    [NBA] Eastern Conference Finals

    As someone that was critical of Siakam in GM7 of the last series and the 1st two games of this series, I thought he played well on the whole tonight. He had a huge block on Brook Lopez in the second OT. As poorly as Milwaukee shot the ball, I’m actually surprised they were in it at the end with...

    Fox as a finalist for MIP!

    I should have been more specific. I’m talking recent events. When things matter more. Like game 7 and the 1st 2 games of the conference finals. He’s been marginalized.

    Also didn't realize the NBA publically released the actually ping pong drawing. Here's the one from 2018 when the KINGS landed #2:

    I saw this today and didn't see it posted here: Could you imagine what it'd have been like around here had that pick landed #4?

    Fox as a finalist for MIP!

    He might win the MIP regular season award, but he certainly ain't doing all that much in the postseason. Kawhi and Lowry need more help.

    Trae Young for MIP? Or ROY? Or something?

    You did tell us. You were the only one I recall being steadfast about drafting Trae Young. I don’t think he’ll win ROY because his stellar play started too late into the season and #77 was consistent throughout. Plus, #77 has more hype and name recognition. But in the 2nd half of the season, I...

    Tyreke Evans Watch 2K18

    Wow. So bummed to read about this. Just 10 years ago, this kid was expected to be the cornerstone of the KINGS franchise for 10-15 years. Now he's out of the league.

    West Coast in November

    Assuming your driving for some of the trip? Vegas is a 4 hr drive from LA and to get to the Grand Canyon from Vegas is roughly the same. My sister and nieces just visited Vegas back in December when my bro in law was working on a project there and they went on a day trip to the Canyon...

    West Coast in November

    People have mentioned visiting ‘wine’ country, but, if you’re into craft beer at all, NorCal and the Sacramento area has developed into a kind of a hotbed. There are tons of great breweries and tap rooms to visit. Let me know if that’s an interest at all and I can provide you with a...

    The Sharks!!!

    They might have won the game anyway. Who knows. As a KINGS fan and a fan of other teams that have consistently been on the other side of these types of calls, I'm not gonna apologize or even feel sorry about it. I saw that Peaches posted something about the Sharks needing to thank the...

    I'm one that's been making saying it. Not a certainty, of course. I just firmly believe Ja Morant can be pretty darn good and I'm not sold that Zion is going to be as elite as many others do. I see a Blake Griffin, Vince Carter, Dominique Wilkins type of guy, which is a HOF caliber player but...

    They might have tried, but the KINGS didn’t have to agree to both. That’s likely how Vlade didn’t get protection on this 2019 pick. Philly wouldn’t do it with the protection and he caved. Perhaps NO wouldn’t have done the trade w/o the protection, but maybe they would have. Nobody knew who...

    I forgot that David Griffin is the Pels current VP of basketball ops. How many #1 picks has that dude been in charge of now? 3 since 2010? It seems as if the key to landing the top pick is employing David Griffin.

    Well, you’d have thought that the KINGS would have had top 3 or top 1 protection on the pick they just surrendered to Boston via Philly but they didn’t. So anything is possible. :)

    NBA/Kings Draft Lottery Thread

    Today’s draft results bring some interesting possibilities to the table. Could NO trade AD to the Lakers for the #4 pick and some combination of Lonzo, Kuzma, Ingram and Hart? Zion Williamson, #4, and 3 of those 4 Lakers players would be a nice start on a rebuild. Assuming Memphis selects Ja...

    Kings should bid on K. Oubre

    Preach brotha! I didn’t want to stomp on their dreams, but I fully agree with you. I almost was going to compare him to Willie in terms of tantalizing physical talent that tends to disappoint. That’s why I made the comment about the KINGS being stocked up with frustrating players. I don’t get...

    Yeah, the Pels getting the top pick as a way of keeping AD surely isn’t sketchy... Soon as I saw it was between NO and Memphis I knew the Griz had zero chance. At least they didn’t give the LeBron’s the top pick. They shouldn’t have even landed 4. But the NBA has to NBA.

    I swear, with my teams, it always seems like the only time they can overcome insurmountable odds is when it's something bad. If the KINGS owned the pick, you know there's no chance they get #1. But since they don't the pick, it's much more likely to happen -- despite the same 'odds'.

    The All-Purpose LOL Lakers thread

    I wonder how much % of Lakers she currently owns? I know originally all 6 Buss children received 11%. What I don’t know is whether she bought out or acquired any of the others. If so, she could be worth considerably more than 500M since the Lakers are reportedly worth upwards of 4B. AEG owns...
