Looking forward to the Kings' season

Let's get excited.

Ed Szczepanski-USA TODAY Sports

The season is upon us, finally.  We've been through Summer League, we've overanalyzed preseason games, and I've talked myself into every offseason move being brilliant and beyond reproach.  The ritual is complete, and now we get to enjoy some games.  In no particular order, here are the things I'm looking forward to this season.

  • Ben McLemore and Nik Stauskas battling for the starting SG spot, and our hearts
  • Figuring out if Darren Collison is good, bad, terrible, a nightmare, awesome, or meh
  • Watching how quickly DeMarcus Cousins racks up five technicals
  • Ben's Pizza Guy commercials
  • League Pass junkies' reactions when they realize Ben is the new pizza guy
  • Eric Moreland sightings
  • Trades, perplexing as they may be
  • Ball movement, hopefully
  • Defense, hopefully-er
  • Healthy Top Hat
  • Dance gif threads, hopefully more than 30 of them
  • The uprising of Ray McCallum fans
  • Pregame haikus
  • Weekly GB&U
  • Grant and Jerry on the broadcasts
  • Gary Gerould on the radio
  • Reggie Evans and his cringe-inducing jump shots
  • Jason Thompson, stretch 4
  • Maybe having an actual bench this season
  • Michael Malone postgame quotes
  • Getting way to excited over a random but fun win in the middle of February
  • Kevin Durant demanding a trade to the Kings
  • Ryan Hollins tricking Kevin Fippin into liking him
  • Wins over the Lakers

Above all else, though, I'm just excited to share another season of Sacramento Kings basketball with you fine people.  The debates, the discussions, the jokes.  This community kicks into high gear during the season, and it makes me love this team and this game even more.

So what about you?  What are you looking forward to the most?
