How can we say enough about the story of 2009…Omri Casspi? The “King of Israel” is story #3 of the decade. So, first we were excited that Casspi got drafted into the NBA. But do you know how much nachas we feel because Casspi is good. Instead of just simply telling you about the fact that he has moved into the Kings starting lineup or how he is averaging in double figures or how he is going to clearly receive votes for Rookie of the Year we have decided to just include a bunch of articles and videos (below) about the new King in the NBA. I cannot tell you how many articles I receive about Casspi about how good he has been. Kings games are shown all over Israel (even the embarrassing come back against my Bulls). He also makes Sportscenter with Tyreke Evans on a weekly basis.  Casspi arriving in the NBA, simply put, has been Awesome.

Here are some Casspi stories throughout his first year in the league:
