Salmons Becoming Vocal Leader for Kings
John Salmons called for a players-only meeting after the Kings lost to the Atlanta Hawks by 16 on Nov. 16.
There was no players-only meeting after Saturday night’s game at Staples Center. But Salmons was clearly bothered by the outcome.
“If you’re going to write anything, this is strictly on the players,” Salmons said after the Kings were dismantled 116-81 by the Los Angeles Clippers. ”It’s not the coach’s fault.”
The Clippers looked like a team with championship aspirations. The Kings looked like a team that had checked out before the game started.
With their third consecutive loss, the Kings fell to 4-12, worst in the Western Conference.
The Kings also dropped to 0-6 on the road. The only other winless team on the road is the Washington Wizards, who lost their first 12 games overall before winning Wednesday.
