Return of The King: The Kings select Reggie Theus as the new head coach. Surprising even him. Nice to have a fallback when Hollywood stops calling. Typically, reactions are mixed.

As a Kings fan I am both surprised and not surprised by this. Reggie has always been a fan favorite in Sacramento. He was the toast of the town back in the day. There is a strong Maloof connection here that makes me nervous. Indiana was apparently showing interest in Reggie and I hope that didn't cause the Kings to jump the gun before getting Stan Van Gundy'd again.

As a graduate of NMSU, I can only wish Theus the best of luck in his first NBA coaching experience. That being said, I am incredibly bitter that Theus is leaving NMSU to coach the Kings. I am a life-long Warrior fan, so hating the Kings is just something I do. As the Maloof family has plucked away the coach who has made my alma mater matter again on the national stage, my contempt for them is that much more pronounced. I think it was a good hire for them, but I still hate them for doing it.
