The Crosspath

I think this team has been real unfortunate this year. I dont think we're terrible but we're an seventh/eighth seeded team at best, however we're one trade for a good big man away from doing some real nice things in the West. That guy would be Pau Gasol but he's likely not going to come here. I really think there is two crossroads here:

  1. Kings pull off a Gasol trade without giving up BIbby, Miller, Artest or Martin
  2. The Kings blow it up and go for  youth and hopefully free agency aids the team.
I really feel we have some nice pieces but I don't think its enought for a Gasol or Garnett. Those are the type of players this team needs, a bonafide superstar big man. We really have to put things in perspective, for the long haul. This team is good enough to be a .500 team.  Im thinking the law of averages is coming to fruition with this team. We'll probably be somewhere around the 38-43 win mark, at best. That's our window. However, is that what the team wants, to be? .500 and maybe sneak into the playoffs?  I keep hearing guys that they'd love to somehow find a way to grab the 8th spot in the playoffs but is that what this team wants for the longhaul?

I personally feel this five game winning streak may be a bit of evening things up and hopefully Petrie will do the right things and either get Gasol OR blow this team up. However, the staying pat solution gets this team nowhere, no enough for a salivating prospect and not enough for championship contender.
