Care to elaborate a bit? I am not up to date on all the slangs


The kings stadium here in sacramento lights a purple beam into the sky when they win, and they all chant that. Became pretty viral/ a meme especially on sites like reddit etc.

Thank you

I'm not knocking him, I'm pointing out the silliness of the call. He ran to catch up to the guy and caught up easily and was almost side to side with him by the time he fouled him. I think the spirit of the rule wasn't really broken here, just the letter, and I think the spirit is more important

I don’t know who is worse, Pelinka, Jeanie, or that female cop that got fired in TN.

I like the idea of having Nunn and Christie out there together with Lebron out there. Why not space the floor even more? Plus Christie is a superior defender and Nunn can create a little bit.

He just made the contact too early, should’ve waited until he caught up

But man how are you that (bleep) dumb that you give up a clear path foul? Of all the damn things to give up. How in the hell do you have the entire team behind Kings players?

I'd rather lose by 60 than lose like this.

Ugh.

I fail to see how this game is on Russ when TB was getting murdered and we gave up one rebound after another.
To answer you question, lebron was the furthest back when the shot went up, he should’ve covered homles, but he went to foul Fox. There is no blame here as this is a broken play


I'd say this game is on Russ for not closing the lane on Barnes down the stretch when he wasn't guarding anybody. Beverly did a good job forcing Barnes towards a double where all Brodie had to do was close the lane and either force Barnes to shoot a contested midrange or pass it out. He didn't close the lane instead looked lost out there because he was looking around as Barnes turned towards him too late to react. Thats piss poor awareness from Westbrook a veteran who's been in the league over a decade.

Maybe putting it all on Russ is too much. But he gets a huge chunk of it imo.

That’s the help Pelinka promised Lebron.

Zero free agents are choosing this stupid ass front office.

We are in for a decade of mediocrity.

I don't think anyone can do that, that is like next level stuff to run and get ahead in that situation. I think most players instinct is to just grab the guy closest, I don't fault him for that.

No reason why Russ should’ve been in the game in the last minute.

Ham is a moron

Russ is 6’2-3’, a double from him hardly works against a 6’7 Barnes, He didn’t do a good job there, but the mess started when lebron and Bev switched way too easy on the brush screen
You don’t think JTA was dumb to foul Fox on a fadeaway on a sprain ankle?

None of that was Christie’s fault. It was Nunn who turned away from the court completely to complain to the ref after he hit a tough three who killed us. The man next to him broke free and got the inbound pass in open space which set up the rest. If he had any game awareness he would have locked in after hitting that three, even if he might have been fouled, to try to secure a win instead of whining about a foul he wasn’t going to get.

Can’t u imagine if Lebron had some real help?
Bojan, Hield, Turner, Kuzma, anyone.

Westbrook plays so out of control sometimes. Drives me nuts.
Guys can’t shoot for crap on this team.

Schroder and Bryant have reverted back to mediocrity.

Right...It's better to just give Barnes the open lane and let him score the and1. With Russ being 6'2 and all it's a foregone conclusion that the second coming of MJ Harrison Barnes is just swishing that.

But yeah defense overall was piss poor.

Yeah I’ll take my chances of Barnes hitting a baseline fadeaway over two guys than Russ screwing up the double and allowing him to split and get an and 1.

End of 3rd russ enters the game with 5:38 left.

Gets beat back door. Makes 1-4 free throws.

Has a chance to get it to 6 to end the 3rd and instead shoots a stupid pull up 3.

Dude is horrible.

Team has morale. It'd be one thing if they just gave up. They've got heart and the morale is high. We just cant shoot. And Russ is too much of a wildcard to inject any kind of stability.

But we take he good with bad.

At least Bron finally showed his frustration on Westbrick in the game. I think that's the first time I've seen him done that on Brick.
