James Ham be knowing

Salute to James, Brenden, & Sean.

NotTheRealBatman ,

Good but has its issues

This is one of the best shows for the Sacramento Kings from an informative standpoint, but the entertainment side of it is questionable. From the boyish immaturity, to the reliance on homophobic jokes and the constant bickering, the newly dubbed trio hasn’t found a chemistry nor collective voice to make me hungry for more.
However, the insider information given on this podcast is unmatched. James Ham and Sean Cunningham might know the Kings better than anyone outside the payroll. While Brenden Nunes brings a more quizzical perspective that breaks down his co-hosts’ talking points in a very effective manner.
Overall, it’s a show on the rise with room to improve. Hopefully both the Kings and the Kings Beat have a productive off-season to find the communication skills needed to take things to the next level.

Sacramento mikey ,
