**** that noise, this team plays well at home and like dog **** on the road. If they can get some more consistency, they'll make some noise next year. Cousins is a beast, can't think of many people in the league that can really man him up. They just need to develop chemistry on defense and work on the half court offense. Things were going so smoothly when the ball was moving through Cousins.

Man, I just can't help but think about how much this team would improve if they got a high-impact, low-usage wing in the draft. MKG is just what the doctor ordered for this team.

At this point, though, it's doubtful the Kings get a shot at him. That's assuming he actually declares for the draft.

They're 7th lowest right now, depending on how percentages play out at the end of the year. I'm hoping the past four years of getting ****** by the lottery has built enough karma to get us in the top three this year.

I'd expect the Nets to pass you, they have something like 7 of 11 at home

It's a myth that a hook is a foul UNLESS you use your hand. you can use your arm and shoulder to get in front of the defender though.

This is the year the Wolves are winning the lottery. After getting ****** with good odds forever, we are gonna win it with like a 1.5% chance. At least #3 so we can grab Beal.

MKG would give us the SF we really need, and likely sending Evans/Thomas to the bench as the 6th man. If we can get in the top 3/4 we have a good chance at landing Davs/Robinson/MKG, and hopefully a team take a player like Beal early.

he was actually really good with the nets and we traded him to houston for virtually nothing, which pissed me off, and then they just cut him.

also, nets played pretty well last night to come back and make it a game against the lakers. if only Johan Petro didn't go 0-8. dammit Johan

we also suck so much dick at home it's ridiculous. we're the anti-kings. we're not terrible on the road, but we have like only 4 wins at home.

But gerald wallace rules. If he and D-Will stay, with Bropez coming back, we'd be a playoff team next year. Which, in the east, isn't saying much. but it'd be cool to see.

We have won 16 in a row at home (which I wouldn't be shocked if that ends tonight), but no one can get over the fact we can't win on the road in completely meaningless regular season games.

The offense runs through Jordan Crawford now. Its like we dont have a PG that is the #1 overall pick or something.

I'm praying Love leaves the Wolves after two more years. He is too good to be stuck in this **** hole of a franchise. We will do nothing this offseason and go 38-44 next year.

So I don't know if anyone around the rest of the US is following the Maloof drama, but **** is about to go down this week.

To recap:
1. Vote was made to hear proposals at the city council meeting to raise funds for arena. The vote was actually a "no" vote, but the issue was whether or not to put the vote on a public ballot. A "yes" would have killed it because no one can get 30% of people to agree on anything in California, much less a majority
2. TNT crew (including Chris Webber) botches the story the following night, saying the "no" vote killed the Kings in Sacramento
3. All-Star weekend, the Kings, Sacramento, AEG and NBA jointly agree to a term sheet keeping the Kings in Sacramento. Now the city must come up with a quarter of a billion dollars in the next 3 weeks. Kevin Johnson and Joe/Gavin Maloof are seen crying and smiling as they leave. George is seen sulking in the background with a frown.
4. Sacramento city council meeting is held weeks later to raise funds via the sale of publicly held parking structures. Vote passes 7-2. The Kings will move to downtown Sacramento as a part of a downtown renaissance and transit hub. KJ, Gavin and Joe Maloof continue to sing praises of the ability of the two parties to make something work in Sacramento. George continues to sulk in the background.
5. Fast forward to last week--$3.25 million in predevelopment costs are due to begin the work for the new arena. Maloofs fail to pay it. David Stern covers his frat boy owners by advancing $200k from the NBA fund. Maloofs must pay the money back and will have to pick up the rest of the costs in two weeks.
6. George Maloof comes from sulking in the background to the foreground to say in no business venture he has ever been part of has the "tenant" ever paid the predevelopment costs. The Kings would be a tenant in this new arena while the city of Sacramento will own the arena. Essentially, George says "Suck it Sacramento". Keep in mind the city is on tap for $250M while the Maloofs are putting up $60M for the arena. Also of note, the term sheet agreed to less than a month (by George and the other Maloofs) prior also clearly states the Maloofs will pay the $3.25M in predev costs.
7. Mayor Kevin Johnson says "I don't like being dicked around. We had a deal" (or something like that) while Stern tries to be diplomatic while also scolding the Maloofs.

That's where we are today. We are heading into the Board of Governors meeting for the NBA owners. This was supposed to be a celebration of a city fighting to keep its team and the small market retaining the team with eyes set on a larger market.

And now we have this comment from Stern "I'm hopeful because the city of Sacramento has between last meeting and this, has been responsible for responding on a sponsorship basis, on a ticket basis and on allocating $250 million or so for a new arena. In basically a week — what's today? Wednesday — in a week, our owners will be coming in for meetings next Thursday and next Friday, and we'll be having the Maloofs in to talk with some group of them and we'll see where it's going."

This Board of Governors meeting may turn into a "pony up or GTFO" ultimatum toward the Maloofs. If KJ doesn't like to be dicked around, David Stern likes to be dicked around even less. There was a term sheet that was agreed upon and the Maloofs (George specifically) are backing out. The city of Sacramento has done everything asked of them and more. They have gone the extra mile in making HUGE concessions to the Maloof family. And George Maloof is trying to leverage the situation even more.

I wouldn't be surprised if the Maloofs are forced out McCourt-style. This could get ugly real soon.
