Looking back over the first third of the season

The Kings are 8-18 which if projected out to 82 games is a 25 win season. Not what most hoped for but what a lot expected, I would assume. On the bright side, the Kings improved their talent...

Toronto offers Nash 3yr deal worth $36M

11

If Nash decides to accept and return to Canada to finish his career, could the amnesty of Calderon be far behind. Although it wouldn't be the top options for most fans, (bidding on Calderon, resigning JT and TWill) may be one of the few options that are capable considering the Kings limited cap space. Short of amnestying Salmons which most would agree isn't likely considering the Maloof's money situation. Signing JT, TWill and Calderon would address the Kings biggest needs without exceeding the cap.

Scott Howard Cooper points finger at KJ

71

Cooper says KJ and Lahane went too far in chastising the Maloofs. And, may have forced them out of any deal. He thinks they may be running them out of town. For may part, that may not be a bad idea. There are 13 teams that made less money in ticket sales than the Kings. With the Kings gone, we might have 13 new partners willing to except the ESC deal.

Some Bulletin Board material from Dave at Blazer's Edge

Good read from the Kings/Blazers game preview In short, you have DeMarcus Cousins, an off-and-on Tyreke Evans, and a bunch of guys you're saying prayers for every time they loft the ball. That's coupled with the defense we mentioned earlier. Ugh. In order to prosper the Kings need to fast break or get it to Cousins when he's hot. Keep their center from going bananas and their guards from running the floor on you and you're golden. The only asterisk is that you also have to keep them from rebounding their misses. They're an excellent offensive rebounding team. But really, this is basic defense. Don't let them run, guard the middle in the halfcourt, rebound the ball. They don't pass effectively so concentrate on the guy with the ball and watch their team run the clock down just to get a low percentage shot.
