Breaking: Luke Walton will be retained as Head Coach

I don't get it either.

According to James Ham of NBCS, the Sacramento Kings will retain Head Coach Luke Walton heading into the 2021-2022 NBA season.

In two seasons with the Kings, Walton has compiled a 62-82 record and has missed the playoffs and play-in tournament in both years. And despite many questioning his job security throughout the entire season, it's clear he earned the trust of his players, as De'Aaron Fox, Tyrese Haliburton, and Harrison Barnes all recently spoke up in favor of their leader. The decision to retain Walton marks Monte McNair's second critical decision as Sacramento's General Manger after drafting Tyrese Haliburton last fall, although many are much more skeptical of this choice.

Walton has two years left on his original four-year contract with the Kings.

Fucking Joke. Was hoping it actually was……

How? Why? Pure, unadulterated idiocy. Obviously Vivek has not given up power.

Bringing back same coach and team that didn’t even make the playin, coming off a horrible season the previous year…..great idea.

I honestly just don’t care anymore about this crap-scarfing team. They suck year after year. The only reason I’ve stayed around is the KingsHerald crowd. Cool, the Kings stayed. Too bad they still suck just as bad as ever.

I don’t care that Hali and Fox throw their support behind Lose Walton. Point me to a “player coach” that wins championships that a monkey with cymbals couldn’t have led that team to a championship (here’s looking at you, Kerr).

Whatever. The apathy will continue to mount. If this was Monte’s choice, I have no faith in him. If it was Vivek’s choice, he really needs to get the F out of the way and let people with actual basketball knowledge do their job.

The Kings Herald and the community here is the ONLY reason these days I’m connected in anyway with the Kings. If it hadn’t been for the website I wouldn’t be following anything with them right now.
