It's been some time since I popped into the Kings Rap forum. I departed KF.com in a huff when Demarcus was traded, and I still maintain my insistence that it was an awful deal that would haunt this franchise for the next half-decade as they struggle to replace his talent. But I still pop into the forum every now and again to see what's what, despite the fact that I've basically left my fandom at the door. Out of sheer morbid curiosity, I tuned in for my first Kings game of the season on Thursday, just in time to watch Fox go down with an injury. Good timing, right? I'm not sure what this team has on its hands. There are a few interesting pieces, but what are they going to amount to? Are there any clear starters amongst these young fellas? I hadn't watched any games before Thursday, so I don't have much insight into De'Aaron Fox, but it seems like he hasn't impressed thus far. There's time, of course, and point guards are often slow to develop. I'm glad to see that the losses are piling up for the Kings, though. They'll need another very high draft pick just for the sake of hoping that this roster might become competitive someday. Good on all of you who've managed to stick around. Seems a bit miserable in Kingsland these days. Then again, when has it not been so, apart from a few short years of glory at the turn of the millennium?
