2 months, 3 weeks ago on Season in Review: Jrue Holiday
@Michael Pellissier @al asifyouknow
Did not see this until today so let me just answer you one more time.
As always time will tell.
Facts are Mr. Demps has not done a good job there. The records don't lie.
Facts are Holiday and Evans will just collect a pay check and after Monty or Demps get fired the Pelicans -once again- will be looking for dump big contracts as you have - unsuccessfully- with Gordon.
By the way, you asked me who said the Pelicans wanted to dump Evans, just Google " New Orleans Pelicans looking to trade Evans" be prepare to read about 100 articles.
Wish you guys well. Demps made a mistake and until you guys get big inside so you can complement Davis you will keep losing. Remember who told you.
Have a nice year.
Get it done Monty. Dont just tell us about do it !

3 months ago on Season in Review: Jrue Holiday
Michael we were doing great until the trolling thing, I know is some kind of derogatory remark but I honestly don't get the concept.
I'M A HUGE NBA FAN. I'm a blogger, opinion maker and a decent writer. Basically a fan with an opinion, we can agree there is no crime in that.
I watched New Orleans play the Cavaliers during the Vasquez era, I also went this year to see Davis play.
Mr. Davis does look bigger than last year (I was about 3 rows from floor both times) he did fight for position and was winning. That was not the case a few years ago, I watched the worse team in the NBA, Cavs, push you guys around at will, that is why my thinking was that you needed some bigs.
Holiday and Evans did not improve your situation, the record shows that, Michael I’m sort of big on stats but maybe I’m reading it wrong.
A healthy Vasquez would of done a better job for you guys if he had some NBA players, you at least must admit that he played with mostly D-league players a few years ago and you should also know the only legit NBA talent was hurt most of the year (Davis, Anderson and Gordon).
I say healthy Vasquez because, as you may not know, he played in pain with bone spurs in his foot most of the season. I never had those but I understand is like having broken glass in you shoes , it hurts like hell.
Demps should of spend those 60 plus millions on some inside guys and there were plenty available, lets say like Howard, and keep Vasquez even as a backup.
Let me give you some stats , vasquez spend most of this season recovering from the surgery but after the all-star game he was back to about 95% and his stats were:
In 25 minutes 12 pts. 4 ass and 46% from 3 point land, 43% fg 88% ft and when paired with Lowry the best backcourt in the NBA (the last on is a fantasy stats of course, personally not a big fan of them but ..) and was along with Lowry and DeMar the big shot makers on the team, Vaz was not a fill in , he was a big reason why Toronto went to . the Playoffs. Raptors had the best record in the east after the trade with the Kings.
The Vasquez dump was all on Demps because he wanted the speed gurds, here ios what you guys got:
Evans can be described very simply..He is a Rudy Gay junior everybody knows that, no argument there.
Holiday should actually be a SG, not a great dribbler or, in my opinion, a great passer, he is more of a turn over machine .than Vaz was. There is a reason why the king and Phill did not want them.
So yes Michael you did not in any way improved the team, Demps made a 60 mill mistake and now you have about 80mill in contracts wrapped around three gourds, who in the hell does that, well maybe Miami.
Look I understand your gig in the pelicans and you most hold the home fans but honestly can you tell me this is a better team.
Nice talking to you,
Honest to God I still don't understand how your GM spends 60 mill plus in contracts in guards and you get a few more wins than a 2.5 mill player like Vasquez was giving you and actually still have a job.
If I was the owner and my guy went out and spend that kind of dough he better dam well get me at least a .500 season.
Here is the best part, in mid-season Demps was trying like hell to dump Evens and had no luck.
Head scratcher for sure.
Some folks were talking about what great defenders they were, well maybe they had an off year but honestly they were both sub-par defenders. The Hornets record will tell you that.
Even though I’m a spurs fans I’ve been watching New Orleans the last few years because Vasquez was there and after he left because I like Davis and Anderson.
Seen you guys live a few times a few rows from the floor when Vaz was there and what became obvious to me is that you got pushed around the paint like rag dolls, it was clear that you needed some muscle inside and not two more point guards. I know some folks think one of them is a shooting guard, I can‘t figure which one to pick .
One more question .. What is Rivers still doing there?
