Mike Malone Bringing New Attitude to Kings
In two seasons in the NBA, Isaiah Thomas had never looked so happy to be exhausted. He had participated in a summer league practice and couldn’t believe the level of intensity.
For coach Michael Malone, it wasn’t anything special.
“I think they know it will be a lot different,” Malone said. “That’s not a knock on anybody. That’s just the approach moving forward.”
“I know for Ben and Ray, without a doubt,” Malone said. “And for Marcus and Isaiah, who practiced with us a couple of times, and Jason and Jimmer, who also went to the gym with our staff, they know that it’s a different staff and we’re going to be a work team.”
