41 games into the season: Mid-Term Report Card

Core_medium 

Halfway through the 2009-10 season and a time to discuss how the team makes the grade as seen through my eyes.  A full report card is too long so I will break this down into 4 parts. The Core, The Near Core, The Here Todays, The Coaching & Front Office. Today, the Core.

 

Tyreke Evans: the first superstar drafted by the Kings since arriving in Sacramento. To help his transition from college star to NBA superstar coach Paul Westphal has handed this 20 year old the reigns to the team. Tyreke has responded with some game winners and an amazing degree of consistency. The League has taken notice. The Blueprint is on schedule, as Rookie of the Year honors seem to be a fait accompli. A

Kevin Martin: After doing what Kevin do for 5 games and a 30 ppg average, Kevin went on the injured list and has just returned for 4 games. Kevin was at every game, talking to the rookies and remaining involved, putting his disappointment aside after a summer of great NBA and Sacramento King ambassadorship. INC

Jason Thompson: The most durable King continues to be a double-double threat improving his game from last season. This second year player has his ups and downs but his passion and energy are there every game. JT has been much like the Kings team this season – he began with a flourish and raised expectations for both himself and his fans  to the point that his deficiencies stand out.  Defensive footwork and decision making in particular need improvement. B-

Omri Casspi: The 23rd pick has proven he has a bright future in this league. Omri responds quickly to correct his flaws. Can’t shoot? 45% 3 pt shooting. Couldn’t hit free throws? Corrected. What about when not hitting 3s? He has been showing the running floater. Need rebounds? Check. There seems to be no quit in his game. Casspi wants to play every minute of every gameOh, and you don't want to see the Mean Face. B-
