    Letting Holmes walk.

    If I’m the GM and I’ve got Fox and Hali as my cornerstones, there’s no more overpaying of role players. Having a contract like Buddy’s is a much bigger concern to me than potentially paying Holmes $10M a year. I love both players, but a successful GM needs to look at these guys without the...

    [Game] Kings Vs. OKC Tuesday May, 4 5PM PT, 8PM ET

    Go Kings. I can’t quite muster enough enthusiasm to insert an exclamation point.

    [Game] Kings @ Mavs, Sunday May 2nd, 5pm Pacific, 8pm Eastern

    You’re being too kind to Buddy. I think he’s about as dumb as a starting NBAer can be. I counted five turnovers tonight, although not all will be counted in the box scores.

    Kings sign Damian Jones for the rest of the season AND next year, waive Chris Silva

    Don't get too excited about this guy. He looks good at times, but other times (like against his former team the Warriors) he looks more like Duane Causwell.

    [Game] Kings vs. Wizards, 4-14-21, 7 PM Pacific (10 PM Eastern)

    Even with Fox, the Kings are so bad that I can no longer watch them. Keep in mind that I've been watching them since they arrived from Kansas City and there has been much more bad than good. But, somehow, I always had hope. But now, I have never felt so hopeless. Although we're one of the worst...

    [Game] Kings vs. Pistons, 4/8/2021, 7pm PST 10pm EST

    Was reading the Kings-Pistons Preview on another site (that shall remain nameless) and saw that the Pistons were busy at the Trade Deadline. Here’s the lineup (gulp): Pistons (15-36): Jrue Holiday, Donte DiVincenzo, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Khris Middleton, Brook Lopez

    [Game] Kings @ Spurs, 3/29/21 5:30pm PST, 8:30pm EST

    With Beli and Cojo gone, our two weak links on defense are Bagley and Hield. We are at a disadvantage when both are on the floor at the same time. If I were the coach, that wouldn't happen. But Bagley is not some useless piece of garbage as some here would have you believe. We just have to give...

    Monte McNair’s Trade Deadline Strategy

    I'm happy with Monte's winnings from the trade deadline. It improves our team for the playoff push. However, with the exception of Haliburton, I doubt that our youngsters are going to get any meaningful PT from this point on. And maybe that's OK if we get this playoff drought off our backs and...

    Monte McNair, Harrison Barnes, and Riding the Starfox

    When Vinny Del Negro had the Clippers rolling, someone asked him “what do you call that offense you’re running?” And Vinny said “it’s called the Chris Paul offense.” If Walton survives here, it will be because of Fox’s trajectory. And one day Luke will answer that question with “it’s called the...

    [Game] Kings vs. Cavaliers 3/37/2021 7pm PST 10pm EST

    I almost turned the game off before that last play. What was I thinking? These guys have heart, and a superstar.

    [Game] Kings at Celtics, Friday March 19th, 4:30 PM PDT

    What's happened to DaQuan? I don't think he's played in a couple of weeks, but he's never listed as injured. Is it just Luke giving all available minutes to CoJo? I am glad Justin is getting some minutes. But DaQuan got the boot before Justin began getting some PT.

    Marvin Bagley breaks hand again

    Almost no chance he returns this year. I feel bad for Marvin. I want Luke gone, but this wasn’t his fault. This is just Marvin’s bad luck. Just like being a fan of this team is an exercise in bad luck.
