Man Gay and Cousins will be a horrible combination. I was watching the end of that game, and they just have horrible personalities. They just have losing mentalities, even despite Cousins being a beast. They kept shaking their heads, giving their teammates stink-eyes, pouting, complaining, not giving high-fives or helping teammates up. 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.

Absolutely, and this has been the case for many years now. I knew the minute Gay got traded that it was a bad fit for them, for any team.

Not that reliable but if he's indeed out for a month, the pressure on NYK and Dolan will be on even moreso.

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.

Kings coach was so frustrated after the loss, he is already sick of Rudy Gay.

Wow the worst Christmas NBA games ever.

No Rose, Deng, Lopez, Melo, or Kobe.

The matchups had great potential too. Atleast GSW and LAC will be really good.

After a half a quarter talking about how the Knicks are still in good shape to take the #1 spot away from the Raptors...

... by the way, {chuckle, chuckle, chuckle} Knicks are down by 20.
