Someone Get Jameel Pugh a Roster Spot!

Absolutely epic story on Jameel Pugh in the Bee today. Can you beat this lead on a sports feature? Jimmy Spencer writes:

Without even setting foot in the gym, Jameel Pugh is reminded how far behind he is from his workout buddies.

The evidence is in the parking lot.

Alongside Bobby Jackson's Aston Martin and Jerome James' Hummer sits what Pugh calls his "Maroon Escalade" - a beat-up '94 Ford Explorer with more than 200,000 miles on the odometer."

There's no better way to compare modern athletes and their professional success than by looking at their transportation. Spencer knows this, because he's roughly half the age of the average Bee sportswriter. Do you think Marcos Breton is coming up with that lead? Highly unlikely.

More info on the team's whips please! What did Francisco Garcia go out and get? Is Kevin Martin still rolling around at very high speeds? Does Brad Miller's truck have a gun rack on the back? We need to know this stuff! It's far more interesting than anything else going on in Sacramento right now.

Also, getting back to the story, it's good to see Pugh is in good spirits about everything. Can we get an NBDL team around here? Stockton, maybe? Vallejo? There's enough basketball nuts in the greater Sacramento metropolitan area that have been priced out by the Kings that would line up for a chance to see raw talent play for their hoops careers.

The Sacramento Kings are a tough act to follow, literally.

SKB does the dirty work so you can forget about the blood, sweat and tears.

Oh, you'll still need the tears in April, though.
