Kings Pulse: A casual 49 point loss, the 49ers draft pick, and movies w/ Greg Wissinger

Greg Wissinger joins an off-the-rails show after the Kings' worst loss of the season.

The Sacramento Kings' 49-point loss to the Utah Jazz on Wednesday night led an off-the-rails (and tipsy) Kings Pulse podcast as our friend Greg Wissinger joined the show. We touched on the massive loss, but once it became clear that we had nothing but doom and gloom to talk about, we started discussing anything but the Kings.

We discussed the recently signed new contracts for Chimezie Metu and Damian Jones, their fit with the rebuild moving forward, and how their likely non-guaranteed contracts make these no-risk deals. We touched on what we'd be willing to pay Mo Harkless in Free Agency this summer, lamented that Jahmi'us Ramsey only got five minutes of playing time in a massive blow-out, and discussed Tyrese Haliburton's play without De'Aaron Fox and his ceiling going forward.

Once we ran out of constructive Kings talk, we bounced around a bunch of topics, including:

  • Our favorite alcohols
  • The upcoming NFL Draft and why we're praying that the San Francisco 49ers don't draft Mac Jones
  • Some 2021 NBA Draft discussion, as Brenden realized he's the only Franz Wagner superfan of The Kings Herald staff
  • Why is California weather so weird? - and why would we think California weather is weird when we have a guest from Colorado on the pod?
  • An extended discussion of our favorite "Classic" movies, which Brenden apparently considers to mean 80's and 90's movies.

Brenden is on a quest to catch up on all the famous movies he's missed - what are your favorite classic and/or modern movies? Let us know in the comments!

The Kings Pulse podcast is available on all major listening platforms.

Definitely need this podcast episode after last night’s game.

Settling in to listen now. Excited to hear that Greg is on it.

It’s good to have this sort of pressure release valve for subsequent 49-point losses.

If you aren’t sure whether or not I’m being ironic, in full candor, I don’t know, either.

If you need a release valve, my I recommend look at the pinned tweet on @chimeziegoated . I promise it’s a good read

Quick, off-the-top-of-my-head-not-too-thought-out-answers:

One favorite classic movie:

Roman Holiday

One favorite modern movie:

Portrait Of A Lady On Fire

Oh wait…80’s-90’s is what you meant by classic?

Hmmm…maybe Valley Girl or The Last American Virgin.

Wait, are you the guy who punched a squirrel?

A poor, innocent squirrel who had a family and mortgage to pay off?

Seriously though–sorry for the snake gif. If it really is triggering I hope the mods will delete it.

I literally can’t help but jump every single time I see this. I knew what was coming but still could not prepare myself

…Two birds with one stone:

Tom Hanks and 80’s movies: Bachelor Party.
