NBC Sports California analyst and former Sacramento Kings forward Kenny Thomas joined The Carmichael Dave Show with Jason Ross Wednesday morning to talk about the team’s recent loss to the Milwaukee Bucks, preview the upcoming four-game road trip and more.

Topics discussed include:

  • If Kenny was ever involved in any on-court melees as a player
  • His perspective on the Trey Lyles and Brook Lopez altercation
  • Was a one-game suspension appropriate punishment for Lyles?
  • The shoe sponsors Kenny had when he played
  • What do the Sacramento Kings need to do in the final 15 games?
  • “The way that they’re competing, they’re competing at a very high level right now. Which I feel like is going to turn over into them going into the postseason because this is the perfect time. And the way that they’re evolving on the defensive end…is going to to totally open up from the standpoint to where I feel like they’re going to start trusting each other.”
  • A new segment where Kenny tries to guess his old post-game press conferences
