So much drama in Sactown
I’ll give ya the lowdown
Luke went to the dark side
So they threw him outside

Triple OT wins and Memphis sins
Fans throwin’ jerseys in bins
Tonight we got a date, Lebron rang
Face it, it aint easy being Kang

(its early)

Terrific thoughts on Fox and Hali and why not find minutes for King instead of Harkless and Davis ! Makes sense to me !

Stuck out to me a bit when Jerry answers Will’s question about his time as Kings GM:

“There was times when we had a bad roster and I felt like there was a couple of things we could do to make it a lot better and I wasn’t allowed to, so I resigned.”

…Thinking about this with regards to the type of GM’s Vivek has brought in and their working relationship with ownership.

‘Well, I don’t know if you could turn it around quickly, but I’ll say this I don’t agree with Monte’s assessment. This team is not about pace. They are playing faster than as is as assist to turnover ratio might tell ya. But I wouldn’t be concerned about that at all.

I’d be more concerned about having really more structure offensively. If you want to play faster pace, a lot of that times that starts with defense. Requiring your guards to pick up somewhere before the free throw line would be a good start.’

Bit paraphrased, but that’s why we love Jerry.
