Hopeful but not looking so good. Not that sticking with what we got would be so terrible.

Trading Holmes would be nice on multiple levels. Good for him, the return would likely be a solid probability of improving the rotation

I certainly don’t miss all of the fox for Ben Simmons trade banter that we had last year, I was not in the trade Fox camp.

I was, but that was also when the Kings still had Hali and i wanted him to be the future.

Well I like respect your opinion, plus I think we have had similar thoughts on players… anyway the Hali- Sabonis trade is one of the few win wins you see.

i think you mentioned Boucher and after watching him I think we would be good too… Plumlee might fit better but could see Boucher on this team

What would it take to get Thybulle? Love the size and skillset. Plumlee would be cool love his game and think his physicality is lacking on the team in the paint outside of Sabonis. Also he has veteran respect in the league so may not get called for as many chippy fouls that Metu seems to get hit with

Trade Chips are Holmes/Davis IMO and maybe Mitchell. Anything else I’d worry of disrupting our core. Disclaimer – i don’t understand trade mechanics in NBA. GO KINGS

Philly apparently wants a big and/or a shooter. Holmes, Len, or TD all work for me.

The past couple of years, there has been multiple assertions that the Kings have been lucky with regard to injuries. I invite us all to consider the notion that our current training/medical staff have done a great job at keeping players healthy.

And also, Domas deserves kudos for playing through a fractured thumb.

Another reason we have less games missed due to injuries this season:

Joking aside, I totally agree with your comment!

of COURSE, Tony picks a book called “Tears of a TIGER.”

I have Jerry’s book, the Wooden book, the Kareem on Wooden book….Jerry’s is book is one of my favorite books, basketball-related or not. Just heard his voice in my head telling all of these great stories about the team I cheered for and cried over during my younger days.

Jerry, hopefully you can give us a second book. I know there wasn’t much to write about during the playoff drought years, but the same could be said for the late 80’s early 90’s Kings. And I’m sure you’d give us a great perspective on the relocation saga, as you were on the broadcast team and saw all the fans fighting for the team. You can probably also talk about how things have evolved as far as coverage goes, where it used to be (like Jerry getting his Tennis photo in Sports Illustrated) articles in hard copy magazines, and now podcasts, such as The Kings Herald podcast and The Old Fashioned Three, are ubiquitous and the norm.

Sequels are generally a bad idea, but not in this case. And if you narrate the audiobook, Mr. Reynolds, that would be just incredible.

And a lot easier than having to read copy for an upcoming LMFAO show at G1C!

Agree, although I’d say Domas is a good sequel to Arvydas.

I think that technically he’d need to be Arvydas Jr. in order to qualify, so this is more of a spinoff.

I can’t stand when famous people name children after themselves. Except in the rarest circumstances, it’s a lifetime of negative comparisons. I don’t love it in general, just let a kid have their own name, you self-centered prick.

Haha, good point. 🙂

Maybe we can someday have a spinoff of Arvydas’s kid and Fox’s kid on the Kings someday.

It’s kind of crazy/interesting how more and more “pedigree” players are popping up in the NBA. I guess it was bound to happen…genetics and all.

Think ahead to maybe a hundred years from now, and it’ll be even more common.

I think Kobe was the first one I witnessed, and was like “that’s so cool that his dad was a player. Oh, and of course Rick Berry and Jon and the rest…

In addition to Domantas/Arvydas, I think the one I get the most joy out of is Bol Bol/Manute. I wish Manute was around to see his son show off his talents.

It would really have been wonderful for Manute see his baby boy become a very intriguing NBA player.

Still, would either Luke Walton or Austin Rivers been able to stay in the NBA had their last names been Smith or Jones? I think there must be an unspoken rule about not criticizing the offspring of the great ones.

Walton was able to stay in the league for ten seasons while putting up 4.7apg/2.8rpg. I’ll be most of the guys in the D League could put up numbers like that in their sleep.

You’d need a dumpster-full of hands to count all of the ways nepotism & inherited wealth undermine things.

The hands would need to be severed, obviously.
