Fox IS our best player which is why we should be offered a king’s ransom for him in trade and why nobody should be interested in Sabonis in unrestricted free agency

When Keegan stops finishing so soft near the hoop, I’ll be thrilled. There’s no reason that Poeltl should have been able to block his shot there.

IMHO the Kings’ defense hasn’t been nearly as bad as Kayte and Mark are saying. They’ve been on the ball, contesting shots. The Spurs are just hitting everything.

Unless his price has gone up around the league, there’s no way we get a better player in return for HB than what HB is right now. Are we kinda forced to resign him?

Since this is based on memory I somewhat vaguely recall in the first 2 months we saw more of the passive HB but this iteration of HB for the last month or so has been very helpful. Hope he can maintain this level of play or close to it and if so he should be resigned if possible

I wouldn’t make the argument he’s better than Fox, but Davion has grown in a way that I would be fine giving him the keys if Fox got moved for some high-end frontcourt help.

44 of the Spurs 64 1st half points are in the paint and they’re shooting nearly 64% from the field. Kings only down 1 because they are a much better team than the Spurs and once they bother to try on the defensive end, they should be able to pull away in the 2nd half. Just don’t get why they constantly have these kind of halfs vs bad teams where they seem uninterested when it comes to playing any defense

I believe, if I remember this correctly from listening to J Ross and Henry Turner the other day, this is the 4th time Davion scored in double figures.

Davion’s the type of guy who should win the DPOG every night. It’s his offense I was taking note of.
