Kenny Thomas, former Sacramento Kings forward and current analyst for NBC Sports, joined the Carmichael Dave Show with Jason Ross, to discuss his thoughts on the current team. Thomas will join the show weekly for the remainder of the Kings season.

Topics discussed include

  • Kevin Huerter cannot have the K-9 nickname.
  • If players notice and care when general managers get extensions
  • Another move, preferably a backup big man, should be made before the next season.
  • How Domantas Sabonis’ ball movement compare to former Kings’ players like Brad Miller
  • “I would love to see Sabonis keep that ball a little bit more, kind of like Brad used to do it, Chris Webber used to do, especially when they have the ball in his hands.”
  • Kenny’s relationship with Mike Brown and the coach’s impact on the organization
  • Who impacts the culture of an organization more, the players or coaches
  • If  young basketball players are taught the fundamentals instead of just scoring and looking good
