Kings Lose Again – This Time To D-League Players

You know, I thought the Kings would be better than they are in the Summer League, even with a new system. But, as evidenced through the first three games, they weren’t.

But once I saw we’d be playing a collection of D-League talent on the schedule, I figured we’d get at least one win this year in the Vegas Summer League. Yea. Whoops.

I’m not sure a win is even possible right now (Yes, I know, it’s not “important” but I enjoy being frustrated). But, at the very least, we have each other – right? Though, I’m not really sure what that does for us in the end. Part of me figures, even with our low payroll, we’d have some guys that are good at basketball. Also, I figure if they’re trying to win a game, they might do so at some time. However, that appears not to be the case.

So, I’ve decided to root against the Kings now. Actually, that’s masochistic. I’m changing my plans. What my new plan will be, is to watch them until they get a lead. I will then turn off the game, and pretend they won. That’s a good goal!

Below I’ve included a lovely poll for our final game on:

Will The Kings Lead At Any Point Versus The Knicks?

On the plus side, Jason Thompson finally snapped out of his slump, dumping in 31 points and 10 rebounds and Jon Brockman continued to play the bruiser role, sending All-Star D-Leaguers to their knees quicker than a porn shoot in Chatsworth.

The Kings will close out the Summer League on Friday evening versus the Knicks, and attempt to avoid a winless campaign.

Until then, go Kings! Or, at the least, get a lead. Thanks!

    Those D-Leaguers are tough!

    To be honest, these guys SHOULD be beating most summer league teams.

    D-League Select team is probably better than most summer league teams… they’ll probably go undefeated. The Kings are under their 4th new coach in 4 years and aren’t playing with most of the players they will be during the season. I could care less if we went undefeated or didn’t win a game. I just want to see how our players play and if any undrafted guy steps up (and Marcus Landry has. Definitely earned himself a camp invite)
