Great comments on Davion. He’s an important part of this team…..but it’s not in a scoring role.

maybe not a #1 option, but he can burn a mismatch in more than one way.

If you ask him to be more of a scorer than playmaker, he’s fine. He’s an okay playmaker, but he’s not likely to be better than that anytime soon.

I’m not sure whether he will ever become a consistent scoring PG, but no one should have taken anything from him last year dropping 30 on tanking teams during the last month of the season.

I think Fox might have more than one injury. He was holding his left wrist at the end of the Bucks game and three of his outside shots all missed the same way (short, I think). There was also one point where his knee looked hurt, but maybe that was the ankle.

Will, you should try writing fiction in the offseason, if you haven’t already. Which medium would you do? novel? screenplay? TV series? theatre play? short stories?

Eddie, I’m 50/50 in whether or not this is a set up for a dunk on me but I’m trusting my gut here ha

I’m curious what in this episode drew out that great suggestion!

(I got my degree in English as was taking master’s level courses for creative writing when the pandemic hit.)

ha! that was a genuine question. I think our main argument in the past was over whether to tank or not to tank. This is a different topic. I’ve been thinking you’d be a good fiction writer for a while reading your articles. from this episode, it was your comment about your favorite Christmas song and the history of that song which I thought was interesting, so I had to ask it. And then I was curious about which medium you would choose because each medium has its own rules about story arcs.

It’s Ben Taylor’s breakdown that has been making the rounds on Twitter and has been shared directly. It’s just that the Kings.com people finally linked to it, too.

Yet another entertaining session with Kings(ton) Trio. Thank you – Will, Tony and of course, Mr. Jerry Reynolds.

I am a bit surprised you all haven’t heaped more praise on Harrison Barnes. He is, at least for me, easily the 3rd best player on this team. He unspectacularly is doing all the right things and at the right time. He is also Sacramento’s only other post up player (Metu is a lob threat but not much of a post op creator). I believe that Sac would be a whole lot worse of in the W column without the play of HB. He is also an important mentor for the rook and a super veteran presence overall (great guy).

I write this as the trade talk gets louder. I would like to see the Kings extend HB unless they have a clear upgrade – and good luck with that. If the Kings can sell Holmes contract and the expiring Barnes deal and whatever else – you might find a break even or an upgrade – but I doubt it. Siakam would work – but he’s only a year out and why would Masai Ujiri/Bobby Webster do that?

That Davis guy who plays on that one LA team that shall not be named has been playing some damn good basketball lately. But Sabonis third in the west, I agree.

Agree about Davis level of play but can you count on it to last ? Recent history says not likely .

Man, you guys were all full of the Christmas Spirit there at the end!

My favorite Christmas Song is Santa Baby or anything performed by Pentatonix.

My least favorite is Little Drummer Boy…although I now have to check out the Christmas Shoes Song.
