    “The next thing is the Draft over there on Thursday. We’re going to blow that. Then the next one is the summer camp. We’ll not win there, too. Then we’re going to come home next preseason and not win one game, and everyone will say what a horrible season this will be.”

    Kings got robbed in the draft order. They will be league worst again, and hope for a top 3 pick in next years lottery. Dont have much to offer in trades either besides Kevin Martin. Phil will have his hands full.
