This team has me depressed just like everyone else. This team makes me want my old Kings back, you know the golden age of Sac basketball in the early 2000's. This got me thinking to what current players in the NBA could be a similar combination to those teams I fell in love with so long ago. What I am going to do is try and construct a roster with current NBA players that would have the same skill set, enthusiasm, ball movement and shooting of those Kings teams. I am going to try to do this without using obvious superstars and build a team that could actually be assembled today, not really :)
The roster I'm going to use is the 2002-2003 Kings squad, so here we go.....
Doug Christie--Nic Batum (Defense minded player that is a great passer, athletic and can shoot the deep ball)
Peja Stojakovic-- Kyle Korver (Best shooter on the planet, my SG/SF on my current team are switched)
Vlade Divac-- Anderson Varejao ( A center that is a great passer, great flopper, and can stretch the floor)
Hedo Turkoglu--Hedo Turkoglu ( It just makes sense)
Scott Pollard--Joel Pryzbilla (tough big man that rebounds and protects the hoop)
Keon Clark-- Deandre Jordan (freak of nature athleticism)
So that's my current version, what's yours?
