    Kings fire Mike Malone....

    No link sorry

    I don't get it though

    Dude seemed like a good young coach and they had a good start

    If cousins wasn't hurt they would have a better record as well

    Really?? That is strange. Guy had command of the players. Without cousins of course they struggle. And who would ever believe Rudy gay could carry any team. Bad choice to fire if real

    Exactly

    Watch they get Shaq to coach

    Bad move though imo

    Must have been something going on internally

    Agree. He's got team killer Rudy Gay, crazy prison inmate Demarcus Cousins, and a bunch of bums, and they were still winning.

    Probably the best thing that ever happened to him. He'll get a job with a better team as soon as this year I'd think.

    And that's unfortunate. He can get them to the brink, but that's it. He'll coach them out of ever having a shot at the title.

    The west is so stacked this year, OKC could miss the playoffs. Would be the best thing that ever happened to them.

    Wow. Really didn't see this one coming. What do you expect the guy to do without DMC?

    Prior to the injury they were having their best start in AGES.

    Not the first time I've read this either. Are SBR people for real with this nonsense? Already people were idiots for saying when they were 3-12 but now it's getting really inexcusable. They're basically already in the 8 spot today, just a half game back.

    You think the fukking Suns, Pelicans, or Kings are gonna match their record from here on out now that OKC have caught up with them already unless Durant or Westbrook go down again? All 3 teams are incomparable to OKC.

    Not probable, but possible.

    So there's a 100% chance Westbrook and KD are going to stay healthy all season? Drop one of those guys at any point, and this team is in trouble IMO.

    Agreed! OKC basically went right back into the playoffs. Phoenix did a poor job of winning.

    Phoenix stink. Last season was a complete and utter fluke.

    Well obviously they're in trouble if they lose one of those 2 guys for an extended period of time. But if we're going along those lines then basically any team can miss the playoffs. If Dirk goes down, if Harden goes down, if Aldridge goes down... Their teams are in serious trouble of missing the playoffs as well.

    My post was obviously predicated on both guys staying healthy which is why I said "unless...." at the end. Some people think a healthy Thunder is going to only win like 45 games and hence possibly miss the playoffs. What a fukking joke.

    bad decision. Cousins is the best center in the league and by far the best player on that team. What do you expect. Gay can't win on his own.

    I could see them making a splash with the Nets for Deron Williams and KG.

    Fan base won't like this firing

    Idk how finances would match up but they could ship some stuff to Brooklyn that would keep them competitive. I assume Rudy Gay would have to be involved in any trade since aside from Cousins his salary is bulking enough to even things out a little. Landry could be included as well along with Collison.

    Maybe something like

    GAY, LANDRY, SESSIONS DERRICK WILLIAMS AND MACALLUM FOR

    DERON WILLIAMS, KG, KARSEV AND TELETOVIC

    Cousins
    KG
    TELETOVIC
    McLEMORE
    Williams

    Not a bad line up and Collison could come off the bench which I feel he's more suited for

    Can Teletovic really play the 3 though? Offensively maybe but on defense...

    Don't see this adding much to Sacramento tbh. DWill looks washed up. Maybe a change of scenery would do him good though, who knows.

    They give up all the depth they have with that trade.

    Nets would actually be the winners here, I would feel. Other than the fact that Joe Johnson and Rudy Gay would be a headscratching duo.

    D will does look washed up and honestly idk if it gets Kings in playoffs or makes them much better but I think it's worth a chance and could revitalize the franchise.

    Not like they giving up too much. And for the Nets, they definite stay competitive.

    You could slide Jack in to start at the 1 and put Williams at the 4. With Lopez, Gay and Johnson filling out the other spots. Might be a fun team to watch.

    I feel like the Kings would actually be giving up quite a bit. No big names but basically their whole supporting cast.

    Nets would benefit in some ways for sure. The only thing is you end up with Jack as a shoot-first PG playing with guys like Gay, Johnson and Lopez who all need the ball.

    The Nets would then have to trade Gay or Johnson along with a couple other pieces for Rondo.

    If they could line up Rondo, Johnson/Gay and Lopez that's a solid big 3.

    I doubt the Celtics would want either of those guys' contracts though.
