Western Conference preview 

Post#1 » by Sactowndog » Thu Sep 5, 2019 4:55 am

Danny Leroux and his analytics idiots are apparently very down on the Kings. if you bother to listen they have no intelligent analysis of the Kings organization. It's a good one to bookmark and comment on at the end of the year.

No comment on the spacing Dedmon will provide and how it frees up Bagley down low
No comment on the effect of Joseph allowing Bogi to play off the ball

Their only comment was wondering if WCS moved to the Warriors would he develop more.

The group reminds me of a bunch of ugly guys commenting on female appearances. I have rarely heard such an unbalanced crappy analysis then Danny Leroux's analysis last year which picked the Kings to be under their win number last year. One of the dumbest commentators in all of basketball.

If that is the case, just another person that pretends to know all 30 teams.

We should be used to this sort of thing by now.

Amick is the only person that covers league wide stuff I take seriously.

Never liked him. Not even for kings stuff, just in general never thought he was some special basketball mind or anything.

I still stick with 42-45 wins, and the depth will protect us from people playing hurt which happened quite a bit last year with Fox especially. Not having WCS is worth 5 wins alone..

One thing we tend to forget that WCS was pretty damn good for the first month or so of last season. He gave us that boost that the Kings needed in a lot of the early games. I wonder if the Kings can replicate or surpass his production in other areas of the game. We also caught a lot of teams off guard with our pace and our general scoring velocity. After a year worth of data, teams will be better prepared against the Kings. How well the Kings adapt to better prepared teams? That is why I said earlier that I wouldn't be surprised if the Kings underperformed. We gotta bank on several players continued improvement i.e. Bagley, Fox, Bogdan, Buddy, etc. Also, we really need to have most, if not, all of our FA players to play well for us too. I haven't talked about Walton but we really need him to work for us too.
