Am I The Only One High on Gorgui Dieng?

First off let me introduce myself. My name is Phil and i have been a crazily passionate Kings fan since Jason Williams. He was my favorite player as i was only in 5th grade at the time, but i grew to love the Kings and being the loyal fan that i am I have stuck and my blood has bled darker purple and black each year since. I've religiously followed the relocation situation as everyone else has here and finally decided to make an account rather than just read the stuff posted lol

Anyway, now that we know that we are here for good, we need to build for the future. To me that starts with solidifying the front office and coaching, something that will greatly benefit our talented but troubled roster. Cousins is our franchise player (to the dismay of some but not myself) Yes he has his issues and outbursts but the good outweighs the bad with him moving forward and a good coach will get the most out of him as will a winning atmosphere. I think we can all agree (well hopefully most of us) that Big Cuz is most effective with a big that can rebound, block shots and work hard on defense, basically do all the things that Cousins doesn't do consistently enough. When Samuel Dalembert was here Cousins was just a rook and when he finally put it together towards the end of the year our front line was a huge issue (literally) for people. As much as i would like to sign Dalembert, he's old and we need someone to put as a frontcourt mate for Demarcus long term sooner rather than later.

Enter Gorgui Diengs. His game reminds me of everything that Sammy D does/did in his NBA career. He protects the paint with ridiculous length along with great athleticism for his size and height and anchored the best defense in the nation as well as the defense of the national champions. He hit mid range jumpers at a 50% clip his final year and can pass pretty well from the high post. Zeller would be great if we didn't have a guy who can and will be better than him in Cousins but we need a guy to play defense and get his hands dirty which is what Dieng brings to the table. Enough of my talk, what do you guys think?
