1. Isn't it refreshing to see a big (a rookie no less) who makes his free throws. I have always been somewhat perplexed by how awful most bigs shoot FT's even though their game plan includes forcing fouls down low on the block. Cuz looks more then comfortable on the line.
2. I'd like to see the kings throw the ball down low to Cousins and run some inside -out sets. I am noticing a trend of chucking bricks from the outside when the offense bogs down. Its a hard way to get out of a slump. I'm hoping that as our season progresses and the offense matures, we can trust the post to get some easy scores.
3. What's really going on with Donte??? is it just a matter of match ups and other players (Omri in Cleveland;) playing out of their minds? Or is there something deeper going on? Coach mixes up lineups so much that it is hard to read to much in to PT. However, I would hate to see this thing get out of control. Donte appears to be a good fit personality and skills wise.
4. We all loved the hustle of the Brockness, and it was marketing goldmine for last season's campaign, but it looks like GP did it again and mined a nice all-around rotational player in Darnell Jackson.
5. Why can't JT score around the basket? He appears to have all the skills, yet he gets the worst under the basket bounces that I have ever seen. just THROW IT DOWN BIG FELLA!!
6. DMC has hands like velcro. nuff said!!
7. LOVIN THE HOUSE WE ARE BUILDING. gonna be a fun roller coaster season for sure! ultimately, I think we are going to be happy. the energy, the skill sets and, the personalities make for a magnetic team to watch.
