Adding Rudy to the current Kings roster while extracting Vasquez, their only pass first player, leads me to wonder if the Kings' GM was fleeced by Ujiri.
He also spent far too freely. By no means did I dislike all his moves and I'm definitely exaggerating a bit now (isn't that what the internet's for?), but one very regular criticism was that almost every contract he handed out was overpriced. Add that up over a few seasons and you have a low-ceiling, capped out treadmill roster. Next to a completely dysfunctional franchise (ex. Bobcats), it's about as bad a situation as an NBA team can be in.
there was a backhanded comment in their to the effect of increasing talent rather than diminishing talent...
And nobody said Rudy Gay wasn't talented...he is most certainly not 19.3 million dollar cap killing talent.
"NBA East on Track to Be History's Worst Conference Ever" (Dec. 3rd) http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1...onference-ever
As of right now the East is 32-70 against the West. Miami and Indiana are a combined 10-2 against the West. That means the remaining 13 Eastern teams are 22-68 against the West. Looking for adjectives to describe the awfulness? "Historically bad" about sums it up.

But I also always thought it was a little strange to subtract the top two teams records. Obviously the point is the show that the eastern conference has an a league (of 2 teams) and a b league.
But I think, it's more fair to also subtract the top two teams in the West from that record. Its more like 22-54. But that's still bad.
wait, so the guy who acquired lowry - a good PG, on a good deal, but also someone almost universally regarded as mercurial (to put it kindly) - is talking about chemistry & 'character?'
dear bryan: sit the fuck down. when someone's interested in your opinion re. basketball, it will come in the form of a job offer. until then, STFU about things you clearly know little about, m'kay?
TRUE LOVE - Sometimes you know it the instant you see it across the bar.
For the rest, the wasn't great, but he tried to win, made some gambles, won a few lost a few. A very good portion of Fan based criticism of colangelo is pretty weak at best, most of the shit I read is nonsense really.
Anyhow, water under the bridge, I wish the fellow well.
-Isn't better offensively than DeMar
-Doesn't do enough other things well enough to warrant paying him double what DeMar makes
-Redundancy makes it hard to see chemistry working out
-Lazy character at times, coasts and is inconsistent
-Coasting means some games he never shows up on D
-A chucker who's average (at best) at involving teammates
-Screws team flexibility for basically no good reason...nothing that pushes the team higher
-The only thing I liked about Gay pre-trade was the size/athleticism he brings to SF.
-And in the honeymoon period his effort was more consistent on D, and he seemed to be having a good impact as a leader. Both those things completely disappeared this season.
