    C/PF off season discussion

    That's what Im saying. IDK how much better of a team we'd actually be with him, but watching Grant try to call 82 Kings games and "root" for Boogie would be well worth the price of admission.

    HOT TAKES THREAD!!!

    huh? That's literally the path 95% of great offensive players take in the NBA, especially rookie big men who are never the focus of their team's offense in that first season. You look for indicators that a young player can take that step; how often is he getting to free throw line? Where is he...

    HOT TAKES THREAD!!!

    ..I know Thus why I said in my post "Now we obviously need to see him maintain these rates at 30+ MPG and increased USG" What in his stat profile suggests he won't be able to maintain efficiency with his increased USG? We need to see it (duh), but there aren't any red flags that pop up that...

    HOT TAKES THREAD!!!

    Bagley: 24.6 MPG 58% TS .397 FTr 23.3% USG 11% TOV Doncic: 32.4 MPG 54.6% TS .408 FTr 30.2% USG 15.1% TOV So Doncic rates are a poor #1 option (which is mightily impressive for a 19 year old rookie) while Bagley rates are a quality #2(again, very impressive). Bagley absolutely has to prove...

    HOT TAKES THREAD!!!

    -My hot take is that this is a horrid take. The Warriors had a championship roster with a 2 all-stars and a generational HoF talent just waiting to be utilized properly. Was clear as day coaching was holding them back from fulfilling their potential. -This is currently in-development team that...

    HOT TAKES THREAD!!!

    -All you thinking Joerger is on the hot seat when he's lead the team to its best record in a decade and very likely to a +10 win improvement are delusional. Or if they do actually fire them, then Vlade and the FO are delusional. Either way, someone is delusional.

    Giles Will Start Soon.

    I think its a designated pitch count to keep him in the 18-22 minute range. Which is completely fine by me. I think it'll do wonders for him to get a full season under his belt injury-free so he can get that monkey off his back and really focus on playing ball without that nagging "Will I get...

    [Game] Nets @ Kings - Tuesday, March 19 - 7PT/10ET

    This is why I'm very glad fans do not have a say in running the team. Bunch of emotional wrecks that don't think long-term and only care what's happening in the moment. Firing Joerger now with a flawed roster after a very likely 10+ win improvement season(just assuming we win at least 3 more...

    [Game] Nets @ Kings - Tuesday, March 19 - 7PT/10ET

    Sheesh. Nerlens isn't in the same conversation as the other two. Not by a long shot.

    C/PF off season discussion

    Probably nothing we'd want to trade. He's their Bagley/Fox, so it'd include one of them.

    Giles Will Start Soon.

    But without Grant's over reactions, how would we ever remember that point?

    C/PF off season discussion

    I almost think Bjeli and Miro could work together. Offensively, it'd be unreal spacing obviously and really strong fits off the Fox drive and kick, but Bjeli is probably better defensively at the 5 where he can use his sneaky good rim protection. Can't remember many times where he's been...

    C/PF off season discussion

    Harry making me believe all of this a moot point and we should be looking for competent back-ups: Nerlens Noel, Holmes, Vonleh types.

    [Game] Bulls @ Kings Sunday, March 17 - 3:00 PM PT/6:00 PM ET

    Lol why? You don't like 18-6-3 on 61% TS and 50% from 3pt on 5.4 attempts with the Bulls?

    What do the Kings need to do this summer to make the playoffs next year?

    No, but he can secure the rebound, throw strong outlet passes and be a trailer target for an open jumper after Fox collapses the defense in transition.