I checked in on games for most of the season..Cuzz, Rudy and Thomas are still hoarding the basketball. So where is the change of culture?
Thomas saying that is changing does not make it so.
You have to ask yourself why did four bench players go to a losing team and change their culture?
There is an easy answer to that, they bought into a team and share concept, the Kings did not.
All I remember from fans as I fallowed Vasquez was Salmons sucks and Vasquez sucks and Patterson and Hayes are bums etc etc .
Now they are a big contributor to a division winner and a playoff team. Honestly I hope the Kings turn it around but as long as you have a guy like Cuzz playing for himself nothing will change.
Just an opinion from a big NBA fan.

How about taking a look at your new back-up point guard for next year...lol..#21
5 months, 2 weeks ago on Game On: Toronto Raptors at New Orleans Pelicans
@KingsAllDay Like to know your take on Malone's slam on this team a few days ago??
5 months, 3 weeks ago on Turnovers handicapping Sacramento Kings offense
By the way I don't use suck to describe anybody who gets pay to play, I respect every player, so you are making that up...
@KingsAllDay Fair enough but if you hang your hat on this trio you will lose year after year.
Please remember who told you...I believe you are losing this season, maybe not..... I may reading the wrong stats...
I'm not going into the defensive ranks, but you can look it up, the good thing is that if you have Cuzz and IT in a fantasy team you are a winner, but that is the only place those guys are going to win. You can bet the house on that.
Wow ..how about Malone's slam on the team...My question to Malone would be ..When did you notice that?
I noticed that from day one and I'm not a coach. I could see that Cuzz wanted no part of the "passing thing" that is why he took the ball and would purposely dribble form one end to the other just to show everybody he needed no one (being sarcastic here but far from the truth).
The kings wasted lots of money to build a foundation on a guy who needs about 5 years of growing up and that might not be enough.
The Kings owner just wasted lots money on a guy who has all the talent in the world but cant play with others.
AND THEN you get the most selfish player ever ..RUDY GAY ...oh my God what the heck did this team expect.
I can't turn a blind eye on this, the fans in Sacramento were Tebowing (begging for Thomas) and they got exactly what I wrote on an article in SBnation Sacramento site that actually got me banned from that site (I was heartbroken..lol) .
Thomas will score a million points and fill the stat sheet, that's great if you have him in your fantasy league, but in the real NBA he will not lead a basketball team to a playoff run.
He is not a point guard, he is a shooter, period, he does get decent assists but you can clearly see he does not set up the guys, he just wings it, he also misses lots of open guys.
Am I wrong?
Most of you wanted to lynch Vasquez who was only doing what he thought Malone wanted, he could never get this team to fallow.
Malone in my opinion has a rope around his neck and that is Cuzz, anything this coach does has to please Cuz.
Sorry guys but if you want to get serious you got to clean house, get some high character guys in the San Antonio style. right now you got the- Bermuda Triangle- as your top guys, you know that place where the ball goes in and is never seen again.
So Malone is right, this is a selfish team, what I don't understand is how did he not see this from day one, I'm 10 IQ points from being an idiot and I got it.
@KMFA @al asifyouknow I can't say that Malone is terrible because I'm just a fan but from what I've see so far. THIS GUY IS TERRIBLE !lol
I'm afraid Cuz will become the Mailman Karl Malone who was one of the best interior man in the history of the NBA but never won a championship.

6 months, 2 weeks ago on Road Reaction Postgame Show: Sacramento Kings 106, New York Knicks 101
@SSSDMC15 jammer won the game period....
Good fight by the Kings even without Cuzz......I watched the game and enjoyed it very much, Rudy looked good and for the most part controlled (that is all this guy needs to be a real superstar).
Sorry IT fans this guy is not good at team ball, he has no clue on how to lead a team. Is all I'm going to say about that.
Kings should keep Jimmer as a back-up spot up shooter and trade IT for some more bigs and draft a big time PG.
@layituplikeaman Really? huu you had one....
6 months, 3 weeks ago on Road Reaction Postgame Show: Washington Wizards 93, Sacramento Kings 84
@Cowbb lol.........remember sometimes one gets what one asks for and 70 % of you folks were asking for it...well there you got it....a hell of a scorer who won't win anything...
