: : WTF? King? LMAO!! Really...King?? You must either be an Inland Empire fan or God forbid a King parent to think that King belongs in the Open Division smacks of pure stupidity. No team from the Big VIII belong in the Open Division. Centennial made it once but that was because they acquired the talent through recruiting. I saw the teams at Lynwood and a lot of other teams throughout my travels around Southern California and King is not an Open team and will be lucky to make it out of the first round in the Division 1 playoffs. King is scrappy but they don't have the coaching or the talent to compete with the top teams. Sorry to burst your bubble. As for the other teams on this list it is a decent list. It will be interesting to see what CIF does because there will be at least one "elite" team that will not make it into the Open Division. It could be a Mater Dei or maybe a Long Beach Poly. CIF is all about making money and if they can come up with a reason to drop one of the "elite" teams they will.
: King competed against 2 of the top teams on that list. You must hate King or are too short to see talent. Coach is doing great with not a lot of talent, minus the pg.
Competed? Yeah on the second court of a showcase. Did King play on the main court? Did they? They competed but did they beat these top teams? Was it close? From what I remember it wasn't and both of the top teams were rotating kids in and out of the game meanwhile King kept their main players in even during garbage time.
I like it when you say that I am too short to see talent but then you say, "Coach is doing great with not a lot of talent." LMAO! So right there you contradicted yourself!! LOL!!
Like I said the other day, the King coach will be outcoached and has no clue how to coach. All he does is act like a 5-year old and acts like a fool. Come playoff time King will be exposed as usual.
I don't hate King, I just don't like when fans/parents of an average team thinks that they belong with the "elite" teams. Okay let me ask you this since you are a Big VIII fan. What has been King's biggest win? Who has King beaten of any significance outside of their league?
Let's take that one step further shall we? According to MaxPreps since 2007 King is 237-127 overall and 77-67 in the Big VIII. But King is 3-16 versus Centennial, 9-10 versus Roosevelt, 8-11 versus Santiago, 10-9 versus Norco and 21-0 versus Corona. Just face it, King on average is a third place team in their league and hardly makes it past the 2nd round of the playoffs. Last year, King hit the jackpot and got a Division 1 player and still didn't play anybody of significance or beat anybody of significance.
If you think King is so GOOD, then you tell everyone what you think King will do this season. Give us a prediction on how King will do. But I know all we will hear is silence from you.
