I actually enjoy Doug Christie. He’s also one of my favorite Kings of all time. We also happen to share the same birthday lol. I just admire his knowledge of the game but I get that not everyone is a fan.

I have a theory that DC jinxes everything whenever he talks. If he says getting to the line will help Fox, then Fox will immediately brick the free throw.

Right before that timeout, RJ Barrett is dribbling and then Fox just jumps to his side defensively giving him a clear path. I assume he was trying to force Barrett to use his off hand, but shouldn’t there be a compromise where you stay in front but lead them one way rather than giving them a clear path?

We should be in the playoff atmosphere. I’d prefer we move Buddy & Bagley as well. Barnes is trying to win now…sometime. I’ll take Barnes’ heart and effort over those two any day. The losing mentality or that tanking shit has stop. Everyone knows the next 2 drafts are pretty stacked. Possibly several HOFs. Understandable. The current players may not be the best, but they still are professional athletes and should be held accountable. If the expectation isn’t to be elite and win every night, then dismantle the team and sale to a city and owner that wants to win. Sacramento should not be synonymous with losing or tanking. That’s insanity. Losing doesn’t have room for the Kings anymore “Monte”. It’s going on 15 years!! And I wasn’t even thrilled about our last playoff appearance either. Seattle smoked us 4-2. Ray Allen showed up.

When we play with effort and tenacity, we are hard to beat. With that said, our defense is horrible and it’s time to shake things up…by firing Walton primarily. Walton might be one of the worst coaches I’ve ever seen.
