the kings future looks bright
for the first time in awhile. tyreke evans is proving people wrong including me. 19 ppg.5.3 rppg , Omri Casspi was a steal, its time for him to start, thompson is a beast, greene is playing some good d. this team is young but its on the verge on being a really good team down the road. all they need is now a center to help thompson out, maybe trade martin and slide evans to the 2 and get a playmaker point guard.
Yeah, They've been drafting well the last couple of drafts
2009 - Tyreke Evans, Omri Casspi, John Brockman
2008 - Jason Thompson, Donte Greene
2007 - Spencer Hawes
All solid picks, all still developing
Thats how you build a team, draft picks
Still have some holes, but it'll come in due time
I love Brandon Jennings game his game has been off lately and Tyreke has picked his up tyreke is a very good player who good be roookie of the year jennings still deserve it Kings can be a beast team in the future look out for them in bout 3 years. Jason thompson underrated
Jennings doesn't deserve anything at this point... The season is 82 games, not 20.
A lot of people have counted Griffin out, which is silly considering he'll be fresher than every other rookie. He'll be catching his stride while other rookies are hitting that famous rookie wall.
That award is still up for grabs.
Yeah know that jennings is struggling i think rookoe of the year award is up in the air dont count out james harden he been beasting lately yall see the okc vs bucks game harden was killing out there he hit all his threes.
tezo83 im saying if rookie of the year award go out tommorow jennings deserve it thats all im saying
I agree that Jennings is the leader at this point, but this season is still young... A lot of fans acted like they didn't expect him to struggle and the award is just his hands down. EVERY rookie has his struggles.
A lot of people don't think about the fact that Jennings didn't play a lot in Europe. He hasn't played big time minutes since high school and that was only 8 min quarters. You also play no more than 30 games in high school. NOW... He's about to play 82 games... 48 mins per game versus the best competition in the world. He's going to hit that rookie wall, just like every other rookie.
Yeah u got a point tezo83 first everybody was writing him off i remember watching ncaa and every game somebody will bring his name up last year and say stupid move people were calling him bust and in espn mock draft they had him late first round now people jumping on the bandwagon but i been a jennings fan
this draft is full of big men and i think they'll grab someone low key like always and along the lines of Keith Benson(he gave it to Cole Aldrich) and then will be solid and deep at every position. Also the kings have players that can play multiple positions so they can draft almost anywhere(but they really need a center even though hawes has shown improvement recent games)- benos played at 2, thompson is a pf/c(but a better pf), same with hawes, reke can play point and the 2, casspi and donte can play sf and sg
They have a ton of young talent, and I know it was mentioned they need a playmaker pg but I really think Beno Udrih and Sergio Rodriguez are very underrated. Rodriguez isn't the fastest guy but he is QUICK with the ball and Beno is a larger pg that can bang a little but more importantly his left hand kills opponents in the cluth. He drives to the left and throws up a J or a 3 and it goes in whenever the Kings need a bucket. He is their go-to-guy right now. As good as Evans is, Udrih is who they want to have the ball when they need some points. He's coming off the bench right now because I think the Kings want to see if Evans can play pg, but there were a few times in tonights game where Beno, Evans, and Rodriguez were on the floor at the same time, with Casspi at the 4. That's a small lineup, but you have to love what Westphal and Petrie have done with this 17 win team.
