*Sigh of relief* We are 3 games into the season, we are long overdue for an injury. We all knew someone had to get injured atleast it wasn't someone who was playing well ie Kevin Martin.
Honestly, since the kings are not running the high post offense much, Brad Miller isn't worth a lot to the Kings. True, he is a big body who grabs the occasional rebound and sticks, or atleast tries, to stick with other teams bigs; however, he isn't the same bruiser who stepped up to Shaq a few years ago.
Whats the difference between SAR and Bmill starting?
Statiscally, they aren't that different. Of course, BM52's got a few inches and some weight, but its not like he uses those extra inches to post up, block shots, or get a lot of rebounds.
This does mean that kenny thomas will be expected to amp up his rebounding to close to 10. Artest is doing great on the boards, but i expect him to slip to 7-8 rpg during this week.
Will this exposure of the King's lack of depth/talent downlow spur the GM/owners to trade for a big time big man ala Kenyon Martin? Randolph? Boozer? Jerome James?
