    There's something really fulfilling about watching a bunch of kids come together as a team and win...even if it's against another bunch of kids. The Magic game was ... well ... Magic. :)

    We head into Phoenix to face a team also looking for a high spot in the draft lottery. The rosters for tonight's game should be interesting. Will we rest veterans again? Looking at the Injury report, Alex Len is a game-time decision for the Suns. There's also a question mark about Tyreke Evans.

    The mascot for the Suns is "The Suns Gorilla"... Seems like they could have found him a name. ;)

    Damn nervous about a two game winning streak here... I hate this time of year, so exciting to see the kids play but can't root while heartedly for our guys to win

    The only team i am worried about out tanking us are the Knicks. We will finish no higher than 7th and I cant see us having a worse record than Orlando or Philly. Im almost certain we finish 6th or 7th and NO 8-10.

    Never understood the Suns gorillla thing as is, but no name?

    Hoping the young bloods have fun and learn more of the system.

    Sure you can. :) I feel better rooting for them to win, especially when I'm sitting at home and probably not going to have a direct impact on the outcome of the game.

    If the kids play and win, I'm a-okay with every single win.

    If Arron Afflalo, Kosta Koufos, and Tyreke Evans spearhead a victory, I'll be less than pleased.

    The Sixers are competing, wouldn't surprise me if they won around 6 more games. So we can afford to win a few.

    If we win it better be because our youth looked good though, not sub par vets who won't be here long term

    Remember when our mascot was an occasional borrowed gorilla, named

    Watching this kings team after the Boogie trade is like watching your home burn to the ground. Just when you think all hope is lost, and your crying amidst the rubble...your kitty and puppy emerge from the fire unharmed and stronger then ever! It's then that you realize that maybe not all is lost, and your best days are still ahead of you!

    The Lakers are the most obvious team playing to lose. Now it appears Mosgov and Deng will not play even though nothing is wrong with them. I so hope they are bumped out of the top 3 and lose their pick to Philli, however the Lakers have not been bumped back in their recent lottery stretch.

    I think your right that we will finish no higher than 6 or 7. New Orleans seems to be jelling a bit lately. That is potentially OK as it decreases their chance of a top 3 pick but it will lower our 2nd first rounder a bit. Its a tight race for lottery position.

    Today, I too hope the youngins get plenty of playing time. They will try to win but I recon its a Suns victory as they try and are playing at home.

    O/T - I started a pick 'em for March Madness. Look in the Fantasy & Games forum. Come one, come all. :)

    When my father and I first started attending games in the 80's and into the 90's, the Kings sometimes borrowed the Gorilla for some of their games. Only a handful or so a year. It was sorta a big deal to us when we attended a game the Gorilla was at. The team wasn't any good then but the antics of the Gorilla was generally entertaining and sometimes salvaged a disappointing game.

    Good to see Ty getting starter looks. Need to decide who to keep between him and Collison

    WCS on the bubble. Can he grow into consistent starter. Is he a 4/5? Can he play 5 full time?

    Afflalo playing ahead of Ben makes little sense. Afflalo has no future here. Ben needs a last look

    Chriss has the greenest of green lights, doesn't he?

    The Kings own first rounder is most likely going to Chicago to finally fulfill the Casspi/ JJ Hickson trade. The 2nd that came in the Cousins deal is indirectly from Philly.

    I'm quite happy to see PapaG on the floor. I think these few minutes will be so good for him in the long run. Not enough to completely expose him and break him, but enough to give him a taste and know what he needs to work towards. Bravo.

    A couple nice passes so far, as well.

    He needs to tighten those screens up. He seems a little unsure of himself (to put it nicely) on the offensive side of the ball.

    Not a bad showing by big Papa so far.
