Biscuit,

In answer to your question in the previous game thread. I use my DVR, via Direct TV, to record the game and then pause the game until Geroud’s radio broadcast “catches up” to the actual play on the floor. That is, Geroud’s broadcast is delayed about a minute and one half behind the actual floor play.

I listen to his broadcast via Sirius XM, Channel 905, if you happen to subscribe to Sirius. And I turn the audio down on the Kings tv broadcast crew. Not for the whole game, but I do enjoy the play call by Geroud.

Tonite Gerry’s game call is about three minutes behind the floor play, it may be different for you if you tune in locally in Sacto.

At the game tonight ($35 for lower bowl, thank God nobody wants to see the Kings).

Awesome to get to see the whole new squad live for the first time in person. Domantas is for real, y’all. That PnR game with Fox and Davion is *chef’s kiss*. Sabonis may have been what they, and this team, needed to unlock it’s potential. Bigs that can handle and pass like him are at a premium and having him as a pillar of playmaking in the center of the offense is a joy to behold.

Also….Davion is QUICK! Totally different seeing him in real life. Fox and him look great running in transition. Now to see some of the Big Ragu!!

That pass from Davion to Mo for 3 was incredible! I don’t think the TV shot captured it well, but Davion caught it with one hand and passed it to Mo in 1 motion! Wow!!!

He shot the 3 a bit under Nate Bjorkgren last season and Rick Carlisle this year, but he’s about 32%. It’s a work in progress, I would argue.

I like the Sabonis pick up, think we traded our best player for him (I’m over it). The thing that I’m most interested in for the rest of the season is watching Davion Mitchell’s growth. I know I’m higher on him than most here but so be it. The other thing I’m interested in is seeing where we end up in the draft. I don’t believe we will make the play in….at least I hope we don’t

I think Davion will be up at 4 AM in a gym putting up shots until noon this summer before LV Summer League. I am with you, I want to watch him develop. Someone mentioned it, he needs to talk to his shoe sponsor and get some kicks that grip. He has such hard stops to shed a defender but he ends up sliding on more than a couple each game.
