The Kings are about to go on some stupid 6-game winning streak aren’t they? Sac loves mid-late lotto picks.

At some point I hope we see Fox sidelined with some "nagging injury". The chances of us making the play in are slim to none so these games are meaningless for him. He's been playing so many minutes and playing out of his mind that the risk just isn't worth it at this point.

Yeah I want him to just sit. Removing Fox from the lineup should ensure that the team still tanks. I’d love to see Haliburton starting at PG for the rest of the season to see if he can develop a little more. Any wins with Hali at the helm would be welcome because that is obvious development. If they did that and still end up right outside of the 10 seed, I’d be fine with it. As of now, it’s kinda useless.

Our starting lineup is:

Fox
Hield
Harkless'
Barnes
Whiteside

No youth or development outside of Fox in that starting group which we should be prioritizing.

Whiteside and Haliburton played almost the same amount of minutes. That should not be happening. Walton is an awful coach and if he's not willing to play youth in a blown season, Monte's going to have to fire him. This is ridiculous.

Our primary goal should be losing while developing whatever young talent we have. Not playing vets, trying to beat the second to last team in the league, only to STILL lose. I don't care if Haliburton struggles. Let him play through it.
