Tonight at 5:30 PM PT the Los Angeles Lakers and Indiana Pacers square off in Las Vegas for the In-Season Tournament championship. Despite Kings fans being weary at the nonstop narratives around reliving the Tyrese Haliburton trade, we at The Kings Herald wanted to declare our official rooting position:
Beat LA, Hali.
I’m so tired of all the constant rehashing of talking points every time Haliburton has a great game, but I still love watching Tyrese play basketball. He’s awesome, and it’s not his fault that Twitter casuals can’t understand nuance. I’d rather endure yet another evening of people anointing Hali as a transcendent star while ignoring Fox’s latest feats, or people failing to notice the fact that the Kings and Pacers have identical records this season, because all of that is still preferable to the Lakers winning anything, even a somewhat meaningless tournament.
The game will air on ABC, and will also mercifully mark the final time we have to see those hideous courts this season.
