With so many Rockets out, this should be a blow out for the Kings….but these are the Kings, right?

Also, said before but if you get NBA ticket-single team is cheap- you don’t have to listen to the Sacramento call. I don’t have to hear what I don’t get. Beautiful

I just came here to say that Buddy absolutely needs to guard Eric Gordon. They are both disappointingly thick like oatmeal and far less agile than they should be.

I am not even mad about the 2 fouls – if he plays defense like that for the rest of the year I will be super happy

I watched “Scarface” on cable with a friend decades ago, and we tried to count how many times Pacino said the F word. About 2/3 of the way through, we got to 267 and stopped.

I feel like Houston’s rotations are just a bunch of shooting guards and the occasional big man. I don’t think they’ve played but one guy over 6’5″

Can we banish Cojo to one of those glass prison things from Superman 2? It’s not so much that he’s terrible but he’s terrible AND taking minutes from players that could be developed for the future

So while we watch Oladipo in a Rockets jersey and Barnes , Bjelica and Hield in Kings jerseys for perhaps the last time in a thriller between the two basement dwellers – what are your fav realistic Kings trades? I like Barnes for Nesmith and Celts 1st; Buddy and a 2nd for Danny Green, Scott and whichever of the prospects the Sixers have.

Ainge isn’t giving up a pic in the first round cause he knows he will lose the trade.

I disagree. The Celtics don’t want to get younger so a 20ish pick doesn’t help them, unless it is used in trade. They only have until November to use that massive TPE, and their aren’t too many other players that fit that exception as well as Barnes.

Will see. Angie will wait until the last day (trade deadline) to use the TPE. Miami may steal HB. They may not want to get younger this year but remember the gm role is 5 years or 3 from now. HB can give them a chance to win some games but does he move them past Phil or Brooklyn?

And Cojo gave it to Buddy before crossing the halfcourt line in that last play. Astonishingly stupid.
