Former Kings star Vlade Divac will be featured in Once Brothers as part of ESPN's 30 for 30 series. The documentary will be 90 minutes and centers on the friendship between Divac and Drazen Petrovic and how it dissolved before amid a civil war in Yugoslavia between Divac's Serbia and Petrovic's Croatia.
Both played on the Yugoslavian National Team and were pioneers for players from overseas coming to the NBA and having success.
Petrovic died in a car accident in 1993.
"To build a friendship takes years, but to destroy it, takes one second," Divac said in a statement. "...I always thought that the day would come when Drazen and I would sit down and talk, but that day never came."
The documentary will air on ESPN on Oct. 12.
Now for the NBA lockout of 2011 watch.
Here's the latest statement from the league and players' union about today's meeting.
"Today the NBPA and the NBA held another bargaining meeting that was both cordial and constructive. We all agreed to continue the dialogue, and during the three-hour meeting, a number of issues were identified that will be addressed in smaller groups leading up to the next bargaining meeting."
From the Kings perspective if what a "max" contract is worth is lowered, that would put them in great position to land a big free agent next summer.
Unlike this summer, I don't expect the Kings to simply sit on their cap space. An improved Kings team will be more attractive to a free agent in 2011.
