    Luka Doncic (the 'LET'S RE-LITIGATE THE PICK UNTO PERPETUITY~!' thread)

    I certainly never said that and feel free to go back to my post history on this one.

    Don't need Luka!

    I definitely thought the Kings should have handed the keys to Doncic because I though Fox still needed another year or two. Obviously they were privy to information most of us didn't have on where Fox would be this season. I frankly don't care if Luka winds up the best player from the draft...

    Luka Doncic (the 'LET'S RE-LITIGATE THE PICK UNTO PERPETUITY~!' thread)

    This thread is the re-litigate the draft thread, not the Doncic thread. And really I have done my best to stay out of it since I said my piece. I like Luka, I wanted to draft Luka, I'm not surprised in the least that he's where he is right now. But I don't think anything is guaranteed for him...

    Luka Doncic (the 'LET'S RE-LITIGATE THE PICK UNTO PERPETUITY~!' thread)

    I think part of the disconnect between those who really really wanted Luka but have accepted the pick we made vs. those who haven't is the "he's only 19" part. Yes he's only 19, but he's already a seasoned pro and his growth chart is different than the average NCAA entrant would be. Many of us...

    Don't need Luka!

    There was a pretty vocal contingent here saying we should have picked him instead of Fox. I would like to know how many of those folks are now on the we should have picked Luka train while now also saying DSJ is a bum. I'm happy with the direction we've went. We've built a squad that isn't...

    Kings over .500/playoff bound?

    Utah had the toughest front end of their schedule and is on easy street down the stretch. They won't be the team that falls off. Although aside from Denver and Golden State I don't think any team in the West is a given, though the league will do their best to help LeBron get in.

    Kings over .500/playoff bound?

    How do the newly adjusted lotto odds work when it comes from a 6-8 ranked team to move up to top 4? Because there are 5 teams already 7 wins or more behind them.

    Luka Doncic (the 'LET'S RE-LITIGATE THE PICK UNTO PERPETUITY~!' thread)

    I don't think this lineup plays to Fox's strengths. We'd need to make moves.

    More on Justin Jackson (split from game thread)

    There's probably been a handful of occasions the other team went small and we countered but he's more or less platooning with Shump right now.

    Revised Kings total WIN predictions

    I'll say 41-45. I know it's a wide range but realistically I see them landing between 40 and 47 and between 7 and 10 in the West. But it will be tough, aside from the Suns, the Grizzlies and Wolves are the only teams I can see throwing in the towel before the last week of the season.

    Luka Doncic (the 'LET'S RE-LITIGATE THE PICK UNTO PERPETUITY~!' thread)

    If Fox and Doncic were on the same team even if we got both of their A+ games we'd be discussing what to do with Buddy or Bogs right now and we'd probably be forced into a huge overpay on WCS. That's the wonder here and what we have been done buy building a "team". Lately teams have been trying...

    More on Justin Jackson (split from game thread)

    His defense has been the real revelation. I think he's embraced/bought into his role which means he doesn't get pulled for trying to do too much and it has given him the confidence to hit the shots when called upon and focus on his strengths.

    Luka Doncic (the 'LET'S RE-LITIGATE THE PICK UNTO PERPETUITY~!' thread)

    It was said the Mavs were the perfect team for Luka, and they've sure done everything possible to magnify his personal star power while minimizing whatever deficiencies he may have. It seems they'll have the only rookie on the all star team this year and he'll run away with the rookie of the...

    Rank the players

    At least a dozen years. And longer since the team has outperformed my most optimistic expectations. It feels like it did in 99.

    Kings over .500/playoff bound?

    Only question is when? With the bottom of the East being so far below the West and all but Phoenix in playoff distance, unless a team takes a nosedive in the next month they might all fight for that 8th seed until they are mathematically out since it will be difficult to finish below 6th.

    Rank the players

    I think the bottom line is we actually have 6 or 7 players that could meaningfully contribute and get 20+ minutes on any team in the league right now, and most of them are under 24. People were saying ahead of the game last night that the Blazers had 3 players better than anyone on our roster...

    Kings over .500/playoff bound?

    I think that would get us in as a 7 or 8. Would be a hell of an improvement on 27 wins. It's pretty amazing that this is realistically on the table. Given how tough our first half was coupled with just a reasonable mount of expected improvement from our young guys this isn't fantasy talk. And...

    Kings over .500/playoff bound?

    All we need now is someone to do home-road splits and figure how many are on b2bs or facing teams coming off b2bs and then do this for every other team in the west and we can figure out if we'll make the playoffs or not without having to wait!

    Rank the players

    Why would they be? They don't watch the Kings. Giles was a guy who hasn't played competitively at a high level for 3 seasons and Bagley is the guy that we inexplicably picked over Doncic, LOLKANGZ. They didn't see Fox 82 games last year, they don't see how when they are on the court together...

    So, how's "the trade" looking now? (split)

    This team has never been able to just blow games on purpose the way others have. But as I unfortunately remember the team did like to sit Cousins at the end of the season which meant there were 2-3 years there where I had Blazers tickets just to see him come to town and he rested. Infuriating.
