Hey, we've all been there. You get put on the spot, a little too much truth dribbles out, you verbally (hmm, shall we say....) "flop" in front of the entire office, and all the sudden everyone you work with (hopefully temporarily) thinks you're an idiot/asshole. We are all familiar with the flavor of our own foot so I don't want to be too harsh here, but Vlade Divac should probably feel a twinge dumber than Bill in sales did after talking too freely about Karen in accounting's sudden weight gain. Those size 23's probably can't get shoved deep enough down the esophagus of the Vice President that just casually admitted that he is woefully incompetent at thee most important aspect of his high profile job. With great power comes great responsibility, so I don't think asking the man in charge of one of the most hopeless franchises in all of sports to bite his tongue when it comes to discussing the day-to-dysfunctional-day operations of a dumpster fire is too absurd of a demand.
If you know enough about sports to be able to pick a basketball out of a lineup than it's more probable than not that you already knew that the Sacramento Kings got taken to the woodshed by an exchange that undoubtedly makes the emasculated world leaders feel better about the outcome of getting dapped to hell and back by Donald Trump. For that reason, it was nearly impossible for Vlade Divac to make things worse. If there's ONE positive to being a completely inept executive it's that the stupidity of your personnel decisions is supposed to speak for itself worse than any 7 foot Serbian ever could. Somehow Vlade Divac's random act of unnecessary disclosure dug out a basement under rock bottom.
It was no secret that the Kings spent damn near two full seasons getting far more enticing offers than the one they eventually accepted, but 36-48 HOURS prior?!? That was such a moronic, tone deaf thing to say that I almost have to believe he only said it because he was focusing so hard on not saying it. My deepest sympathies go out to him for getting put in a fucking bodybag by the moment, but you can't take pot shots at a former player for contributing to a "losing culture" as the guy who actively sabotaged the team he runs...
