Hard practices, crazy haircuts, and Jason Williams riding under a bus: Behind the scenes of The Greatest Show On Court

New, comments

Tons of great inside stories from the people who were there.

Kings v Lakers X

Deuce Mason of All Things Kings has been putting together audio documentaries of the Kings this season, and his latest may be the best one yet. Deuce dives into the team behind the infamous Best Show On Court Sports Illustrated cover, and speak with Chris Webber, Vlade Divac, Peja Stojakovic, Doug Christie, Jason Williams, Bobby Jackson and more.

Aside from being a fun trip down memory lane, we get tons of behind the scenes stories. Why was Jason Williams riding in the luggage conpartment on the team bus? Which team member had his hair cut like Mr T for a nationally televised game before chickening out? You’ll have to listen because I wouldn’t be able to do the stories justice.

I will say that my favorite part is hearing about the hard practices and the hard fought battles between the starters and the bench mob.

It’s a fantastic look at one of the best seasons in team history. Check it out.
