    Allegations against Luke Walton (split from new coach thread)

    Like I said its really not fair to speculate, but I'll be keeping an eye on whether or not divorce papers are filed in short order.

    Allegations against Luke Walton (split from new coach thread)

    If this part is true, I have an alternate theory but its totally inappropriate to speculate.

    Allegations against Luke Walton (split from new coach thread)

    The timeline really bothers me. Also if it's true that she's good friends with his wife it makes the "he always hugged me every time I saw him" thing a lot less creepy than it appeared as first reported. Either way, the initial behavior is totally unacceptable but I'm inclined to believe it's a...

    Joerger Status. (He’s Fired)

    Sorry if you felt slighted Kingster, I was agreeing with the sentiment of VF's post that too many use the benefits of hindsight and have already seen a few too many setting it up with the Walton hire as well. I can't speak for the others but I assume it was the same thing.

    I don't know. Obviously it's not the NFL. And the NBA has had some highly regarded non-white coaches, dating back decades. By the same token it is helpful in adding new blood to a very small circle and so it's not the worst thing in the world. Though objectively it is more than a little annoying...

    I was a bit shocked that there is no equivalent to the Rooney rule in the NBA.

    Kings hire Luke Walton

    The assumption was that Williams was leaking his own personal agenda to displace Vlade when the reality may have been he was just being a sieve with no agenda, which would also explain why they waited until the end of the season to let him go. Joerger's victory dance did coach no favors but...

    Not giving any clicks to Stephen A because... Stephen A was praising this on Saturday and condemning it now? They broke the mold with that guy.

    Joerger Status. (He’s Fired)

    There's at least two people here giving them a pretty serious run for their money.

    Kings hire Luke Walton

    I'm saying that Luke was Kerr's top assistant from day one and that they both come from the same coaching tree. Rightly or wrong, this team has a lot of Warriors influence and short of hiring Kerr himself, this was the best choice to finish the vision. If you factor in his dad and all the other...

    Kings hire Luke Walton

    This is a young man who learned the game from Lute Olsen and Phil Jackson, two of the finest coaches in modern history. His father is a college basketball legend, who learned from John Wooden and Jack Ramsey and is one of the former's greatest living acolytes. He began his NBA coaching career...

    Kings hire Luke Walton

    Well it's a good thing that kind of astute analysis only comes from random fans on the interwebz and not people I am taking seriously.

    Kings hire Luke Walton

    Everybody can't win 48 games (though it does recall a fun meme from r.s.p-b in the 90s), so I'd be stunned if that doesn't get us in. Still if we fall a game short but improve to over 45 wins? I'm not going to be too critical. Although I think it's fair to say that we absolutely should have won...

    Kings hire Luke Walton

    I have posted nothing but admiration for Walton for years here. He got a completely raw deal this year and I felt bad for him. None of that meant that I necessarily wanted him as Kings coach, but I have advocated that he return to Arizona if Miller can't get out of his mess there (here and on...

    Kings hire Luke Walton

    I just want to talk about this one thing, I have for a few days now but since you highlighted it: We did a nice solid move to Shump to ship him to a contender after everything he did for us. He was not going to get big minutes any longer with our newly acquired SF. This is the kind of move that...

    Thank You Coach Joerger Thread!

    Thank you for making us Sacramento Proud again and cool to be a Kings fan again. I've seen a lot more of us out in the open this year. Best of luck wherever you go, hopefully somewhere where you and your FO are in tune.

    Kings hire Luke Walton

    I think this is quite different than when we hired Joerger as when we made that hire, despite it moving quickly, we had already been spurned by 3-4 other candidates publicly, and apparently according to the rumors of some, Walton himself less publicly. Joerger was not relieved of his duties...

    Joerger Status. (He’s Fired)

    Bag's dad posted an hallelujah type post immediately once the news dropped so we know that's real. And Vlade said if the players had spoken up Joerger may have stayed. So I think there is a lot of it right there. Do you mean in fan circles? Joerger burned his bridges in two front offices...

    Well I was alright with this until I saw Stephen A. Smith is all for it. :eek:

    Kings hire Luke Walton

    Wasn't he hired as Lakers coach just before we hired Joerger? It's quite possible he was our first choice 3 years ago and that's why this went down so fast.
