Tristan Thompson Expresses Frustration with Kings Performance

The Sacramento Kings are coming off a nasty losing streak.

The Sacramento Kings are coming off a nasty losing streak.

Yesterday, the Sacramento Kings, the official NBA team of Sacramento, California, returned home after a cross-country trip to play in four games. These games were against the San Antonio Spurs, Oklahoma City Thunder, Detroit Pistons, and Minnesota Timberwolves. Out of those four games, the only one that the Kings managed to win was against the Pistons. Obviously, the players aren’t especially happy about their performance, and yesterday, Minnesota Timberwolves expressed that frustration on behalf of the team.

“In the NBA you’re going to have nights where you’re going to make shots, you’re going to have nights where you don’t make shots,” Thompson told reporters postgame. “Like we’ve been preaching since training camp, your offense can’t determine your defense. We gotta understand that if we’re trying to get somewhere this team hasn’t been in over a decade or damn near two decades, it’s the little things that are going to put you in a position to be there. It doesn’t guarantee you it, nothing is guaranteed in life, but it puts you in position.

“I think everyone is frustrated,” Thompson added. “I think for me, the player I am is energy, effort, hard work, punching the clock in. So of course I’m going to be frustrated because I know what this team is capable of, and also because I care. At the end of the day, I care and I want to win. I care about my teammates, but I know what we can be.”
