Infuriating? C’mon. Most of us expected the team to flail this season in hopes for some growth of the young players. We’ve well exceeded that. It’s nice to at least still have a (thin) chance at the playoffs after all this time.
This Kingsfan has enjoyed the hell out of this season’s ride so far.
Good I'm glad you have....this Kingsfan is tired of the playoffs drought,. They didn't flail, so to expect more during the season is a natural progression. The Kings have been at or just above .500 for most of the season. Had the Kings had a Pelicans or Mavericks-type season, maybe I'd agree with your sentiment, but they've done better. So yes, to be this close to a playoff slaughter even is angering, especially as it might be 1 or 2 game differential. Is this premature? Maybe.....can expectations change? You bet.
Did anyone really not expect the Kings to make this playoff run difficult? They have built their reputation as the kardiac Kings by getting in a whole and then making the late game come back. They have simply done the same with the season. They dug themselves a whole and now have the rest of the season to make a miraculous comeback.
The Kings goal should be to get within one game of the Spurs prior to our game with them. If we win that game, we would be in a tie, and we win the tie breaker. Would make for some late season high drama that we haven't seen in a long time.
