Less a vision issue (as he was behind him) and more a feeling/ sensing him issue

Why the hell is Whiteside taking long jumpers, turn around jumpers and trying to take his man off the dribble. And 2nd, why the hell is Luke taking so long to lead this deficit grow while he does this nonsense. Wtf

Where are all the Whiteside supporters today? This is who he is. A paradox. He will give you brilliance on occasion. On other days, he’s disinterested and hideously bad. He’s been this way his entire career. That’s why he never will last on any team. He wears out his welcome everywhere he goes. He’s has zero loyalty or passion for the game. That’s why I never liked the guy. No respect for the game whatsoever.

He is playing his way into a very nice contract. The problem is it might be a contract the Kings simply can’t afford. They don’t have his Bird Rights and limited to how much they can pay him.

LOL I like how the play he drove and failed was followed by him stepping into an easy shot assisted by Fox. So it was Bad Bagley, Good Bagley.

If we’re talking about the spin move attacking the rim, that’s a good thing, even if the player misses. Good things happen on the attack.

Yes, I agree. It was stupid for Bagley to do that. But I definitely can name some leapers who will posterize Ibaka’s ass.

I think he rushes his FT. He also doesn’t have full extension on the release. He short arms it a bit. I’ve also noticed he doesn’t always square his hips to the rim.

What I can say for sure is Kalamian is the guy running the defense. He’s been up barking orders to the Kings. He’s a lot more vocal than Walton on that end of the floor.

Alright. I’m sold. Fox-Hali-Barnes-Holmes should be the core for the medium term. Trade Bagley and Buddy for Wiggins and Minnesota’s 1st at the deadline and push for the playoffs, then trade both 1sts for a top 10 pick anyway.
