Funny, the Kings are just as good (or bad) defensively with Haliburton starting in Bagley’s place. Because Bagley plays like a guard.

Just my observation, but the Bucks really need a backup PG right now.

Send them Joseph.

Potentially the Emoni Bates draft. Not that a Bucks pick is likely to be high enough to get him.

This is the first I recall of a 2nd for 1st swap. I mean, it’s likely only moving up 7-8 places in the draft (and from a non-guaranteed draftee to a guaranteed rookie scale deal), but still.

Kayte €œHolmes has become pretty irreplaceable for this Kings team.€

And 20 seconds later, Draper, €œHe fits in perfectly with this young kings team.€

I am probably overthinking things, but that sure sounds like something you would say if you were trying to drive his price up in the trade market.

I doubt other GMs are listening to the Kings broadcast AND are being swayed by the likes of Kayte.

It’s key to make sure that the broadcasters have their talking points because most GMs are too lazy to look up stats or watch video.

“Oh, no! It sounds like the Kings see Holmes in their long-term plans! How many first-rounders are we allowed to trade at once?”

I don’t think there’s any seventh-level chess going on here, the entire broadcast crew pretty universally talks up all of our rostered players.

Holmes will be traded, simply because I don’t want him to. I’d keep him, Fox and Hali and start over.

In two years, I don’t think I’ve seen Holmes miss three push shots in a row. Well, if anyone’s earned some slack, it’s him.

Did you see that airball the other night on the short one? I had to rewind it to make sure it was actually Holmes shooting it. That thing is money.

His percentage decline is so odd. First nine seasons, he shot 82% from the line. The last four seasons? 70%.

Reminds me of Mike Bibby. He shot over 80% with the Kings but tapered near the end. I swear my un-scientific analysis has it to do with bulking up. Same goes for Buddy from 3 this year.

This game is reminds of playing a pickup game at the gym…probably less competitive. Watching Kings for more than 5 mins takes serious effort. The Kings could actually make tanking fun and just let me watch Woodard, Guy, and Jeffries play. Give a little regular run to Ramsey and James. As a fan I would actually enjoy that, Vivek and Monte just don’t get me lol. I want Tank City!

I feel like it’s been said once or twice before, but Woodard has a hamstring problem, so throwing him out there right now isn’t such a great idea. I can’t wait to see him once he’s sound again.

Good job by Fox get into his spot to make that game-winner. Bad news for the tank as we could’ve picked up a half a game on Washington there. The schedule is on the tanks side moving forward. Luke good job giving JJ minutes now move those minutes down the bench and stop playing your stars meaningless minutes in this lost season.
