    absolutely useless press conference from vlade. Every cliche is being used. We're changing the culture. We're gonna be fun. We're gonna compete and make the playoffs, blah blah blah.

    Vlade, "I felt like this was the best time to move forward......."

    I hate Vlade so much right now.

    "Culture culture culture."

    Vlade, "we had a better deal 2 days ago than what we got now".

    Thats why he thought the closer we got to the deadline the worse the deals would get.

    Yeah with 5 players injured.....and trying to hang on for a playoffs seat - obviously Vlade/Management had no confidence in that outcome. But no, I still think it was cold-feet with money that drove the substandard trade.

    After blurbing, "we hope Cousins is here for a long time" to ESPN not 3 weeks ago? :)

    vlade just reiterated that we had a better offer 2 days ago, they let it hang there and it disappeared.

    From what I can tell it looks likeVlade is taking the hit for this one, fine then this one's all in your head. I don't agree with but I can understand the argument to trade DeMarcus Cousins but if that was the case there's no hurry and he certainly could have been shopped around for a better deal. Moreover now you are the one who has to take responsibility for making a promise and breaking it and that kills your credibility is a GM. I love Vladeas a player and respect what he did for the game internationally but I've lost all faith in him as a GM at this point. People can rail against ownership all they want but until they take responsibility or somebody hold him accountable for this decision I have to assume it came from Vlade because he's out there claiming he made the call

    what would vlade like to see from this team from here on out.

    "what we saw against the celtics."

    Give me a break. This team won't play another single game up to that level.

    True? If so it validates what I was wondering just last week.....that game had a big impact management.

    to reitereate, vlade said vivek didn't know what was going on, until vlade went up to him and told him "we're trading cousins".

    Damien, "I'm almost speechless."

    Jim Crandell asked vlade about lying to his agents and if that would have an impact later. Vlade, "your gonna have to ask those other agents."

    I think you are going to find out very quickly that magically DMC is a great winner and even potential future champion, when he is gifted to another franchise that suddenly is able to surround him with talent. New Orleans came out of this with nearly a completely complete team. And Cuz. And even Omri. In a few days they might add Barnes as well. If they scrounge up a SG who can really shoot, all of a sudden there is almost no weakness.

    the Kings though can enjoy holding their head high as post-Barkley Philadelphia in 1992. If you can keep the tank going long enough, maybe after 5 more years of misery you can draft your own Iverson and be ready to make the playoffs by 2025.
