So Metu and Len get the start today? Does Gentry realize that Raptors don’t play a single guy over 6’9″?

Jeez homeostasis for this team is being down by double-digits. Lately I’ve been surprised to see them losing by 9 or less, especially because they spot teams like 10 points to start games

Likewise with Davion in the Clippers game, and even L2M report said it was the correct call. SMH. https://official.nba.com/last-two-minute-report/?gameNo=0022100348&eventNum=2230

I am not watching but occasionally look at the box score.

This team is about to lose the city, if it hasn’t already.

Fans are fed up.

And the sad thing is that there are very few options.

EXCEPT BLOWING THE WHOLE DAMN THING UP. LIKE THEY SHOULD HAVE DONE 10 YEARS AGO

I’d love to know why Gentry isn’t playing Hali. I mean, come on, TT comes in and plays 13 straight minutes taking 7 official shots but more if you count fouls and Hali can’t play? Kings basketball: Throw shit at the wall and see what sticks. No order, no organization, no roles, no identity, no effort. Here’s a hint: Nothing sticks.

Funny how there’s nobody in here defending Fox & Co anymore. Couple weeks ago there was lots of ’em at the throats of anyone who wanted the team blown up and a fire sale to happen, calling them morons for it. Guess ‘we’ truly are morons; seeing how they’re all gone into hiding, and we’re still watching this shit show.

So I had the opportunity to sit down and watch most of the game tonight.
After careful analysis, I’ve reached the conclusion that this team does not look very good.

Some people might say wholesale changes to the roster are needed.
They may be right.

Unfortunately none of those people are Vivek Ranadive.
