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

    Fox has improved and added to his game every offseason. His instincts may be score first, but he’s self aware enough to know he needs to expand his game and be a better playmaker. And as others have mentioned, he and Hali are a great complimentary backcourt. If we’re actually in a place where...

    Kings approach at the draft...

    Good counterpoint. Maybe I’m just mentally preparing myself for a summer of Vivekfoolery.

    Kings approach at the draft...

    9th will get us what? Either a role player or a chance to swing for the fences on a player with high bust potential? I don’t think we’re really in the position to give a lower tier prospect 3 years or so to see if they’ll stick as a rotation player. If we can get an established guy to pair with...

    NBA Playoffs, Round One

    Lakers are toast if he ends up missing time. I don’t see old man LeBron carrying a team like he could in his younger years.

    Yeah, the Buddy/Bogi was horrible roster design and lead to a lot of forced play from both players. Ah well

    I may have to eat some crow with Bogi. I hated his game as a King, and I believe I told you as much in another thread, but he’s been killing it for them. Luke Walton effect haha

    Luka leaves the Mavs after they fail to get him help, “comes home” to the Kings after Vivek woos him. Luka/Fox lead us to a chip in 2028.

    I’m actually a believer in the Fox/Hali core. I think those two can really take us places. It’s the supporting cast, coach, and owner I’m worried about.

    I’m hoping it won’t be me one day too, but it’s pretty hard to not be salty about it as the Kings continue to suck. Honestly, wouldn’t sting as bad if we were in the playoffs. And whenever the Kings play the Mavs, I sure as hell ain’t rooting for Luka.

    Haha, SLAB beat me to the “it’s all of us” joke I was going to make. How I console myself these days, and you are all welcome to try this, is telling myself that Vivek would have ****’d up the Kings Luka era anyways and he would have left in free agency, so maybe it’s actually easier this way.

    Are you saying this is me, and everyone else who continues to whine about Luka not being a King?! Because yes.

    Time to watch Boy Wonder demolish the Clippers while mumbling profanity towards Vlade under my breath for two hours!

    Interesting question! KAT seems to be the very definition of a “empty stats” player, but Edwards looks like he’s going to be a future super star, so maybe KAT will shine in a Robin role. IF Minny keeps their pick, they could have a pretty solid core. Or maybe they’ll flip KAT for some good...
