True, but if your GM has any real power, which again, DUMARS effect, then this particular decision is on Monte.
That is always the question with Vivek around. How much power does a Kings GM even have? He’s always meddling, and then there’s that whole too many cooks in the kitchen FO thing that has NEVER worked since he got here, because it works in tech or something….

Vivek will always be the problem. If he had a capacity to learn from his mistakes, he wouldn’t keep making them.
 
do any of you think that these players are intentionally throwing these games to get rid of Luke? With the inconsistent rotations, DNPs maybe the players are fed up and this is their way to show displeasure. Didn't the Lakers and Bron quit on him too?
Huge insult to fans if they are. If they are willing to throw games for a fan base starved for success they all deserve to be cut or traded.

We'll never know but it feels like Vivek has given the player personnel role to his GM but not the coach. Which makes no sense because Luke's contract is essentially a vet minimum/Biennial exception level deal. If it was bringing on a player of that salary level that could net us more wins it would be a no brainer.
 
This is about talent, heart and leadership. You damn well better have 2 out of 3 to be competitive. I’m not sure we have any at this point.

while it is unfair to the fanbase starving for any type of consistency and success, this is about the only way to get him out of town right now unless Monte decides to keep him and get a top 8 pick, then sure, keep him around and just make sure to not tune in because there will be many more nights like this

This is a business, if you are a FO person with any clue you don't let situations like this go this far. As said, sometimes that boost move like the Hawks made last year is a window that isn't open anymore when you finally grow a pair and make it.

Ah, yes, remember the other fault with Walton? That last month isn't development time and pick time, it's CLEAN UP TIME. He'll find his way to 9-10 in the lottery if you let him.
