demarcus was especially impressive."
It is unknown where the rest of the team is, but there is speculation that they had just now started watching Breaking Bad, and just stayed at the hotel. Former King and current Assistant, Corliss "Big Nasty" Williamson was considered as a teammate, but the team voted against it, deciding it was a good time to try and give Demarcus some stock for the upcoming All Star game.
While Demarcus put up 31 points of his own, the League rewarded the Kings an additional 61 points in order to make the score seem a little bit better.
No one else on the team could be reached for comment.
This was by far Marcus Thornton's most productive game of the season.
Ray McCallum showed up ready to play, but was still sent to the Bighorns, despite the team being nowhere to be found.
Jason Thompson did come in to argue a foul, but then left and was not heard from again.
