Someone more inclined can post the links, but after the Clipper game, Bogdan briefly and measuredly showed his frustration about the slow starts. He talks about effort and coming out hard, but gets into specifics saying that the Kings video work needs to improve. He appears to be focused on the team and systemic issues at the start. Perhaps this is a one off, but Bogdan talking here was interesting because: he seemed to be in a measured mode of “I’ve had enough of this nonsense so I’m gonna say something to try to effect change”; unlike most of the kids, Bogdan has received pro game prep; Bogdan isn’t old or jaded enough to yet say “whatever man, it’s Sacramento” Aaron Bruski, who I know a large segment will disqualify on several grounds, tweeted that Bogdan was calling out obvious team issues that should be apparent to most of the local media. He points out that most of those folks are both refusing to cover the story and giving the problems false favorable media coverage regarding their benefits to the team. He implied this concerns couple of players getting a different set of rules. I don’t know what Bogdan was pissed about or trying to say. But this concerns the culture word the team likes to throw around. If the young players are miserable about bad prep to the point that their oldest and most confident kid goes to the press, either things change for the better or kids shrug and say “This is Sacramento. Whatever I guess.” That’s the malaise that’s covered this team for a decade. Also, if Bruski isn’t just throwing rocks, the local media is culpable here. In at least half the markets in the NBA, someone has the guts to write what’s really going on and the players don’t have to publicly complain. 5-7 years aside, it’s just always infuriating for players to play here. This looks like more of the same. This is why players tend to struggle here. It seems like we’d be better off if the media, Bruski included because his tweet was mega cryptic, would say what is going on.
