Can we just rest Fox, Haliburton, and the vets for the rest of the season? Just start Guy, Davis, James, Woodard, and Jones? I’m sure that team will at least come out swinging, albeit inefficiently. At this point, I just want something to develop. Stop playing vets in these meaningless games. We need to lose the next 17 games.

Their inconsistency is absolutely ridiculous. I wouldn’t call them terrible overall (even though I believe I’ve called them that in the past). We’ve seen them play really good basketball, but they just lose themselves during streaks (both ways). It’s infuriating in ways that I don’t think we’ve seen in past years. Fox needs help fast, but he also needs to learn how to lead better. He can go out and score all he wants, but it’s obvious the communication is still lacking. We already know Walton is a part of that, but not the whole thing.

I didn’t watch the game (because I was certain of the outcome), but I just thought I’d come here and say... the Kings suck and Walton is trash. You play Whiteside 23 minutes vs. Jones’ 5 in a meaningless game? Why not see what you have in Jones? Play Woodard. Play Ramsey. Play Guy. Any of the young guys.

Hard to believe Walton is still coaching this team.

Fox got smacked across the head on a layup and no one made a peep. Not only should that have been a flagrant 1, but Walton should’ve been screaming. It’s not surprising, but I’m genuinely curious what will be the last straw. (I know there is an argument to be had that maybe Walton didn’t see, but I’m refusing to acknowledge that at this point)
