Kings Basketball Academy Newsletter 2013-2014 Season!!!
mgg

Dear Kings Players and Parents,


It is with great excitement to announce that I have been offered and will take a Player Development Coaching position with the Memphis Grizzlies starting January 6th of the new year.  This is an amazing opportunity to move forward with my career at the highest level and I just could not turn this down.  Over the last seven plus years we have built a very respected program with family values and high level instruction.  We have grown so close and I can not express in words the impact you parents and players have had on me as a coach and more importantly as a person.  I would not be in the position I am now today without you guys supporting me, inspiring me, and trusting me with your boys. The success we have had as a program, the success I have had personally as a coach is owed to the fact that we have had the greatest parents and kids. I am forever grateful.


Although I am moving in a few weeks, I would like to take this time to make a few more announcements and give you guys an overview of where our Kings Program is headed in the near future.  My brother Matt will be taking full control of the program.  Included in my jealousy of his great looks and physique is also my jealousy of his endless energy, enthusiasm, and passion for our program.  I am 100 percent confident that not only is he going to maintain the reputation we have built, but I am very excited to see him take our program to even greater heights. To assist Matt with the daily basketball operations will still be “Momma” King...My Mom Linda has been running the show since 2006 and will continue to be the greatest team mom of all time.  She truly is the greatest. Also, Joe Abunassar and Malik Clark with their expertise and experience will continue to assist Matt with practices and games as well as program development the remainder of this year and beyond. 


Below is an outline of what our program will be executing going towards the new year.  Please take note of all announcements which will be effective January 1st. 


NEW TOURNAMENT JERSEYS


  • Our new tournament uniforms will be ordered and printed by our first tournament in January.  We will be receiving Nike Dri-Fit tops and bottoms with backpack and a long sleeve Dri-Fit Kings Basketball shooting shirt. Attached is a sneak peak of what our new uniforms will look like.


NEW PRACTICE REGIMENT


  • We will be having two separate practices every Tuesday and Thursday night.  Our newly forming 9u-12u Kings teams will practice from 6:00PM-7:20PM and our 13u-14u will practice from 7:20PM-8:50PM.  This benefits all players giving much more attention to details while keeping our patented intensity and energy.  


  • We will also be adding a Wednesday “Individual Skills Development and Conditioning Program” running from 5:30PM-7:00PM.  Drills will include shooting, ball-handling, footwork, Post-work among other skills with also plyometrics, core work, agility, and strength work outs.  All age groups included during time.


NEW PROGRAM MONTHLY FEE


  • We will be raising our Monthly fee to $105 effective January 1st.  The fee includes the new practice schedule and also the additional day a week of individual skill and conditioning work. As usual, DO NOT MISS PRACTICES and TAKE FULL ADVANTAGE OF OUR INDIVIDUAL WORK WEDNESDAYS


NEW TEAM STRUCTURE FOR 13U and 14U TEAMS


  • We will be creating a Kings “Black” and “White” teams for both the 13u and 14u division of our program.  Both teams will participate in tournaments (Could be same or Different locations) and have same jerseys.  We want to create the best environment to develop each player to full potential.  We are hoping to have each team contain 8-9 players MAX per tournament.  The 13-14 year old age group is vital for individual development and we feel that having two teams will maximize productivity and development.  

 

In closing, I am ready for Memphis working at the NBA level and making each and everyone of you proud to be associated with our program. I am also very excited about the conclusion of our 2013-2014 Kings Basketball Academy Season.  We have some big tournaments and positive changes that I know will make our program even better.  I know we will all execute our plan to keep building up our program.  We started this program to properly prepare the youth of the Ventura County and Southern California for the next level.  Through trust, respect, discipline, loyalty, love, and fun our Kings culture and system will continue to develop and thrive.  We will continue to be the best program around. 


Thank you so much for all your support. If you have any questions or need some time to talk, please do not hesitate to call me or contact me the next two weeks before I leave. 


