So, now they know what winning at home feels like. Granted it wasn't the rocking Arco of days of old, but it's a step in the right direction. The Sixers pull into town on Thursday with their record of 6-4 but without the services of Jerryd Bayless who is out indefinitely with soreness in the same wrist that kept him out last season. They're saying there's no ligament damage but he is going to be reevaluated, a sign that virtually no Sixer fan thinks is gonna end well. Markelle Fultz is also unavailable for the game, adding to the list of point guards who haven't faced DeFox. Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons are expected to play. There was something for everybody in Tuesday's game. WCS cut his hair. Kings fans early in the game settled in for a loss but were surprised and dare I say thrilled to see the light go on over Buddy Hield's head as he remembered why he's here. And while everybody seemed to be focused on watching Buddy Buckets, both DeFox and JJ looked like they belonged out there, too. Just a glimpse of what's to come for Kings fans, as a tiny little corner of Vlade's vision came into view. I don't like the Sixers. I don't like "the process", I don't like how the sports media fawns over them as though they should be viewed as a blueprint for a successful NBA franchise when, to date, they haven't done diddly and/or squat. Well, wait. They did select Franklin the Dog as their mascot in 2015. I just want to see heart and hustle, energy and effect...again. I know there will be times when it looks like a bunch of 4-year-olds playing t-ball for the first time and that's fine. I just want to see them TRY. We're blessed to have a LOT of talent on our team, I just hope to see them working to use that talent together. It may be frustrating, but it's still a good time to be a Kings fan. Oh, and one more thing? Dave Joerger deserves a real round of applause. He's tasked with the responsibility of putting all those kids in a position to succeed and at times it looks like he's trying to herd cats.
