Okay, this is about as ugly as I want to see. There's no rhythm, no flow. When even Bogs is making dumb mistakes, you have to wonder if it was something in the water? ;)

Can't blame Joerger for this one. Right now, I don't know what else he could do to try and light a fire under his players, short of actually lighting a fire.

Dude looked like he was playing in quicksand last season. He looked done.

And obviously every team in the league felt roughly the same as he's close to a minimum deal, if I recall correctly.
Yeah he's healthy now but he played 22 mpg and was left off in some games. For the same reasons why some on this current squad should be in the same spot. They aren't long term pieces so in the end, you get nothing to help you finalize a stable roster.

Still plenty of arrangements even with that being a factor. The thing about having so many young pieces that you intend to build around is it takes quite a few injuries to hit that limit.
And Joerger is rotating in almost everybody he's got to try and find a combination that might work. But hey, don't let what's actually happening get in the way of your argument.

Yeah, and my point the whole season is that IS the issue. Randomness on top of randomness will give you random results. Tinkering like it's 2k is never the answer.

He was in pretty bad shape last year and we traded for him when he was fresh off a long stint on the IR.

Tyreke looks in great shape. Looks more lean. Plus, if he makes his jumpers he’s a completely different animal.
He's also in a contract year so he has to show his worth for the whole season, which is why there weren't many bidders for him in the summer.

Reke killing us is hilarious to me.

But I'm rooting for lins, so I can find humor in this terrible game.

At least WCS is having a decent showing. So..... uh... there's that.

and this falls more so on Joerger than the the players IMO, let's remember...this is Joerger's first year coaching a rebuilding team. He is used to playing vets and the few he has here, they are getting their fair share of burn. He obviously has a short leash for the players and that approach has to start changing. I see teams like the Bulls, Lakers, Nets & Hawks all playing their youth plenty of minutes and letting them play through it to boot.

I love the Sacramento Kings. The Franchise.

I have a real hard time even liking this current team.
If you are starting 4 out of 5 players that have no future with this team in two to three seasons, then why even bother watching the games? I'll wait until the youth is unleashed.

Boy you would not have survived back in the early days.

I honestly don't know what else coach can try at this point. Buddy isn't hitting, Bogs wasn't hitting, Jackson apparently committed a mortal sin in his one minute on the court and Malachi seems to think it's about NOT hitting the iron, let alone the net.

Oh good. Bennie Mac is in.
