    [NBA] Comments that don't warrant a thread (MAY)

    That is officially the best thing that has happened this season.

    [Game] Kings vs. Spurs, 7pm Pacific 10pm Eastern

    It's why I didn't get excited over this run but I didn't want to be a negative Nancy and poo on people's excitement either. It's just clear as day that this is the same old same old "make a run at it until you're mathematically eliminated" instead of doing what smart teams do and shut it down...

    Bagley’s worth now

    Bagley is who he is. He's capable of putting up 30 and 15 if given the minutes but he's not capable of playing winning basketball over any kind of stretch. He's not the type of player you want to go "I told you so" on people because he'll make you look silly the next game and it doesn't matter...

    New Head Coach options

    I think he would be better than Walton but still ultimately a waste of time in the end. With this roster I think it would go the way of the Knicks and Lakers while he was there more than it would Phoenix and Houston. Might even go worse since we don't have a player that's as good as any of the...

    New Head Coach options

    I was just joking but the Kings have the worst defense of all time with a decent offense and D'Antoni is not known for his defense. It would more than likely just be more of the same.

    Hang it in the rafters next to the Western Conference Championship banners.

    2021 Draft prospects

    I don't see what's special about that play at 5:35. His teammate poked the ball away and he had a straight line drive, breakaway slam. Looks like one of the easier plays a basketball player could make.

    Following Potential *2020* Draftees

    To whom it may concern: I was wrong about Isaiah Stewart. He already looks better than what I thought his ceiling was.

    Letting Holmes walk.

    The metrics don't really back up Barnes as being average on defense though. He passes the eye test but continually has poor metrics compared to how he is viewed by fans and other players around the league. I think he's our best trade piece because his impact doesn't match how highly he's valued...

    Bagley’s worth now

    Could be one of two things. If they play Holmes and Bagley and they run Bagley in the pick and roll, it's easier to defend because they can send the guy covering Holmes over to help since Holmes has no outside shot. If you run it with Bagley, someone has to stay home on Bagley because you have...

    Letting Holmes walk.

    Crazy theory I just thought of but I wonder if this could potentially be true. The Kings are the worst defensive team this year. The starting lineup has been particularly bad Fox - bad Hield - bad Barnes - below average Bagley - bad Holmes - average Say you take out Barnes and replace him...

    Sweet! Thanks, had no idea.

    Letting Holmes walk.

    I think Holmes has transitioned from unskilled energy big to a very skilled, decent energy big. He used to beat the Kings up by being tough, scrappy, winning all the 50/50 balls and just generally out hustling the team. These days he's very skilled but he's skilled within a limited box. He's...

    [Game] Kings at Pacers, Wednesday May 5th, 5 PM Pacific (8 PM Eastern)

    Retaining Delon Wright is a must. He is by far and away the Kings best perimeter defender. His impact on the game is up there basically behind only Fox and maybe Holmes. He should be starting in place of Buddy Hield next year if the Kings want to actually try to win games instead of just scoring...
