    Are Top 5 picks that much better? (split)

    Considering the 3rd Quartile (assuming a box and whiskers) lands on 1.5, and has a max of 2.4ish I would say that it might be useful to pick a different argument. Out of the 35 players selected in that range, your 3rd quartile ends at 1.5. That's not a big number, statistically speaking. Not...

    Winning culture (split from game thread)

    You don't need to look further than your Sacramento Kings. Unfortunately, winning culture has always been impacted by management. Whether it's letting a roster sit and stew (we ended 2010 on a 9-9 run, and looked pretty solid), or, more recently, letting a coach sit and grow with his team (how...

    [Game] Kings v. Heat - Wednesday, March 14 - 7 PDT

    Seriously though, if Skal is healthy, I'm sure Z-Bo isn't getting those minutes. That should at least temper that argument for this game. As for the big picture, think about the last few games - it HAS been the youth leading the Kings to wins. If anything, you should be frustrated with Joerger...

    We also played more vets earlier in the season. It comes with the territory, I suppose, but we probably won't see significant improvement in the defense this year with the youth movement.

    Kings waiving papa morphed into Vlade sucks

    Considering what he was able to do overall, yeah. I think we came out OK. Swap Skal and PapaG order, no one bats an eye. But no credit is given for Skal. Or Bogdanovic. In what so far was a weak draft.

    [Game] Kings v. Nuggets - Saturday, Jan. 6 - 7 PT

    Wow. Good finish. That's why you have vets in the game. They didn't necessarily win the game, but they kept things under control. That's how you do it. Solid.

    Joerger isn't the issue here. Our youthful roster is the issue.
