Interesting point regarding 5 teams that had worse records than the Kings last season heading to bubble ( Wizards, Knicks, Suns, Warriors, Hawks ) all now much improved and none due to the lottery ! All due to trades, FA or Coaching change !

I really hope everyone is listening to this podcast, as it is highly entertaining. Hearing Jerry’s perspective on things can be pretty eye-opening. Really well done.

Good discussion but I hope Monte McNair does what HE thinks is best. Probably Kings are more likely to win the NBA championship next year with Walton than without him (1 in 1000 vs 1 in 2000). If the Kings suck again next year Walton will be gone and maybe the team gets lucky in the lottery.
