    Bagley.

    The question at least to me is how will he develope into a winning player and what his role is going to be. I'm not worried about his point or rebound totals, I'm worried how much value would he bring for winning basketball games since even with his per36 numbers (a stat that I dont care about...

    [NBA] Comments that don't warrant a thread (MAR-TBD)

    Just finished the Lakers - Clippers game. Its incredible how Lebron James can still be the best player in the world at his age. Sure he will coast quite a bit in the regular season (while still being top 2 valuable player) but this weekend was apparently something he wanted to really show up...

    What could the future (rest of this season) hold for the Kings?

    Hard pass. Vlade has had enough time. His drafting and overall strategy has been horrible. Wether we luck out this year (somehow getting the 8th seed and getting swept in the 1st round) or not, this team hasnt been led well. Theres been way too much incompetence to justify keeping this decision...

    Bagley.

    I'm talking about what I'm seeing. I dont do Twitter that much so I dont see stuff in there regarding Bagley. Reading this site I'm not seeing Bagley beeing hated as a human, I'm seeing his skillset/performance/contribution to winning being criticized. If there is some posts that are hatefull...

    Sam Amick interview this morning talking about potential Kings FO changes

    I dont like these "talent guys". That talent evaluation hasnt been good enough. Either drop some of them or add a bunch of new talent evaluaters. Hinkie could be a good strategy guy. A guy that implements a three year plan for the rebuild/retooling and he could even leave drafting and fa...

    Bagley.

    Some good points but to me this is a bit overthinking it. Bagley is criticized, not hated. He is criticized because of his level of play/value of his skill set isnt good enough for his draft position. Passing on Luka just makes it worse because Luka was the obvious pick for anyone that...

    Bagley.

    Last year we had the same core talent as this year. I dont know your stance on Joeger but some people say that he was a good head coach. Last year we also had the best injury luck in the whole league per this: http://instreetclothes.com/team-analysis/sacramento-kings/ So we had the talent, had...

    Athletic Article On the Kings Today

    The next GM would most likely be an upgrade to Vlade so to me that isnt an issue. If we recognize that our current gm is bad, we have to make a change. To me the argument "what if the next gm is bad too" isnt that relevant. If you as an owner really cant hire even an average gm, you cycle them...

    Bagley @ the 5 or bust.

    Bagley paired with a non shooting big takes so much away from Bagley offensively. Bagley as a pick n roll screener would be worse if there were already another big clogging the lane. Same with his post ups. Playing with a non shooting big would somewhat demote him to a floor spacer. Hes not good...

    Athletic Article On the Kings Today

    My point of view in this is that we can do this "win now lets get the 8th seed" for another 13 years and its just not a good strategy. The core isnt there, cap flexibilty is done and we have no meaningful future draft assets. Continuity for the sake of continuity isnt always great. When you have...

    Hollinger 30-win prediction

    Every year there are these "national media is so unfair to us" threads. Maybe the national media has some solid arguments on why they are so negative towards us? I mean, 13 years worth of garbage, why would anyone give us the benefit of the doubt? Due to a copywright rules I have to summarize...

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

    I'm extremely intrigued on these new Rockets. Can you truly be succesful without a true big man? Warriors "death lineup" had 6'6 Draymond as a C and they were extremely succesful with that lineup. Of cource Draymond was DPOY level player but if these Rockets can be succesful with PJ Tucker as a...

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

    Like the case is for most big men, AD's biggest impact in his career has been in the defensive end. Hes also a good offensive big (compared to other big men). Hes a great roll man/lob threat that can create some for himself but hes not a guy that will create efficent offense for others and that...

    Kings trade Dedmon for Parker and Len (merged)

    I thought i answered to that with: In short: If the gm has missed every single salary dump trade since he became a gm, the argument "how do you know it was offered to us" isnt valid anymore, at least to me. It might be true on some cases, but unlikely that it was the case with all these...

    Kings trade Dedmon for Parker and Len (merged)

    No one knows what was offered, but smart franchises work the phone on these type of deals. Once it was clear that GSW needed to shed salary in order to make their moves, it would've been smart to immediately start working some deal like that. You could've even undercut that deal by giving back...
