    More on Justin Jackson (split from game thread)

    Jackson was featured in Zach Lowe’s weekly “10 things I like/don’t like” column. Guess whether he was liked or not liked?

    Kings interested in Lin?

    Yeah, I could see Houston trading a first if they could get back Lin and someone like Dedmon to help out at center with Capela out. Salaries match well enough with Knight and Chriss going to ATL, I think.

    [Game] Kings vs Suns Jan 6PT-9ET

    Did they get too much praise for the ball movement against the Magic? Seemed like they made one too many passes at times tonight.

    Sleeptrain Arena could be a new zoo for Sacramento

    Well, a friend of mine from out of town used to joke that Sacramento locals would say everything is 15 minutes away no matter the distance. But, in this instance, I think 15 minutes is about right! The current location and proposed site are completely different, though. I understand Natomas'...

    [Game] Kings V Denver - 1/3/19 - 7 PM PST

    I really think Otto Porter could do wonders for this team.

    [Game] Kings V Denver - 1/3/19 - 7 PM PST

    Since it happens so often, I have to think it’s strategy. Coach isn’t one to suffer recurring lapses. Besides, it’s clear they like having a big up top to leak out on the break. They’re gambling on getting the rebound, though, and it’s been biting them recently.

    [Game] Kings V Denver - 1/3/19 - 7 PM PST

    This is an important point, and one that will get lost on those who just look at the box score.

    Willie Cauley-Stein: the 2018-19 Season watch

    I believe it was the WCS “crystal ball” thread this summer where I mentioned I saw him long term as our third big. I still do. zach Lowe recently suggested “Larry Nance money” as a realistic hope for the Kings ($45M for four years) and id be fine with that. Surveying the teams with available...

    Why no Bjelica in crunch time?

    Can just pull the rebounds per/100 possession #s to make the best comparison: Bagley: 12.2 Bjelica: 11.2 For reference: Koufos: 16.9 WCS: 13.8 (maybe the "eye test" is giving him a bad rep, too?) link: My eyes saw Bjelica...

    [Game] Kings @ Lakers - Sunday, Dec. 30 - 6:30PT/9:30ET

    I don't know about that. The Kings need Bogdan's playmaking when Fox sits. Finish the game with your best lineup, Bodgdan included, of course--but I think you are better off starting Buddy and staggering Fox/Bogdan early on. One thing I liked last night was when Fox got his fourth foul and...

    Why are the Stats model so off on the Kings?

    I may be way off on this, but I believe 538’s model is based on its model for individual player projections. So, if the model is off on a few key players, it could miss on the team as a whole quite a bit. I haven’t checked, but I’d guess that a few key Kings are overperforming their projection...

    What are you reading?

    Saw this in the book store the other day and was tempted to pick it up. I'm still working through Chernow's 900-plus-page Grant, though, and the thought of taking on another 800-plus page book seemed too daunting. I may have been the only one of my friends not to take his course in college, so...

    [Game] Kings v. Thunder - Wednesday, Dec. 19 - 7PT/10ET

    Did you watch the video? My first impression of the quote was the same as yours. However, the video shows a reporter asking questions essentially setting Willie up to say something along the lines that you suggest. He doesn’t. If anything, he comes off as thinking thus he’s already that good...

    Harry Giles thread back on track ;)

    I do wonder, though, are decisions to send guys up/down made by the coaching staff? Front office? Some combination?

    Usually watching the video of questionable comments helps me understand the context and, often, feel better. I'm not sure this is one of those times:

    DeAaron Fox

    Best player on the court this evening. The only thing that stops him is when he briefly forgets that.
