Joe Maloof - 'The ship's not sinking'

With Connor's wedding coming up in three weeks and the possibility of some house guests, we are making a push to get the house in shape. We spent most of the day working on a project in the upstairs hallway that we started more than six months ago!

After getting Jack to bed, Sharon and I watched Something's Gotta Give with Jack Nicholson and Diane Keaton. Keaton was nominated for a Academy Award for Best Actress for her role in the film.

It is going to be interesting to see what the Kings do with the team in the off-season. There is an article in today's Sacramento Bee that suggests the changes will not be drastic. Joe Maloof says the pieces are still in place for the team to contend for an NBA title. In the article Joe tells the story of running into John Madden at a bar mitzvah shortly after the Timberwolves knocked the Kings out of the playoffs.

"And he [John Madden] says to us [Joe and Gavin Maloof], 'Lemme tell ya something: You guys are so close. You were four free throws away from going to the Western Conference finals.' He says, 'Be careful. Don't do drastic things. This is still one of the top teams in the NBA.' "
I do not agree; I believe that the Kings need to add a younger, more athletic big player like Zach Randolph.
