07:24 AM ET 11.18 | Old habits die hard. [Maybe] this is just who the Kings are -- a team with unpredictable levels of effort and focus -- and that won't change unless players change. There was talk of changing the culture postgame, and how much work that takes. The work will begin to take hold when the Kings realize they have to hold themselves accountable and not accept subpar effort from themselves and teammates. "As a group, as a unit, as a team, we've just got to get tired of losing," said forward John Salmons. "If you're tired of losing when we're down in the third quarter like that you wouldn't come out with the lack of energy like we did. I think guys are used to it and it shows on the court. When you have that mentality it's hard to break those habits."
