While those links do provide some good information, they do not address the king vs giant issue. I've done some research myself and most say that "kings" are half-giants, bettas that carry a giant gene but do not express it to the full size of an actual giant
As a side note (because I know that you are working on your social skills)
Just posting links with no other text or information about the link you are posting can be seen as rude. You might try wording posts in which you would like to include links like this:
Here is an interesting article that I think applies to this topic/situation (post link)
This is a site that I default to when I have questions about fish keeping (post link)
Posting links this way makes your post seem more personal and may inspire more people to read them as well as providing general background information for that website
5 bettas: Шостакович Shostakovich, Dimitri, Blood, Fancy Pants & Miss Priss; 1 cat: Rajah
