I thought the Kings settled when they asked him back last year... He's not the man for the job. He says the right things, more often than not but doesn't follow through.
example: finding playing time for Jimmer, or when asked about if this team has improved from last year and he said yes... but the record is damn near worse smh. Or inconsistent lineups especially when we need to ride the hot hand.
I think the reason we stuck with Smart is cause the players liked him and him and Boogie developed a good relationship.
What's sad is that, that's the 1st thing these "owners" think about when it comes to anything about this team. They're looking for bargains left and right. It's like going to the store and buying the store brand product instead of the name brand. Nobody wants Grape Drink, we want Grape Juice, fool!!!
This was the 1st time I felt like the Kings players gave up. Maybe the back to back had a lot to do with it. I had watched every minute of every game until this game, I gave up watching when Kings players consistently were not getting back on defense. To me the Kings player looked like they gave up in the 2nd quarter.
Sadly in a couple of years we might be the only team in the NBA who may have 5 players in the starting lineup who were top 5 picks in the draft and still be a lottery quality team.
If the players keep playing like they did tonight, Smart needs to go. It tells me that the players have given up on him.
I look at Brooks and I can see it in his face that he doesn't like playing for Smart. JT is starting to get frustrated too. You see him on the bench all the time and him and Smart are sitting there jabbering at each other about God knows what.
Our beloved Kings team has become nothing more than a joke in this league....(for a few years already lol)...losing to another NBA team by this many is just embarrassing....what a freakin joke.....Smart needs to freakin go IMO.....I'm tired of hearing from smart, " Oh yeah, we're workin' on it..."......how many times are you going to "work" on it...lol....make a trade.....this team is not playing inspired ball......get a veteran in here....Kenyon Martin........we need a spark....it's still very early in the season.....we can turn this thing around....make a trade....sign someone....trade someone for picks i don't give a f@#k......do something.....
Thornton was the only one who showed heart and didn't quit, imo.
Does anyone know why boogie only played 18 mins?
ahhh... the good ole days
