For some reason this junked season isn't paying off. The 4th pick might get a decent player but nothing like having the #1 pick.
Remember I said the league has to take the Kings seriously or they won't get free agents. I think that scenario is playing out in their hunt for a coach. Eddie Jordan just turned his back on the Kings and accepted a $2 mil contract from 76ers or whoever. Imagine that! Jordan has made the decision that going to the Kings is not a good idea.
The Kings' stupidity in the way they handled the last few years lost me as a fan last year. I hope that is understandable. I agree with you that rebuilding is more than a one year process but what could be worse than what has just happened this year?
Forget everything I've written to this point. I am very discouraged. That's the bottom line. You know basketball better than I do and can list all the reasons that have led to my discouragement.
I haven't even read KingsFans as what is said there is so predictable.
Let us hope that the first three teams to pick are Europhobic. With a little luck we could end up with Rubio anyway but otherwise I think we are going to spend another year near the bottom and maybe that's a good thing following the theory of the people who don't pay for tickets to watch the team lose.
Convince me that Rubio is spectacular. I realize that stats don't tell the whole story when evaluating a pg but he scores about 10 ppg and has under 6 or is it 7 assists. That is not startling and bothers me. Tell me not to worry and I'll be OK. I have read enough to know that he is something special. He is multi-talented including in areas that don't show up in the stat sheet. He's also 18. I don't need to know if he is special but just "how special?" Is he really the best pick.
I envision a Jason Williams with judgment. You maybe are too young to remember Jason as a rookie but he was spectacular and also out of control. He DID excite us all.
