I believe Kayte may have just said “Lebron has never been a load management guy”.

I’m thinking what Kayte meant was that personally doesn’t like load management but when his coach ordered him take some games off here and there he had no choice, the coach is the boss and we all know how well LeBrown obeys the coaching staff. Yep, I think that’s what she meant……..Uh huh, sure

I popped into say hello because misery loves company.. oh and the kings announcer is horrific.. he try’s way too hard … he made the quote that said “his transcendence is so routine that sometimes it becomes invisible”.. I would probably watch more of this horrendous team if we had better people calling the games, Grant Napier may have been a total douche nozzle but at least he called a good game

This broadcast crew has a laundry list of faults, but Peaches was just as guilty of trotting out the same 15 catchphrases and tags on a nightly basis. I’m not a fan of this group, but I don’t miss his tired shtick in the least.

Unpopular comment for this blog but Kayte is doing her job. She’s paid to be positive and be a homer, she probably doesn’t 100% believe some of things she says but it her job to be positive.
