    So? I'm pretty sure most of us are taking into account the whole season as to why we liked him.
  2. Houston @ Memphis 11/18/17

    Of course, because he's Marc. He gets defeated at the first sign of challenge and adversity unless the entire city, head coach, the players, Conley, and his older brother beg him to be an alpha it seems.

    They brought a certain energy as well. Just supreme confident guys when it comes to shooting. Felt like it was contagious at times.

    Click clock. Really for Fizdale to start calling out Gasol to be more soon. Only chance we have at being good is that.

    Clickity click, clock. BenMac is our new Troy Daniels except not nearly as exciting or trustworthy to chuck it.

    He also doesn't get locked down by guards/forwards in critical stretches of games.

    His lack of desire is contagious, or for better terms, cancerous.
  8. Houston @ Memphis 11/18/17

    Oh absolutely. We will grab the 7th or 8th seed again, Marc will have 2 good and then disappear or get locked down by a guard and we get knocked out first round.

  10. Joerger won 59% running his players into the ground. Fizdale implemented an entire new system, is willing to rotate youth, and actually rested his guys a ton.

    Nobody wanted to listen to me and decided to attack me when I said not to get so excited by a team and players that do the same thing EVERY year. Start out completely dominating, Marc aggressive, shooters loose and attacking strong on both ends. This is the year... Oops.. then Marc starts deferring and heads for a mental vacation only to have us fall to a 7/8 seed when we clearly have potential for a top 5 seed.. confused why we drop so many winnable games...then we get into playoffs re-energized, show flashes that we really could have done damage this year......only to see the Spurs or Warriors in the first rounds due to not getting a higher seed.. Marc has 2 great MVP games, then continues to get shut down by a SF, defers to Conley, slams ball, lose in 6, retool some of the role players, rinse & repeat.

  13. I disagree with that, numerous times we'd play down to whatever team regardless of coach. Sure Dave would get us up for regular season, to the degree he would burn everybody out. That was a main knock on him, so it's a positive and a negative.
  14. I did enjoy Hubie. Also not having to listen to him ramble on ESPN broadcast was nice.
  15. Thought this would be a fun idea. More of an off-season thread but I got to thinking about it the other day when watching some Kings ball under Joerger...and seeing him do the same exact Zbo post up offense with them made me appreciate Fiz a bit more again. Coaches: Hollins (A-): What can I say, he got us the furthest we've ever been and had an elite working unit. He was a hard-nosed guy, no question, but it got the best out of a once great core. He had his flaws, but that WCF run was magical. Also, this was just before the 3 point boom took full effect so it wasn't too outdated yet and the last of an era of basketball style imo. He was the only coach to whip Marc into shape as well. Imagine current Marc under Hollins? Would be great. A- might be generous but I'm sticking with it. Fizdale (B+): So far, I really can't complain about Fiz. He came in and instantly made an impact and brought life to a dying team with a much more upbeat style and rhythm offense. He got more out of Conley (possibly thinks too much of him though) and Marc and just about everyone not named Zbo. Although, I thought if Zbo would have bought in more, he would have flourished. He has his flaws as well, but really can't complain with what he's done so far. Hubie (B) : Not bad, Not great Iavaroni (C): Fratello (C-): Joerger (D+): I know I may get heat for this..but I thought and still think Joerger is an awful coach. He has a poor man's Hollins offense, with less respect, and beyond outdated in today's game. He has an odd and stubborn rotation approach. The only thing he was really good at was out of bounds plays, since he's good at Xs and Os. But running a full game was consistently hard to completely took shooters out of the offense and ball handlers, which semi worked with Zbo and Gasol, but when Zbo started fading and Gasol refused to step up in big moments, it was doomed to's not a coincidence that his teams consistently can't shoot despite personnel. Right now the Kings are dead last in 3PA even with a shooting core. Aka, I don't miss him.
