Kings’ Sabonis agrees to 5-year/$217 million contract extension
Yeah, I don’t know, this year’s season, the turning point, the, the progression and, you know, I think what you’ve seen in this franchise, you know, the time you’ve gotten to where you are now. Um, it’s been an amazing journey, you know, since it started, putting it back on the map and everybody watching and learning more about Sacramento, the Kings, the fans, the city, you know, that’s, that’s the most exciting part about it. Thomas, how soon do you think you will have surgery or recovery on your finger and if so, if I have an appointment after this, go check it out and see what the next steps are, stay healthy. And then for you, I know the off season everyone was together last off season fired you up for the season you had. Are you expecting the same this offseason? Of course, of course, there are *** times in the months and summers and we can do it, you know, but it depends on the guys’ plans and who’s here and what’s not. But it will definitely be a *** target again. Once you look back on this series. Obviously, you went at seven, and sometimes that was a bit of a challenge for you. Yes, how did you manage to make it work in the past day? Think about that and how you approach things this offseason. Yeah, yeah, like I said, it’s great that we did it, but it was all things at once because we knew there were so many opportunities to put it off or finish it, and it definitely hurt. But there’s a lot you can learn from the *** series, you know, and we’re going to be working on *** a lot this summer. How excited are you about the future with another or full season under your belt and the center that you have, what have you been able to accomplish this year, and how excited is that for next year? It’s really exciting, as the year goes on, we’ve gotten better and we’ve learned more from each other about what players like and don’t like. So to start the year knowing everything already, it’s really helpful to add things in the summer, and the coaching staff knows your tendencies, we know them, you know, it’s definitely helpful, you know, especially as the summer comes apart, when you look back at this series, So, what are some things you want to work on in the offseason that you know about the game? Obviously, um, my shooting, you know, confidence to go out, shoot that shot, you know, um, if they, um, respected my shot more, you know, we probably would have passed. What we’ve done all season is, you know, instead of playing big, we’ll play like I’ve been in the season. It would have helped us a lot to develop chemistry with our shooters in situations where teams would play us or try to take the *** and B away from us, you know, we have to have an option ready and then, um, obviously, the defense works on that, you know. , and getting in shape, you know, can sustain. I feel like we’ve grown a *** lot during this playoff run and, um, with our defense, if we can keep that going for the year, it’s going to help us *** a lot. Toma is going to get this out of the way quickly. Draymond Green made comments after the game saying you don’t shake hands. was over. Do you hear those comments? Do you care about those comments or want to respond to those comments? Yeah, I mean, I don’t know, you know, after the game, you know, all of them, I mean, I don’t even know how to respond, and after that, your relationship year with Keegan Murray was at least something that I, I *** paid more attention to. How proud you are of his growth, his growth and how much you can see him go. Oh, he was amazing, you know, even as the streak went on, you know, he got his confidence back and he wasn’t just shooting threes, you know, he was dribbling, getting into traffic, you know, shooting floaters up the middle shots, you know, these tough shots. All he didn’t really do all year. So one thing you can see and expect next year is, you know, he has to be more active on the ball. So, how about that future that opens up a lot of things for us? Think this is your NBA home? Oh, yes. You know, it’s been ***, it’s been a wonderful time here. You know, I’ve loved everything since trading here. As you know, what we have achieved so far is amazing. The city, the fans. Um, it’s all over the summer and you know what the results are going to be. Um, when you think about what you’ve been able to achieve this season, you know, you know, usually in the summer for you, playing abroad and playing FEBA. Yes, considering whether your hand needs surgery or not, how do you look at the summer, if you are, if you can play, you can do all kinds of things. Will this be a relaxing summer for you? Will it be a busy schedule? Oh, it’s never a *** relaxing summer. Hmmmmm, I can’t wait to get back to the gym forever, you know, and, um, start working out and preparing. So it depends on how this meeting goes, you know, with my hand, whether or not to do surgery, maybe they don’t do surgery, but you need to rest or you need to do surgery. So, um, it all depends on that, and then I can do my projects because the cast has many, many weeks of rehab waiting. So, you know, I, I, I *** will know more in two weeks, and for you. How do you raise your voice? Oh, and you’ll want to ask in the off-season, perhaps in the direction of team personnel. Those kinds of things are just one of the faces of this franchise. Um, you know, um and West have been good with me, since I’ve been here, asking my opinion on things about the coaching staff, the players, you know. So, um, I don’t think it’s going to change much, you know, and, if they want my opinion, I’ll be open. Yes, that’s it, where did you see and grow deer this year? Also, what do you think his ceiling will be, as he continues, he seems to be on this trajectory. Um, obviously everybody knows, um, in the fourth quarter, he’s done an amazing job this year, you know, one of the best, um, coming out with his consistency and playing every game at that high level. I think that’s the most, the most growth that I’ve seen, you know, him leading the team, you know, inside, inside, in the locker room, a lot of people don’t see that. So, he is ready to fill those shoes and take ownership. Wow, that was amazing to watch. Thanks. Thanks.
