One of my all time draft memories was Stern waving on the people who were booing him at the start of the draft as he was giving it opening spiel.

Missed all you guys these last few months but with no real Kings news I haven’t been on the site. Looking forward to tonight’s draft. Hoping for Vassell or Hampton.

There are now 3 players drafted with the #1 pick named Anthony making it the most popular first name for a #1 pick. There have been two players drafted at #1 named Bob, Andrew or Joe.

LaMelo at 3? Makes no sense with playmakers already there in Charlotte. Was hoping he would go to Chicago.

Patrick Williams at #4 – good lord he shot up the draft boards.

Kings are going to get someone I want with the Bulls taking Williams. Just make the right choice.

Haliburton should get past the Wizards and Suns and Spurs on paper….IMO its worth it to jump up and get him

Board is shaping up to get very interesting in our range. Exciting to the extent that their are a plenty of options deserving.

If Deni is still there at 10. Call Phoenix and Trade Nemanja + Joseph + 12 for 10.. Pick Deni

Suddenly, can we fancy some Deni an Israeli?

I’m sad that Hayes & Deni are gone.

I guess Vassell or Haliburton would work, I’m thoroughly unexcited about everyone else. Well, except Poku but that is more of the bad sort of excited.

Bbmuteman

Just watch the next two picks be them, then what do the kings do? Poku?

NO POKU!!!

God I hope not. There’s skinny you can fix and there are some, very few, guys who are just never going to add any bulk whatsoever no matter what they do and I strongly suspect Poku is in the latter category. Adding muscle when you are that slight is not hard unless you’re just genetically predisposed to not be able to do so.

His skill set probably keeps him from being the next Shawn Bradley but I am not sure he could ever be more than a situational player in the NBA
