Welcome to Sydney, Randle and Tyler

Welcome to Sydney, Randle and Tyler

The Sydney Kings officially unveiled their new star imports today, reigning NBL MVP Jerome Randle and former NBA player Jeremy Tyler looking great in the purple n gold.

 

Ahead of his first game as a King, against Illawarra tomorrow, Randle says he expects a hostile reception.

 

“I know it’s not going to be a good fan welcome for me but it is what it is. I’m a basketball player, I don’t listen to the fans – at all.”

 

Tyler – who played for the Golden State Warriors and New York Knicks in the NBA – says he wants to bring his distinctive fire to the group, and hope that it catches on with the rest of his teammates.

 

The Kings take on the red-hot Illawarra Hawks on Thursday night (7:30pm on Fox Sports 503), before taking on the Adelaide 36ers on Saturday afternoon (5:30pm on Fox Sports 503 and SBS Viceland).

 

The Kings next home game is on Thursday, November 30 at Qudos Bank Arena.
