    [Game] Kings vs. Blazers, 1/13/21 7pm PST, 10pm EST

    I’m so GD sick of this overrated Portland team. Constantly bailed out by a broken officiating system that only exists to create stars out of player’s that aren’t really that. Half of Lillard‘s FT attempts were flat out gifts. Nothing more. You can watch CJ McCollum catch a pass of a screen and...

    Harrison Barnes 2020/21

    Just wanted to spotlight HB’s play so far this season. HB catches a lot of flak around these parts because he’s not a super star, but he is still a damn good all-around player. This season his production is up almost across the board. His shooting numbers are phenomenal. Over 53% overall and...

    Sure would have been nice having a healthy L-Train circa 1996 when the KINGS first started qualifying for the postseason with Mitch, Grant, Rooney, etc then again at the beginning of the CWebb era. L-Train was a damned good player before the knees became troublesome.

    Yeah, L-Train was the first player I ever recall suffering from “Nintendo-itis”. Which was a real thing! (Damn, that d-pad sure took it’s toll on your thumb!) Back then it was sure was a novelty having a pro player show up on an injury report due to a video game related injury LMAO. Who knew...

    Tyrese Haliburton

    You reminded me of something I was thinking about a few days back. And that’s how rebounds from guards (and triple doubles) are overrated in this day and age. Don’t get me wrong, you want every rebound you can get. Especially those long rebounds that often result in offensive rebounds and 2nd...

    From what I’ve seen and heard over the years, every regional broadcast team has a color analyst just like that. Or very similar. Definitely homerish. Which fans of opposing teams watching via game pass don’t tend to like. But it’s clearly about what the regional home fans think. And DC seems to...

    Gave HOU team 2 of their 3 wins too.

    Eh, that’s pure speculation with no real way of knowing. Players get serious injuries all the time. Some have a history of injury beforehand, some don’t. Some have heavy usage, some don’t. Everyone is different. It’s easy to say it was coming after the fact. Bogi could have been injury free...

    Even hinting that the injury still occurs if he stayed with the KINGS is silly talk.

    [Game] Kings vs. Raptors, 1/8/2021 7pm PST, 10pm EST

    So, I haven’t reviewed the game yet. But I kept tabs online. How KINGS is it that at one point in Q4 they were shooting over 60% for the game and well over 40% from three YET were down close to 20 points?! To a team that was 1-6 coming in, no less. Coming off TWO losses to a Rockets team that...

    Only go need when the talent/skill is even or close to it. Otherwise BPA always. I thought most had learned that lesson when Portland got burned taking Bowie over Jordan because they had Drexler. Even if Bowie hadn’t become injured, that decision likely cost Portland at least a few...

    Yeah, I forgot there was the injury prone tag floating around out there.

    Tyrese Haliburton

    Since this thread is specific to Tyrese Haliburton, I’ll pose this question here. Is this the one player, even if it ends up being for a short time, that has ALL KINGS fans in universal agreement? Typically each player on the team has a faction of fans that love them, hate them, or just...

    [Game] Kings vs. Bulls, 1/6/2021, 7pm PST, 10pm EST

    Based upon his attitude, aptitude, self-awareness, maturity, IQ, and natural abilities — I believe he’s destined to develop into a lot more than that. I don’t see Tyrese uncomfortable doing anything. He seems ready, willing, and able to do anything the team needs him to do in order to win.

    If Buddy isn’t making shots — the one thing he is supposed to be elite at doing — he is close to useless. IDK what happened to the guy making 3’s at over a 40% clip. Or the guy early on in his career that would grab a decent amount of timely rebounds. Every once in a while he’ll make a pass or...

    When someone is starving to death, a saltine cracker seems like a t-bone steak. That’s the only excuse I can come up with. ;)

    BTW, where are all the Otto Porter fan boys? He sure looked awesome tonight. I never understood the over-the-top, never ending interest in that guy. Decent player, nothing more.

    Eh, I think he just prefers to get others involved. He even stated as much in his PC. Talked about being taught early on that a PG’s job is basically that of a ’mom’ — to make everyone happy. I believe as he gains experience and more clout and respect with his teammates, he’ll learn when to...

    The last one he hit to seal the game was mighty impressive. Not only did he have to evade the defender with an escape dribble, but he was drifting toward the baseline. By the time he actually watched the shot go through, he was well beyond the baseline. Is it too soon to demand that Tyrese be...

    Kings upgrade rookie Tyrese Haliburton's status for Wednesday's game against Chicago Bulls (per Sacramento Bee)

    If he plays, I’ll watch live. If not, it’s record then review later fast-fwd style. When you watch that way, it actually boggles the mind how long you can fast forward in many stretches until the KINGS actually score points again. All the while the other team rarely stops scoring. Maddening.
