    [Game] Kings vs Suns, Tuesday Nov. 19, 7 PM PT/10 PM ET

    Walton has put his stamp on this team already. Team defense and rebounding keeps the Kings in games. Sharing the ball, and moving without creates the offense. With Fox, Bagley, and Harry on the bench the Kings have figured a bunch of things about their team and style of play. We have to...

    Richaun Holmes Appreciation Thread

    Our man Holmes gets 20/15 against his former team. His interior defense and rebounding are making other Kings better. He has really good hands. He is a great foul shooter. It is the intensity and effort that have really helped along with great athleticism. Walton claims he knew it all...

    [Game] Kings vs. Celtics, Sunday Nov. 17th, 12:30 PM PT/3:30 PM ET

    Their record and team play suggests otherwise.

    His defense is already very good.

    The first few games Holmes struggled because he puts a lot of pressure on himself. He still plays hard, but now has slowed down some and does not press as much. All he has ever needed is more playing time and a coach that believes in him. The talent is there and now he has growing confidence...

    Hield or Bogdanovic?

    You do not necessarily need an alpha dawg to be successful. Basketball is more of a team game than almost any other. Share the ball, be unselfish, play team defense, rebound. That is how you win. Some teams have all-star players some really don't. You cannot wish Fox of Hield or anyone...

    A grade III sprain is not good. The ligaments get really stretched. My ankle was black and blue and yellow after 3-4 weeks. It takes time to rehab. The Kings with Bagley and Fox and the wrong attitude, are not as competitive as the playing without them and the right attitude. It is a team...

    Hield or Bogdanovic?

    Double negative. I never said BBIQ is of no significance, I think it is over rated at the NBA level. Hield is one of the greatest shooters around. He works on defense and has a big motor. Bogdan is a streak shooter, that can pass the ball well. He is slow afoot.

    Hield or Bogdanovic?

    Hield by a mile.

    Sitting the starters?

    A smart coach plays the guys that he thinks give his team the best chance to win. Malone is a great defensive coach. Joerger was good, but focused more on the speed of play. Walton does seem to be a defensive minded coach. I think that is the key to getting better. There is no magic formula...

    You don't "have to do" anything. The right answer is a moving target. Bagley could easily work his way back into the starting lineup. So could Dedmon. Time will tell.

    Basketball IQ

    Subtlties in the defensive scheme are coached. You have to decide if you are a switching team, a help team or a don't leave your man no matter team. Few players make it to the NBA without understanding how the game works. Some players are more coachable than others. Very few players have a...

    Dedmon is not the guy for taking 3s.

    Basketball IQ

    I am starting to cringe every time I hear this phrase. It is over used and of not much consequence. Few players make it in the NBA without it. Very few really stand out because of it. Trae Young might be one of those players.

    Richaun Holmes Appreciation Thread

    Last night against the Hawks, Holmes played some good defense and rebounded well. He did not score much but helped the Kings a lot. He has good hands for a big man. Watching him rebound and make blocks is my favorite part of watching the Kings.

    [Game] Kings at Atlanta, Friday November 8th, 4:30 PT/7:30 ET

    The Kings are playing better, but have a way to go to be really competitive. Trae Young is one of the best interior passers I have seen. The Hawks ripped the Kings inside, especially when Holmes was not on the floor. The Kings hot shooting covered up some deficiences. The two starting...

    [Game] Kings at Toronto, Wednesday Nov. 6th, 4:30 PM PT/7:30 PM ET

    You cannot fairly judge a coach in 10 games. It is difficult to do in one season.

    Bring back Boogie? (split from Grant/Boogie thread)

    We have already tried a man/child as a team leader. No thanks. Now his body is starting to crumple, making him an even worse risk. Do you feel lucky?

    Bogdanovic reportedly unhappy as a bench player

    He probably needs to get used to it.

    Bagley is out. Giles may never be in. Dedmon is over rated. Our inside help has come from an unlikely source and an over looked player. That is part of of what makes Holmes not just a good player but a great story. He is the anti-Willie I have been looking for. Now I like Kings basketball...
