This quote from interim head coach Keith Smart pretty much sums up Sacramento's season: “Sometimes we score and don't defend and sometimes we defend and don't score.” In other words, they suck. They can't simultaneously do the two things required to win basketball games: play good defense and have effective offense. The Kings score 94 PPG and allow a league's worst 102. You didn't have to be classmates with Jeremy Lin to get the math or figure out why the Kings are the laughing stock of the Pacific division. —Ralph Warner
