The Kings Screwed It Up!

First of all, it’s important to note that making predictions on draft night, or trying to grade teams’ picks, is a fool’s game. None of these guys has played an NBA game yet, and trying to parse the difference between Marvin Bagley III, whom the Kings just drafted at number-two overall, and Luka Doncic, who appeared to be the obvious choice at that spot, doesn’t really work until the season starts.

Now that the disclaimer is out of the way—Vlade Divac, you dope! You goofball! You admittedly very good center but utterly incompetent basketball executive! How do you blow this unblowable opportunity when you have the number-two pick in a draft with a consensus top two? What are you thinking, man?


What a dolt. The Dallas Mavericks are reportedly going to fall ass backwards into a mouthwatering European prospect, while the 27-55 Kings get absorbed in team chemistry over talent.
