The Kings are underachieving yet again. Lots of careless turnovers from Buddy. This team needs to pull it together. Barnes and CoJo have been important.

De’Aaron needs to work on his free throws so much. This is terrible.

This team has looked much better with CoJo on the floor than Fox.

It was awesome watching the Patriots lose. Now I'm debating if I should kill my high by turning the Kings game on.

Kings are winning, but there have been some infuriating pieces to this game. Fox has been bad. No Bogi. CoJo has been good. Barnes has been a rock. It’s a weird game.

Buddy and Fox the least valuable players of the game

His motor seems to not be much of an issue today. He’s just been making poor decisions.

Justin James deserves playing time.

Agreed. I can’t believe I want CoJo and James in over Buddy and Fox.

I hate to say this, but it feels like this is a wrap on the season. Vlade should heavily consider moving the vets. Better yet, Vivek should heavily consider firing Vlade.

James should have Ariza’s spot in the rotation. This is a building team

What an anticlimactic ending.

This team will never get it right. They don’t have the right coaching staff and not the right mix of players to get into the playoffs despite how weak the lower West has been.

Need to start shipping players out for value and picks. Blow it up.

100% agreed. Unfortunately I don’t think they are convinced of that. They are 2 games out of the 8 seed, so I expect them to march forward like all is well.

Vlade killed all the momentum this team had by firing Joerger. He wasn’t perfect, but he was pushing the right buttons with this team. They were fun and playing good ball. They were overachieving. Now we are seeing the aftermath. Vlade needs to go. Too many mistakes and I’m sick of it. Get rid of him and bring in someone who can correct this. Trade all the vets away for picks. They deserve better. We deserve better. Vivek and Vlade should be ashamed. The players should be ashamed. Walton should be ashamed.

Trade everyone. Now. Can’t believe they passed on Luka.

I’m with you, though at this point getting rid of the vets might win us more games. Something wrong about the chemistry/mix

Getting rid of the vets isn't going to convince Fox and Hield to stop treating the NBA like a pick up game. I'm so sick of watching both of them. I'd rather watch the team when Fox was out who actually played professionally (other than Hield who has consistently made me want to turn off the TV all year).

Fox is at least salvageable since he seems like he actually has a decent BBIQ and has room for growth. Hield on the other hand is a JR Smith. Dump him for value before other teams realize he is worthless. Most probably already have.

Buddy, I think either is going through the growing pains of expanding his game or just needs to be asked to be a shooter again

Fox, I’m not his biggest fan, relatively. Motor is innate, I can only say that. Now, we have a years worth of material last year to say if a ball busting coach is in his ear he can play hard for above 50% of the time and be good, and I’ve seen some game management development, but still, it wouldn’t stop me from trying to get at VanVleet or drafting a PG if that’s BPA. Fox can play with them or just not start if he’s going to go the way of Tyreke.

Return to Sacramento Kings
