KSR is going to do its best to follow the new breed of UK players in the NBA as much as possible during the season. Along those lines, we are having to look for Blogs that cover the various NBA teams and find those with as much “KSR-like” qualities as possible along the way. For the Sacramento Kings, we have found Purple Pajundrum, a poorly named, but thorough Kings site that has this roundup on the Kings open practice and scrimmage, highlighted by a recap of Demarcus Cousins and Joe Crawford’s performance. Basically Cousins is dominating and Joe Crawford is working hard to get a roster spot. For Cousins, he is often called the “best player on the floor” and a future star, both of which we know. But we also learn that Joe C is one of 7 players going for 1-2 roster spots and that he is considered at the head of that pack for his work effort and ability to score in traffic.
The Kings and Rockets will join the Wizards as my teams this year, but I cant help but tell you that I am really pulling for Joe Crawford. He has been moving towards this goal for sometime and making the Kings out of Training Camp would be a great accomplishment for one of the more underrated UK guys in recent years. Get em Joe C….
