I for the life of me can't understand how any coach or organisation can think a starting line up of Evans, Cousins, James Johnson, Thomas and JT can ever work
. You have 4 guys who can't play without the ball in there hands and other than JT have no idea how to move without the ball. On top of that other than Isiaih you have 4 below avg shooters which masscars floor spacing.
What this results in:
.The most piss weak half court offense in the NBA
.Evans and Cousins iso plays are completely useless every team just clogs the paint resulting in terrible shots (Cousins 40% from the field, terrible) and offensive fouls (Evans has picked up plenty) when your teams 2 best players have played 3 good games combined thats a worry.
.Other than Cousins the whole team defensive rebounding completely sucks
.Opposing PG's just have career nights on the regular against the kings
The Possible Solution
(assuming no trades)
.START MARUCS THORNTON
hes the only good shooter whose athletic and is the one of the best at moving without the ball in the NBA which will provide floor spacing and better movement
.Move Tyreke (to play the James Harden OKC role) and JT (best shooting kings big) to the bench this will allow for Tyreke to dominate the ball and you can surrond him with the likes of Jimmer, Brooks, Garcia and JT to spread the floor which will ethier mean a open lane or open shots
.Start Chuck Hayes you than have your 2 best big passers and your defence just gets much better and another guy who can play without the ball.
What this will result in is you will have floor spacers on both units as well as allowing Tyreke to play his natural game and have far better chemistry. If the season keeps going the way it is than Keith won't be looking Smart anytime soon.
