Kings vs. Dubs Post-Game Recap (Warning: Grinch Edition!)

3844_heading_medium

  • If it is possible to miss a player that never played one game for the team, I miss Chuck Hayes.
  • DeMarcus treats the basketball like a red-headed step child.
  • Chuck would have brought the unique ability of a player along the Kings front-line who actually values the basketball.
  • Memo to Tyreke Evans: Its OK to have fun while playing. You don't have to pretend you are on your way to get a root canal by Dr. Jim Gray.
  • Memo to Klay Thompson: I have seen Kevin Martin play basketball. You are no Kevin Martin.
  • Chuckwagon had a 2:1 assist to turnover ratio last year. Our front line had 5 assists and 15 TOs tonight, or a 1:3 ratio.
  • If there is such thing as a moral win, the Dubs scored one. They hung tough without Stephan Curry.
  • Get well, Chuck. Find the best heart doctor out there. Heal, then let's deal.
  • If there is such a thing as a moral loss, score one for the Kings. Sloppy. Porous. Disjointed.
  • We have a player who swings between both forward spots and camps out at the 3-point line. His name is Donte Greene. Why did we waste $12 million dollars on Travis Outlaw? What was Geoff thinking?
  • Travis Outlaw is a bad basketball player. He has poor balance. He overruns plays. He camps out at the three point line when easier shots are available. He is not what this team needs.
  • Our two best players (Reke and Cousins) had 16 TOs? Rust or not, inexcusable. Improved efficiency from high usage players is imperative if this season is not to be a repeat of last. That kind of carelessness wins zero games once it counts.
  • I am 100% opposed to a philosophy of a head coach who rewards the player who played the best in previous game (Jimmer) by demoting him to the bench because he wants to experiment with a 2nd round pick (Honeycutt) as his starter in the last pre-season game.
  • Coaches may not think starting is important. Players do.
  • An offense that includes zero designed plays to get shots for Jimmer needs immediate tweaking.
  • Lose the goatee, Coach Westphal.
  • Marcus Thornton is underpaid.
  • For a high usage player, JJ Hickson showed discerning shot selection, 11 unforced FGAs in 30 minutes.
  • JJ Hickson will not make the all-defensive team in 2011-12.
  • After getting out-rebounded by the Dubs again, the one-year contract offer to Sammy D just increased by 250K.
  • The amount of increase is 250K more than I'd offer.
  • It was not pretty tonight but we won, and...
  • It's OK, we have Hasaan Whiteside.
  • It's OK, we have John Salmons.
  • It's OK, we just gave $12 million dollars to one of the worst players in the NBA.
  • It's OK, our head coach sports odd looking facial hair.
  • It's OK, the Lakers have Josh McRoberts.
  • It's OK, Marcus Thornton is open.
  • BREAKING! Donte Greene just called his agent.
  • BREAKING! Donte Greene just fired his agent.
  • BREAKING! Donte Greene just hired the agent of Travis Outlaw.
  • Tyler Honeycutt and Isaiah Thomas are terrific second round draft picks.
  • A terrific second draft pick does not mean you are ready for rotation minutes. But it might.
  • Isaiah Thomas is fearless. Jason Thompson should hang out with Isaiah Thomas.
  • The Kings currently have three star level players. When two out of three play well, we have a good chance to win. When all three play well, we can beat any team in the NBA. When only one plays well, we witness the type of game we saw tonight.
  • FREE Adrian (Oliver)!
  • Warning to KDT (Kings Dance Team): Stay away from Monta Ellis. No really, stay away.
  • Unless he can introduce you to Stephan. (Meow, soooo dreamy. Wait! What! Who said that?!?)
  • The Kings played their first home basketball game tonight in 8 months, when permanent departure seemed imminent.
  • The NBA is back. Life is good.
  • So is an electric razor, Coach Westphal.
