Weekend poll: Which Kings starting position is most in need of an upgrade?

Leading Off: 10 pressing questions in the world of sports

Published: Friday, Feb. 21, 2014 - 9:01 pm

• The Kings’ Isaiah Thomas is having his best season, averaging 20.3 points and 6.3 assists, but should he be a starting point guard in the NBA?

• Kings coach Michael Malone said he intends to play rookie Ray McCallum more; does that mean we’ll see less of Jimmer Fredette?

• When the Kings traded Marcus Thornton to the Nets for Jason Terry and Reggie Evans, was your first reaction, “Huh?”

• After the Kings-Nets deal, is there any doubt that many NBA trades are made for reasons other than basketball ability?

• If reports of trade talks between the 49ers and Browns for Jim Harbaugh are true, is that an indication the team isn’t sure it can re-sign the coach for the money – and control – he likely wants?

• The agreement to erect a facility at Cal Expo for Republic FC games is good news, but will fans fill the 8,000 seats for minor-league soccer?

• We applaud Republic FC founder Warren Smith’s efforts to land a Major League Soccer team, but where are the deep pockets to match Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank?

• After being suspended for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy (see Davis, Fred), would you drink and drive the next afternoon?

• After Canada’s thrilling 1-0 victory over the United States in the Olympic men’s hockey semifinals, won’t it be a letdown to watch NHL regular-season games?

• Why is NBC (Channel 3) making viewers wait until 8:30 p.m. Sunday to see the Olympic Closing Ceremony, delayed 12 1/2 hours?
