The tank is definitely at risk. Where is Livingston when we need him? Is Pargo available?


MJ, Cho, and Dunlap are probably laughing that the commissioner fines Gregg Popovich for withholding starters from two games. They are withholding wins every game. They are doing some epic tanking. I cannot fathom a tank so strong as the one in Charlotte.

Kobe just took a double pump fake, shoulder-in-to-make-space twice, turnaround fadeaway after staring down a wide open Jamison and missed. Shooting 3 of 16.

Now he's lighting it up in the 4th. 10 pts in 6 minutes on 4-5 shooting. ::shrug:: it's a compelling game though.

Watching the way Blatche is playing makes me nauseated.

Playing like the player he should have been.

One game after defeating the red-hot Wizards, the Sacramento Kings went on the road and lost to (EDITED--thanks, nuposse) MEMPHIS 69-85. Demarcus Cousins was 9-19 FG and finished with 22 points, 12 rebounds.

The rest of the Kings were 20-66 FG and all combined to score just 47 points.

--Has anyone considered that Demarcus Cousins doesn't have the best teammates?

--How good would Cousins be as a Wizard?

With Washington, DeMarcus Cousins would collectively have better teammates than he has in Sacramento.

I think it was Memphis they lost to. Which is kinda funny, because Memphis is a team we ought to model ourselves around IMO. Superior Bigs down low, with good low post passing and smothering wing defense. If we got Cousins I think we could easily become the grizzlies of the east.

I'm with you on Cousins, CCJ. Their point guard rotation isn't strong and I feel that's a big factor in a young big's development.

Having a point guard in Wall who (A) Cousins already knows, (B) has a great relationship/chemistry with and (C) has incredible court vision and passing ability would instantly turn Big Cuz into a 20/12/3 big with higher efficiency.

Touche...

We are STILL Wizards fans. I am sure KD has moved on from his Raptors infatuation...

Looks as if the Seattle Supersonics may be coming (back) to an arena near you...

What a mess.

The Sonics now own the Kings history while the Thunder own the Sonics history?

Stern/Silver better step in and remedy that right away. That is redonkulous.
