Me and my friend have a longstanding argument, he believes we should make as many moves as possible to contend now (which in his mind include adding Hedo Turkoglu and Michael Pietrus. *Sigh*.), whilst I think that mortgaging our future for a playoff appearance is foolish in the face of building over time like most small market teams must do a la. San Antonio Spurs/Oklahoma City Thunder/etc.
But this conversation got me thinking, where would you, the fan, want the Kings to be next May? After a short period of perusing this subject, I noticed that there were two schools of thought, primarily. One side, believes that we will squeak into the playoffs as an 8th seed to inevitably play the [redacted]. The other thinks that we will place within the bottom 10 teams of the league.
Here's an article that places each Western Conference team in a rank:
This has us ranked as the 10th seed in the Western Conference. That figures us to be in the 10-15 segment of the draft once again, which is improvement, definitely. We'd need to win about 40 games to get to the 10th seed this upcoming year and that is a good deal of improvement from this year.
In my opinion, this is an accurate depiction for us as a team and we will continue to grow through the draft by picking in the 10-14 spot.
Lastly, how do you think the roster will look after this season? Will we look significantly different in our core or will we stay with this current squad the entire year?
Where will the Kings be next May? How will the look?
