The kings would be a 25-20 team with Pops as coach

24-21 with Malone
23-22 with Carlisle or Spolestra

You may be joking, but I think you make a salient point. Looking at the Kings starting lineup, especially since Tyrese moved in, I don’t see a crappy team. Sure, the bench has been weak, but does anyone really believe that, if we had Pop or Spoelstra as our coach, we would suck? Tank-time? I sure don’t.

Sorry, the ladies were bad as well. You could tell Kayte took over the broadcast as the game wore on, so she was a minor bright spot, perhaps she can take Doug’s spot.

But Draper is AWFUL.

League pass has SAS video feed and SAC’s audio. Draper is horrible. Please have the women’s broadcast anytime Mark Jones isn’t available. Draper is such a cringe. He sounds like a normal fan trying to comment/play-by-play.

can we just get JRoss some time on the feed? Anyone but Draper. 🤮

Every opposing center can just sit in that beautiful offensive rebounding circle with no resistance.

Not their fault,, but this is when Fox and Hali need to hunt triple doubles. Go help get those boards!

It was such a bad call. White’s hips were facing the sideline when Fox cut towards the basket. White is physically not capable of recovering that fast.

The true nature of this team will be revealed if we let them come back in true KANGZ fashion.

If the starters and subsequently the bench puts them away this quarter into the early 4th then this might be a new team folks!
