One of the best blogs on the Internet is Sactown Royalty. No one outside Kevin Johnson had a bigger impact on keeping the Kings in Sacramento than the SR community. So with the Kings coming to town tonight, I felt it was a good opportunity to harangue Greg Wissinger, one of the site's editors, into answering three questions. Here's what he said:
What do Kings fan feel is their team's actual ceiling right now? Playoffs? 45 wins? 40 wins?
We recently did a poll at Sactown Royalty, and most fans are now guessing anywhere from 35-45 wins. We're really unsure how to predict the rest of the year, though. The Kings have played the second toughest schedule in the league thus far, and are on pace for 53 wins. None of us thinks they'll win 53, but we also didn't think they'd be this good. Totally new territory for Kings fans, and we're just enjoying.
Do you think DeMarcus Cousins is the best center in the NBA? In a seven-game series, would you take him over Dwight Howard or Marc Gasol?
I'm not sure if Cousins is the best, but he's obviously in that conversation now. I would take Cousins in a seven-game series over Dwight or Marc, simply because he's a different type of center from those guys. I think they are all great in the own ways, but I think Cousins has shown an ability to completely take over a game offensively, while still contributing on defense. Besides, I'm a Kings fan, of course I'm going to go the homer route here.
What's your prediction for tonight's game?
