    Is Willie Cauley-Stein still an option at center for Sacramento Kings?

    He is proving he hasn't changed a bit. I had come around to wanting him to stay... but he just reminded me he is whacked out. No thanks.

    New Season Ticket Holders?

    I hate to seem like a bad attitude, but the perks are negligible. They make it seem like you will get valuable pre-sales to shows at G1C but even in the odd occasion where their link and password DOES work, it is a very low tier of “preferred” seats and it is ultimately like no benefit at all...

    Trade for the #4 pick?

    To the OP, which of our guys would you contemplate moving - that would be perceived as being worth #4 for the Pels? I would not move any of our top 3 for anything (Fox, Bagley, Buddy) so the question seems kind of moot. I don't think Pels would give up #4 for any lesser player than those 3.

    Tobias Harris

    I hope you are right about this, but for a backwards selfish reason of my own. If there is a consensus that Leonard and Durant are the only two max-worthy guys... that would suggest maybe the Kings can grab Jimmy Butler with a max - which you're saying would be a clear overpay - which means...

    Is Willie Cauley-Stein still an option at center for Sacramento Kings?

    I'm so torn. I feel like I get Willie's positive attributes and when he's focused and committed - he is plenty good enough. He can be a darn good player. But.... when in your career are you ever going to be more focused and committed than your contract year? And he wasn't.. not enough. Too...

    Grant Napear/Boogie

    Some day somebody will explain why Boogie has so much tenacious support in Sac. I don't get it. When he wore the uniform he was my guy and I rooted for him and supported him, and shoo'd off questions from my friends like "what is #15's problem?". But now that he's gone it is like a sigh of...

    How would you spend the Kings $35 million cap space this summer?

    My plan A would be to throw the kitchen sink at Jimmy Butler, and if you get him - call it good. Keep Willie. Plan B can be anything else. I'm not a "we can get Beverly" believer. I think he and Montrezl are too much a part of the fabric of what the Clippers are. If they let guys like that...

    Sacramento sports radio programming changes?

    I've completely switched over to ESPN AM and it is a million times better than KHTK. I'll still listen when Grant & Doug are on - I like that show. I truly can't stand the morning show and was really glad when I discovered 1320 ESPN as an alternative. I feel bad for Low Down getting the...

    Kings will no longer have cheerleaders

    pretty obvious pandering to two specific sub-groups of fans

    Allegations against Luke Walton (split from new coach thread)

    It is really eerie how this has quieted down so abruptly. I don't like not knowing who the coach will be :(

    Allegations against Luke Walton (split from new coach thread)

    Even if witnesses emerge and say that Kelli confided in them about this when it happened, that moves it out of straight “he said - she said” territory and makes it important to sever ties with Luke. Hope mods permit my comment

    Allegations against Luke Walton (split from new coach thread)

    If they do have that power, I wouldn't mind if they exercised it. Is it a sure thing that the contract provides that the Kings can void it based on some bad publicity like this? Maybe Luke could sue Kings if they tried it?

    Allegations against Luke Walton (split from new coach thread)

    Want to make sure I understand... the "she said" part of it... standing on its own - seems like enough to win a civil case? Every rich man should shudder. If it is her story - take it or leave it... then that could literally happen to any man on the planet who has any money. There has got...

    Allegations against Luke Walton (split from new coach thread)

    2 years later, no police report at the time - Luke deserves a presumption of innocence regardless of what Matt George or any of the other other woke people say on twitter.

    Kings hire Luke Walton

    I never saw more exciting basketball last season than when Marvin and Harry were on the floor together. I don't know if it is sound tactics in the big picture, but it is beautiful when it is clicking.

    Kings hire Luke Walton

    I agree with this, and while I've made a habit of "getting on board" (like with Bagley)... and I am on board with Luke... I think we could look back at this as a big mistake. Lets say Dave is an insufferable prick with his colleagues (gm and staff, etc - I would be surprised if he kissed...

    Kings hire Luke Walton

    1 was a hypothetical fail. In reality it was nothing. You could say it was too gambley... but it was largely a wager that we would be so good by 2019 that the unprotected first wouldn’t hurt. And it looks like about 95% likely to come out that way

    Post National Media Coverage Here

    I don't believe Bobby Jackson is an important coach on the team. I think he's window dressing from the good old days. I wasn't "trying to say" anything. I was saying it. I don't think the Kings' startling progress this past season is primarily a product of Bobby's coaching. I think it is...

    Joerger Status. (He’s Fired)

    there was that very odd game against Miami where we stopped them for like the last 6 minutes or something. But I don't know what happened to the defensive heart after that