Love,

Adam

Kings 14u Win Open Gym Tournament

Congratulations to our Kings 14u/8th Grade Team for Winning Open Gym Christmas Challenge Tournament over the Weekend.

Congratulations to our Kings 13u and 14u teams for winning the ARC Christmas Classic Tournament Championships in exciting fashion.  It was an awesome weekend for our program and nice tune-up going into next weekend's tournament in Anaheim.

ARC Christmas Classic Tournament Recap!!
14u pic

Kigns 13u and 14u win ARC Christmas Championship!!!

Our 13s went 3-1 and avenged an earlier loss to CBC beating them in the championship 56-43.  I was unable to coach our championship game due to our 14s playing at the same exact time but Coach Matt and Coach Joe led us to victory.  With the help of 4 three each from Jack Abunassar and Anthony Frausto and the MVP performance of Bryce Kilkenny, our boys bounced back from a disappointing opening defeat.  From what I was told and watching the video, Bryce Kilkenny was a monster in the championship going for a 20-20 performance and dominating the bigs of CBC.  I am so proud of all the boys and excited for next weekend's tournament in Anaheim.

Tournament MVP: Bryce Kilkenny

Our 14s went a perfect 5-0 in the tournament beating team "Elite" which is also known as the CAVS in one of the more exciting games in Kings program history.  Both teams played extremely physical, fast, and superior talent.  The game resembled a high quality high school varsity game and the intensity in the gym was amazing.  The CAVS are a program rival to us as I played for them as well as my brother Matt.  And there is no sweeter victory then beating them especially in the fashion we did.

Tied at 50 with 20 seconds left we had the ball.  The CAVS trapped poing guard Kihei Clark which we knew they would do and talked about it in our last timeout before the possession.  This trap created a "broken play" where talent, fundamentals, and skills must take over.  As the clock winded down Austin Galuppo had the ball with 6 seconds left and crossed over penetrating the defense drawing Kihei's defender.  Austin made the correct play and kicked out to Kihei for a deep open three pointer which hit nothing but new breaking the net as time expired giving our boys the championship!!! It was a total team effort as everyone had impact in the game and the tournament.  Wes Slajchert carried us early as we struggled to score and struggled to get stops. Wes drove hard to the rack all night long getting to line making free throws and drives while guarding their talented point guard all of the second half.  Riley Battin carried us in the middle of the game dominating on drives and offensive rebounding opportunities and is an absolute nightmare matchup for any team around.  Then Kihei carried us home first driving and dropping a pass to Elijah Wolf to get our run started.  Then a huge step back baseline jumper and of course the finishing touches with his three pointer.  Austin was steady all game and probably the most impressive thing was how although he wasn't having the best of performances, he stayed with the game and maintained composure executing down the stretch.  Our energy off the bench was phenomenal as guys came in and out producing and playing so hard.  I was so proud of each of our boys. It was an amazing game.

Tournament MVP: Kihei Clark

Conejo Quakes Fall Extravaganza Tournament Recap...

Kings 14u Win Championship in JV Division of Conejo Quakes Fall Extravaganza!!!

 

Our 8th Grade/14u Team beat Chaminade JV, Thousand Oaks JV, and Agoura JV en route to their Second Championship in the JV Division this Fall.  After blowing our Chaminade JV, we battled with former Kings Head Coach and my best friend Kyle Kegley and his very physical and determined Thousand Oaks squad.  It was a very intense game with both teams making runs. Thousand Oaks executed beatifully with their multiple sets and chaning defenses multiple times giving our guys multiple looks on both ends.  It was a high qulaity high school game and not a typical AAU game where strategy, game management, and focus on both ends would win it out.  We ended up making a strong run in the second half with point guard Kihei Clark leading the charge.  Kihei was unstoppable in transition with pin point passes and timely pull up jumpers.  Austin Galuppo hit some huge threes in the second half and Riley Battin was a load down low.  We ended up winning by 7 points and was a big time experience for our guys. 

