Survivor: Sacramento

The first cuts of training camp are expected to come either today or tomorrow (after the first preason game - the tension is palpable).

Thus, we're inspired to a game of Survivor: Sacramento. There's 20 in camp, and recent accounts have said the team will keep 13. That's the assumption, at least, going in.

Here's our projected order of the camp cuts:

Eric Sandrin, Dan Langhi, Ricky Paulding, Anwar Ferguson, Erik Daniels, Luis Flores, Luke Schenscher.

We see two roster spots up for grabs - the top 10 are pretty much unquestioned. Jamal Sampson (repeatedly listed as a forward by the Bee, but would be only the second 7-footer on the roster) seems to be a slam dunk - there's a dearth of height on this squad. Ronnie Price, by virtue of signing a guaranteed contract months ago, should be there too, despite Flores' best efforts.

Bringing Schenscher to camp could be taken two ways - they needed an extra big man when Lonnie Jones didn't show up, or they pounched on a cast-off with potential. We're thinking the latter.

Daniels is an interesting case - he was on the team last season, even playing a few times. But to say this team has a glut of talented forwards is an understatement. There's simply little to no room for Daniels.

We wouldn't be shocked to see Luke Dynamite, Flores or ED on the roster come the end of October. But we would be shocked to see Price or Sampson cut.

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.
