    Hield and Simmons

    I know, and I hate it too. But I'm willing to give up more for Ben Simmons. I'm willing to give up anyone not named Fox and Haliburton for such a 5-star talent even without him fixing his shots. It is simply a much better gamble than venturing into the draft to find someone at the 9th who...

    Hield and Simmons

    Yes. steelevt gets me. :p I mean, to be fair, it is a huge gamble on the Kings' end to lose a 40%+ 3 point shooter (not to mention who'd always willingly give you 120% effort either he plays well or not, and had displayed an urgency in help defense), and a big man who still has high potential...

    Hield and Simmons

    I think anything short of giving up the backcourt dynamic duo is a win for me. As much as Ben Simmons was exposed in this Playoffs, he's still a multi-talented oversized wing who's 24 years old. Personally, if I was the Sixers I'd much rather be spending millions on finding a sports...

    Hield and Simmons

    Just a random shower trade thought. Buddy + Marvin (+ 2021 1st to leverage more) for Ben Simmons? Morey and McNair are close friends (according to some podcast I remember listening to). Alternate fantasy scenario, would you do it?

    Fire Walton

    We, well, I got sold the bill of goods. I thought every move a franchise do should be driven by trying to win. I have never and will never root for tanking. Honestly. Every season we have full 2 rounds of rookies and buncha undrafted players trying to make it before, during, and after the draft...

    Fire Walton

    I am slowly getting the feeling that they might be sticking with Walton next year for that specific reason (making the Playoffs) because, if I put myself in McNair's shoes, I'd be smart to do that simply because by the end of next season, I can either fire him due to missing the Playoffs, or...

    [SI] De'Aaron Fox and the Kings Are Building for the Future

    They’ll have to make a decision on coach Luke Walton, whose job security was questioned in a recent piece by The Athletic's Shams Charania and Sam Amick. One factor in Walton’s favor: his growing rapport with Fox, who called him “someone that I’ve grown to trust.” Jerome Miron/USA TODAY Sports...

    What If?

    I'll take any win against the Lakers disregarding if it was a charity game in Thomas and Mack, NBA 2K tournament, skill challenge, 3 pt shootout... at any point no matter what phase our team is in, rebuilding or contending.

    Looking at the impact of TD, Harkless, and most importantly Delon, I can't help but wonder where the highly critical sac town dog is where you need him... oh never mind, I must have had him on ignore already...

    Fox out 10-14 days - Health and Safety Protocol

    Do facts still relevant or is this even real life? 1: "Instead he dithered and got nothing"? He got what he wanted in Donte Divenchenzo but the leak F'd us up. 2: Delon is part of the rebuild. With Fox and Haliburton, Delon is the flexible piece who can come out give you at least one of the...

    I hope that you're wrong. But I have no proof of that whatsoever.
