Bio not provided
Makes no sense what you say. and this is again what I call giving the coach and staff all the benefits and allowing them to have it both ways.
For IF the rookies are going to be given the minutes so they can show what they have and get the experience...then the playing of Evans is totally opposite of this philosophy.
His being in the rotation shows me he is still trying to win at all cost...it is just he has no talent or plan.
And I still say Gray sitting every game is stupid.
And after this season, when both Gray and I are are gone...this city and team will still be stuck with the greatest pouter since Howard in Cousins.
This big cry baby bully of a player would be horrible to play next to. A Michael Jordan wannabe who WANTS to demands team leadership but he himself cannot walk the talk. This big silly pretend bully is in trouble more often than not and gets shut down more than all other team superstars.
Good friggin luck.
8 months, 3 weeks ago on Sunday Musings: Sacramento Kings limp to finish
this is so strange a recap. Is there no real fairness or understanding of the game...or even what it means to play this game?
Look...OK..you know this team.
But to hit on Gray after you yourselves admit he had 10 straight games where he wasn't allowed to play.
Think about it...you are sat for 10 friggin games...not to mention actual number of days this equals of not playing. Night after night you get to play time.
You get to play time to get in sync with teammates or even the feel for time and plays.
Then you poke him for being out of sync early on.
So again...I ask if you have ever played any competitive sports. I know you haven't seen the floor of an NBA game..so you have no idea how fast it is or hard it is to compete.
But the way to question Gray's ability.
What you should REALLY be asking is WHY this dumb ass coach would sit him for ten games when you know he will be needed.
A player needs to see the floor for a few minutes to even think about playing in a game.
tell me...how many players do you know can sit for even a few games...then come in and be effective?
Really...this is stupid stuff.

@KingsAllDay no seriously...are you allowed to talk to adults? nobody can talk to one who simply throws around random crap that has nothing to do with what everybody else is talking about.
WHO EVER SAID GRAY SHOULD EVEN START let alone play over and more than Cousins. I mean...are you so narrowly focused that all you read and hear in your head???
No..really. Is reading that difficult for you?
Gray has never been a career 13th man. He starts often and plays long...at least on former teams.
HBut I see by your picture you are a drunken lover of certain types of players.
I am done with you.

@KingsAllDay you missed the point entirely. you just turned it into something I never suggested or implied.
is it that hard for you to stay within the bounds of a discussion...or do you just blabber.
and still gray sits.
game after game after game.
and we wonder why the team is selfish and there is no defense...while a 7 foot defender just...sits.
r. evens was supposedly the new savior...and the pundits praised him and all his glory.
Nothin. he ain't nuthin more than a hustler without clothes.
And while cousins was hurt...all we ever read was the kings were o fer with him sitting.
well...we are likely 1 for every 5 with him...
wonder what the win loss is with gray sitting since gray has been with the team.
stupid defense and dumber offense. selfish team...one of the most selfish teams I ever watched.
and cousins thinking he is now an outside option must slay the opposition.
ya...so I really don't care about any of the allstar crap from Kings fans about Cousins. To me he is a ranting, cry baby, anti teammate. He shuffles down the court pouting after every frigging play worse than most I have seen.
He screams at everybody but at himself.
Watching replays...he is lucky he doesn't foul out after half a game. He gets away with hitting on everybody...he even shoulder butts players just to set a tone.
All Star my ass. What a bullying pud.

@al asifyouknow @ppellico
ya, see...new here so i don't know the history. but he can grow up. but not when there are enablers around him. others need to look at him and say shut the frigging up. it ain;t your team...we are teammates.
personally...i am hateful of bullies. being an old wrestler...never cared much for them and kind of enjoy getting at them.
10 months, 2 weeks ago on Road Reaction Postgame Show: Washington Wizards 93, Sacramento Kings 84
look...he might even be a good teammate right now let alone an allstar! teams need leaders...not bullies.
i think i read a poster in the last feature story or write up about him being the best center in the nba right now!
that is madness...not sure he is even in the top 5.
and top players make others around them be better players...not in fear of being lambasted in front of a crowd.
kid needs to grow up.
and...I thought Aaron Gray played outstanding. Infact he shut Gortat down. It was amazing to see that line up come out and bring the team to within , what...8 points? Something like that.
Oh...and not having been a King fan growing up in Chi Town and spenig a fortune on Bulls games and living in southern Florida nwadays after my stroke...I am amazed at what counts as stardom in the west.
I see DC getting praise constantly...even when I think his defense sucks. He pouts. He rants. He bullies.
Did this guy get through life this far by pushing folks around?
I mean, hell... he rants and cusses openly at his own players!
He has to grow up...right now he is a punk.
i undrstand the trade and i understand the need to gel. but perhaps you are implying they were winning before the trade.
if not...then the situation is deeper than just Cuz and other career years.
and I might be alone...but Cuz has issues. unlike Gray...Gray teams teams up. I can show you features about Gray's ability to make others around him better. in one TV report...Acy didn't answer many direct questions...only kept praising Gray for being at the gym early and late JUST to work with him and teach him the NBA. he stated his growth was all thanks to GRay. And he took Gray's floor time.
He studies films more than the coach and spends time with teammates getting ready for situations he finds in the films.
Now, sir...can you say CUZ has this same personalilty?
There is a reason team players like this kid....

