Tyrese Haliburton was blindsided and hurt to be traded by the Kings in February.

Now with the Pacers, he doesn’t sound completely over it.

Sean Cunningham of FOX40:

Cunningham:

Sacramento loved you, man. You knew that. You had that connection. Is it still there?

Haliburton:

Oh, for sure. With the fans, forever. That’s not a question. I hope people never, ever think that – my feeling towards the organization and the fans are completely different.

It doesn’t take much deduction to see how Haliburton feels toward the organization.

Haliburton is in a better situation now. Indiana could be on the verge of becoming one of the NBA’s more-interesting up-and-coming teams. The 22-year-old Haliburton is a centerpiece of Indiana’s new era.

The Kings… are still doing Kings things.

Really, it’s incredible Haliburton once so badly wanted to stay in Sacramento – which explains the strong mutual connection between him and the fans.
