“Handful” of Kings players have returned to practice facility

According to James Ham, some players have started working out at the practice facility again while following new guidelines.

For the first time since the NBA shut down on March 11th, which feels like an eternity ago, the Sacramento Kings reopened their practice facilities as they previously announced their intentions to in a formal statement

Some of the policies and procedures in place for when players returned to the facility included: 

  • No more than four players will be permitted into the facility at any one time
  • No group activity will occur, including scrimmages
  • Staff and players are required to always wear a facemask except players when involved in physical activity
  • Temperatures of anyone entering the facility will be recorded for additional safety 
  • 30-minute sanitizing breaks

James Ham of NBC Sports reported yesterday that a €œhandful of Kings players made it out to the practice facility on Monday for voluntary workouts€ in a tweet. 

 

Though it's unclear about the specifics of who those players were and how many exactly to meet the policies in place, the practice went smoothly for everyone involved. 

There's still no word on when the NBA season will officially resume (if it even will) but it definitely looks like the players want to be back on the court again.

My friend Phil works on this show and storyboarded on this episode. He asked me how it feels. I described how painful it is for Kings fans, but also how some of us are hopeful that Vlade and Vivek see it. He responded: “Wouldn’t it be amazing if they stepped down because of this episode?”

My favorite part was “Who do we all hate?” and Boogie in the background saying “Stauskas”

If I won the lottery, I’d commission Adam McKay and Michael Lewis to write and direct (still workshopping this) “The Big Shart” based on the dysfunction that’s now spanned multiple decades and ownership groups here in Kingsland. If the jackpot was large enough I’d bring in the Coen Brothers to turn up the absurdity dial.