@ppellico And that surprises you why? lol....Look the guy is who he is, this new owner got played by giving this guy the team with a max contract, this will be like a rope around the Kings neck....Shame.... Sacramento deserves better...
Cuzz, Rudy and IT are all one on one guys....Good luck..
@KennethBrody @layituplikeaman LOL....lmao....lol...thank you!! I feel better,,,,lol
6 months, 3 weeks ago on Isaiah Thomas faces growing pains as Sacramento Kings starting point guard
@SacKings Thank you ...again I also said that from week one ...this coach can't get this guys to do what he wants, Cuz does what ever the hell he wants. That big contract by the new owner basically gave Cuzz the team...big mistake by this new owner...
@KDsmooth @al asifyouknow Hey if I had a fantasy team he be on it for sure if I owned a real NBA team he would not...
Why are you folks surprised about IT's "zero ability" to lead a tem? I told you guys that from day one when Vaz got the job and most of you were complaining... IT is a good back up as a SG, a gunslinger if you will, he is not an NBA PG. Period......
@KDsmooth Not great fantasy numbers is it? But there is another side to the NBA, in that league you have to win games...and IT is NOT winning.... but is a great fantasy pick, problem is fantasy stats don't get you a playoff team...
Look Malone is not a good coach, another coach basically took his team and made them winners, same junk players that the Kings did not want. Go figure..
@TABDOG @layituplikeaman I hope the kid gets paid next year because IT will be a bust in a few years...........at least he will have some money...lol

6 months, 4 weeks ago on Raptors' Greivis Vasquez, John Salmons speak on their return to Sacramento
Cuzz will eat up JV inside other than that should be an even game....I look for Kings to win at home, they should be pumped up.. this game is not as meaningful to the Raptors plus they are a little banged up....Kings by 5...
6 months, 4 weeks ago on Toronto Raptors keep tabs on former teammates turned Sacramento Kings
@layituplikeaman Hey you are right that conf is not in the real NBA...you so won the argument ...see you in the playoffs.....
6 months, 4 weeks ago on DeMarcus Cousins talks Sacramento Kings return from lengthy injury layoff
@layituplikeaman 42 the last 10 games, but who cares, facts are win or lose Wednesday they are going to the playoffs, can we at least agree on that?
@jb MF @al asifyouknow Agree on all,,,The question still remains ....Is he going to the playoffs ???
Yea now his foot is healed last 10 games 10 ppg. 6 assist and 3 rebounds...don't be a hater bro...lol...lol...lol....as a back-up on a playoff team....
But IT is a better point guard 20 pts a game 8 ass and loosing games and no chance for the playoffs... just like you, being brutally honest my brother...saying...
Very interested in seeing how the fans receive their old back-ups who have helped turn around Toronto instantly........looking forward to the game...Toronto is going to the playoffs so even if Kings win it wont matter.
Salmons has become a defensive beast over there and Patterson has been great, Vasquez is back, the last 10 games have been great and even Hayes is helping and they got rid of Rudy.....A hell of a deal...
@layituplikeaman IT is not even to 30..sorry
7 months ago on Is Isaiah Thomas just a good player on a bad team?
What's happening with IT was predictable . Fans got blinded by the shine.
This guy is not a point guard, scoring a million points and even assisting a bunch still does not make a PG.A true PG is a coach on the floor, is that simple....you could tell from the get go he had no clue what was going on the floor.
That is why that so called bum by most Kings fans started, this coaches knew this but had to give in to fanhood pressure...
@Cowbb :" My personal opinion in response to James question is that Thomas will be a good significant 6th man on a winning team. "
I've said that from day one....
San Antonio needs to replace the roll Mano does there, and I'M NOT SAYING THAT Thomas is as good, not even close, but under Pops for a few years and if he has the will to put up with the coaching he may turn out to be a very good player (Parker said Pops used to make him cry when he was a rookie'''lol''truly) now he admits that Pops made him the players he is.
IT has all the fire that Mano has but his skills need to be controlled. As you all know I came here fallowing Vaz , I've been a spurs fan since David Robinson. But I do like a few of the players here, Cuzz,IT, Mac................ hope no one gets mad at me but the Kings need and experienced hard ass type of coach to get this guys going,,,
