KANGZ on tape-delay…..moves made tonight are going to look solid on paper and initially, but they’ll ultimately end up amounting to nothing. This franchise is truly cursed.

If we’re going to draft Ivey and that’s the whole offseason, McNair does not have a playoff mandate to keep his job. Adding Ivey (or Collins for Barnes plus drafting Ivey) is not going to make this a playoff team.

But how many of those types have the Kings drafted from 2007 until Haliburton? I feel like that’s been one of the biggest issues for this team over the 16-year drought – they fell in love with everything except the one thing they needed most.

Should have phrased it ‘from 2007 until McNair’s hire’. But yes, starting with the end of the Petrie era, through PDA, through Vlade, draft picks that were high-BBIQ, versatile, mature, two-way players were a rarity in Sacramento. McNair has been a clear shift into sanity in that regard.

With three first-round picks behind him now, the selections of Haliburton, Mitchell and Murray have been rock solid and, on their own, (given a full rebuild instead of the path McNair was largely forced into) would have been a really nice trio to build around.

About 3 weeks ago I figured out that we were gonna take Murray and I’m so stoked about this pick. I don’t see this as vivek’s pick at all. This pick shares so many similar characteristics with both Hali and Davion. Monte picks mature players with high character, high IQ, grinders who are team players and who also have developed at least one skill at a high level that will translate to the NBA.

Hali and Mitchell: High BBIQ, unselfish, hard-working, high-character, NBA-ready skills, elite college production. Murray checks all these boxes. Monte has a type, and Murray is it.

Glad to go this team is a fucking wreck. This team cannot get out of their own way. Fuck the Kings

Genuinely curious…your intense reaction suggests that the Kings just took Papagiannis over a future All-Star. If the choice had been that egregious I could totally see the reaction. But Ivey and Murray are close enough today that I’ve yet to hear a single talking head at multiple networks blast them for the pick.

I totally get personal preferences. But as of right now at least, this isn’t Sam Bowie vs. Michael Jordan.

I mean come on man. It was really a 50/50 between Murray and Ivey. If either of them were inevitably going to be a star they wouldn’t have been taken #4.

It’s a thing. Who would another small NBA franchise from San Antonio have taken if they were at 4?

If the Spurs are your standard, it was reported yesterday that they were trying to trade up for Murray…who knows if true

The Spurs are a context and a standard and my opinion has nothing to do with it. The Kings could’ve traded Keegan for Sochan and?

I was just pointing out that if you were wondering who the Spurs would choose between Ivey and Murray, they were reported to like Murray more.

Like I said below, if Murray is the whole offseason (outside of bench tinkering), McNair has no playoff mandate to do his job. Would not have been any different if it had been Ivey.

Are you under the impression that this is all that happens in the offseason, or is “if” jut doing a ton of work?

Is that what you expect to happen, or not? Don’t overthink it.

It’s a pretty simple statement. You’ll figure it out or you won’t. My money’s on won’t, but I like to be surprised.

I’d just like to point out that you two do seem to agree on inviting the other to kiss some ass. I’d like to commend your willingness to meet in the middle. So to speak.

Yeah, that’s gotta be it.

I was going to say, you’ll be missed, but you won’t go anywhere, and you wouldn’t be missed.

Yeah, I hate this. Based on his: clothing, face, gigantic body, smile, hair, or something else?

I mean on the other hand drafting Ivey wouldn’t have made sense. We’d have the same holes and problems as last year. Kings obviously think Fox and sabs can lead this team to the promise land

Do you have it on good authority that there will be no more acquisitions before the season begins four months from now?
