Thread was originally titled Kings @ Kings. In retrospect, I maybe should have left it as we do seem to be our own worst enemy most of the time...

The clowns running the team that still have vets trying to compete I don’t know what to say

Waiting til Barnes has no value

It’s either Vivek or McNair

In before our board blames fox for us getting blown out.

Not the fact we have 11th and 12th men as our starting front court, Hali disappeared the entire half, and Barnes is absolute trash!

He should have been traded last off-season.

It's both. Monte was touted as the savior. I at least appreciated vlades aggressive approach. This guy is so safe it makes me sick.

Watching Harrison Barnes decline this season makes me sick. 3x per game he drives and doesn't even get a shot off. Most overrated player on the team. Not a needle mover for us. Would be fine as a 4th guy on a good team asked to spot up and play defense

Sad to think the temptation of 10th seed. May not permit us to make long term roster moves.

I'm not a McNair fan at all, I just have to wonder if Vivek let's him do anything.

I couldn't really watch the second half. That was disappointing to say the least.

I think you could be right about the temptation. I have no doubt the objective is obviously playoffs and ownership would be pushing for that.
Getting rid of Barnes, Buddy etc doesn't achieve that, well on the surface at least.

Had a convo with a family member earlier. I've been saying Monte is just way too safe and really hasn't proven anything. Family member says "I think he did a great job last deadline getting guys he liked who fit".

Reminded my family member those guys were davis, harkless, delon Wright. Not exactly game changers.

The haliburton pick was nice, but it seems painfully obvious he's not saving this team. Mitchell ehhh, seems like a decent bench pg, but he's 23 years old and has tons of limitations.

I'm expecting to see us move buddy to Celtics or Lakers, probably move on from Bagley now that he's shown he can play the last 2 weeks. We will get a bunch of meh in return. No real piece to add to the team.
