Jan 5, 2023, 12:46 PM | Updated: 12:48 pm

On the latest edition of Return of the Roar podcast, Chris Watkins and Frankie Cartoscelli discussed the past week of Sacramento Kings action, broke down the back-to-back games against Utah and Atlanta, dove into the NBA’s first batch of All-Star Game voting results, and laid out the road ahead as Sacramento begins an important seven-game stretch.

Also: Which dunk from the past week impressed you the most?

Topics Discussed:

  • The NBA All-Star fan voting totals were released on Thursday and were… interesting.
  • Sacramento continues to challenge Kings fans’ blood pressure and stress levels
  • Breaking down Tuesday’s win over Utah and Wednesday’s loss to Atlanta
  • De’Aaron Fox is Mr. Fourth Quarter
  • There were some odd rotation choices this week
  • Six of Sacramento’s next eight games will occur at Golden 1 Center. The Kings need to protect their home court.
  • What was the best dunk from this past week of action? (ex. Fox’s big dunk against Atlanta, Fox’s late jam in Utah, etc.)

The Return of the Roar podcast is a Sacramento Kings podcast hosted by Kings beat writer Frankie Cartoscelli and digital content producer Chris Watkins for Sactown Sports 1140.
