Even though at the end of last season Fox vouched for Walton I see him making his free throws and even a three in the first quarter. Maybe same

Biggest cheer of the introductions was for Gentry. The joy will probably be short lived, but tonight feels different at G1C vs the weekend.

Heild – 0 to 14 points in 3:31 seconds. The definition of a microwave guard.
Such a valuable weapon if he can consistently have those spurts.

OG, the game is on NBA TV. If you don’t receive that channel look on the NBA site, maybe it is a free stream game there.

Agreed – Kayte basically stated the obvious of there being multiple head coaches and management throughout the years and then copped out and said that there is a learning curve with ownership.

Fans can only tolerate losing for so long. Kings fans tolerated it longer than most fan bases. The Sharks are also having attendance issues & they’ve only had a playoff drought of 2 seasons.

He can set a good screen. He’s just an old school big, much like Drummond for Philly. The game has changed. Just an example, Roy Hibbert was an all-star in 2014, but out of the game by 2017.

Was going to post something similar, but the giraffe beat me to it.

If the Kings were missing 4 starters, and it really doesn’t matter which 4 you pick, would this even be a competitive game?

Hopefully one step closer to the FO realizing this team isn’t good or playoff worthy so we can stop pretending. Look to get off the Barnes and Buddy contracts best case scenario, and then ship Bagley out for whatever they can get
