5-5 over their last 10. Best record of any of the teams at the bottom of the standings. Kings are probably the only team in the bottom 14 who aren't tanking at the moment. However, the Kings need to stay in the bottom 12 to help ensure they keep their pick.

@SacKingsI agree with your second paragraph. IT is obviously wearing down in the 4th quarter of games and his shooting is suffering. Playing a guy who is just coming off the flu 42 minutes is NOT good coaching.

@Black_Who@CowbbI think they Kings would trade Thorton for a sack of rocks in a heartbeat at this point. The problem is no one is going to be willing to take on his bloated salary that still has another year left on it after this one.

@KingznutOne of the main reasons Jimmer has been playing so well lately is how smart Coach Malone has been about his minutes. Jimmer is typically going up against backup PG's and SG's. This masks his defensive liabilities and makes it easier for him to handle the ball and get his own shot. Jimmer really struggles against the super quick PG's and Malone is careful not to put him out there too long against those type of guys.
I really like what Jimmer has been providing lately as the backup PG/Combo guard, but IT is clearly the better overall PG right now. I think Jimmer should continue to get 15-20 minutes a game and allowed to ride it out with more minutes when he gets really hot, isn't turning the ball over and is able to play serviceable defense.

3 months, 3 weeks ago on So you want to coach the Sacramento Kings?
@ChrisDoster @KrishnanCoughran @TABDOG You have basically exposed yourself with that last comment. Yeah, those role players won all those championships. Didn't have anything to do with the guys names David Robinson, Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili. Not too mention every player you mentioned is known for defense, something Jimmer greatly lacks.
Demarcus Cousin is FAR from elite at this point in his career. Grep Popovich would himself would tell you he couldn't win with the Kings roster.
Not exactly what you mean by the last comment? My photo is attached to the name. Feel free to Google and figure out if I live with my Mom you tool! Not hiding, so feel free to come find me to talk about it at the next Kings game tough guy.
@KDsmooth What? To day Jimmer is a better defender than IT is not supported by any statistical evidence and completely fails the eye ball test!
3 months, 3 weeks ago on Sunday Musings: The Isaiah Thomas conundrum
Thank you for this article. If Isaiah was taller our fan base would be up in arms over the fact he isn't starting. I can't for the life of me figure out why the Kings would want their 2nd best player coming off the bench? Championships teams like the Spurs may have that luxury, but not the Kings. Could you imagine if Jimmer was putting up the numbers of IT and not starting? Kings' fans would be going bezerk!
The Kings have come out flat too often and Vasquez would be better off defending backup PG's rather than starters. I would love to see those two flip flop roles. Isiah needs to get 35 minutes a game. Too often because he is coming in off the bench his minutes are in the 20's.
I was a big proponent of Jimmer coming out of college, but I will admit to being very down on him over the last couple years. His ball handling was not up to NBA PG standards and his defense was atrocious. However, with the new staff playing him as a combo guard and helping cover his deficiencies on defense with a more team oriented concept, I'm really intrigued to see what Jimmer can do. If he can get even close to Thorton's production, than the best move would be to trade Thorton and his large contract if possible.

No real reason as fans to be offended. This has everything to do with the previous ownership/management regime and nothing to do with the fans. With Ranadive and company in place, the Kings organization won't be last on this list ever again.

@Cowbb I think we will see a lot of moves prior to the trading deadline.

I hadn't really thought about P-Pat at the SF position much. I guess that is an intriguing proposition, but he would probably have a real hard time guarding against quickness at SF.

Dang, I wish the Kings had found a way to sign Anderson as a FA last year. We got Maloofed on that one.

Man, the more I learn about Vasquez the more I love this move!! He is the exact type of "player" and "personality" the Kings have been sorely lacking the last five years.
7 months, 1 week ago on Everybody loves Greivis Vasquez
I think both guys will get plenty of playing time. I even think the two would play well together with Isiah playing the scoring guard role and Vasquez playing PG on O and defending the SG position. IT is ideally suited to provide a scoring punch off the bench, but so is Thorton and Jimmer. I think one of the three will eventually get traded.
7 months, 1 week ago on Poll: Who wins the Sacramento Kings’ starting point guard battle?
@asharma6 No way. The difference is Mbah Moute knows his role as a defender and rebounder. He won't try to be a scorer like Johnson did. Johnson never accepted his offensive limitations.
7 months, 2 weeks ago on Poll: Grading the Sacramento Kings offseason to this point
Funny. I have always thought Tyreke Evans was just a glorified John Salmons. The real problem with Salmons is he is fading fast as he gets older. Defense not nearly what it used to be and he has clearly lost a step. Thus, John Salmons four years ago would work at SF, but not this version of Salmons. His PER last year was one of the worst in the league.

John Salmons as the best option is an oxymoron.
8 months ago on Is John Salmons still the Sacramento Kings best option at small forward?
surprised the voting is so close since almost everyone in the local
media is against signing Monta. I voted yes, but only under the
assumption Thorton, Jimmer and Salmons would no longer be on the
8 months ago on Poll: Is Monta Ellis the right fit for the Sacramento Kings?
completely understand the stance of not wanting to overpay for Tyreke
and drawing that line in the sand. I thought D'Alassandro did well to
get Vazquez in return. However, I do feel the Kings reached and overpaid
for Landry. So, I'm a bit confused on the overall fiscal philosophy
now. - See more at:
