    Final game of the first season of the Kings in G1C...and what a long strange trip it's been.

    Sometimes you get show the Light,
    In the Strangest of Places,
    If you look at it Right.

    I can tell the Queen of Diamonds by the way she shines.

    A bit of a Dead Head are ya? Let me guess, with a Ponderosa Pine to kick in your yard, you live up Grass Valley Nevada City way.

    Kinda. I live in the middle of the Plumas National Forest, with lots less human population to contend with. :p (The nearest "town" has a census-reported population of 142.)

    Beautiful area. Went camping and hiking there as kid.
    I was never that into the Dead but as a teenager I did make it to a couple new years at Winterland with the Dead. Can't say I remember too much about the events.

    I have great memories of that area too. Used to go camping at a lake in my childhood just outside Nevada City. Nevada City was king when I was an early teenager

    I was stationed at Beale AFB when I was a young man. Used to head out the back gate in my TR4a and head to Grass Valley/Nevada City. Later in life I spent a lot of time in the Graeagle area. My Father in Law and I hunted all over the A Tree area near Johnsville and fished a little to. Good times:) What ball game?:)

    Plumas a long time ago. In 1940 I took a bus (several buses And by myself at age 10) from Sacramento to Westwood where a friend my age was spending the summer with his grandparents, folks from Norway. Grandpa was a foreman at the lumber mill that owned the town. Had homemade cookies and warm milk at bedtime. Great adventure for a kid.

    P.S.: I think it as the summer of 1941.

    About 60 miles away (in the summer) and about 85 miles away when there's snow on the ground and the road between LaPorte and Quincy is closed. :)

    Sounds like we all love the Sierra, Cascade mountain range. amazing river systems throughout. Sorrry VF21 but that sleepy little population of 142 might just grow.
    Good distraction from this miserable month of tanking.

    VF21, I'm impressed that you really do live in the woods. Put me down, I want to read your book when it comes out.

    My family (hundreds of us) nave a remote 791 acres in Mendocino National Forest. I've been going there for a time or two each year since 1937. Old cook cabin and sleeping areas for semi-roughing-it, a little deer hunting, a little pasture golf, a little hiking, eating and an occasional refreshment, and a little maintenance. Now I'm just good enough for sitting on a log, telling tales, and enjoying Liar's Flat.

    Most important game of the season

    I don't want to see either PGs/Temple or any other plus player besides the youth playing

    Suns are "resting" 20 year old Booker.
  17. VF21

    VF21 #KingsFansForever Staff Member Contributor

    He's probably still recovering from that 70 point outing. Let's be real. Against us, he might really wear himself out...and break Wilt's record. :p
  18. upinsmoke

    upinsmoke Well-Known Member

    Release McLemore at the point.
  19. Suicide King

    Suicide King Well-Known Member

    Or just release the Krakken. Enough messing around.

    Buddy should be rested then. We need to be doing whatever we can

    Really disappointed with the Suns resting players.... especially Booker. Grade A ***holes.

    They should just be honest and give him the DNP - Tank

    There oughtta be a rule against blatantly tanking like that. Resting a 20 year old with only one game remaining in the season? How can that be justified?!

    OKC Resting Westbrook, Taj and Roberson vs the Twolves.

    Denver might rest some players as well since they are eliminated from the playsoffs. The Maves are honoring Tony Romo tonight in Dallas. This might also be Dirks last game at home. I would think they would send him off with a win.

    Guess we will see tonight. I hate this.

    So some of you are mad because the Suns are tanking? I have no words.

    I'm not mad at the Suns, I hate the idea of tanking altogether. I think the NBA should be concerned that organizations are taking steps to lose games on purpose. I know not all fans will be bothered by it, but it will turn some people off and this year is the worse I've seen it.

    Nuggetts and OKC are resting their entire teams so Dallas and TWolves should win, also both at home. NO has shut down Davis and Cousins so LA should take it. So possibly not much should change in the standings today. Flip of the coin with the Twolves likely.