look..don't put words in my mouth. I never said anybody is holding Gray back. And I could not care less if he is with the Kings next year or not.
I like him and folow him. And he will find a place to play cause unlike you...coaches do need his work.
Meanwhile, in reality...the Kings suck and their record shows it. Career years or not...it is winning that counts.
Coach can play anybody he wants for as long as he wants...but if he is losing...that, sir, is reality.
see...this is why you collect nasty replies. you say such stupid generality crap. You more than likely know little about Gray. And there are few, if any, bgi men with his defensive skills and ability to get his players open are available for 1.6 million.
If he had played last night your inside would have been better protected. As it was it was decimated...and he wasn't even used.
So your decision, like the coach, stands proven wrong.
If you had to put your money where you mouth is...you would cower hidden in the shaddows so nobody would find you.
so..why would you not play your wide bodied 7 footer when your inside is being crushed? This drives me nuts.
@tpistoia I agree...
and it even gets more spread out than what you say.
In fact the rotations get pretty silly at times.
But I also beg to point out we are way to damn fast to condemn bench and role players when they are pushed into more times and crisis play.
After all...they did NOT get the practice times with other sstarters nor do they really have any plays designed for them.
So...pushem into these positions and then demandeing they plays as if they were always getting the times is being unrealistic and just a dumb fan.
These guys deserve thier times to get melded.

@Jim Les for 3 any team...any team...would hurt for missing star players.
When both were down...that was even worse. But they are the teams top and aid as such. Bench players should do their best, but asking them to be the stars is silly. If they could...why shouldnlt they be the stars and starters all the time?
Hope we get a full squad soon.
well...not so fast.
IT is pretty good but in reality...he is not an NBA player. All love aside..he is rediculously small. for every shot he makes...he gives away to many pooprtunities you cannot afford in this game. He has to be bigger...or so damn good at passing and shooting his limits on defense wouldn't hurt.
Any good PG has sklls AND some size.
Look...he gets caught in rotations and ends up on to tall of players. There is a reason the announcers keep bring up The Mouse In The House junk so often.
I thought his rediculouse dribbling was out of hand last night. I saw him dribble into , under and back out several times last night. He simply cannot control the ball that long.
Everybody will just quit moving without the ball if they don't get rewarded for their work.
@tocan it aint the reason.
The lack of defense kills this team.
Last night Gray left the game with a fantastic lead and was doing a great job of holding the defense inside. He has had many games recently and we just sucked on D.
Ya...his Offense is not there...but he never was that and never gets plays called his way. Anything he gets is last minute desperation. But he holds the inside.
But that IT!!! The most rediculously funny scenes in the NBA is watching this little person play Defense!! Are you kidding me? Is this a clown show? Watching him end up in rotations and his face is in the groin of the offensive shooter is stunning.
You couldn't write this into a comedy for Hollywood!
Get risd of the midgetn and get a real sized NBA floor leader.

@layituplikeaman @Cowbb have no stakte in this discussion...and am actually learning from the points...but what about all the stats needed for the position? For example, assist.
What about at defense? Seems to me he is a bit small and would strike fear in nobody on defense.
Is James considered a PG or SP...or even a PF? Guys like him as well as Magic are very large, or tall...for the position..a strength in the NBA.
10 months, 3 weeks ago on CK Press Box Report: Memphis Grizzlies 99, Sacramento Kings 89
@layituplikeaman I guess this is where I get confused...PG vs SG. I always thought the PG was the floor leader. Efficient when he does shoot...but mainly a set up floor leader.
I remember watching Gray at both NO with CP3 and then at Totronto with then Jose. Both seemed extremely good at setting up others...pick n rolls, whatever. But when given the oppportunity due to time clock running out...they took the shots and had to make them.
But shouldn't your Shooting guard be THE threat for scoring?
@SacKings seems that most that make it to the NBA are talented. So you are right...its the next step that counts.
But team ball means unselfish ball...not really a good sell in the NBA...where most fans demand and talk only of Offensive stats.
You can play solid D all night...but if your O numbers don't show...you get bashed the next day.
Just read some live threads and you can see only hate given for Gray...the kid that only looks to make others around hi get theirs.
well...Randolph did seem to get away with an amazing amount of shoulder drives into T's body. I mean...when did this become a legal move in the NBA!?
I would think this allowed for ZR to wear on him as the evening played...and to me, it seems just an unfair position.
I read again on other blogs about Aaron being yet a liability. Are they kidding me!? With a line like that and as you state...he holds players to below average nights. This for 1.6 pper year salary.
Show me another as good a deal for a team and it will me made up.
Defense...? wasn't this easy score, NBS AllStar scoring always a western conf style? Used to be we out east loved watching the west play O and no D. Where is the chatter...the talking on D? I only see Gray pointing to spots and directing players into positions. Where is the team D talk!?
agree. there were times last night I wanted to scream out about the defense! There drives to the basket that made me feel nobody was there at all to defend. It was like the parting of the Red Sea! Or maybe like an all star game...just let everybody get their baskets!
By the 4th qtr it was what...90 to 95 or something!
No defense at all.

veeeerrry nice to see some real understanding of basketball. most sites see Aaron Gray as a liability...not what he truly is: a very big man that can set unbelievable screens, block out other top bis from controlling the middle and makes others around him succeed.
All at a rediculous low price of 1.6 million per year. Ain't no way you can get a better bargain.
No...all you read is how he doesn'r score. Really? Is that all the west coast fans understand about the game???