In the Championship game we faced a very good Agoura JV team who also ran solid sets and switched defenses.  After starting out the game dominating, Agoura went to a Box 1 on Riley face guarding him and not leaving his side.  Most players who are mentally weaker would have complained and stop playing.  Not Riley, Riley stayed focused and executed everything we asked him to do.  He stayed involved and did not force shots or plays.  His maturity and basketball IQ where a pleasure to watch and was a huge impact through out the game.  Austin Galuppo finally got loose in the second half hitting multiple threes which made Agoura once again switch to a triangle 2 defense.  The game was back and forth and Agoura built their biggest lead to 6 with only 4 minutes to go.  Our Kings fought back getting impact from Khari, Keaton, Luke, and Elijah who all produced in big moments. Elijah had a huge steal and finished off a pass from Kihei.  Keaton energy and defense was much needed.  Bobby finished off the game and executed our sets to perfection.  Khari really got our team going out of the half with his pull up game and drives. And Luke had the biggest basket of the game in the closing seconds.  With only 12 seconds left and down 1, Agoura made a huge mistake and went man to man to close the game.  We immediately went to our "Flat" set isolation for Kihei who beat his man off the dribble and dropped another great pass to Luke for the game winning lay-up!! It was a very exciting game with high intensity and a big time learning experience for our guys.  

This tournament really gave our guys a high school experience and what a real high school game will be about.  High School teams are prepared, are dicipline, and very physical.  I was very proud of our guys on not only the championship but our maturity and composure throughout.  

Our 12s/13s, 13u Come Up Short in The Finals...In Overtime and by 2 points. Our 14u lose in Semi-Finals of Soph/Frosh Divsion

I was very proud our 12s/13s group and our 13s who both made the championship games in their respected divisions.  Both combined to go 6-2 in the tournament beating quality teams and playing up.  I was especially proud of our 12s/13s group and Head Coach Matt Mazarei is really doing a great job with them.  They have showed vast improvement in all areas of the game and it was fun watching this group play this weekend.  They lost in an overtime nail bitter and a couple calls here and bounce there we could have pulled it off.  As I always say, I despise 3 things in life...1. Lakers 2. Kobe and 3. Ventura County Refs. Our guard play from Hogan Zuckerman was big time all weekend and the twins of Jack and Sam Boyd always producing on high levels.  I was also very proud of our bench play from Aaron Li who had very productive minutes, Jacob Davis who shot the ball very well and is an amazing offensive rebounder, and Jonathan Gerwein who is showing improvement in all aspects of the game. We will need Varun Patro and Jack Zhao to be even more assertive for this group to keep improving.

Our 13s went 4-1 in the 14u Division losing in the Championship by 2 points.  We lost Clark Slajchert early in the day with an ankle injury and although guys stepped up to replace him, not having him definietely hurt us down the stretch.  Our play however was solid and our patented ball movement, dribble drive, and skill level was on display.  Bryce Howard was special all weekend long and his improvement from last year and also the year before when he became a King is evident.  Zachary Songco also had a very productive tournament has been playing well all Fall. Bryce Kilkenny had his best tournament of the Fall since his injury in the Summer.  Bryce was every where in the boards, ran the floor hard, played great defense and overall was great on both ends. 

Our 14s playing up in the competitive Soph/Frosh Division showed flashes of good basketball butthe same issues arise.  This group plays hard, plays smart, plays together, but we do struggle offensively to score.  We need more production in play making ability and breaking down defenders.  We need to play faster, stronger, and more physical.  I couldn't catch most of their action, but the action I did see I was very proud of our effort and the way we were playing.  We are all improving and come Winter Season we should be hitting our stride.

