    Where's the Love for Coach Walton?

    So, basically, if Walton stops using CoJo or CoJo gets traded, then Walton would be the best coach ever, because that's all you guys seem to have to complain about coach. ;)

    Here's a nice write up about Luke and the coaching staff turning things around. Seems like Ham has been reading this thread. ;) https://www.yahoo.com/sports/kings-win-streak-hits-four-010321894.html

    Where's the Love for Coach Walton?

    What other proven NBA player do the Kings have to put in as the 4th guard currently? Eventually, Kyle Guy may gain the trust of Coach to give him those minutes, but CoJo has been a quality defensive guard in the NBA for 9+ years. He was considered one of the better backup point guards in the NBA...

    In time that may happen, but Guy needs to win the coaches trust before he gets those minutes. And eventually he may get those minutes. But as for now, the Kings are winning with the lineup Luke is putting out there, so why not enjoy the moment?

    Where's the Love for Coach Walton?

    Like I said, who you going to put out there for 20 minutes as the 4th guard? If there are no other viable option to fill in that 20 minutes, the alternative of sticking someone like Guy or Ramsey (who are not ready for PT) would make the Kings worse than CoJo does. TBH, you guys make it out...

    These Kings players are just plain amazing! Coached themselves to a 12-11 record and a tie for the 8th seed in the ultra tough Western Conference all by themselves! Truly Amazing! ;)

    Where's the Love for Coach Walton?

    Well, who would he use as that 4th guard? Kyle Guy for 20 min a game? If he did, the Kings wouldn't be sniffing the playoffs picture right now. CoJo still offers a veteran hand and defensive presence when he is on the floor. The Kings have been winning these tight games and having a veteran...

    Where's the Love for Coach Walton?

    I think a lot times, coaches don't want to put a player in that situation, after sitting them for the whole 4th quarter and then sticking them in for the crucial last couple of seconds. It's going to be tough for any player, especially a young player to make the correct play in that high...

    Where's the Love for Coach Walton?

    The Kings are 0.500 22 games into this season and only 1.0 game out of the playoffs and 1.5 games out of the 4th seed. You can say what you want about what happened in the Bubble and the defensive breakdowns early on, but this team is looking mighty good and Coach Walton deserves some love for...

    Fire Walton

    WTH happened to the defensive juggernaut team that the Kings were putting on the floor through the first 4 games? Those first few games of the season, the Kings looked really good on the defensive end.

    Fire Walton

    Vlade had already decided to fire Joeger before that last game. I think Joeger threw that last game because he found out mid-game he was going to be fired. I remember the players whispering to each other in the middle of the game. Then in the second half, Joeger threw out the whole end of the...

    VLADE!!

    OK. I'm going to put this out there. Haliburton is the "better shooting, less ball dominating, better decision making, less flashy" version of Luka that the Kings desperately needed alongside Fox. Basically, Haliburton is a more "under control" version of Luka. Haliburton has the same "Luka...

    [Grades] Kings vs. Denver, 12/29/20

    All this Walton hate really needs to stop guys. We are 3-1 and the Kings are playing like a cohesive team on the upswing. The players are not coaching themselves, Coach Walton deserves some credit for righting this ship. This is a new season, let's judge the coach by what the Kings do this...

    VLADE!!

    To be fair, Vlade definitely deserves some credit, considering that 7 of the 10 rotation players are from Vlade tenure. To be sure, Luke is showing some coaching chops so far this season. But Monte also brought in two top notch assistant coaches in Alvin Gentry (for Offense) and Rex Kalamian...
