The Kings Guards
As a former Kings fan (until I moved down the coast over a decade ago & fell in love with the Hawkies : ) ) it really saddens me to see them struggle...
I was chatting with some basketball buddies recently & we all agree, YOU NEED A POINT GUARD to run the show, & Caddee & Thornton are NOT 1 men. Take a look at the other guards around the league & Sydney pales in comparison.
Moving forward I think Caddee could play quite well as a 6th man &/or with a STRONG point guard next season.
So my question... Why oh why are the Kings still playing Thornton? They can't make the playoffs, there's no way he'll be with them next year, so why?. What benefit do the Kings get out of it?
I feel for Coach Joe, pretty tough to run a team missing some big guns & lacking leadership at the point.
