    [NBA] Western Conference Playoffs, Round 1

    A few of us would have been cool with getting him here but I'm sure he's happy going to a high seeded playoff team.

    C/PF off season discussion

    I would be for him in our bigs rotation if Bagley or giles bulked up or become more dependable at the 5. Love seeing that effort

    C/PF off season discussion

    Where else would we use the money? Assuming Barnes opts in, we are set at pg and sg and barnes is highly paid at sf. Bagley set at pf. The only position of need to spend on is at C. We need a back up pg but we shouldn't spend big money there. I know usually with a team that didn't make the...

    Kings hire Luke Walton

    That's how I feel it should be. No matter how much you hate a draft/free agent/new coach, once he becomes a king, you have to root for success because doing otherwise (to prove you're right) just seems selfish and why would any fan want someone on his team to fail?Criticism is fine but in the...

    Did Kerr rest his starters for the 2nd half or something?

    Kings hire Luke Walton

    Even tho I hate the Lakers, I'm not usually one of those "once a laker always a laker, keep them away from my team" but... Minority owner: Shaq GM: Vlade Coach: Luke Walton Possible assistant coach: Brian Shaw TV color commentator: Doug Christie :eek::eek::eek:

    C/PF off season discussion

    I always hoped wcs would model his game after deandre Jordan. Defensive shot blocker and rebounder who got most of his points off lobs and put backs. Get like 15-20 points and rebounds without plays needed to be drawn up for him. I'm just wondering how much it would cost to get Jordan vs Mcgee...

    Kings hire Luke Walton

    I'm not one to call out how to be a fan but when someone would rather be "right" more than their teams' or its players/coach's success is very telling. I'm hoping you meant to say "u believe this is a bad hire and he might get fired in the end, but you hope you are wrong and he takes us to the...

    Kings hire Luke Walton

    Not only that but when luke took over he improved the team wins by 9 games each season not counting last. Everyone making a big deal about kings winning 12 more games. Even though it's a big accomplishment, what Walton has done is pretty significant too.

    Walton fired by Lakers; Kings make offer (merged)

    Why not due your due diligence and interview more than one person. At least til after the finals. Vlade either really wants Luke or scared from the boogie experience waiting too long. Don’t want to say I had a better coaching candidate 2 days ago.

    Next head coach candidates

    I wonder if it's worth waiting to see if a playoff team fires their coach out of no where after not making the finals. Happened with Dwayne Casey and others so maybe we can get a good coach that way.

    Next head coach candidates

    I heard needing more assistants was one of the problems with Walton. Front office said he needed more to help devolop is young guys and he didn't. Look at how Randle and Russle blew up after going to other teams and how Ingram etc stalled

    Joerger Status. (He’s Fired)

    Prob cuz you can't fire all the players and vlade won't fire himself. Unless he was going to follow in magic's footsteps. Coaches seem to always be the go to scape goat. It's not really fair but life ain't fair.

    Joerger Status. (He’s Fired)

    If there were exit interviews and our core didn't want to play for joerger anymore it would explain things. If they checked out the second half of the season and won't play hard for him then why keep him. Not feel good about the firing but I'd understand it more.

    Joerger Status. (He’s Fired)

    Vlade's plan is to make it seem like he wants Luke, Lakers fear they'll miss out like with fox and keep him, we actually extend joerger and laugh at the Lakers while they keep Walton and all other coaching candidates go elsewhere. Pelicans messed with Lakers. Why not us too?

    Joerger Status. (He’s Fired)

    Damn. Firing joerger after the kings had their best season in years is a horrible look. We need stability. Joerger wasn't perfect but he was a good coach. If joerger told vlade he's ready to leave or move on and it's a mutual parting fine, but man this is crazy.

    Joerger Status. (He’s Fired)

    Agree. This one game shouldn't be a fireable offense. Did it pee off a lot of fans? Yeah. Did the second half of the season suck? Yeah. But there's still progress overall and to continue progress we need stability. For better or worse joerger is one of th best coaches we have had in awhile and...

    Joerger Status. (He’s Fired)

    I'm a big fox fan. He's my favorite player on the team. But that's a bad look right there and shows how young he is. There's ways of showing support for your coach, or tell the fans that one game won't ruin the good season or give them hope that the best is yet to come. Telling your fans that...

    [Game] Kings @ Trailblazers - Wednesday, April 10 - 7:30PT/10:30ET

    Why did he play at all vs the pelicans without ad, Randle, holiday etc? All your arguments are flawed and I'm not the only one that sees it.

    Oh you can't use that analogy because it doesn't fit his argument.
