I noticed every time a King player fell to the floor, nobody at all came and helped the other person up. It's just little stuff like that, that shows positive re-enforcement and shows you have people backing you up and are an actual team. This was happening I'm pretty sure even when the game was close. Raptors
do this all the time.
Quincy and Gray were the only ones doing that kind of stuff. Learned good values.
My point being that team will never come together because their most talented players are douchebags.
Isaiah Thomas deserves better. Its amazing that none of the Kings front office saw this coming. Why the hell did they get rid of a high priced SF who can actually do multiple things on the floor in Evans to get a worse, higher paid, less team oriented version in Gay?
If they were smart, they would have built around Thomas and Cousins by bringing in hard working veteran players who know how to win. Its not inconceivable to think that if they were actually able to sign Iggy in the off season, and made a move for a starting PF(Millsap?), they'd be one of the better teams in the West. But in typical Kings fashion, they fucked it up, again.
Hopefully Mightymouse 2.0 comes back to Toronto this off season.
