The Slow, miserable death of my fandom.

This season is by far the worst season I have ever experienced. I feel like my fandom is dying a slow, miserable, cancerous death. I almost wish the team would have just left to Anaheim. Just...

Sources: Wolves, Rockets talk Flynn deal

1

This bothers me because I've wanted Flynn since the 09 draft but could this mean the Rockets have a deal involving Aaron Brooks or Kyle Lowry? Possibly with the Kings?

Hawks Need To Trade Marvin Williams

17

I know, I know "it's Hoopsworld" but is this a guy who could be our starting small forward for years to come? I'm not advocating aquiring him because I don't know much about him. All I know is he was the #2 pick in the draft but has been pretty underwhelming as a #2 pick(picked over D-Will & CP3). Is it possible he is overshadowed in ATL? Or just doesn't have a big role on that team? Could he blossom somewhere else like Michael Beasely?

A trade too good to be ignored in a week old assinine trade thread

Should the Kings give him a look? I prefer a veteran but that most likely won't happen until after the CBA so why not?

Doug Collins praises Syracuse's Wesley Johnson

12

New 76ers coach Doug Collins got what he wanted. Collins said he likes when NBA prospects produce pre-draft workouts that make a team reconsider its draft plans. Syracuse forward Wesley Johnson did just that Saturday at the Sixers' pre-draft workout at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine. "You like someone and you want someone [else] to come in and make you think. That's what you love to do as a coach," said Collins, whose squad holds the No. 2 overall pick in Thursday's NBA draft. "Watching Wesley work out was like, 'Wow, that was impressive,' " Collins added. "This young kid, he's got it: Charismatic, he can play, respectful, he's older. I mean, impressive

Though comfortable, teams with cash could lure Allen away from Boston "Dare I say, TA might have priced himself out of Boston. The Celtics are not going to have a lot of cap wiggle room, and if you're one of these cash-gushing teams that gets spurned in the big-name bonanza, why wouldn't you spend $3-4 million to put a defensive stopper on your bench (or, heck, as your starting guard in some cases).

Not Kings or draft related but I was listening to Jim Gray on sports 1140 & I had to see this again. You should too & if you haven't seen it trust me it's hilarious. James Toney slaps the mic out of Jim Gray's hands for asking him if they can have a decent conversation.

Ron Artest raps on Lopez tonight. So funny. I can't wait for his reality show. Ron is great but F@#k George Lopez for saying Artest indian name is "Happy not to be in Sacramento" Pains me to say that because I really like Lopez. That was just the D-bag Laker fan coming out.

So Cousins actually can keep his cool? Imagine that. I know we most likely won't be picking 1-3 anyway but if we happened to get lucky this is the guy you take.

Collison’s play in Paul’s absence could land him on the All-Rookie team, but has also led to speculation he could be traded before next season. Teams looking for a quality starting point guard could be calling the Hornets about Collison. The Hornets are expected to be cautious until they are certain about Paul’s health, but one NBA source said it wouldn’t be a surprise to see the team try to package Collison with Peja Stojakovic’s(notes) expiring contract next season in a possible trade.

They extended their winning streak to nine games against Minnesota on Wednesday night, albeit barely. The 112-109 victory came without point guard Jason Kidd, who was rested by coach Rick Carlisle to keep the 36-year-old fresh for the playoff run.

Landry was not the only one blindsided by the move. Several team sources around the league openly questioned Sacramento's thinking, saying they were unaware of Kevin Martin's availability or their teams would have offered far more compensation for Martin, including taking on some unfavorable contracts or giving up draft picks. When you consider what Sacramento got back in exchange for Martin, the Kings really did not make a good deal unless Landry becomes an All-Star playing with Tyreke Evans Read more: http://www.hoopsworld.com/Story.asp?story_id=15386#ixzz0gIHN3LIh

Some cool tweets about the Rookie/Soph game

Brandon Jennings: "Blair 22pts 23 reb. I mean I'm just sayin" You might as well just come out & say you are jealous of Tyreke.

Evans is No. 6 (Note from TZ: I removed the list. It's Insider, and I respect ESPN's right to put items behind paywalls.)

Chad Fords updated 10 players likely to be traded

62

I apologize for linking an insider article but there are some interesting names including Kevin Martin. IMO the most ignorant statement "While Martin is still playing himself back in shape, the results are fairly lopsided right now. The Kings are just 1-8 when Evans & Martin have started in the backcourt together, but they were 14-18 when Martin was out of the line-up" This is nothing suprising coming from espn. The reason for this fanshot was mainly to list the other names so here they are: Amare Stoudemire, Andre Iguodala, Rudy Gay, Hasheem Thabeet, Nate Robinson, Dj Augustin, Andres Nocioni, Vince Carter, Shane Battier. A few suprises there a few that can help the Kings. If you need more info just let me know.

Kings move up 2 spots in Marc Steins power rankings from 17 to 15

This was before the Denver game. Hopefully we can move up even more by next week. I know the Kings have gotten some pretty good recognition these past few weeks but I personally can't get enough.(except the d-bag stories about how Tyreke is NAPG or how Kevin is a ballhog & can't play with Tyreke ugh)

Why not just go "full rebuild"

With all this talk about about Tyreke Evans being a beast, but not the playmaker we need, why not just go "full rebuild"? Here's what i propose.