SGV Aloha Challenge Tournament Recap...14u WINS CHAMPIONSHIP!!
sgv

Congratualtions to our Kings 14u/JV Team for winning the Championship in the SGV Aloha Challenge over the weekend.  Our squad went 4-1 with wins over 5 on five, Southeast Warriors, Baseline to Baseline, and avenged an earlier loss to AVAC in the championship.  Our 14u team is really coming together with better chemistry, ball movement, and defense.  We played very well all tournament long and I was very proud of our effort.  Our 14s have a very good opportunity to be the best Kings team we have ever had.  If we continue to improve, execute, and play as hard as we are playing then this will be our best team in the last seven years.

Our 13u team went 3-1 in the competitive Elite Division with wins over SGV, Redondo Phoenix, and AVAC.  Our only loss came to Covina's Finest whom seemed to have a mix and match team made up of players from multiple teams with different jerseys. We led at the half and was playing very good basketball, but their overall team size and skill eventually won out at the end. Our 13s played very well and I am very proud of the way we played and represented our program.  Our 13s have a ton of respect from every opposing program, players, and fans that watch us play.  Makes me proud how appreciated we are by outsiders who watch us play.

Our 12u team went 2-2 on the Elite Division with two very tough losses to two very good programs in Jr. Hoops and Rockfish. Jr. Hoops eventually won the Tournament championship and we loss to them by 2 points in a very back and forth game.  We had a chance to tie at the end of the game, but our lack of experience cost us.  We lossed to Rockfish by 6 in another close one but their tall, very mature "6th grader" beat us down the stretch.  Our 12s went 2-0 on Sunday winning the Consolation Championship beating a very good OC Rain team by 17 which to me was the best game this group has ever played.  Our pressing "switch" Defense and our offensive ball movement was very evident and our 12s grew up.  In the second game we beat the GameTymers by two points.  We were down the whole game and were not playing well at all, but good teams find ways to win and we eventually did.  It was a great comeback being down by double digits and a great weekend for our 12u team.

Derryck Thornton Has Great Showing at 16u Team USA Try-outs
D.T.

For all wondering who's that guy working out with me after our practices every Tuesday and Thursday night, it is Freshman point guard from Sierra Canyon Derryck Thornton.  Derryck was one of 16 freshman in the country invited to a mini-camp for Team USA 16u Developmental Team that will compete this Summer.  

44 of the top players in the 2015 and 2016 graduate classes in the country were invited to the U.S. Olympic training facility in Colorado Springs, CO this past weekend and one time Kings player, Derryck, had a terrific weekend.  And although the final rosters will not be finalized until June, Derryck made a huge impression.  Many media outlets were impressed with Derryck's basketball IQ, true point guard ability, on-ball defense, and many scouts and coaches had Derryck as the best point guard at the camp regardless of year.  

"There wasn't anybody any better at the point guard spot during the mini-camp. The six-footer has very good quickness, is a pass first guy and is very aggressive attacking the paint off the dribble. Thornton is also very good on the defensive side of the ball."

-Eric Bossi (Rivals.com)

"The search for a successor to Tyus Jones is

underway. USA Basketball needs a newpoint

guard and for those in attendance this camp

has turned into a proving ground of sorts. If

the team was looking for one guard to

advance his game on the final day, then they

saw an impressive effort out of Derryck

Thornton (Simi Valley, Calif./Sierra Canyon). 


“I was nervous coming in,” Thornton said. “I

was too passive. I have to be more verbal

and play good defense.” Thornton

distinguished himself as a passer, playmaker

and reliable offensive player. He’s the type

of lead guard who could be the squad's pied

piper as others are likely to enjoy playing

with him. There are times when he over

dribbles, but this is a point guard who hasn’t

played a high school game and is hoping to

prove he belongs. Patience is the buzzword

with all the floor generals in attendance. On

Sunday, Thornton ramped up his play and

made a statement."

-Dave Telep (ESPN.com)

As soon as Derryck received the prestigious invite in August, Derryck and I have been working at 6:30AM on Tuesday/Thursday/Friday mornings and then coming back to Kings practice every Tuesday and Thursday night.  Hopefully, all the work pays off and come June, Derryck is one of the 12 members of Team USA.
