The Sacramento Kings season leaves us with a lot of unanswered questions including… What’s next for Marvin Bagley? Would he have played again? Will Buddy remain on the bench? Will Buddy be happy remaining on the bench? What will next NBA season look like? Are we looking at a complete change in NBA business? Thanks for listening, stay home, and be safe!
Damien talks with Matt George, host of the Locked On Kings podcast, about a variety of topics including how the NBA season ended, should it continue, will it continue, and in what form. Real life mixes with basketball here as we face uncertainty in many different forms.
The Kings had numerous chances against one of the elite squads from the other conference, but simply couldn’t keep Toronto from late scores and fell by three. Damien Barling is postgame!
The banged-up 76ers still had enough to topple the Kings, as Tobias Harris went big and Sacramento could never quite get on track. A big weekend looms, with Richaun Holmes’ potential return part of the fun. Damien Barling has your pod locked and loaded!
It got interesting but the Kings win again. Its amazing this team is playing meaningful basketball at the start of March. Not only playing meaningful basketball but playing really well. Fox and Bazemore continue to be the cornerstones of the team.
The Kings held a double digit lead into the third quarter on the road in Oklahoma City, but couldn’t lock it down. Damien Barling is postgame!
The final stretch in the 4th quarter was ugly, but the Kings had done enough to win previously, and it held up. Damien Barling is postgame!
Kings put up a heck of a fight but a 2 minute stretch in the 4th doomed their upset attempts. Slick coaching move by Luke Walton… Small ball. No Greek Freak, no problem. Bucks 5-0 with Giannis. Exciting 3rd quarter. Luke Walton press conference.
Great overall performance following the trade deadline for the Kings. Consistent shooting and solid defense led the way. 20 forced turnovers. Still a problem getting to the line. No Richaun Holmes tonight. Harry Giles started and was very effective in the 14 minutes he played. Big nights from Belly and Bogi.
Aaron Bruski joins host Damien Barling to discuss the Kings moves at the deadline… plus, basketball IQ topics and Luke Walton’s recent moves.

Some familiar faces took some unfamiliar roles. The Kings used a huge 4th quarter to down the Phoenix Suns … winning back to back games and 3 of their last 4. Dedmon and Giles play key roles with Richaun Holmes out.
In their first game of the new year and their first game of the new decade, the Kings win the strangest back and forth of the season, beating the Memphis Grizzles and snapping an 8 game losing streak.
