    Demarcus Cousins is having an out of this world season. A PER over 27 and per 36 numbers that are Shaq-esque

    The Kings have played rather well lately. At least at home they have.

    Lets go get the win! Hopefully the rest we got helps get PG back on track

    The Kings don't really play defense and we don't really play offense. Movable object meets stoppable force.

    Hill should be able to post up Issah Thomas

    This is a mindset that can cause some of the negativity in these gamethreads, and not to single you out either because you CERTAINLY are not the only one who thinks this way you just were the one to give me the example. So please don't take offense to this.

    You can't expect a blowout, because this is the NBA. In college there is a HUGE HUGE dropoff between even between #1 and #10. In the NBA there is probably less of a dropoff talent wise from #1 to #30 than there is in College from #1 to #5. That said, anyone can make a game interesting any night, and a win is still a win whether you win by 70 or 1.

    DeMarcus Cousins or Anthony Davis - if you were a GM offered one of the two, which would you take?

    AD probably, Demarcus Cousins seems to be a bit of a problem child, and AD has a little more upside IMO.

    Did you factor in injury concerns?

    I will be disappointed if we do not end the game with 1 or more points than the Kings.

    Blowouts are great, but in the grand scheme of things with us aiming for the #1 seed, we just need games to end up in the "W" column. How they get there isn't terribly important.

    It's been moved to NBATV due to the Tuesday night Fan Vote.

    Anthony Davis without a second's hesitation.

    It will be a tough game. DeMarcus can match Roy and PG has had trouble in the past against Gay. Lance will have to be big tonight. Same goes for Hill and West.
    Tonight, all flags must burn, in place of steeples.
    Autonomy must return into the hands of the people.

    CJ Watson - 20 points on 6/10 shooting!

    Yeah, I did. But unfortunately most teams don't want to take in a Lance Stephenson like project, where the results can be great but the bad can be terrible, and that includes me.

    The safer pick seems to be Davis. That's just because of Boogies past tantrumes. But honestly I think they'll both be top 10 players in 5 years. If I've got a good wing player I'm going with Cousins, good point guard more leaning towards Davis. Actually... I'll take Davis. I just think he's going to be a force in the near future.

    Cousins looks so lazy sometimes on the court. And he already averages 23 and 11.
