There are no more excuses.
Short preseason due to lockout? Nope.
New coach trying to get his feel for the team? Nope.
Young players who came in out of shape? Nope.
Just plain crappy talent? Well, yes.
The inexcusable performance by the hometown Kings against the visiting Warriors on Tuesday night was so downright ugly, so sadly unwatchable, so depressing to the fans, there is only one thing the team can do.
Make a trade. A big trade. And make it fast. Because Kings fans don't deserve a team and management so hesitant and reluctant to pull the trigger on anything remotely resembling an impact move.
So Mr. Petrie, what are you going to do today as trade deadline approaches?
Ignore the phone? Wait for free agency again when no worthwhile talent would even sniff Sacramento?
It's your move, Geoff.
Time to regain your reputation. Time to breathe new life into the franchise.
No more excuses.
