    I suppose all rookies need to come into the league and put up all-star or starter type stats. It's too early to say what kind of player he will end up. He can drive to the hoop and pass the ball. He was known as a defender in college but it hasn't translated to the pros yet. He is adjusting to the speed of the game and the physicality. I believe he will put on more weight so he can bang because his defensive instincts are there. There is no reason he shouldn't become a good defender because he has the tools do so IMO.

    I think an even more important day is this Thursday (I believe), is when the coin flips are done to break the Draft slotting ties.

    If things hold steady, we will be tied with Dallas for the 8 and 9 spot.

    It would be huge for the Kings to win the coin flip and get the 8th spot, giving us a 2 spot cushion come lotto time!

    Its just the results of the lottery simulated using current odds.

    In this instance we won the first pick and the 76ers won the 2nd. Then we had to swap places of course.So if this were to actually play out, we would end up with the 2nd and 10th picks. Basicaly our best case scenario.

    Mavs just won. If the Kings dont FUBAR this and win they get 8th slot. It they had lost to the Mavs last week they would be tied 5-8 and the Mavs would have been ahead of the Pels assuming they lose tonight.

    Yeah, I really hope we lose this one tonight. I'd never suggest tanking even a game ago, but you just have to lose this one tonight.
