    And so the saga continues...

    It's a real winter up here for the first time in years. Snow, wind, downed power lines, closed roads, cold that numbs you to your very bones...and that's a walk in the park compared to watching Kings games lately.

    Why do we do it? Good question but those of us still here know the sad truth. There is no answer to the question. We're doomed, much like Sisyphus

    At the very least, it'll be fun seeing Ty Lawson tear up Rajon Rondo's "defense"

    What are the Bulls doing? Always loosely follow them because they were a childhood fav because of MJ. I didn't think the signings of Rondo and Wade were all that wise for them, and now there's rumors they could go after Bosh :confused: if the Heat release him. Also heard rumors they could blow it all up and shop Jimmy. Kind of a similar situation to us with having a great individual talent and an ineptitude/lack of direction in the FO.

    The Bulls are an interesting matchup:

    On one hand - they're the best rebounding team in the NBA
    (One of our weaknesses: we're 29th... only Mavs are worse)

    On the other hand, they are the worst in the NBA in 3pt%...
    (Another weakness: we tend to get our *** kicked from the 3)

    Think you know how it's gonna end?

    A fan has gotta do what a fan has got to do!

    Yes. No mamby-pamby, start Richardson and bring in Labissiere with the second unit. Real first half experience. You hope that Joerger will get Vlade and Vivek's permission. Fast track it.

    Joerger still might be more worried about his record than organizational long term viability

    But this team isn't good now, and preserving the pick while playing the youth is in the teams best interest

    I've went from wanting WCS benched to wanting him to play because the goals of the season have changed, but I still wonder if Joerger understands that

    If you listen to the Grizz broadcast there play by play guy said he talked to Dave before the game and Dave said "that they will play the vets because we are a veteran team" basically and they need a goal for the rest of the season...........

    A win would be wonderful right about now.

    Go Kings!

    Is there anything worse than a mediocre veteran team? Even a really bad veteran team can at least say it can't get any worse.

    Low expectations would be far more than I actually have right now.

    This season has taken such a bad turn that I didn't see coming at all. Yet I'm here. I'll be here when this game goes to **** and I'll be here each and every game the rest of the way.

    Ahhhhhhh the life of a #KANGZ fan. :(

    Collison is problem number one

    In one year we've gone from supporting a solid player to watching a morose player go through the motions and wanting him gone

    The lack of energy from certain starters saps the rest

    I'm here ... at least for now. The wind is starting to pick up and the forecast says we could get about a foot of new snow overnight. I've been lucky here...only about 8 inches of snow on the ground. A little further up the road got well over a foot and the little town of LaPorte (at about 5,000 ft) is without power and has close to 6 feet of snow on the ground. Old man winter is not fooling around...and I hope the Kings don't fool around either. (See what I did there?) We need a decent showing.

    I went from big DC supporter/apologist to wanting him gone, myself.

    The team is garbage because the players play like garbage.

    Why is it so hard to try, especially when you're being paid a huge amount of money to **** around with a ball?

    Remember when the Kings acquired Robin Lopez but gave him away?

    He would have been the best big Cuz has ever played with.

    Yeeeh, SF driving baseline gave me a sad little flashback.

    "The Butler did it..." I knew Jerry would say it. I'm glad he "got it out of the way."

    Cuz's teammates cost him probably 3 or more easy assists a game. I know not every basket can be made, but these are easy shots that Cuz pretty consistently sets up.

    Afflalo may have missed that last one but I suppose that's an upgrade from getting his first couple blocked . . .

    I've never heard of him. & He shoots threes.

    He's going to have a career night, isn't he?

    Man, this team may not ever top 100 points again this season.

    Watching the Kings feels different to me these days. No matter how bad the team has been I enjoyed watching the games. For the first time ever it's starting to feel like an obligation or a chore.

    Affalo is washed up. Because of his injury history, he moves worse than fellow washed up player Matt Barnes. Affalo's RPM is 433 out of 438 players....6th worst in NBA. How bad is that? Three spots worse than Ben McLemore. :eek: I thought maybe Affalo would have better success as a SF....but meh, its not happening. Unless he has a rare hot streak or post ups, but whatever he does he'll have longer cold streak.

    I cannot remember so many useless players on one Kings team in their history. Affalo just lost his balance catching the ball.... PATHETIC!!!
