Kings Pulse Podcast: Breaking Down the Bubble Schedule

Brenden and Richard break down the newly released Orlando schedule.

Editor's Note: We're thrilled to announce that The Kings Herald and the Kings Pulse podcast are collaborating going forward. Kings Pulse joins The Jester's Court in our podcast family, as part of what many are calling a new media empire. 

We are stoked to be collaborating Kings Pulse with The Kings Herald! Kings Pulse is an in-depth podcast that airs 2-3 times a week that focuses on analyzing the games and decisions of the Sacramento Kings franchise and its players. It is hosted by Brenden Nunes and Richard Ivanowski, who will be having more of the Kings Herald writers on the podcast in the future to share some of their ideas and thoughts. We also would love to interact with some of the listeners from here to hear their opinions on the pod. You can reach out to us on Twitter @Kings_Pulse if you are interested in coming onto the show to share your thoughts and have your voice be heard during our 916th man segment.

In this episode, we dove into the newly released 8-game bubble schedule for the Sacramento Kings. Rich explained how it seems that the Kings were dealt an unfair hand in regards to rest over this stretch of games, we predicted the win-loss record over those games, identify the most crucial matchups, and also peek at the schedule of the competitors. 

Again, Kings Pulse is glad to be apart of the Kings Herald family and any episode ideas from listeners would be greatly appreciated. We have primarily been doing draft profiles for the 2020 NBA Draft class recently, and those will be on the way more in the near future. Be sure to subscribe to the show wherever you get your podcasts to hear future episodes as they go live!

Also, regarding the new media empire, I think a pod called like “The Royal Roundtable” would be cool. Basically, just a weekly pod with all/more writers and a moderator discussing the last week’s events. Personally, I think drinks should/could be involved and follow the Zoom video happy hour format.

I know people don’t really “listen to the RORDOG” but I think this would be really popular. It could be similar to The Ringer’s NBA desktop; focused on reactions to this week’s kings-centric events. Take this week for example. We have Jabari playing tennis, The Ringer ignoring the Kings, Bagley: snubbed or appropriately ranked?, GG getting the play-by-play duties. I don’t want to take away from Brad’s pod or the kings pulse. I just think there’s room for another pod with a bigger, revolving cast of writers discussing various NBA/Kings-related events.
 
Also, I think the pods need a pre-pod article to drum up interest. Not to be a dick, but basically every pod-post garners like 3 comments. I think that’s because the article is posted after the pod. The Chainmail responses should kinda show you that interactions are maximized when it’s a two-step process.
 
Anyhoo, I think there’s a market for a much more free flowing conversation that feels like the comments section. I think structured pods are cool, but I also like pods that feel like a bunch of people just having a conversation like they’re all sitting on a couch bullshitting.

I’m going to start a pod to encourage other people to start pods called RORDOG’s Pod Prod.

The big swing games are the Magic, Pels (2x) and I guess the Spurs. Realistically, we can end up anywhere from 2-6 to 6-2. I think 5-3 gets us in as a nine-seed. Here’s a pretty reasonable guess at what that may look like:
 
Spurs –W (they don’t have LMA, and we’re the better team. Lose this, and we’re basically cooked)
Magic – W (This is basically even. If we can win these first two games and just one of the Pels games, I’ll feel very good about our chances.)
Mavs –L (Let’s not talk about this one)
Pelicans — W (We need to split with the Pelicans. The Pel’s early schedule is tougher than their late schedule, so if we can knock them down early, this is my perferred win)
Nets — W (will they even be able to field a team? Knowing us, we’ll find a way to blow this one.)
Rockets – L (This game is likely to matter for them, and they’re flat-out better)
Pelicans – L (again, we need to split with them)
Lakers – W (This seems like a sneaky-easy win. LA will likely have nothing to play for, and they may very well want us to win this game to avoid Portland/NO.

I hope five wins is enough to get us in cause I think your analysis is good.
