I didn’t see who committed the foul at first but my first thought was ‘What an atrocious, unnecessary, foul. Who would be so totally unaware as to give that foul up?’ and then pan to Sacramento’s very own “Defensive Specialist.”

It should be a misdemeanor if Joseph plays over 10 mins a game and a felony whenever Hield dribbles the ball.

Bagley’s baseline is to be tossed around like a rag doll, same way Bam Adebayo did to him in his first summer league. There might be flashes of average defense, but don’t let it fool you.

77 points allowed on 66% shooting from the field and over 50% from 3PT for the team who is ranked DEAD LAST in PPG on the season. It’s honestly amazing the Kings have 12 wins with how utterly useless they are on the defensive end

As someone who is pro tank, we’re playing too poorly to let Luke continue to coach the team

even if they Monte doesn’t want to he is going to have to fire Walton

which will alter our tank

I am so zen about this season. I watch these Buddy air balls, CoJo’s make-a-wish minutes, Whiteside pickpockets, Marvin blown defensive assignments and smile. Thinking, of the incredible trade deadline and offseason that awaits us where we bring in an entirely new coaching staff and set of young prospects built around Fox-Hali-Bagley. A full year more of development for Guy, Ramsay, DaQuan, Woodard, Metu all ready to step up once Joseph, Buddy, Barnes, Bjelica, and Holmes are jettisoned within the next year. Trying to figure out just which player among this year’s top 5 is gonna fall to us if we go at this rate. Oh yes, keep the bricks coming. It’s just the receding before the tide swells again. ….right?

You know what came to mind today? After getting destroyed in the bubble, Luke Walton saying two or three times €œwe just gotta get some stops€, and I also remembered how he says he wants a switching defense like the Warriors had. It would be ironic if he won’t play his 5 switchable defenders together (Fox, Haliburton, Jeffries, Barnes, Holmes)

I saw three possessions. (1) Bagley fumbles ball and gives to Fox with 6 seconds on shot clock. (2) Bagley gives Barrett a wide open lane for a layup (everybody should see that one), and (3) same predictable move, Bagley offensive charge. Thanks for the comedy. That’s all I need to watch for the night.

Yeah, poor communication between him and barnes there. See he sealed off his man looking for a rebound? Looks like he expected holmes to rotate over, which was the wrong idea since someone has to stop ball.

Alec Burks: 19 points in the 4th, with 4 threes.

Building a team around 3 players who play defense as poorly as Fox, Bagley and Hield is a fool’s errand.

Major changes needed to make this team competitive.

Knicks, one of the lowest scoring teams in the league, if not the lowest, with 132 points with 3:46 remaining.

I’d say minimum 2 years. Only hope for the rest of this season is him finding a way to shed CoJo, Bjelica, and Buddy somehow. Follow that up by firing Luke after the year and letting Monte find his HC
