    DeMarcus Cousins Watch, 2021-22 season (was: Boogie to the Bucks!)

    LOL this is a hell of a take considering Malone's track record 5-6 years after leaving us. He's not a perfect coach by any means, but I sure as hell would take the Nuggets performance over ours.

    Blow It Up

    Ah. the old "Why didn't the Kings just select every star player picked after them?" trope. Classic. Mainly because teams are really bad at drafting and talent evaluation. No one hits a home-run on every 1st round pick year after year. But what bad teams (in any sport really) will do is give...

    Trade targets

    John Collins would be another double-dip type of acquisition in terms of a win-now player, while still planning for the future. Really good, only 24 years old, lights-out shooter, have him long-term. Fox/Hali/Collins would be by far the most talented trio we've had in 15 years and still just...

    I'm here for the "Tyrese sucks" slander 3 years early.

    Davion starts, team shows pride on defense. Who woulda thunk it?

    Blow It Up

    Yeah it'd be clear to me if that happened that the GM position is just a puppet for Vivek's insistence on pushing for a 10 seed. And that there's really no hope to turn this franchise around under his ownership.

    Also, if you haven't watched Stockton yet, I recommend catching a game. Bobby has those guys playing super tough on defense and you see visible effort to be great on that end. The developmental guys are being brought up correctly and looking really good (all Monte prospects btw).

    Trade targets

    uhh so? Because we've been bad in the past, we shouldn't try to get a talent with the upside to eventually get to a title team?

    Not the point. It's find out if any of them can be a long-term piece with a consistent role/playing time. It's a no lose situation: 1. We very likely lose a ton of games. Gets us in line for a franchise changing talent 2. If we do win, it's on the back of young players that could be apart of...

    Agreed with this take here. This stretch is really important to bottom out because it might FINALLY be enough to convince Vivek that it's fool-hardy to try to continue for the 10 seed. If a 2-6, 1-7 stretch after getting our ass kicked by 53 doesn't wake him up, then it's literally pointless to...

    So if this isn't rock-bottom what is? How can the brain trust honestly watch this and be like "Yo, once we improve our 8th man, we're in!"

    I can't be sure, but with Fox out Barnes, Hali, Davion and Buddy shooting a combined 3-32 probably means we aren't going to win the game.

    [Game] Kings at Celtics, 1/25/2022 4:30pm PT/7:30pm ET

    I mean, if we're being real, there's really no use evaluating the players much anymore. I think this teams core/spirit is pretty much broken and has been for awhile now. I don't think anyone is actually playing to their talent level right now. Which is why this team is ripe for a tear-down, but...

    Yeah but the made up math from KB02 says we'd be giving up 10% MORE points if Fox were on the floor. So just imagine how bad that'd be.
