    Another Sunday matinee...I can hardly contain my glee.

    Looks like both Malachi and DeAaron may be sitting this one out. They are currently (as of Saturday 3 pm) both listed as "game time decisions" but most of the stuff I've seen on Twitter seems to indicate the Kings will probably just rest both of them.

    It's cold up here...and windy as all get out (a phrase my great-grandmother used to use all the time that I never really understood). Little disconcerting for those people who live in the areas of Bangor and Loma Rica and are still trying to put their lives back together after the fires. Always a concern when you live in the middle of a forest, too. Especially when we haven't had a lot of rain yet this year. When the wind comes roaring through the tall pines, it sounds like a freight train. I normally love listening to storms from inside the safety of my little abode but wind is something else. One of those trees falling on your house can definitely ruin your day.

    Not too much to say about the game. We just played the Raptors - and it didn't go particularly well. Without Fox, I'll probably being focusing on Mason, Bogs and WCS and how well they when they're on the court together. Heck, add Hield and Skal to the mix and see if they can make things work.

    It's a good day to be a Kings fan.

    GO KINGS!

    Raptors are used to these early games so they will do their due diligence and properly spank this team

    Would be nice to see Skal play a bit more but I'd rather see Papa. With Fox out, that usually means he gives opportunity to Jackson.

    LOL. Maybe that where the phrase, "Get out of here!" came from.

    I'll be disappointed if Fox can't play. This could get ugly fast. At least we should see more Skal and probably Big George.

    I want Papa to get 30 minutes. Every single night. (Foul trouble permitting) He's one of the few Kings I'm interested in seeing play.

    Yes! This is exactly what I want to see as the 1/3 mark passes. Hopefully we will find an exponential growth to his rests/game, to 100% in the last 10 games.
    Also, I think we can fairly judge our talent now. Gonna take a good hard look at Skal and Bogie this game.

    Ah, a classic case of "be careful what you wish for" as far as Z-Bo is concerned.

    In other news, I love the claw logo. In fact, if I weren't a Kings fan, the Toronto Raptors mascot would definitely be my favorite.

    GO KINGS!

    Well, this looks better than I thought it would at the start. Of course, I realized last night the guys are probably still on California time so it's not quite as early as our Sunday matinees here.

    Resting Z-Bo was an interesting strategy on Joerger's part. I think part of it might actually have been to totally blow up the Raptors game plan. :p

    Is PapaG the GOAT?

    I'm actually enjoying this. Papa G DOES seem to be getting better, although I've seen him get away with moving screens a couple of times. I just want to see the usual stuff - heart, hustle, energy and effort. As long as they do that I can be content.

    Not for nothing but Papa still looks more comfortable playing basketball than Skal does

    I don't mean this as a slight to Koufos, he's a useful player but I want each and every one of his minutes to be PapaG's from here on out.

    Oops. Sorry. That was supposed to go in another thread. I'd move it but I think I'm the only one in here anyway. :p

    I'm in here for 12 more minutes. (Then I'm bailing to the Garapollos, errr Niners!) :p

    Papa G is coming along because Joerger isn't pushing him too hard too fast. What's the hurry?
  28. VF21

    VF21 #KingsFansForever Staff Member Contributor

    Wait. This is all kids out there and they're not sucking. :)

    Put WCS in there in place of Skal and let's see what happens. I just don't see Skal contributing very much at the moment. I LIKE MASON AND BOGS together...a lot.

    PapaG HAS proven capable when given his spot minutes both this year in very very limited action and last season after THE TRADE. It's not like Koufos is a minute monster; so trade him and give that time to Papa.

    It's not like he's a lost puppy at all times, then I would get it if he didn't get any minutes.
