That game tonight wow... On top of that outside of ben simmons this dude looks like the steal of the draft on what was expected to be a **** draft after the first 2 guys... is buddy hield an all star and what is his ceiling?

So far he is putting up 20/5 on 48/45/86 shooting which is insane for anyone not named curry in terms of shooting and his shooting isnt that far off from what curry is shooting. He is nowhere near curry of course in general but this dude just can flat out shoot.


here is his highlights

After Vlade Divac surprisingly traded DeMarcus Cousins on Feb. 20, 2017, the Kings general manager famously delivered a prediction.

I believe we are going to be in a better position in two years, Divac said. I want to hear again from these same people in two years. If Im right, great. If Im wrong, Ill step down. But if I go down, Im going down my way.

Lets think about this for 1 second... Look at the teams outside the sixers that either tanked or were suppose to have insane young cores.... Right now the nets/kings who couldnt tank and looked like they were screwed have a better record than the knicks/wolves and if you take away lebron the lakers and their young core wouldnt be as good as the kings are right now. I am a big fan of tanking because of everyone wanting to be part of a super team but maybe the nets/kings are ******** on that notion. 1 thing is for damn sure these 2 franchises deserve a **** ton of credit... DLO/Dimwiddie and hield/fox look like amazing young pieces.

I also remember saying the trade for griffin for the pistons was horrible and idiotic. if they continue a few more games I'm making a thread calling everyone out because the clippers are now far better off getting harris bradley and picks for griffin and the pistons are going to continue to flounder.

i was on the boat for saying vlade deserved to be fired for the **** he got for cousins. Man talk about egg on the face for us couch GMs... Not sure I remember my take on blake though... I was 10000 percent wrong about vlad.

I thought the trade was fine. Given that they valued Hield they essentially got 2 firsts. Of course, I also think Cousins is overrated apart from his stint in NOLA.

I was a fan of the trade from the kings perspective. I also thought Buddy was the best player in the draft and dont like Cousins at all

Could Hield be an All Star going forward? Yeah he can but only if he continues with these solid performances from here on out

He's also a 4yr college player. Those guys are never supposed to be good. If you don't leave after year 1 you're trash right? Because there is no possible way to have "potential" after 4yrs of college basketball. And potential is all that matters in the draft. Right?

Kings are playing good basketball too so can they be a playoff team? The potential is there

After flipping NOs (10 pick) to POR for their (14th & 20th)

Percentages almost up there with Brogdon at 51.3%fg/42%3pt/.946ft. Edges Brogdon on 3pt%.

Hilarious how Vlade was just getting absolutely killed by everyone for that trade. The Kings knew Boogie was crap and just a stat stuffing, lazy, non-winning player. It's not a surprise that by removing Boogie they've instantly become a better team.

More evidence that teams and fans give up on players way too quickly.

Eh the Kings did something right. They look like they are going to be a problem for years to come.

To be fair Vlade earned criticism ... Georgios Papagiannis. He also effectively traded Tatum for De'Aaron Fox, and has signed a bunch of questionable vets to questionable contracts. But he has done something a lot of GMs fail to do and that is be patient with youth.

They have different roles and are 2 different players. Not sure why this was brought up.

i also think its far more impressive to shoot 48/46 while shooting 5 more shots per game and twice as many 3s per game lolol

Don't think he'll ever be an all star but he's probably a guy who'll last long in the league. Like JJ Reddick.

I can see AS. Well I suppose it will he tough in the west but I think he will be a star caliber player at the minimum for his career.

Is Tatum sure fire better than Tatum at this point? And I don't mind the questionable vet signings because who are they gonna sign anyway?

No matter what, I just think it's funny how he was such an idiot a year and a half ago for that trade and it really looks good now.

They might have that other star on their roster already if Bagley keeps improving.

He'd still be really good even if not all star.

If Hield were in the East he would definitely be an All Star

I liked Hield coming out of the draft. Glad he's succeeding
