    General Grant Napear termination discussion

    I’m not sure I’m following your point. Who are you saying appeared to feel protected and entitled?

    They may have resulted from one incident, but they are not just about that one incident.

    General Grant Napear termination discussion

    It is extreme to make the point clear. All respect, but I guess we just see the point differently.

    General Grant Napear termination discussion

    You are taking the analogy too literally. It’s a comic strip that tries to make the general point more obvious.

    General Grant Napear termination discussion

    True, there are bad seeds everywhere, but the BLM movement is not about litigating any one particular relationship or interaction. Can one find an example of a black cop beating a white man? I’m sure one can. However, to make an argument at that level is completely missing the point and leads to...

    The Harry Giles option conundrum

    well, if we are really worried about losing him, is it really an overestimate if someone else also sees his potential and gives him a decent offer. It's not like 3 years for 15M total is a huge commitment for most teams. However, to a guy with his injury history might be worth it to grab as...

    What's gonna happen when Holmes, Parker, Bagley come back?

    You’re missing the point. It does not matter that he’s currently not as good as Beli

    What's gonna happen when Holmes, Parker, Bagley come back?

    And that’s the rub. As he is currently constructed, Bags is not a good fit in the current nba. However, he has the tools and needs time to see if he can become one. We are very likely a worse team when we give him court time to try to figure it out. Injuries don’t give him court time. Its...

    Kings trade Dedmon for Parker and Len (merged)

    I have no idea what Hawks are doing with the dedmond acquisition. You also have to consider Collins in that front court rotation, who I guess they now view exclusively as a PF.

    Dear Vlade, Surprise Us. Trade Bogi Today.

    When your team sucks, nobody likes any of the contracts on your team (save maybe an obvious bargain like Holmes). You pay the players you think will lead us to some wins and we go from there. From my perspective, there is a good reason most of the competent teams around the league were rumored...

    [The Ringer] The Kings’ Road to the Deadline Could Dictate the Title Chase

    :confused: It seemed to be right on the money to me. quite a bit more nuanced than we'd normally get from a national writer.

    The Harry Giles option conundrum

    I really don’t think there’s any third level thinking on this by management. For whatever reason they decided they wanted to see if he’s worth the max salary they are allowed to pay him next year and I guess betting nobody else will offer something better or that he would take less to leave. The...

    Kings putting Bogs into starting lineup instead of Hield

    I’m not sure it’s anything more than just shaking things up, but with that said....I think they know they want Bogi and I suspect most smart front offices around the league believe he’s the more valuable of the two players. If he can excel in a starting role in his natural 2 guard role, it will...

    Kings putting Bogs into starting lineup instead of Hield

    cool....at least this generates some interest for me to watch the game. Curious to see how buddy handles this.

    [Game] Kings @ Bulls - Friday, Jan. 24 - 5PT/8ET

    I would guess Fox, Buddy, Bogi, Barnes, Dedmon

    [Game] Kings @ Pistons - Wednesday, Jan. 22 - 4PT/7ET

    Amen. I think Walton has already lost the team and it’s a catastrophic problem for the franchise. A few weeks ago I said I could accept this as a transition year under Walton. Learn a new system and establish the “Kings way” of how this team would be run for years to come. While disappointed...

    Portland trading Kent Bazemore to the Kings

    [ i don’t disagree. Just saying personally doesn’t matter all that much to me at the end of the day. Ariza or Bazemore....both will get killed on this board eventually for missing wide open shots.

    Portland trading Kent Bazemore to the Kings

    Agree. This doesn’t really move the needle. Fox, Bagley, Buddy, Holmes, Bogi. If that squad can’t play more than a few minutes together without getting injured we stand no chance.

    Portland trading Kent Bazemore to the Kings

    I would agree. I personally have already written off the season but we are only 4.5 games out of the eighth spot so wouldn’t be surprised if we do something stupid to jeopardize the future.

    Portland trading Kent Bazemore to the Kings

    Didn’t the suns get Kelly Oubte for Ariza last year? Too bad we couldn’t have replicated that LOL
