    Kings trade Tyrese and Buddy for Sabonis and Holiday and Lamb

    Like I said. Maybe the plan was to showcase him. Data don't lie https://www.nba.com/stats/team/1610612758/onoffcourt-summary/?sort=DIFF_NET_RATING&dir=1

    Kings trade Tyrese and Buddy for Sabonis and Holiday and Lamb

    I don't think you have all the signals you need to make an informed conclusion. https://www.nba.com/stats/team/1610612758/onoffcourt-summary/?sort=DIFF_NET_RATING&dir=1 Haliburton actually makes the team worse offensively and defensively when he was on the floor. He was not ready to start...

    The money is already guaranteed before the beginning of last season.

    Lol this sounds almost like Ben Simmons. Actually this is Ben Simmons. Fox is better than 70% free throw shooters.

    Predict the Starting Lineup / Rotation

    That was one of the best offensive lineups in the entire league last year. That lineup also played 425 minutes, which is pretty big sample size. https://go.nba.com/8wie Bagley's offensive rebounding is more than makeup for any lack of floor spacing. Looks like a proven successful lineup to me.

    2021 Free Agency Mega Thread

    Capela's contribution is what brought the Hawks from a bad offensive and bad defensive team in 2019-2020 to a good offensive team and mediocre defensive team in 2020-2021. Well not entirely on him but most of it. Holmes sure did help with our offense (though still not as much impactful as...

    Expectations of Kings' defense, 2021-22

    I agree with most of it. I just don’t think Walton is a bad coach. He maybe is average or below average. They really need to blast it out of the gate this year. They can surprise a lot of teams if they can push the transition offense, like the Joerger’s 18-19 team. They were the best...

    Expectations of Kings' defense, 2021-22

    As a whole, the league had an excellent offense year last year. Somehow the stars were aligned that the top 7 offense (Nets, Bucks, Trailblazers, Nuggets, Clippers, Jazz, and Suns) all performed at historic level. What is interesting and unique is the decrease of pace from previous season...

    Expectations of Kings' defense, 2021-22

    It is completely fair to assume this. But we had decent defensive centers before and we were still no more than 20th rank defense. It is debatable where the problem lies, the bad guards or the under-average center. Well it is easier to improve from the center position than the guard, at...

    Expectations of Kings' defense, 2021-22

    Well defensive rebounding was a big part of why they were the 2 worst defenders on the team. All of advanced stats point to them being the worst defenders on the team. This is DRPM from ESPN. Hali is 90th out of 91 PGs. Fox is 29th...

    Expectations of Kings' defense, 2021-22

    It can be difficult to believe because how active and long both Fox and Hali are. But you know what, they are both horrible defensive rebounders. It does not matter what you do during the defensive possessions if at the end you can't secure them. This team was 29th in defensive rebounding...

    Expectations of Kings' defense, 2021-22

    This is true except for the fact that the two worst defenders on the team are Fox and Hali, by a wide margin.

    They need to stop the switching defensive scheme with Fox. He is not interested in boxing out big guys or rebounding in traffic.

    Expectations of Kings' defense, 2021-22

    That is a great offensive lineup though. 404 minutes last season which is the 9th most used lineup in the entire league. +7.6 net rating. It can't defend anyone but it can outscore anyone. I would not start with that still. It is just a horrible defensive rebounding team. I expect Fox...

    A bunch of centers

    Teams can be contenders with or without dominant big men. They just need quality rotation bigs. Teams like Clippers, Nets, Blazers and Suns are built around 2 or more dominant guards/wings. Teams like Hawks and Mavs have one dominant guard/wing. Teams that have dominant big men like 76ers...
