So a couple notes on tonight's game and a bad, collective Kings team.

Demarcus Cousins looked miserable tonight. To say he looks disinterested in playing for Sactown is an understatement.

Nonetheless, I think he's still a very talented center.

Tyreke Evans is also really good.

Call me crazy or hasty, but the Sullinger back spasm worries me a bit ONLY because this was the word on him when he was in college, that he had back issues.

Anyway, if the Kings agreed to this deal, I would make it anyday and twice on Sunday.

Helps the Celts for the short term and the long term (since the long term seems to be so important to alot of posters here on CB. ;))

As for Sacramento (or Seattle) they're not going anywhere anytime soon, so maybe they do this for next year and beyond.

Goodness, no.  I don't see how becoming the Kings helps us in the short term or the long term.

Starting five of Tyreke, Lee or Barbosa, Pierce, KG and Cousins.

I'll take that starting five vs Miami anytime!

Tyreke Evans. Or Lee, or Barbosa, or Terry.

Smh are you serious, none of those guys are points guards and the guy who might give you some defense is lee and you think that starting five could challenge the heat, think again

Yup, I've thought about it long and hard. And yup, the Celtics beat the Heat in a 7 game series with that lineup.

Only 1 team in the league is even stupid enough to try Evans at the point and he's on it now.   

Evans and Cousins are 2 of the most selfish players in the league.  No way.  BTW I don't think either team would do it.

Tyreke in 2 years will be one of the best PG in the NBA

I wouldn't

Tyreke can't play D, Pierce is getting old and so is KG...Cousins is good but you gotta pair him up with a passing pg...and we aren't getting passed Miami with just Lee d'ing Wade up...its gonna take a combine effort of two good defensive guards like Lee and Bradley to stop or negate Wade from their big 3
