Sacramento Kings SG Ben McLemore Tweets He Was “First One in the Gym and the Last to Leave”

Ben McLemore

Stephen R. Sylvanie-USA TODAY Sports

When shooting guard Ben McLemore was initially drafted to the Sacramento Kings, it worried me at first that he was entering an environment that would not set him up for success. He seems like truly nice young man, and one who I happen to be rooting for. Well, it appears that McLemore is already setting himself up for success for hard work based on the tweet below.

McLemore’s “great day in the gym” is hopefully the first of many, and with the shooting guard’s help maybe the Kings can make some unexpected noise next season. In any case, will definitely keep an eye on McLemore’s development and if he can gel on the court with DeMarcus Cousins, then we could be looking at a potentially great offensive team. My only concern left? Well other than shaky management at the top of the Kings organization, no one on this roster really specializes in defense so it makes me wonder how they expect to stop other teams from scoring.

If McLemore can continue working hard and avoiding Cousins’ bad influence on the court then we could be looking at a future All Star. When your jump shot is compared to Ray Allen that is pretty good company, but McLemore still has a lot left to prove.

Rondo Perfectly Guesses Atlanta's Final Play

Say what you will about Rajon Rondo, but there's no way to deny that he's an incredibly smart basketball player. Last evening against the Atlanta Hawks, the Sacramento Kings were up by three points with 1.9 seconds left, and Atlanta had one final possession to tie things up. Rondo immediately recognized the play the Hawks had drawn up and directed DeMarcus Cousins to an empty space on the floor where the Hawks were planning to send a player to take a three. Rondo's smarts made the Hawks botch the play, and the Kings held serve for the win.

Watch Kings' Rondo Attempt To Trip Mavs' Williams

Last night's game between the Sacramento Kings and Dallas Mavericks was one of the most entertaining of the season. It was a back-and-forth contest that ended on a Deron Williams three-pointer as time expired in double-overtime. Unfortunately, Williams almost didn't get to take that shot as Rajon Rondo attempted to trip him from the bench earlier in the game which could have caused serious injury. Rondo should be suspended for his actions.
