    Fire Walton

    I’m starting to think that some fans have forgotten what a really good coach is like. Think back to Malone. I believe most recognized him as a potentially good coach who was firm but fair with players. Turns out he became pretty good. Try comparing Walton and Malone in post game pressers...

    Fairly certain you are responding to a burner account.

    [SI] De'Aaron Fox and the Kings Are Building for the Future

    But, in his last stop, he got Memphis into the playoffs when they set a record for lost games due to injury. It was Coach of the Year worthy. He had the team trending in the right direction. I don’t think he’s overrated but clearly he’s not a Softy McWalton.

    [SI] De'Aaron Fox and the Kings Are Building for the Future

    Perhaps given time, Monte can address any roster issues. Last time I checked, fans love Holmes, Hassan was good enough to start on playoff teams but here Walton wouldn’t really play him, got Mo so Barnes could play PF more.........and he’s only had one abbreviated off-season and one trade...

    Mark Jones named new TV PBP voice

    The best announcing/broadcast night was easily when it was the all woman panel. Mark Jones is fine as a national broadcaster but as the Kings announcer....and paired with DC, as others have said, it’s just not very good.

    2021 Draft prospects

    I think you can get away with it in certain matchups. I think when you watch the Kings post trade deadline, the lineup for stretches that has Wright, TD, Hali and then Harkless or Barnes and either Holmes or Jones at center has been extremely quick and active on defense.....stifling even but...

    [SI] De'Aaron Fox and the Kings Are Building for the Future

    I really like Fox but I’d love to know where he and others stood on Joerger. They started turning the corner but were too soft for a hard nosed coach. Now they have Softy McWalton. Soft roster that Monte needs to continue overturning until he gets more hard nosed players to add to the soft guys.

    [Game] Kings Vs. Thunder, Sunday May 9th, 7 PM Pacific (10 PM Eastern)

    3 things I didn’t know ESPN was the gospel. SGA is a heck of a player...maybe a star. There really isn’t much else there.

    Fire Walton

    This roster is not devoid of talent.. I look at what Thibs has done with NY and wonder what a good NBA coach could do with the same roster....especially after the deals made. And yes, NY is in the East which makes it easier but I’ll stick with with my opinion. A superior coach would have...

    [Game] Kings Vs. Thunder, Sunday May 9th, 7 PM Pacific (10 PM Eastern)

    Exactly. With their 2 high picks, they need to start winning/competing next year. They have no stars. They got a few core pieces. They got a trove of picks that they need to hit on and get lucky or start dealing to obtain a star around the hopeful young stars they add in lottery. Right now...

    Fire Walton

    It’s this. If you allow Walton to continue and then fire him midway next year, it’s another lost season. Walton has not produced. The talent on this team should have been enough to produce a playoff team and not just a team scratching to get into the play ins. Look what Thibs did in NY...

    New Head Coach options

    Been thinking a lot about this quite a bit. I think there is one option and one option only to take this organization to the desired heights and rally the fan base and city. It’s a tall job but the right person for the job is: Jimmer Fredette

    New Head Coach options

    My worry is that because of the salary still owed Walton, he is around for 1 more year......Vivek’s call on this. Monte keeps building roster in his vision for 1 more year.

    New Head Coach options

    Once, a long time ago, Vivek hired Michael Malone. It was a good hire. It would be swell if he/McNair could come up with another up and coming guy or gal.......but you know, not fire them if they get off to a good start
