    I'll never forgive Petrie for ... (split)

    Reke played a lot of mins for New Orleans and Memphis. The only season where he didn't hover around 30 mins was 16-17 when he was coming back from his injury and last season when his game suddenly declined. .

    Kings do not pick up Giles and Caleb team options for next year!

    If Giles has poor work ethic, the result will show on the court. So, we'll see. Quite frankly, I have a hard time believing that a guy who managed to come back from three knee surgeries would have poor work ethic. .

    I'll never forgive Petrie for ... (split)

    As a PG, Rubio is better. Because Reke is not a PG. As a basketball player, Reke is better than Rubio. .

    I'll never forgive Petrie for ... (split)

    Reke is not and never should have been a PG. He simply isn't suited. I always thought his best role is a sixth man surrounded by four guys who don't need the ball. .

    I'll never forgive Petrie for ... (split)

    We are not having a debate about who is better at staying on the court. If it is, I would say Rubio is better. .

    I'll never forgive Petrie for ... (split)

    That's because Reke was injured. He was part of the rotation and often in the starting lineup during his career. I don't understand what rookie contract has to do with anything and why it should be disregarded because he wasn't paid like a veteran. .

    I'll never forgive Petrie for ... (split)

    Using your logic, Rubio is also much better than Emanuel Ginobili because Ginobili rarely started. Reke's career mins per game is 30+ in 10 years. That does not sound like someone who was "only occasionally part of the rotation". I am not saying Rubio isn't good in some areas. Obviously, he...

    I'll never forgive Petrie for ... (split)

    Probably the same place where Kobe is playing. Just because a player is not playing, doesn't mean he wasn't good. .

    I'll never forgive Petrie for ... (split)

    Without doing any research, I'd venture to say Rubio's 38% career FG% is the lowest of all full-time starting PG in the last two decades. That's pitiful. Rubio is not better than Reke, let alone much better. And I don't like Reke. You can argue that Rubio managed to stay on the court...

    I'll never forgive Petrie for ... (split)

    After watching the Toronto game, I have to say it: One of the things I will never forgive Petrie for is turning down the offer of Kyle Lowry for the #5 pick. And then used that pick on Thomas Robinson. At a time when the Kings didn't have a PG but did have a couple of bigs. Decision like...

    I'll never forgive Petrie for ... (split)

    He was Petrie's pick. Geoff was absolutely glowing after the pick was made, I don't think he is that good of an actor. I am fine with the pick, I didn't want either Rubio or Flynn. In hindsight, I'd still rather have Reke than those two. Yes, the rumor at the time is that Jonny Flynn was...

    Kenny Thomas vs Jason Thompson

    Easy. Jason Thompson. I still remember that game in Orlando where JT absolutely owned the undersized Tobias Harris. To the point where the helpless Magic send Glen Davis to double team JT, leaving an amused Demarcus Cousins wide open for the easiest hoop of his life. It was such a defining...

    What about Burks ?

    Barnes was brought in to matchup with the big wing players that other teams threw at us, for which we had few answers aside from Justin Jackson's occasional shine. It's not necessary that he plays the 3, Barnes can play the 4 and still matchup with a long athletic wing in this era of...

    What about Burks ?

    I think the facts would disagree with your point. The Kings tried to sign Zach Lavine in the off season to form a Fox/Lavine/Bogi lineup. The FO have been chasing that big guard for a while. After they got Burks, they promptly moved Bogi to the 3. They even bypassed Doncic in the draft (not...

    What about Burks ?

    The Kings put Barnes at the 4 and Bogi at the 3. Then they tried to have Burks played the Bogi role in the 2nd unit. Neither plan worked out.

    What about Burks ?

    I don't know what your point is.

    What about Burks ?

    Burks got his chance. A couple games and a few possessions was all it takes for one to see he wasn't going to bring what the Kings needed. Now, that doesn't mean he's a bad player, I personally think he'd thrive in a different system, but he was a bad fit. It's possible the new Kings coach...

    What about Burks ?

    The Kings wanted a big guard who can handle and slash. I believe Burks was the consolation price for not being able to get Jeremy Lin. The grand plan at that time was to move Bogi to the starting lineup and let this big guard take over for Bogi in the 2nd unit. It was a failure on both...

    Joerger

    At the post game conference, this is what Joerger said: Tough night for us, didn't come out and play with force... again. ..... You have to come out and play right from the jump. We've talked about it..... You have to do your work early - try to push team around and try to pressure them out...

    Joerger

    I think we need to be fair. What Joerger was alluding to is that the Kings came out lazy and lackadaisical against a very good team when they had talked in the locker room that they needed to come out ready and firing to have any chance against them. He was saying the Kings already has a size...
