    Kings Roster next season

    Then it's called re-iterating something from the same source you used to smooth it over initially for the benefit of your old coach who is now your new GM. ;)

    Players that I would target with the 9th pick:

    I like him but there's not much evidence he's going to be a star if that's what people are thinking. He could certainly develop but the good thing about him is his floor is pretty high since he does play defense and has a super solid physical profile. The concern is whether he can he play center...

    Kings Roster next season

    That's called having your old coach become your new GM and them attempting to smooth things over now that the dust has settled, lol.

    [SI] De'Aaron Fox and the Kings Are Building for the Future

    Who knows because we've seen how much injuries and a bad coach can drag down a team on their own, and that's exactly the range the others mentioned are getting their teams. I think this team had no excuses not to make the playoffs this last year based on their team build, talent, and depth. Even...

    [SI] De'Aaron Fox and the Kings Are Building for the Future

    Yeah, great point, the NBA is hot and cold on players like never before because they bend to every single trend. Really since Magic/Bird they've designed the rules of the game to fit their superstars but they are really stretching things now because they have eliminated large aspects of the game...

    [SI] De'Aaron Fox and the Kings Are Building for the Future

    It doesn't change the reality that PG defense is of utmost importance unless you have some unreal talent base of a superteam variety. That or luck is on your side in matchups or other teams injuries help you out. And I think Luka is a bit different than your average PG who usually struggles...

    [SI] De'Aaron Fox and the Kings Are Building for the Future

    First tell the coach to SPREAD. THE. DAMN. FLOOR. and prioritize catch and shoot spot shots. Buddy didn't turn himself into a dribble, dribble pick and roll PG. There have been pleas in the media from him to go back to catch and shoot post Waltons hire. When Walton does spread the floor what...

    [SI] De'Aaron Fox and the Kings Are Building for the Future

    Win what? So far we're seeing if you are sieve defensively at PG or don't have an era busting superstar trio you probably get somewhere around the 2nd round or maybe conference finals if you're lucky and that's about that.

    Bol Bol

    If this team is really trying to make the playoffs I don't see them moving any core piece to a team in the West are who directly competing in that middle range of the playoff race. As for Denvers view of Bol Bol, who knows what their strategy or opinion on him his is. He's looked really good in...

    Players that I would target with the 9th pick:

    And never underestimate positional value relative to where the game is at currently. Luka was never not going to be a top pick and plays a position and a style that the league is built for right now. Sengun's argument for being drafted that high is he could be the next Jokic. Maybe, however...

    NBA Playoffs, Round Two

    And if the Nets slide right to a ring what does that say about the league? There was already some article from the GM standpoint about how the players have too much control. Harden pouted his way right to the only team he was wanting to go to and the Rockets really didn't get ****. Sure, the NBA...

    NBA Playoffs, Round Two

    Vivek goes for the smooth talking politicians. Vlade, Malone... they don't have a chance with Vivek getting talked up by underling lawyer/agent/stat nerd types.

    NBA Playoffs, Round Two

    Knowing how much Malone cares about toughness and defense it has to hurt him to watch Jokic getting burned that bad on switches and pick and roll since the modern defensive rules are pure garbage for anyone that's not athletic and a wing since the big is the one suffering the result of them not...

    Fire Walton

    Then again, with the Kings history prospective targets might end up getting free money out of the deal. That's the one thing Vivek probably has to use as a negotiating tactic. ;) The concern now is that if they stick with Walton, he doesn't turn things around, and they let him go sometime next...

    Fire Walton

    Sounds like coach Bud is on the hot seat. Legit coaches hitting the market and more to come while some possible targets are going to be getting other jobs, and the Kings? Sticking with Luke before even seeing what the market might be. What a disaster.

    NBA Playoffs, Round Two

    I hope the Jazz don't panic. They have a once in a lifetime chance to make the finals since the off year LeBron decided to show up and brought along his buddy injury prone AD with him. Long series and comebacks fit into the personality types of Kawhi and PG13 though. The question is will they...

    NBA Playoffs, Round Two

    Lue is horrible and only one letter away from Luke, coincidence? I think not! Kawhi and PG don't have the attitude to put him in his place like LeBron will with a mediocre coach. I will say though, it's scary how similar bad coaches are. You could literally start a support group for players...

    NBA Playoffs, Round Two

    Watching the teams still in the playoffs does nothing but reinforce the fact that you better have size and some level of defense on the wing. Otherwise you're just kidding yourself. I see no 4 G lineups with the tallest being 6'4" beaten to a pulp by other teams, lol.

    NBA Playoffs, Round Two

    Snyder is bar none the best coach in the game right now and he needs to wrangle his guys in here.

    NBA Playoffs, Round Two

    Lue might be slipping below Walton on the coaching rankings after all. He should be using Cuz as a 10-16 mpg bench scorer to hopefully get Kawhi and PG13 rest at the same time. Slow down the game, iso to Cuz, control the clock. Keep it close enough then bring your superstars back fresh.
