07:19 AM ET 08.30 | Surprise! While I was finishing an hour-long interview with new Kings coach Michael Malone in his office at the Sacramento Kings practice facility, there was a knock on the door. Who walks in? Kings GM Pete D'Alessandro, accompanied by a grinning Vlade Divac. The former Kings center -- whose No.21 jersey hangs from the rafters inside Sleep Train Arena -- was coy about the purpose for his visit and said he planned to remain in Sacramento very briefly. When I asked if he would be joining the new regime as an international scout or in some other capacity, he just laughed. Currently, the Kings icon lives in Belgrade, where he heads Serbia's Olympic effort. "The most important thing is that the Kings stayed," said Divac, who as usual, was wearing jeans and a short-sleeved T-shirt.

Teaching The Team To Flop, Bro?

Fond memories of Divac running into Magic's arms after a nice play looking like "Did I do good"?

And Magic responding:

"Yes Vlade; you did good.....but not THAT good. Now let go of me".....

And why not? Since Lord Stern doesn't have the balls to make any rule changes for flopping.

I don't see a need for rules being changed regarding flopping. I think it's all overblown.

Wanna stop flopping? Then have officials do a better job of not rewarding floppers. He11....it ain't a flopper's fault that he can fool an official....it's the official's fault. Maybe the NBA should fine the officials every time they call a foul in favor of a flop!

As far a I'm concerned, jump-shooters who kick out a leg to draw contact with a defender are much more of an issue than floppers.
