As soon as Sacramento Kings coach Mike Brown whipped out a laptop in his postgame press conference, we knew what was coming next. Memes.

Let’s set the stage first. Brown, who could face a fine or suspension following a heated ejection during the second half, took issue with how officials called Sunday’s game, especially regarding the free-throw discrepancy, as Milwaukee finished the night with 32 attempts at the line.

Following the Kings’ 143-142 loss to the Bucks, Brown brought a laptop with him to the podium and broke down a handful of plays that didn’t go Sacramento’s way.

“The consistency wasn’t here tonight,” Brown said of the officiating. “I’m getting told two different things [following foul calls]. That is really inconsistent.”

That’s all the internet needed to do its work. There was self-promotion.

There was ridiculousness. Why would the Sacramento Kings coach have a  Damian Lillard screensaver? It doesn’t make sense!

Mike Brown was also seen talking about recent cultural phenomena.

And helping couples with some late-night food decisions.

Never change coach.

When is the next Sacramento Kings game?

Sacramento’s five-game road trip will come to an end on Tuesday night when the Kings face the Phoenix Suns at the Footprint Center.

The Kings claimed the first two meetings of this Pacific Division showdown, although Sacramento has yet to face the Suns at full strength with its ‘Big 3’ of Kevin Durant, Bradley Beal, and Devin Booker.
