A. Today

B. Yesterday

C. All-Star Break

D. Right after missing playoff cut

E. During Off-season

F. At least give him time to watch the tape first

G. Don't fire him this year. He has too much of our $ coming still

 

The Kings are 36 and 50 under Walton, last I checked. That looks much better on paper than how it's felt to watch, that's for sure.

Hah, you're quick. 

 

I would normally vote A., but it would take away most of the attention from the new TKH Forum feature. 

So i vote B.

I'm unbothered by the Walton situation because I think he has an expiration date no matter what. If the Kings fire him now, at the deadline, at the end of the year, I'm not sure there is a huge difference. 

Now, I would have done it yesterday because I think Gentry is a better (although not great) coach. But if the Kings keep Walton through the end of the season, I'll understand why and won't care much so long as he's not here next year.

I think all of them valid tbh.. I would probably go with E(Off-season) because it gives us the best chance to get Cade. Do I believe gentry could get more effort out of them on the defensive end as a head coach? Probably.. but we'd still probably give up 110+ nightly.

This made me laugh when I saw that this was the first post.

I would say E.

I just think you wait until the off-season and evaluate from there. I am afraid that the organization is thinking G and that we will have him another year.

I would say leave Walton in unless he loses the locker room. Do everything you can to build up Buddy's and Bagley's worth, and start over next season with a new coach and whatever you can get for the BB's.

Praise to the Mod Squad who approved this as a gloriously-evil first thread!

Also as much as I would want A or B, I think D, E or G(yikes) is the most likely scenario.

I vote for right now. We do not want the team to think it is ok to lose. We need someone with the GM's trust to run this team

Walton should really be gone ASAP. There's no reason to keep him if you know he's gone at the end of the season anyway. All that does is allow these guys to develop bad habits under him

The thing that grinds my gears the most is the complete lack of energy he exhibits on the sidelines. He seems more disinterested in the game than the cardboard cutouts in the stands. Like him or not, you knew that Joerger cared about his job and getting players to perform their best even up till the end.

Can we trade him for Cash Considerations?

 

If not, then B.  He doesn't know how to raise Buddy's value for a trade.

Fire him tomorrow, make it a two for one firing special.

He's clearly lost the locker room.

I would be enjoying this team a lot more with Walton gone.

Related question: What would the Kings look like under Pop? What would the Spurs look like under Walton?
