    Buddy and Bogdan’s extension?

    What can I say? I'm ready to bet on our core right now. It won't be too many seasons before nobody will want to face us in a seven game series.

    Buddy and Bogdan’s extension?

    I'm very surprised by people's reactions. He said some honest things in public that should be kept behind closed doors, but they aren't sentiments I can blame him for having. Personally I'd be happy paying him above 25 million per year. I know some people are worried he may regress, but...

    What 3 things do you want to see in camp/Training Camp 2019

    Luke Walton on Media Day: "When we get stops, that's when we're a jailbreak team." "But if a team scores, or we're taking the ball out of bounds after a dead ball, we want to be able to flow." "If we want to not only get to the Playoffs, but then win in the Playoffs, we have to be able to...

    Harry been workin

    I'm close to being almost, just shy of, not quite, bordering on, verging on, approaching the brink of a roughly similar level of fitness.

    TDOS 2019 - Desert Island Music Draft (revisited)

    I suspect my album picks are even less likely to be picked by somebody else than my movie picks were last year. Though based on his film selection I am quite curious to see if Turgenev and I have any overlap.

    TDOS 2019 - Desert Island Music Draft (revisited)

    I didn't mean it like that. If you couldn't do it, you couldn't do it. I'd still like to see what you and anybody else's lists may have looked like.

    TDOS 2019 - Desert Island Music Draft (revisited)

    Bummer. I was really looking forward to seeing what people here like, and curious as to who if anybody would like my picks. I don't see why we couldn't have done the draft with who we have. Oh well. I'll post what my list may have looked like anyway. These would almost certainly be my top...

    2019/2020 Schedule release Aug 12 Noon

    All I see when I look at the schedule are 82 winnable games. The days of tough stretches and writing games off as losses are behind us.

    FiveThirtyEight Project Kings to Finish Last in West

    I just keep thinking that the game is going to come very easily to Fox this upcoming season. I think it could be the year we really see how special a player he is. If Bagley makes a significant jump, we are going to have a lot of fun.

    TDOS 2019 - Desert Island Music Draft (revisited)

    I just realized VF21 made this thread on my birthday. I was hoping for this very category for this summer's TDOS too. Thanks for the present. :)

    FiveThirtyEight Project Kings to Finish Last in West

    Their Carmelo rating categorizes Deandre Ayton and Jaren Jackson Jr. as "future all-stars", yet categorizes Marvin Bagley III as just a "project". It also categorizes Buddy Hield as just an "average starter". 538 might want to avoid sports forever.

    Next season’s scapegoat.

    Neither was my post. Consider this a belated :p;).

    Next season’s scapegoat.

    Is this a thread about who we're going to blame when we win the championship in seven games instead of four? Seems kind of petty

    Kings will no longer have cheerleaders

    I had a couple Kings cheerleaders at my bar mitzvah party. I don't see the 916 Crew being in demand to do such events.

    TDOS 2019 - Desert Island Music Draft (revisited)

    I am absolutely in. Music is my passion. I have very eclectic record collection and a pretty decent stereo system. And I'm always happy to recommend some of my favorites, even if I'm not too good at describing what makes them great.
