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

    15 years worth of draft picks and free agents haven't succeeded. Probably should have made the playoffs one of those years just by dumb luck. The Kings losing streak defies the odds. So there is your answer.

    The board is in a bad head space right now. Need to do a serenity prayer.

    [KINGS] Comments that don't warrant their own thread (Redux)

    Not sure how the franchise is supposed to correct what some perceive as a huge blunder (I don't think that's what this was). Fire the guy who made the decision? Done. The best possible outcome after that is for the guy that WAS picked to grow to his highest potential. Driving Bagley out of...

    NBA Playoffs, Round One

    Knicks showing that trying really hard isn't enough to be a legit good team. They're scrappy. But the talent gap between them and ATL is obvious.

    Have to add cross checks too.

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

    I had lots of snarky responses to Ainge's comment. But sometimes you have to know when to keep your mouth shut. Danny is quite a few years older than me and should have learned by now when to keep his mouth shut too.

    He wasn't MIA. Luke refused to even let him get on the court. Makes me think it wasn't for basketball reasons. But I'm always suspicious of Luke, no matter the situation.

    Kings Roster next season

    If the goal is the playoffs ASAP, don't take a C with a top 3 pick. I personnally have the patience to watch a player develop. But that's not where this fan base is at and it's not where our owner is at. Everything from Monte and Luke from the last couple of days of interviews has centered...

    Kings Roster next season

    He's a good prospect as you've outlined. As with all big men, they need time to develop and for their bodies to fill out. Monte isn't going to wait 3 years for another big. I suspect the Kings are looking to trade the pick, which is why they weren't concerned with tanking.

    Kings Roster next season

    JJJ is what you would need to compliment Holmes. Marvin has had to make the adjustments in his game so they can play Holmes as a starting 5. In reality, Holmes is what we're trying to work around. When the team goes big, we have our small ball center still in the game and we have Marvin...

    Kings Roster next season

    He's a small ball 5 and a traditional 4 that can stretch the floor a little. If you're playjng small, theoretically it's because the other team isn't playing very big at the time. If HB slides down to 4, or Harkless is in, then you have another good defender in the frontcourt with him. If...

    Well.....maybe not kill. Break some bones though. Could probably maybe get away with that.
