Only in Sacramento would winning €œ13 out of 20€ games  in the middle of a season… BRINGING THEM A RECORD OF STILL 11 GAMES UNDER .500 … be used the way the Kings affiliated media and fans with apparent Stockholm Syndrome do with the Kings. Expecting a 13 out of 20 banner.

Buddy wearing a “RESPECT US” statement on his jersey looks rather odd given how the Kings have played in Orlando.

I’m listening to the Rockets tv announcers. They are laying on the Kings so bad right now, saying there’s nothing to worry about being down to them by 7. Hey Vivek/Vlade/Luke, your team HAS NO RESPECT FROM ANYONE ELSE IN THE BASKETBALL WORLD!

Came here to say roughly the same thing.

But even if your team is trash, I think it’s pretty classless for the announcers to keep harping on about it.

They sound like those arrogant ********s you find at a bar just kind of yelling at the TV.

True, I was hoping I could find trusty GG’s broadcast. But until we actually show we can do more than “learning experiences” then this is the level of comments people will be having about the team.

Very true but this team is beyond trash and approaching unprecedented ineptitude with 14+ years of no playoffs and 20 years being totally achievable

True. But the solution is, of course, for the Kings to play better.

Someone tell Luke, there’s no reason to have any of Barnes/Fox/Bogie/Buddy/Holmes in there now.

Because Lalton doesn’t have any personal, professional or basketball awareness. No upside in having the shitty playing ‘core’ (smh) in. Put in the end of the bench who will at least play like their NBA lives depend on it. This is pathetic and shows on the ownership, FO, coaching staff AND players. Too much failure for every level of the organization not to be implicated in this BS excuse of a team. Sorry, this bubble may have broken my spirit with this team.

The longer the game goes, the more the Kings play like the old Kings, the more the team’s bad habits come to the fore. Dumb turnovers, leaving players wide open for 3s, bad 3 point shooting by us. I’m really starting to get annoyed with Bogi, he really seems to personify this team’s identity. Will Fox ever be able to shoot 3s with any consistency? If not, he will never be a star in this league. Just had a Harry Giles sighting.

Well, if you’re going to go down, might as well go down in flames. Hopefully will be the end of Luke and Vlade in positions where they can continue to destroy the team.

So we are at a solid 14 years of no playoffs now. How much longer until we get the all time record?

It is 15 years, so if we miss it next season, which we probably will, we will tie for the all time record.

I think we have a chance for 20 assuming Vlade/Luke stays. 3 more years with the €œsuper team but bad€ core + another three years to bottom out and rebuild

Remember when we fired our coach who was trending in the right direction to not interview anyone and hire an accused sexual abuser who couldn’t get Lebron into the playoffs? Yeah, I wish I didn’t remember either.

But but but he wasn’t friendly enough with the players!

I dream what it would’ve been like to have kept Malone as coach.

I wake up in a cold sweat sometimes thinking about what might have been with Malone version of the Memphis-style grit and grind team that started that season so promising.

Uhg. This 3rd quarter is some of the worst Kangz basketball I’ve seen. A masterclass in loose ball handling and bricklaying. Bjelly, Hield, Bogi, Fox, Barnes have all chucked a nowhere close three this quarter.

Put the young guys in cause the rest of the team has checked out.

Fawn and debate over who’s the savior of this team in the draft, only to see Vlade pick someone else entirely. So, the usual.

Rockets look like they are playing against a G-League practice squad. The Kings aren’t playing any defense at all. They are an embarrassment. Rockets have outscored the Kings 70-35 in the second and third quarters. Everyone on the Rockets is looking for their points now. It reminds me of one of my son’s middle school games when they were up 20. Harden is relaxing in a chair wearing a Black Lives Matter shirt.

I once heard a player said he would play for free forever…It is all the BullShit that they need to get paid for. I think you would come to the same conclusion working for Vivek.

How embarrassing was that? McLemore had a great game because of course he did.
