Every now and then there are articles we want to highlight and bring to your attention, but that we don’t have time to work into a larger article or commentary. Today is one of those days, so here are two articles we think you should take a minute to read.

From Andscape’s Marc Spears:
Mike Brown has the Sacramento Kings dreaming bigger than just the playoffs

“He just demands greatness,” Fox said. “He demands everything to be to the T. If there is a little slippage in a game or practice, he is going to say something. Having that kind of accountability has been great for us … He’s a military guy, too. But he has that joy and uplifts everybody. If he has to run to do something or show someone how to do a boxout, he will jump in the drill and do it. Having someone who is very strict and strategic but could come in and do it with a smile is great and someone everyone wants in a coach.”

From Sports Illustrated’s Chris Herring:
Kings Coach Mike Brown Explains Sacramento’s Success

Mike Brown: They have a belief that is uncanny for a group that has never played together before, nor have a lot of these guys had key roles on playoff teams as individuals in big situations. It’s extraordinary, and I don’t quite know how we do it. That belief is something we’ve talked about trying to instill since Day 1. Somehow it’s in them, and they’re competing because they believe.
There’s a great segment in there with Brown discussing when the team uses zone, and why they don’t use it more.
Overall, both articles are great interviews with Mike Brown, both are worth your time, and there’s surprisingly minimal overlap in content between the two.

Thank God (whichever god that may be) the Kings hired Mike Brown. Thank a god. One, some or all of the Gods.

shoot, we could have had Mark Jackson- belief there would have been of a different kind. or one of the young inexperienced guys. This team was more ready and more ready for a vet coach than I realized.

just heard that Monte offered 2 second round picks to Utah for Vanderbilt but that got nixed when JV went to the LAL where he will languish. He is the Luka killer.

I hope Mike Brown will soon be smiling with that backdrop as it means we are winning rather than losing.

He had that explosive put-back dunk last night, his expression never changed, and as soon as he hit the ground, he was hustling back on defense.
