    [Game] Kings @ Hornets - Thursday, Jan. 17 - 4PT/7PT

    Doug and Grant were late on Wed. Late in that they weren’t able to start their show. The reason? There was a bus issue where their bus followed the team’s bus to a gym in the Carolinas. The second bus should’ve taken them to the team’s hotel. So whatever Kate said, she was likely off.

    [Game] Kings @ Hornets - Thursday, Jan. 17 - 4PT/7PT

    Pretty certain the Kings flew in on Wednesday. That said, jet lag is real, but it depends on the person's schedule. As an undergrad, I spent a summer in Philly and it took me a week to adjust to the time change. As an adult, I've traveled to and worked from Hawaii to the east coast (waking...

    Who is the best Kings insider?

    Amick, primarily because he doesn't need insider access to do his job. The others risk biting the hand that feeds them. But to be fair, I glean tidbits from all of them. Only times I lose respect is when they rehash the narrative instead of overlaying their material with real, objective...

    Minority Owners Meddling again

    A few relevant thoughts: Think Mastrov was rumored to be trying to selling his share. Think Vivek owns like 17% (had 30% earlier, Amick article a year or so ago says 17%). Not worried so much about this. Kings win and everyone is jumping in line to take credit. This seems to be the case here.

    Kings over .500/playoff bound?

    Yea. The numbers back it. Outside of that 2 min burst from the startersin the third period, the bench extended rather than lose the Kings lead. Jackson, Bags, Giles > WCS, Bjelly, Shump. But I'm fine with the kids coming off the bench for this year. It's minutes anyways. But what happens...

    Kings over .500/playoff bound?

    I'm less worried about what other teams do. Based entirely on the Kings getting much better and much deeper. This isn't an old team that has topped out. The players are accelerating--JJ is in the corner waving his hands like crazy, because he's open and wants to nail the corner 3. When...

    Kings over .500/playoff bound?

    Just chiming in to say that, barring injury, the Kings are going to make the playoffs. Our bench, with those two young bigs, is simply dominant. We have three level scoring with Bags down low, Giles all over, and Bogie bombing threes. Both bigs are active, have a motor, and give a damn on...

    Forward Thinking Trade Ideas?

    Oubre, Middleton, Bogie 2.0, or Harris will be a king next year. As for college threes, Kris Wilkes would be a steal in the 2nd round. Legit 6’8 with one of the smoothest jumpers in college. Okpala is hard to project. I don’t see the explosion, but he has the length. He ends up being Moe...

    Assessing Giles (January version)

    Last year, both here and STR (especially so), folks were killing Vlade for trading the 10th pick (with the assumption that Mitchell would be the pick) for Jackson and Giles. Wonder where the consensus is now and where it'll be at the end of this year?

    Draft and Develop

    If I have time this weekend, would like to pull the acceleration rate for average rookies and then apply and compare it to the Kings kids. Looking not too far ahead, it's certainly within reason to envision both Giles and Bags shooting a mid .30s rate from three. And without looking that far...

    Draft and Develop

    2016: WCS 2017: Bogs, Papa, Malachi, & Skal. Plus Buddy via trade. 2018: Fox, Giles, Jackson, & Mason. 2019: Bags. Hits to Misses: 7/3. 70% hit rate. Misses: Papa, Malachi, & Skal. Flashing superstar level talent: Fox, Bags, Giles. High level core player: Bogs & Buddy. 10 year pro...

    Kings discussing trade for Kanter?- Woj

    The answer is the "lotto" is really only relevant to the top 4 slots (it was top 3 previously, I believe). Everyone else gets ranked by losses after the top 4. The reason why the 5th worse team has less of a chance of moving back than the 1st team is there's only 9 teams that can push the 5th...

    Kings discussing trade for Kanter?- Woj

    I met Noah Vonleh a year or so ago at the Sawyer. Had a nice convo, but I didn't know who he was. Knew he was on the Blazers, but couldn't place his face. Lolz. Good demeanor.

    Kings discussing trade for Kanter?- Woj

    Without looking at the salary, Kanter the player would be perfect for this year's team. He's better than KK and is a poor man's Steven Adams. Would provide the interior beast presence that we do not have from any of our bigs, because of mentality (WCS), physical maturity (Giles, Bags), or...

    Doesn’t help when the opposing team has made a decision to foul n go after steaks n the Kings run the same stupid plays right into double teams.

    [Game] Kings vs Suns Jan 6PT-9ET

    That was just pathetic. Joeger got cute. Tried to save his players. Then when Phoenix started jumping drivers, he ran the same stupid sets,, clogging the middle n allow guys to get stripped. Phx was in the penalty with like 8 mins to go. All you had to do was clear the court n have Fox...
