    Buddy and Bogdan’s extension?

    Yes this is the conundrum of extensions especially if a team hasn't made the playoffs in a long time. What happens with championships? Players become willing to restructure their contracts to win. The Kings had nice uptick last season, and expectations are pretty high now. I'm guessing the...

    Buddy and Bogdan’s extension?

    I agree, I didn't think Barnes was a good signing - they overpaid for him moderately to significantly. The mistake has been made. But had the Kings clawed back some amount of that, would it have affected Hield's outlook? I don't know.

    Buddy and Bogdan’s extension?

    A coach runs the offense for the best shooter. The goal is getting your best shooter the best possible shot through screens, misdirection, or otherwise. Fox is not there yet with his outside shot; he made strides last year. He may be used for his pick and roll and attacking which is fine, but...

    Buddy and Bogdan’s extension?

    You're not showing me anything, and you're not convincing me either. My judgement has been made, so just stop. Go back and rewatch those plays and you can take your stats with you. If and when Brogdan redeems himself, I'll be sure to take notice, and give him more credit,. Right now...

    Buddy and Bogdan’s extension?

    I have no idea what to pay him, but if you're going to overpay someone right now, he's it. I'd put 8 more wins alone last year on his scoring consistency. Put another way if the team didn't have Hield last season, it would've been drudgery to watch with huge question marks. He was by far the...

    Buddy and Bogdan’s extension?

    Brogdon looks like a good player, but was surprised at his contract. Its the new madness in the league. To your point, look at George Hill when the pressure is off on the Bucks - once again looking very keen like with the Jazz or Pacers. Ask him to take on the focus as with the Kings and you...

    Buddy and Bogdan’s extension?

    From memory - he was making bad decisions at the end of the game, as a ball handler if I recall forcing into turnovers, and not particularly good shooting. Looked desperate and out-of-control in a few plays trying to force things. But it wasn't all on him. Their team got shutdown. And how...

    Buddy and Bogdan’s extension?

    You could make that comparison, but you can also widen the view-plane and look at salary-to-talent in general. Anyway, I wouldn't be unhappy if the Kings overpaid for Hield. Of all the Kings *right now*,I think he's worth it. Absolutely love his hustle at both ends. Few if any of the other...

    Buddy and Bogdan’s extension?

    I don't know about Brogdan being better; at least not judging from last year's playoff s losses to Raptors, where he had some poor outings and looked forgettable. But I didn't watch the Bucks much at all. Of course I don't follow regular season the way I used it, where I'd watch massive...

    1st 5 Games Predictions?

    What record do you foresee for the Kings after initial 5 games of the regular season? Strictly on Wins/Losses on their first 5 games Matchups (prediction): @ Suns (W) Trailblazers (W) @ Jazz (L) Nuggets (L) Hornets (W) I'm thinking 3-2, or 2-3. with smaller chances at 1-4 or 4-1 and even...

    Hollinger 30-win prediction

    https://www.yahoo.com/sports/kings-predicted-win-30-games-182633441.html The top article only references Hollinger, from The Athletic who's predicting the Kings tumble back to 30 wins. His reasoning is pretty feeble...."surrounding a young team by Vets too early"? While I'm not really...

    Buddy and Bogdan’s extension?

    https://www.yahoo.com/sports/kings-extend-buddy-hield-bogdan-224239762.html Would like them to resign Hield and give a hefty contract extension. Bogdonovic would be nice too, but difficult to judge his value. His play was inconsistent last year and frankly disappointing.

    [Game] Friday morning game

    Like the NFL, pre-season is hardly worth worrying about. They could go 0-6 and then start the season 4-2 with no worse for wear. More important to stay away from injuries, and give the last 8 through 13 players longer minutes and looks.

    Marvin Bagley III makes All-Rookie 1st team

    Watch some old Chris Bosh highlights during his earlier years, and you'll notice many similarities in play style. I think Bagley has the talent to be that good.
