Nemanja is starting to look like Andy Kaufman.

Some of Bogi’s misses are pretty rough. His shooting is pretty streaky for someone whose game is based on fundamentals.

It would be so fitting for Temple to have a great game and burry us.

The Carter Imports Ad reminds me of a funny story. I bought my lady friend the olive oil and honey, but didn’t tell her. I had it delivered to her address, so there was no evidence I was the one who purchased it. There’s a note in there that says something along the lines of “if you enjoy these products then please share your experience on social media”. She read the note, and thought she was getting free samples because Carter Imports considered her a social media influencer! I was cracking up when she told me. I almost didn’t want to tell her, and let her believe some random oil company sent her free stuff because she has a couple hundred IG followers.

By the 4th quarter the ship righted itself, to the bottom of the sea, as is tradition.

Really smart move by Luke to sub out 3 of our players, including Fox, when we went on a 12-0 run and cut the lead to 4…
… 3 minutes later, it’s back to 11

Sometimes I feel like he does the opposite of what a good coach should do and idk how he justifies the decisions to himself

This is the worst I’ve seen the Kings play since Kenny Natt. And at least he, and that team, was eternally likable because we were bottoming out during a rebuild.

Gentry is far more proven, but I doubt he’d have gotten many more wins out of that Natt team.

Now now. We shouldn’t be dismissing the badgers so quickly. What we should be asking is can they play small forward?

9.

The amount of time I watched an offensive set in the 3rd quarter where all 5 players did not move. Not a single damn motion. Just stood there, as if they’d get the ball by osmosis.

This has become a mockery, and I am now convinced Luke got this job as part of some elaborate incredible prank by the L*kers.

Kings definitely didn’t show up today but this loss once again is on Walton. You cut the lead down to 4, Brooklyn calls a timeout and you swap most of your starters for the bench?? 18 point Deficit shortly after. This team will continue to fail with this coach. Yes our GM sucks too but at least last year we were trending upwards with DJ. Smh

I haven’t been fooled since a five game win streak with Cousins-Karl.
