Hey King fans, I decided to redo this first post and would like to apologize for gloating in the previous one, I easily could have made this thread without it. I was just so excited when I woke up and heard the news, I honestly didn't think we'd make any more moves this season. I want to apologize to all the King fans, you guys are some of the classiest fans and did not deserve that one bit. In all honestly, before I made this post, the possibility of losing your team to Seattle did not cross my mind at all and I had forgotten about that situation, I wasn't thinking, there is no way I would have added the passive aggressive tone had I known about the Seattle situation and definitely wouldn't have thrown in all that nonsense about Morey the Wizard. Overall it was insensitive, unnecessary and I was completely in the wrong. I also want you guys to know that despite my gloating, it did not represent the Houston Rocket fans, they're great people, never had issues with any of them at any of the games, no Houston Rocket fan encouraged me to come on your board. It was a d*ck move by me and I'm not proud of it now looking back.
I have nothing against the Kings, I freaking loved that squad back in the day with C-Webb, Christie, Bibby and company. You have a tremendous talent in Cousins, and I honestly think he has Tim Duncan like talent, at least on the offensive end. You're closer to being relevant than you think, you're just a hot mess right now, but a foundation piece is there, in Cousins, and that makes things a little easier. It's like having a bad football team but you just drafted a QB in the first round that has potential to be great...the rest of the pieces eventually fall in place.
Make Tyreke a Sixth Man and he could kill it, get a REAL point guard and it'll do wonders for Cousins.
Gut the team except for Cousins, Tyreke and Patterson and start building around that. Isaiah Thomas could also work a great trading piece since you already have Tyreke.
On to the new additions you got from us:
Patrick Patterson is a nice piece for you. He's a great spot up shooter, can shoot the 3, plays solid D and also a versatile defender that can step out to the perimeter a little. Seems to have a bit of a post game but not sure how good it is since we didn't run many iso plays for him, most of his points came off feeds. However rebounding and setting picks are both weaknesses for him. Cousins can make up for the rebounding and I don't see why they wouldn't be able to play well together. I think PP will eventually start over Jason Thompson. If you get a true PG, it will do wonders for PP and Cousins.
Tony Douglas can play a little, good spot up shooter and plays tough D, but he's also another undersized shooting guard that plays point guard, since you already are loaded with those, I suspect this move was mainly about matching salaries.
Cole Aldrich struggled for us, but maybe he'll be a better use for you, he is a big body with some mobility.
Sacramento is not only a great city, but also a great city for a basketball team, I really do hope the Kings end up staying, your team has a lot of great history and as I said already, some of the classiest fans. Minus the gloating, the original intent was to get an input on T-Robb from King fans and find out what went wrong with him in Sacramento and hopefully that is done now but with more respect. As a Rocket fan, we too have been dealt with some crappy hands of our own not too long ago, with the career ending injuries to both T-Mac and Yao in their prime. I'll definitely be rooting for your team to stay.
