Just thought I should drop that here, for those who remember Omri fondly... :)
He had a GREAT game in GSW tonight, on both ends of the court, as you can see here:
Still early, but I figured I would post those charts now, after we balance things up a bit with a W...
I will post the updated charts later-on this season, every now and then.
Let me know what you think.
Home Season Openner!
And the game is back on.
Time to predict the results of Kings' game #1:
At G1C vs the Rockets, Wednesday 10/18, 7pm
List of all predictors last season:
And to you, prediction virgins... :D It's never too late to start...
Predictions are accepted HERE till tip-off (in...
Hi everyone. An exciting night !!
Kings' first game of the season!!
And it's a home game -
The Rockets come here on a second night of a B2B,
just after facing... GSW!!! (And Casspi!)
Think you know how it ends?
I hereby launch the 2nd year of the Kings results prediction game!
Our former King, Omri Casspi, just signed a new one-year vet minimum contract with a team that shall not be named,
and he has super-high chances to log his first minutes of post-season this year (and even fair chances to land himself a ring :eek:),
But today it all probably comes second to the...
"New Orleans is waiving forward Omri Casspi, signing guard Reggie Williams, league sources tell @TheVertical. Casspi out with broken thumb."
Omri played one (decent) game for them, and will now miss 4-6 weeks again.
The Pels just wouldn't wait for him to recover... :(
I saw that some of the...
Would any of you, regular prediction-game dwellers (or KFs in general), be interested in setting up a parallel prediction game about the results of Boogie's & Omri's new team?
(Just until the end of the season, I guess)
This is deinitely NOT meant for fans of any other teams, nor does it imply...
A fighter (relentless), a lover (for those who know Shani),
a great team-mate, and always a King (twice and counting).
We love you, Omri.
We can tell you have a true purple heart.
It's a good thing you go with Cuz, so you can watch each others backs in there!
Make the best of it, man...
Sorry for starting this one for you, @VF21...
I hope it's OK.
Predictions are on for Kings' game #37...
At G1C vs the Clippers, Friday 1/6, 7:30pm
Last call to some remaining regulars:
Missed you lately, buddies. Don't be strangers:
Never too late to come home, lost brothers:
Below are some specific On/Off Court advanced stats I gathered (from this page on Stats.nba.com)
to try and see how various Kings' players are effecting our Ball Sharing and Rebounding
(two major weaknesses of our team, IMHO).
I wasn't sure which of 2 the Ball-Sharing stats (AST%...
No Jazz game thread available yet, so I'll just sneak that in here...
Utah has the league's best D by an UNREAL margin!
#1 in (lowest) Opponent Points
#1 in (lowest) Opponent FG%
#1 in (lowest) Opponent Assists
#3 in (lowest) Opponent Boards (#1 in lowest opponent DREB)
The Mavs game thread is not up yet, and I just had to post it somewhere... :D
I know that Dallas is one of the league's worst rebounding teams this season
(Perhaps THE worst. I mean, we're not really great in that regard ourselves, and they're much worse)...
But I just had to share this image...
The Kings have made the news (or record books) more than once, with the number of 3pt shots attempted or made against them. :oops:
I seem to remember that we are the unwilling record holders for most 3-pointers allowed per season in the history of the NBA - a record we set last year. :(
Hi everyone!! An exciting night!!
I want to try and run a prediction game for tonight,
and if it catches - we can go on, and make it a full season game.
It's your (our) decision. :)
I'd like to propose my own scoring rules, that proved very balanced and successfull
in a prediction game that...
There was much ado lately (in these forums at least) about DMC having/lacking chemistry with other players on the team, and about his positivse/negative team impact in general, and specifically on the defensive end.
I decided to try and check some lineup stats to get a feeling about...
I didn't notice that so badly using the simple eye-test in our games...
But it seems that we negatively stand out on D, allowing our opponents the highest FG% in the league BY FAR around our basket (shots taken from less than 5ft):
See in the Opponent-Shooting Team Stats, HERE.
Here's Omri's production in the first 3 friendly matches he played for the Israeli national team, in preparation for the Eurobasket 2015 next month.
(All 3 were losses... the team is really not gelled together so far :(. Casspi was the team's leading scorer in all 3 games, though).
Game 1, vs...
