    D(G)-League thread

    Sorry but it's hard for me to call it the G League. Since when does a sponsor change the entire name of a sports league? Anyway... Jack Cooley with 36pts and 11 reb!!! Goes 15-17 from the field and 1-1 from three. Wow. Jakarr Sampson adds in 16 and 9 Former popular Kentucky star Aaron...

    How Cousins is used in the offense

    There's a lot of Cousins threads going on right now but this is something I've been wondering for a while and it doesn't seem to fit in any of the current threads. How come Cousins never gets any easy baskets? Now there's a lot of you here that pay better attention to basketball fundamentals...

    Guess Jerry Reynolds' new nicknames

    Lets see if anyone can correctly guess any of the goofy Jerry Reynoldisms for these new guys. In my mind, last years winner was Ben McSplashlemore. He had a slight pause halfway through saying it, as if he realized how ridiculous it was. Once the season starts we can look back and see who got...

    Lets talk Isaiah Thomas..

    Lately it's been getting on my nerves reading all the IT bashing that's going on here. It seems like a few members came out with this anti IT agenda and it's spread throughout the board like wildfire. People are saying that he's a ball hog, that he doesn't pass, he takes too many shots, he's...

    Defense - is it players or coaching?

    I'm looking at the basketball-reference.com DRtg which is basically an estimation of how many points a player gives up per 100 possessions. A couple of anomalies stick out with this stat. I'm not sure of the legitimacy of it, but these points are interesting. Out of all the players who have...

    Keith Smart's defensive scheme

    Anyone else tired of seeing teams shoot wide open three's on us every game? The only time we should be leaving guys wide open is when another player got beat so badly that the defender is forced to double to prevent the easy basket. In that case it's going to be a 2 point basket anyway, so I see...

    Someone sell me on Thomas Robinson

    I know were only 10 or so games into his rookie season but I gotta say, I just don't see any above average skills that made him the 5th pick, let alone a guy who can be a contributor in the NBA. His size is the first thing that grabs my attention. He's supposed to be a PF but he looks more like...

    No one on this team can shoot other than Thorton

    Our guards and small forwards can't shoot from 3 or much of anywhere on the court for that matter. Our big men can't shoot from 10ft or even finish layups or put backs half the time. All they can do is rebound but rebounding does nothing for you if you can't get the ball in the hoop. We're...

    Donte, JT and Pooh

    I'll forever root for these guys for going back out there after the game and saying goodbye to the fans left standing. It just doesn't get any classier than that. I wish the entire team would have gone out there and embraced the fans but I guess they were too busy. They might not have had the...

    Francisco Garcia a drama queen?

    Well there aren't many threads going on right now so I'll make this one just for the sake of discussion. Is it just me or is this guy really dramatic on the court when he gets hurt? I've never seen a King's player lay on the ground with his hands over his eyes so many times in a year. It seems...

    Jones and Douby

    I'm starting to like these guys off the bench. Both are very scrappy. Neither of them can finish at the basket worth a damn but they still seem to contribute every time out. Does Douby play really good defense or does he just get flashy steals once or twice a game? I can't really tell. Jones...

    Post Ron last year vs. This year

    Whats up with the team? I remember last year, after Ron was aquired, the King's gave up 93 points a game for the rest of the year. So whats the difference between last year and this year? Is it the coach? Is it the absence of Bonzi? I don't seem to have the eye for detail like some of you. Can...

    Pollard comments on Peja

    "Peja says he feels very good. He is especially happy because he is the best-looking player on the team. Personally, I'm happy to be reunited with the best-loooking man in the NBA and I will continue to try and pull down as many rebounds as possible." Gotta love Scot

    Starting PF Kenny Thomas or Shareef Abdur Rahim?

    When Shareef is all and well again, who do you think should be our starting PF? We have two different types of players. Kenny is an athletic hard charger who goes after rebounds, takes the ball to the rim and can also make the elbow jumper on a regular basis. SAR is more methodical, has quick...

    Whats up with Brad Miller?

    I used to love him. He had an awesome outside shot, was good at getting tough 3 point plays, passes well, and at least attempted to get down and dirty under the rim. This year its almost like hes out of his league. He can still pass and shoot, but he looks so weak and soft in the paint. Hes...

    Am I the only one whos not excited?

    Whether the Kings made it to Game 7 of the conference finals, or lost in the first round, I still had more fun watching them these last 6 or so years than I ever have watching a sports team. It wasnt the winning that kept me watching. It was the players. Almost all of whom (aside from Webber)...

    Thanks Petrie

    For trading away the guys we have known to love for this crap team we have now. Sure we may have some injuries, but we have ALWAYS played with injuries in the past and still managed to be one of the top 3 teams in the league every year. This year these guys get greedy and think that they are...

    King's sightings?

    Today a friend and I were driving through the Chuck E Cheese parking lot by Sunrise mall and hes like "dang that guy is really tall". So I slowed and let him and his family pass. And I was like "that guy looks like Brad Miller". Then a few seconds later it clicked in my head and I knew it had to...

    Ex-Kings

    Do any of you guys still follow some of the ex-Kings players that are still around? I still route for a lot of the guys, and teams they are on. Hedo is quietly becoming Steve Francis' 2nd hand man down in Orlando. Putting up nearly 20 points a game lately. Damon Jones is becoming quite the...
