SB Nation Reacts: Confidence in the Kings is dwindling

A losing streak combined with some injuries means belief is at a low point.

Welcome to SB Nation Reacts, a survey of fans across the NBA. Each week, we send out questions to the most plugged in Sacramento Kings fans, and fans across the country. Sign up here to join Reacts.

According to the most recent SB Nation Reacts survey, 23 percent of Kings fans are confident the team is headed in the right direction. These answers were collected before Sacramento beat Detroit Friday, but that’s still down from 60 percent last week and 88 percent two weeks ago.

One aspect of play that can make or break any team is the ability to get to the foul line while preventing the opposition from doing the same. The Kings are a middle of the pack team when it comes to free-throw rate, and there have been points in the season when De’Aaron Fox has complained that he doesn’t earn the same foul calls as other star guards. Drawing a foul has become a key tool in many players game’s.

That tool, according to fans around the country, is a true skill in today’s NBA.

While fans may appreciate a player’s ability to draw contact and get a whistle, that doesn’t mean they like seeing it happen.

According to the same survey, nearly every fan polled said they would like to see the NBA regulate soft-contact fouls out of the game.

If you want to see more Kings content included in SB Nation Reacts each week, we need Kings fans to jump into the fray. You can not only give your input on the NBA at large, but weigh in on how you think this team is doing each week.
