Keys to Success (or failure)


I believe most of our cap space will go to Thorton and no major signing beyond that. So assuming we don't land a top teir player and our team remains relatively unchanged from last season here is what I think needs to happen for a successful season.

 

1) DMC needs to dominate down low.

2) Donte Greene needs to finally earn the starting SF spot and play consistently.

3) Tyreke needs to drive to the basket and dish the ball off to a Ferdette or Thorton for open shots.

4) The MOST important thing --- Westphal has to finally make a decision about his line up and keep it for more than three games!!!

 

If all of the above happens I think Sacramento can compete for an 8th seed. However quite easily none of the above happens and we get to watch Westphal shuffle line ups all season (and not because of injury), DMC shoot 12-18 foot jumpers, Tyreke drive and shoot all season and Donte cheer from the bench while Salmons becomes a black hole on offense holding the ball and taking his jumpers. If all that happens it will be a LONG season, even though it will only be 66 games.

 

Lastly how many would be on board if the Kings signed Marc Gasol if it meant we could not sign Thorton? I think I know the answer, but would love to hear everyone's opinion if they have one.

Welcome back NBA, I look forward to the season!
