A couple of weeks ago in a game against the 76ers, the closed captioning of the King’s broadcast referred to rookie Nik Stauskas as “Sauce Castillo”.
After the new nickname blew up on the internet, the Kings decide to capitalize on the funny mistake. In last night’s game against the Utah Jazz, the Kings had Sauce Castillo Night and gave out small bottles of hot sauce to everyone in attendance. The promotion didn’t work as the Kings still lost and Stauskas only scored four points.
I don’t think the nickname will stick for the Canadian Stauskas.
