kings vs crocS

how the heck where the kings depleted- missing luke cooper?

and surely, they will not have 5000+ at future home games if the score is 59-64 at the end- PATHETIC

That was quite possible THE WORST GAME OF BASKETBALL I HAVE EVER SEEN.

Unbelieveably bad. Scoreline at the end flatters both teams.

What the hell are the Kings doing putting on a show like that? People are going to be staying away droves if that trash continues.

Good start by Wagner. Horrible start by Kendall.

I was there as well.
The NBL has issues here. There is way too much filler on some of these rosters....

Graeme Dann is an ABA player at best.

Kendall has been sipping beers on his back porch since his last NBL game.

The new Kings player from WA isn't up to it. Blagoj Janev?

The imports for both the Crocs and Kings aren't import standard - they are laughable.

I know Adelaide fans have fond memories of Grizzard but he was bad tonight. Plain bad.

These guys play once a week in a competition that really isn't particularly demanding or professional.

If it's your full time jopb to play basketball as a professional, then you should be better than that.

Sydney, the end might be sooner than you think.

Sydney's prospects were always flattered a bit by that opening game against a woeful Melbourne.

anonymous- your comments are spot on the money!!! i did like janev, grizzard and ben knight when they were at the slingers- but tonight i think they showed why no one else would recruit them.

blalock led the game in scoring with 13?

Anon, what fond memories do the people of Adelaide have of Grizzard? He is a nothing player that looks like he could do some damage yet never does anything. He is getting 8ppg on a bad kings team in which he should be showing leadership and having a go. I heard someone say that Taj looks like an overweight Mike chappell and I somewhat agree. The kings are a team that actually needs the imports to bring the crowd in and at this stage (BORING)!!!!!!!

Agree with a lot of what's been said above - what made anyone think this Sydney team would be remotely competitive based on the roster they've assembled and a head coach who hasn't coached anything more than an under 14 team before?

I mean, outside of Khazzouh, Luke Martin and Luke Cooper, what players on the Sydney roster would step right into another team's lineup?

Graeme Dann is a headcase who can't shoot the ball to save his life. Blagoj Janev is a big guy with no heart who prefers to shoot from the outside (which he doesn't do very well anyway) rather than use his size in the paint, plus he couldn't defend a chair. Both imports are absolute and unequivical garbage. McCullough might be one of the worst imports ever to put on a Sydney uniform - and that's saying something - and Grizzard is a peaheart with talent who has been mailing it in most of his life. Damien Ryan can shoot but he's painfully slow and can't beat anyone off the dribble, Jared Scoines failed at West Sydney, Ben Madgen has been struggling and didn't even make last night's roster and Ben Knight is finished as an NBL player.

This is a pathetic roster done entirely on the cheap. They had 5500 last night - there will be less than 3000 the next game against New Zealand. Sydney fans will not put up with the kind of excrement that was served up last night - and the worry is that without a team to get excited about, poor crowds and no sponsors, the new ownership will pull the pin sooner rather than later.

Thats the sadly ironic thing, the Kings are planning to survive this year first and foremost and because of that they are rubbish to watch and it may send em broke.

They've only put together a budget team to try and build something stable. Hopefully fans recognise that and try to support them while they become established.

Kendall is next to useless right now. Shadow of his former self. I heard he got 7 steals though which is pretty awesome.

A lot of kiwis living in Sydney, it might appear more like a Breakers home game than kings.

Why would fans support a team that has no chance of success? It's one thing to keep an eye on the financial side of things but fans know when you're taking the piss.

Some fans support their team through thick and thin, including rebuilding years. Wollongong are a budget operation again and fans would've respected their efforts even if they hadn't had success the last year or so. Gruber has been a budget import for years. They got luckier with Ervin than the Kings did with McCullough, and have McLeod - so be it.

If you don't want to watch the Kings, no one's making you. I don't find them particularly interesting this year, but it seems like a decent number of fans have still got out there to appreciate whatever NBL basketball they can get in Sydney.

When the Kings spent up, they went under and the local fans had nothing to support.
