That wasn't a bad look for Kobe, but I would've waited for a better one

On the bright side, Dwight had a great first game (especially when you consider he was pretty rusty) and Nash's injury wasn't too serious just a minor ankle sprain.

Oh and why not let Steve Nash try to get somebody open on that play? That's what he does, get the ball and create, we know, he used to do it to us and break out hearts.

The #Lakers shot 50% to the Kings 40% tonight. 22 assists are nice but 22 turnovers erases the effort

Our guys have to figure it out. When they play "free" basketball, everything looks better. Their attempt at a... well, structured offense... wasn't pretty.

Another loss, this time with all the starters available playing regular time.

0 for 6. This is just unacceptable.

This team has being playing with Kobe, Gasol and Artest who are the CORE of a team that won a ring.

I know our bench SUCKS to say the least but come on. 0-6?

By the time (or IF) they put their game in order, they'll be so far a way from the top seeds that they risk to get out in the first round.

At the end of the day, this is just another preseason game.

Just preseason but pretty embarrassing losing to the kings in a game you try to win.

it's been ticking since day 1. the shortened lockout season was the only thing that really gave him some leverage.

Mike Brown is the achilles heel to this team. If they don't win a title, it will be on him and his inability to coach.

Kobe didn't look happy, walked straight off the court at the buzzer.

Under what circumstances can we expect Mike Brown to be replaced with a real head coach?

Well Mike Brown did play all of our bench unit together for long stretches, which hopefully won't happen in the regular season.

it's preseason, but we had no business losing this game. It wasn't just because of the horribad bench, the starters played enough for us to win, but they screwed the pooch in the beginning of the third quarter by giving away most of the lead they built.
