Fox’s €œsometimes you have to look in the past to know where you’re going€ promo probably didn’t quite end up meaning it was meant to.

I can’t stand it when Doug and Kayte treat viewers like we’re stupid. Like when the former just said “you might not know” Elgin Baylor.

The Kings probably only need about 15 minutes of really good basketball to beat this team.

I’m not optimistic.

Heck, 15 minutes of average defense would probably do it!

Good thing the only defense the org plays is via the local media!

Whiteside please just box out, put your hands up at the basket, and dunk. Don’t pass, let the intended target grab the ball from you.

This is what I want to see from him and Fox. This should be our offense every night. Not Haliburton getting phased out when CoJo is playing alongside him.

Another Bagley trade rumor is circulating now. King’s may wind up moving the wrong guy when it’s Barnes that needs to be jettisoned.

Trading Bagley would make the team better sooner than trading Barnes honestly because the team wouldn’t get notably worse without him. Depending on the return for Barnes of course, which would be a project and a first as Boston doesn’t need to match his salary. I just mention Boston because that’s the most likely trade.

Fox is on fire. Even with Cojo in, we are up by 18. Not looking good for the tank. We could pull even with Cleveland if we lose.

Our second unit is painful to watch. There has to be a stat or two that confirms my eyeballs telling me they are a bottom five second unit.

Part of Walton needing to be fired is not understanding when the starters no longer need to be in the game

if an injury happens to Fox up 16 with two minutes left..

why hasn’t someone stepped in?
