    Did Galloway have a Linsanity-esque stint in New York to make more than the minimum? Let alone 5 per?

    Skal is getting hot only instead of Tyler Ulis, the opponent is being led by the MVP.

    There it is! He just posted Steven Adams! This is encouraging!

    I have more confidence in him than WCS, and that's not an overreaction

    He's already shown more touch around the hoop than Kosta has as a King.

    I can't wait until PapaG drops another double-double and Grant changes his tune from "He's coming along nicely" to "YOURE WATCHING THE FUTURE OF SACRAMENTO KINGS BASKETBALL!"

    I was being snarky, but you guys all seem pretty impressed with him! Hopefully he does just as well the next time I watch him play!

    Pretty cool that the kid has himself a double/double.

    I'm not at all a fan of Langston. I'd rather give all his money to McBen and keep trying with him.

    Jerry, What does Galloway need to improve on?

    Well Grant, his salary is too damn high and he's signed for another year.

    Still 2 minutes left. He still has a chance to say his name REALLY. LOUD. After a basket.

    Papa G is sprinting up and down the floor. Imagine if Cousins did that as a King? The kid is hungry.

    Sabonis is taking shots from the perimeter like he's Kevin Durant but unfortunately he shoots threes like Kevin Willis.

    why didn't Vivek fall in love with McDermott? Not scrawny enough to be white Steph Curry?

    So maybe Papa G. is done with going back up to Reno?

    I don't care about the score today. Skal continues to show he is a legit offensive player and PapaG played better than anyone would have expected from him at the start of the season. (Or heck, even a week ago)

    I'll take games like this all day long.

    Well, Thanks to Papa G and Skal for making the second half watchable given the circumstances.

    I would like to see Papa G get upped to the 15-20 minute range for the rest of the season. I like Joerger not giving them too much rope right away.

    Also not a fan, but I don't want to give his money to Ben either. Past time to cut the cord with Mr. McLemore III.

    The one thing I will say is I was always skeptical of the bash on Vlade for drafting Papa G. I mean if theres anyone who can recognize a skilled big man it would certainly be him. One game, but only 19 and shows interesting stuff. Touch on his hook is very good and no reason it cant become automatic, at his size thats something. Even though he still carries some extra lbs he runs up and down fluidly for a man his size. Sprinting up and down and showing some serious motor. Laterally he isnt the quickest but is no worse than most 7 footers and if he trims down even more that can still improve. Most important thing is I see a willingness to work out there. Also he shows passing instincts, they need refining, but they are there, and at his size he can see the whole floor from the high post. Shockingly we just might have ended up with three keepers in this "bad" draft.

    Yea... Our glut of SGs allows both of them to disappear with no repercussions. Especially if Bogdanovic comes over.
  27. You're not alone. The thing that made me hyped for wcs was that he was hyped as a guy who could possibly guard 5 positions. His defense has looked horrible since he was drafted and it seems like he is using more energy trying to be an offensive threat. His game is becoming the opposite of what I hoped for with him.

    Maybe they meant he could guard 5 positions equally bad?

    Kosta was never a back-to-the-basket center. The Jazz destroyed him as an offensive player.

    Did'nt Papa draw comparisons to Marc Gasol as a youngster. Gasol also took time to develop so maybe thats not too far off. I'm real happy with todays stats. We have some very promising bigs and all young enough to grow together.

    Don't think the rules allow that.
