Ah the Kings and dysfunction.  Can't have one without the other.

https://basketball.realgm.com/wiretap/251673/Kings-Front-Office-Frustrated-By-How-Dave-Joerger-Has-Handled-Young-Players

So the Kings look like a respectable team for the first time in years and they may remove the coach because he isn't playing the young guys enough, yet it is successful.  I totally get removing a coach that isn't playing young guys and isn't winning (like Lue), but Joerger is actually winning.  It just doesn't make any sense, but I guess that is the perfect tag line for the Kings.

I would normally assume this is untrue, but you never know with Vivek.  That would be great if they change coaches for a youth movement.  They're winning too much right now.  Hopefully, a new coach would implement Vivek's 4 man defense.

Right on the heels of this Ringer breakdown:

https://www.theringer.com/nba/2018/11/6/18066284/sacramento-kings-start-marvin-bagley

I mean, Joerger's system has the Kings in a good place, and people in Sac are more excited about the Kings than since the early 2000s, probably.

And Bagley's playing good ball, not great, and getting 22 mpg. Why all the dissatisfaction? It's not like he's tearing it up but only getting garbage time.

Typical Kings nonsense. They will never have any real success until Vivek goes away. I find it hard to believe Vlade is the one who's unhappy, if only because Vlade has never been unhappy about anything in his life.

Not sure what young guys the owners want playing more. Giles?Labissiere? Frank Mason? Yogi Farrell?

They are already play WCS, Fox, Hield, Jackson and Bagley and are winning.

Itís Sacramento, nick. Youíre applying logic to a raging dumpster fire full of toxic waste. They ran their last good coach (Mike Malone) out of town, too. Theyíve got the worst front office in sports. I fully expect them to sabotage their team.

This is why I still expect this Kings pick to be great. No, they probably won't finish bottom-3 in the league (though that may be a bit of a good thing since if it's #1, it actually goes PHI), but still could be a great pick in the Top-5 or 6. Zion is the star (he'll go #1 probably to CLE) but I see a lot of other potential freakish athletes (even other unicorns of sorts) that could emerge out of this Draft.

Right now I think SAC is the 11 seed in the West but are just a few games out of being 2nd to last in the West and like 6th/7th worst in the league.

If this iteration of the team (Fox, Hield, Cauley-Stein, Bagley) never materializes into a playoff team can we finally just move them to Seattle and bring back the Sonics?

Just to keep everyone updated, were the draft to occur today, Boston's collection of picks would be:

#11, Sacramento (three way tie with San Antonio and Utah)
#19, Boston's own (tie with New Orleans)
#24, Memphis
#25, Clippers (three way tie with Oklahoma and Portland)

The flatter draft lottery is working in our favor here. #1 only has 2x the chance vs #8 at getting a top-4 pick and there is barely any difference in the bottom 5:

Remember that if it ends up #1 it stays with the Sixers.  So if the Kings finish in the bottom 3, we'd have a 38.1% chance of getting #2 through #4.  If the Kings finish 8th worst, we'd only have 18.2% chance of it finishing #2 through #4.

I would be content ending up in the 6 to 8 range.  If Danny wanted to move up to say the top 3 or 4 Danny just might have the assets to pull it off.   It looks like so far itís going to be really hard to break into that bottom 5.  Iím hoping the Grizzlies come back to earth somewhere in the lottery as another good asset to use.

Kings win again tonight over the Thunder 117-113. Itís honestly getting really frustrating watching these guys win games that they have no business winning. Just leave it to the Thunder to win 5 games without Russell Westbrook and then lose to the Kings when he comes back and plays. To be fair the Kings deserve a lot of credit for playing tough basketball each and every night it seems like every time it looks like they are going to go on a losing streak they get a much needed win. Canít believe that after years of dysfunction they finally put it together when we get there pick. Iím still hoping the pick ends up in the Top 10 since I only see about 10 or so elite prospects but we shall see because these guys are better than I thought.

Moranis called it. This is as bad as following the Lakers for the first half of last year, or worse.
Give us this pick, Almighty Red
And forgive us our tanking
As we forgive those who tanked against us
And lead us not into the lottery
But deliver us from losing
