The Kings Herald Show featuring Jerry Reynolds is back with a special, different kind of episode featuring comedian, writer, actor, and most importantly, lifelong Sacramento Kings fan -- Hasan Minhaj! We also had our very own Kevin Fippin jump on the podcast with us this week to talk with Minhaj about his early life growing up in the Sacramento area, and his rise to becoming the most famous and outspoken celebrity Kings fan going right now.
It was a fun show, and we wanted to present Minhaj with a little token of our appreciation for spending his Saturday with us, so we had Jerry Reynolds provide alternate commentary on his 2019 NBA All-Star Celebrity Game performance. You can watch that footage below, and you can hear his live reaction to watching it over Zoom with Jerry at the 30:50 mark of the podcast.
