What Do You Know??? Shaqtus
What the hell happened? :whoknows:Darius Songaila has fit in swimmingly since Geoff Petrie robbed Boston of the Lithuanian forward during the offseason. Over the weekend, several of the Kings realized that in six months with Sacramento, Songaila has lived more like a veteran than a kid in his first pro campaign. So, per the suggestion of vets Mike Bibby, Tony Massenburg, and Anthony Peeler, the team treated Darius to a bit of good-natured rookie initiation. And while they were at it, their plans included birthday-boy CWebb, who turned 31 on Monday.
At the conclusion of practice, a chair was placed at center court where Webber was instructed to sit with his back to the locker room. What happened next was perhaps the most hilarious stunt pulled in recent Kings history. Decked in a pair of snug black spandex that made tighty-whities look fashionable, Songaila was given a birthday cake and led in a choke chain by Tony Massenburg towards an unsuspecting Webber. Once music was played, Songaila sashayed in front of CWebb with the cake, holding it out while dancing a little jig. Webber jumped out of his chair howling and teammates witnessing the caper laughed uncontrollably. With tears of hilarity, Doug Christie ran from the scene shouting, “I love this team, I love this team!” Two thumbs up to Songaila for being a good sport.
Team-building moments like these are more common than not in Sacramento, giving the Kings cohesiveness other teams never acquire. See ya next time!
