James you were right!

Mr Ham, I had the privilege of making your acquaintance at Moonraker the brewery about a month ago. The kings were either 0-4 or 1-4 at the time and I told you how disappointed I was, that I was actually anticipating a good team this season and felt totally let down. You responded by stating that you weren’t worried and you thought they’d be ok. I walked away stoked I was able to meet you, but fairly certain I’d continue to be disappointed by the Kings. Yet here we are!! I’ll never question your opinion when it comes to the teams current disposition again. I love the podcast and this Kings team, I finally made it to a game last night against the Pacers. The stadium is electrifying and it brings me back to being twelve in 2002. I enjoyed meeting you James and thank you for being nice to myself and Carly. Go Kings!!!

Best show in town

I have to say that over the summer this trio has hit a stride that I’m here for and can’t wait to see during the regular season. They each come prepared with their own talking points and have constructive debates about the team and the dynamics surrounding them. It’s also great to hear them in the media scrums and being able to share that extra insight with us. I especially enjoy the fresh perspective of Brenden Nunes and how he can bounce his experiences off of the grizzled vets in Sean Cunningham and James Ham. But at the end of the day I’m just happy to hear a pod that is all about Kings basketball and realistic expectations. The entertainment value isn’t about conflict or drama but rather in breaking down and understanding the news of the week. This is the definitive listen for all Kings fans as far as I’m concerned and I’m excited to join the patreon and take in more of their content.
