Sacramento is now his 3rd station of his NBA career. Gay is an explosive SF but he is always criticized as a chucker with low FG %.
His previous jersey number was 22, which happened to the same as his new teammate, I. Thomas.With his Sacramento debut coming soon, Rudy Gay changes his jersey number from 22 to 8 and the his jersey is already made.
He said that he was born in August, drafted by an 8th pick and this season is his 8th NBA year .8 is a special number for him. May his new number be his lucky number and grant him faith to brave a new city and its fanbase.
Any predictions about his new life? Would he grow as an indisputable allstar by the next season ?
I think Rudy will return to his career numbers very soon. It's justa matter of time. His confidence was shot coming into this season with all the articles and **** about his low efficiency. He has come to the point where he is almost underrated now, and I think he really has something to prove in Sacramento.
I worry about the fit. It seems like the Kings are just throwing high volume scorer types together with no real plan on how they want to play. How does Gay fit? I could be wrong, but that team just looks super random on paper.
Maybe he will tone it down a little bit out in Sac. Toronto was already his team and he acted like he could just do whatever he wanted on the court. In Sacramento that won't be the case with Cousins around. I don't think it was a bad move for Sacramento. If it works good and if not they have a 19mil expiring next year.
