Baldwin Looks like if Klay Thompson and Livingston made a baby.
Could be a real steal…can really shoot.
It's completely predictable.James Jones not bringing in undrafted free agents after the draft concluded is disappointing. The same with not buying a draft pick.
Better believe the Heat and a number of teams are.
Never seen it spelled out about how the Kings are so often 1 pick off.
2011 Pick Jimmer Fredette at 10, Klay Thompson is #11
2012 Thomas Robinson picked at 5 Damian Lillard picked 6th
2018 Marvin Bagley picked 2nd, Luka Doncic picked 3rd.
History says Jaden Ivey will be great and Keegan Murray will not.
I was big on Murray... poor kid. Now he is stuck being coached by Mike Brown.
Exactly. People need to stop pretending that even though we improved manifestly over the last couple years, that JJ is some kind of Yoda of basketball wisdom or something and every decision he makes is somehow going to be ultimately proven to be brilliant. History has shown that he has made probably as many or more questionable decisions as good. I don't believe all of the bad ones are strictly on him - many are more likely on the awful owner. But some have definitely been on JJ, and some of the good ones have been more good fortune and happenstance.I think it's more about being cheap or closed minded.
he's a good scorer maybe Brown will teach him to play defense.
He was a pretty good defender too, he did something of everything. I really liked him.
I don't think Brown will teach him much of anything. Brown is a lousy coach who's entire reputation stems from coaching LeBron in a watered down East a over decade ago.
Brown is lucky the Kings had already hired him before Kerr got sick in the playoffs and Brown got to remind everyone how bad he is at the job, especially in the playoffs.
Brown is a defensive coach he's the one that was responsible for coaching the Warriors on defense. I'm not immediately finding it but Brown was something like 18-1 in the playoffs as the Warriors coach. The one loss was that massive blowout to the Grizzlies.
Not saying he's a great coach but I don't think he's a bad one either. But Sacramento is a terrible job so it's quite likely he'll get fired just like all the other coaches did
Agreed. I am just saying I don't think he's as bad as people think.
But I fully expect him to be fired before his contract is up, the Kings are just a terrible job.
That is true. Their owner is absolutely awful.
As lousy as Sarver is, his fault is mostly being cheap. Ranadive is some combination of crazy and stupid and he is extremely meddlesome.
