No Haliburton, Whiteside, or Parker (lol). This team’s only shot at winning is if Hayward is out. He’s doubtful at the moment. I’m hoping for a loss, but I’m borderline apathetic right now. I’m about to throw in the towel for following the team for the rest of the season.

Playing Joseph should literally he a fireable offense. From the 8ish min mark in the 2nd was probably the collective worst offensive- defensive sequence I've ever seen. And we have Buddy so I'm used to some real awful ****

Walton has to go, we lose a 4 point lead at home with 23 secs left

Joseph gets beat by Monk all game. Walton brilliantly puts him back in. Monk beats him easily. Why is Joseph still getting minutes?

16 minutes, 0pts, team leading-20. Its every game

Not even mad. This is good for the tank.

This team sucks with or without Walton.

The team has been fools gold for a good 2 or 3 years now.

I expected the loss. I thought the team kept up more than expected, but I had a sneaking suspicion the team was going to blow their lead before the Ball foul on Fox. The most Kangz-y loss in quite some time.

Sure Bagley and Fox missed those free throws at the end, but man they played pretty well for the rest of the game. It was actually promising. The whole starting lineup was fine and I don’t have many bad things to say about them. What wasn’t fine was the bench... The Kings have the worst bench in the league. I’ve defended Joseph many times in the past, but he needs to be benched... fully. Guy and James should’ve played in this game. Ramsey and Woodard need to be called up and given regular minutes moving forward.

As someone who wants a high pick I’ve got no problems with the L, but, they may be happening too frequently for the tank

They are going to have to fire Walton if things are out of hand

It’s kind of like you want them to play semi decently so they can ignore the Walton situation til after the year, because there is enough talent on the team to ruin draft position with Gentry

I get the fear, but I'm hoping McNair just ends up selling our vets at the deadline so we can tank and blame it on youth development instead.

The fact nothing has happened yet, though, is worrying. Bjelica has been on the trade block for a while now with nothing to show for it, Buddy's value (despite a good offensive showing last night) is in the toilet, and Barnes was great last night other than the last foul but he's expensive and not going to move the needle for a team like the Celtics who were showing interest earlier.
