Jerry Reynolds answers your questions about life, basketball, and the Sacramento Kings

Jerry Reynolds tells the "Holy Moley Jimbob Boley" origin story, among other things, and it's perfect.

The Kings Herald Show is back with a bonus special Ask Jerry Anything episode of the podcast. The real NBA offseason is finally here, and with no games, draft, or free agency to discuss, we opened up the podcast to members of the online Kings community so they could ask Jerry Reynolds whatever their heart desires.

Hear Jerry Reynolds tell the story behind the catchphrase "Holy Moley Jimbob Boley", if cereal is a soup, what makes a good color commentator, his relationship with Ricky Berry, latest thoughts on a potential Ben Simmons trade, if "Hoosiers" did a good job depicting small-town Indiana in the 1950s, if the Kings ever asked him to paint a rosier picture of the franchise than the roster and play dictated, and a whole lot more. This was a fun one.

You can find The Kings Herald Show wherever you listen to podcasts, but if we're missing a platform of your choosing, leave us a note in the comments and we'll get to work. If you can subscribe, rate, and review the podcast on any and all platforms, that would be greatly appreciated, too. It's the easiest way you can support the show!

In addition to our bi-weekly podcast with Jerry Reynolds, we also record a Patreon exclusive Q+A once a month where Patrons at any level can Ask Jerry Anything. You can listen to our Patreon exclusive Q+A for August right here.

You can submit questions for Jerry on Patreon, or write your questions in the comments below this post! Or you can just yell questions to Tony or Will on Twitter.

I loved the shout outs to you KLam, and they were well deserved, you are a touchstone for the TKH community.

I cant emphasize enough how much I enjoy Jerry Reynolds unplugged. He is just an absolute treat with his fountain of knowledge and clever sense of humor.

Big tip of that hat as well to Will, he is an excellent straight man to the color commentary of Jerry and guests, and definitely the straw that stirs the drink.

Gazpacho is a soup, Will!

And like revenge, it’s best served cold.

Like cereal.

Tony, come out to California on your adventures around the world!

If you come to LA, I’ll not take you to Buffalo Wild Wings.

Where’s Tyreke?

Maybe he’s probably in his hyperbaric chamber.

What a marvelous, memorable episode.

I should’ve followed Brenden’s lead and made myself a mojito while listening. I’ve never really been a podcast person, and of course didn’t grow up listening to the radio (except for some good old Gary Gerould games), but it’s a special thing to just hear people talk while you’re doing something else. I’m blurring naked people as per my job and it can get pretty boring so it’s really nice to hear about your bucket lists and million dollar answers while I’m hiding boobs and balls.

All three of you offer so much to the podcast and balance each other out. You’ve developed chemistry and work really well together as a team. Just imagine how good you’ll all be with even more time together.

Jerry is, as Rob says, a national treasure. Jerry is the greatest thing associated with the Kings as far as my fandom is concerned.

And Will and Tony (and all of the TKH folks), I hope you realize that you guys and gals are going to also carve out special places in Kings fans hearts as time passes. In 30 years, when the Kings finally make the playoffs, you’ll be living legends just like Jerry, and all of the current fans will point you out to their kids/grandkids and say “These are the people who built The Kings Herald. They made something special and lasting.”

I’ll always remember when this site first launched in April of 2020 and we crashed the servers twice in one day. Despite going live in the beginning of a pandemic with no sports to watch, 95% of us left “the site that shall not be named” and waited a month for the new site to launch because we just couldn’t leave the community. No exaggeration, this whole KH crew has been a big part of my life the last eight years. Even through all the losing seasons and hard times of real life, this community finds ways to find humor and put a smile on my face (and often times makes me literally laugh out loud). It really is a special community that I’m glad I found and wouldn’t trade it for any other. 🙂

And I truly can not wait to see how this site reacts on that day when we finally make the postseason……or dare I say it…..win a championship. 🙂

Really, truly appreciate this comment and all others in this thread that share the sentiment. We’re still a young podcast in comparison to the heavy hitters in the market, but the response from everyone here has made this thing far more successful than I personally had even hoped for.

Also, Jerry and Tony have made this podcast an absolute dream to host and they deserve their flowers at every single opportunity…

I could honestly write a novella about all of the things that I enjoyed about this episode, but I’ll spare everyone, and simply say: It was perfect. Every second was a joy.

If I’m in Monte’s chair Haliburton is the one who is untouchable. He’s proven in the NBA, unlike Mitchell, and he’s cheap, unlike Fox.

Love the segments with with Jerry and this format was a nice surprise. I listen to these while on my morning walks and find my self laughing out loud at times thanks to Jerry. His honesty without being caustic and mean is refreshing.
