    Monk is back!!!!!!!!

    I like Keon, but he's not a proven starter, imo. He's more of a player you "hope" could be a starter. He got a lot of attention, rightly so, for his defense on Curry, but there were other games where he wasn't up to par. If the Kings can get that lengthy athletic 4 to replace Barnes and Keon...

    Monk is back!!!!!!!!

    It's a good first move. Good player. Good contract. And with the signing of Monk it should simplify the board for McNair going forward. Two new starters, please!

    RIP Jerry West

    Yes, it was. And I still remember the shot - corner 20 footer.

    RIP Jerry West

    Great player and competitor. I got to see him as a kid. In one playoff game at the Fabulous Forum I saw him bury a last second shot in a win over Chicago. They didn't call him Mr. Clutch for nothing. If a player got him mad then he really went off and scored and scored and scored. Grew up...

    Why Reynolds believes Kings trading for LaVine makes sense

    As with other trades, it all depends on the asking price. His talent is not in dispute. His injury history is concerning and there's no way I'd pay top dollar. I kind of view him and Porzingis in the same vein - both very talented and impactful when healthy, but both unable to stay on the...

    [KINGS] Comments that don't warrant their own thread (Redux)

    I agree with everything except the "closer than some people think" part. Sure, it's possible, but imo not probable, and I hope McNair acts like we're not that close in his off-season moves. Fox, for example, may never take that next big step in his stamina/mental...

    Bill Walton, Former Kings Color Analyst and Father of Ex-Kings Coach, Passes Away at 71

    I'm going to miss him. What an incredible college basketball player he was, and also great in his early years in the NBA. His head-to-head matchups against Kareem were something to behold. He suffered incredible pain in his later years because of his back, nearly committed suicide because of...

    Why Isn't Sasha Playing?

    It's an embarrassing development for the Kings. A year ago they recruited him heavily and to put it plainly - he was a bust. He seemed intimidated by the length and athleticism of the NBA. A quick shot became hyper-quick in order to get the shot off. Too bad, but it's not as if the Kings...

    Woj: Kings, Mike Brown table contract discussions, far apart on deal

    This is ridiculous. The little man Vivek is exerting his power. Let's all bow to him, scrape and grovel so we can have a solid coach who insures stability for this team going forward. Whatever the exact amount of money at stake for Coach Brown is peanuts compared to contracts of lesser NBA...

    [NBA] East Playoffs, Round Two

    He had 20-10-5 last night against Boston. I'd gladly take that. Who would you want? Or maybe, who could you possibly get? Holmgren is off the table, obviously.

    [NBA] East Playoffs, Round Two

    But I thought the Kings had the worst shooter in the league? Sasha. Right?:p I get what you're saying, but you know how big guys typically develop late. I wouldn't mind giving him a try.

    “RUN IT BACK!” / Monte needs to fix this.

    Timing is everything. At the end of last season Heurter's value was up, up, up (and of course few wanted to trade him). Now after this recent trash season and his commensurate plummet in trade value, who thinks that he's going to be traded this off-season for anything of value? McNair might be...

    [NBA] East Playoffs, Round Two

    The worst in the league? Hardly. Though if Monte wants to employ that exaggeration in negotiations to get him for something reasonable, I'm game.

    [NBA] East Playoffs, Round Two

    If they get terribly disenchanted with their team, I'd love to see Evan Mobley in a Kings' uniform.

    [NBA] East Playoffs, Round Two

    I'm curious why he wouldn't want to be here. That always sounded bogus to me, like a weak excuse from someone in higher management. I think Heurter would be totally redundant and would be gone. Monk would still do his 6th man thing, complement DDV, and would be an asset. I think DDV is...

    [NBA] East Playoffs, Round Two

    It kills me to see DDV play like a freaking stud in these playoff games. If only the Kings could have managed to keep him. He's a stud on defense, a killer making shots under pressure, who has a high BBIQ. The guy is a total winner as far as I am concerned and the Kings could use him as a...

    “RUN IT BACK!” / Monte needs to fix this.

    The video was informative on the numbers, but unfortunately doesn't have the conclusion for which I'd hoped. Bringing back Monk is status quo. And although I'm a big Murray fan, I don't rest easy to know that any significant progress on this team is going to come from him taking a very big...

    Then I think it's highly likely there won't be "issues."

    Following Potential *2024* Draftees

    Well, he hasn't had a bust so far, so I'd consider that a positive. And "work" can mean that an asset is traded for another asset that is more complementary.

    Following Potential *2024* Draftees

    Yes. It's all about value. If other teams don't see Mitchell's value, then you keep him. If they overestimate his value, then you trade him. I don't see Monte predetermining any move or direction before he has a firm handle on where other teams want to go and what, if anything, they are...
