Kings notes

It's been too long since I last wrote so I thought I'd release some bits of info and thoughts on the various topics of recent days. First, last night, Mayor Kevin Johnson reported his whales to be Mark Mastrov and Ron Burkle. He also reported that Mitch Richmond would be a minority investor among the […]

More thoughts post Thomas Robinson trade

Rather than pointing out the obvious and saying the Maloofs are cheap pieces of craptastic amphibious lowlife shit, I'll just leave them out of this. We know they are worthless. Yesterday proved it yet again. The NBA was thrilled to hear they "agree" to sell the team to Hansen because if nothing else it illustrates […]

Maloofs-NBA make official sale announcement to Chris Hansen

The Maloofs and the NBA have made their announcement. Whoopty fucking doo. Does it change anything? Not especially, no.  First, are the Maloofs the Captain's of SS Lord Douchebag? You  bet. Today's announcement changes nothing. It's still in the hands of the BoG (the fact that the Maloofs never entertained outside buyers is not surprising […]

Kings squeak by the Wizards 95-94

Numbers are deceptive. Sometimes numbers are not deceptive. Tonight, there are some really big deal type numbers, and well there are also some numbers that are probably not as big of a deal as they look like. First, look at minutes. 83: The combined amount of minutes DeMarcus Cousins and Tyreke Evans were on the […]

Trading for Rudy Gay: Why?

Today, after Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports said Phoenix and Memphis were involved in trade talks with Rudy Gay, the Memphis Commercial-Appeal followed up with saying the Kings had inquired about Gay, too. Why? Seriously. Gay is a volume shooter who is decent in some ways, and is what he is.  Why do the Kings […]

Can the Kings fix the current logjam by trade?

Let's be honest: The logjam of G's does not work for this team, and part of the success for the players recently has been not dealing with the logjam of said G's. It's easier to operate if you have a better idea of how and where are you going to work ahead of time. It […]

Kings beat Cavaliers on road and other thoughts

Well it's been awhile since I compared Boogie Cuz to Marvin from The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy (and I'm right dammit!), but well, apparently DeMarcus Cousins got the message about what passing actually means from the right spots on the floor. It's amazing (and depressing) that the best passer on this team is Cousins who […]

DeMarcus Cousins is now suspended indefinitely: Better yet, so what?

My headline is serious. I'll leave this simple as I dont' really care that DeMarcus Cousins is not on the court. This is a guy averaging 16.5 points, 9.5 boards, 41.4% from the field shooting wise, and is one of the reasons the Kings are a terrible defensive team. Is Keith Smart or Geoff Petrie […]
