If the Kings lose badly to this Lakers squad, then that might be the final nail in the coffin for Walton’s tenure.

Time to take advantage of the Lakers missing their big guns and get some momentum to make a run post all-star break for the play-in

Lakers showing a little respect to the Kings. They know they can’t compete with the high-powered Kings, so they’ve decided to sit their starters for the game.

I thought the tank was in peril with no LeBron/AD and all the Lakers injuries. Than I realized that the team is laying down for Walton.

only they are laying down for him too much, which threatens to fire him

Look at Bjelica doubling the guard at half court, then trying to catch up to his man with the ball as he drives to the hoop where no one steps in front of him. You can’t teach those instincts. As soon as the Lakers cool down from shooting wide open shots, we will be right back in this. Kings are tenacious.

I cant believe THT scored on Belly. He usually uses his incredible lateral quickness to shut down guards. Little off tonight.

Every shot by CoJo feels like a prayer. Even the layups. I should not be shocked to see a floater/layup go in from a professional basketball player. Also that turnover on the feed to Bagley was terrible. Fox or Haliburton would have ooped that to him. The oop was there, and he failed to recognize it.

Judging by that turnover he just made I think not. He has shot 17% from the field lately and hasn’t scored until tonight. Getting 18+ min a game btw.

I’m may be exaggerating a little with the layups but I’m mostly just keeping it real. The guy is a net negative. And I’m fed up with our tendency as a fanbase to make excuses for players that obviously have no future with this team. He very well could be gone in a few weeks. The same goes for GR3 (who is now gone) and Whiteside (who is rumored as a buyout candidate at the deadline). Its one thing if we are debating over Buddy, Bagley, Holmes, Fox or Barnes, but its another thing for the bench players outside of our rookies.

One that has been deprived of success like ours has certainly does. Our franchise has been absolutely trash at collecting talent. Forget wins. Just having players that can actually crack an NBA rotation. We have 3 draft picks on our roster (Fox, Bagley, and Hali) in the last 5 years that see consistent minutes. You go back a decade and the ones that are still playing are teetering on the cusp of being out of the league. Our bench has no depth because we suck at drafting, which if we were actually good at it would lead to tradable assets or valuable rotational pieces. I know no team hits on all their picks but it is a glaring issue on a team that hasn’t sniffed success since the mid 2000s.

Pretty good half. We held them to 61, No one expected that. Now we get to see Walton’s famous halftime adjustments, and we can own the third quarter like we are known for.

All Harrell is doing is trying. Just heart and effort. Nothing groundbreaking. And we cant stop him. Every big outside of the Embiid, Jokic, KAT and AD variety (players you know we have no answer for) that actually tries has a field day against our defense.

Idk what Fox was thinking. Everyone knows you can’t take on Dudley like that in open court. Hands are too quick. Kahwi, Gary Payton, Dudley. Best on ball defenders of all time.

Why didn’t Barnes just intentionally miss the 2nd free throw and let the time run out in the process since there is only 1.3 seconds left? With the timeout it afforded the fakers a chance to get the shot off cleanly
