Apropos of nothing, here's roughly 14 seconds of Sacramento Kings mascot Slamson the Lion stroking DeMarcus Cousins' sneaker during an official review at the end of the first quarter while Kings announcers Grant Napear and Jerry Reynolds discuss the state of American men's tennis:

This has been roughly 14 seconds of Sacramento Kings mascot Slamson the Lion stroking DeMarcus Cousins' sneaker during an official review at the end of the first quarter while Kings announcers Grant Napear and Jerry Reynolds discuss the state of American men's tennis. Thank you.

Amazingly, this might not have been the weirdest thing to happen in Tuesday's Kings vs. Portland Trail Blazers game, considering the contest also included the bottom-feeding Kings coming back from an 11-point deficit against one of the best teams in the West, noted shot-missing enthusiast Rudy Gay making 19 of the 25 shots he attempted (10 for 16 from the floor, 9 for 9 from the line), the Blazers' league-best offense scoring just 13 third-quarter points against the Kings' 29th-ranked defensive unit, the two teams combining for 89 points in the fourth quarter and the Kings pulling out a 123-119 win. Then again, it might have been.

(In the interest of full disclosure, the tennis talk stemmed from Napear having interviewed Pete Sampras on his radio show on Tuesday. #TheMoreYouKnow)
