Double K’s Take: What to expect from the 2014-15 Sacramento Kings


                                                                                                Taking a look at the Kings roster I like a lot of what im seeing. Unfortunately the Kings play in the Western Conference so playoff hopes are really not in the cards for the Purple and Black this season….this season. That doesn’t mean that they won’t be able to get in line to in the coming years depending on what they do in the draft and in free agency. But I can guarantee this; this roster will be fun to watch and might even spoil some team’s fun down the stretch of the season. These are some of the key players in that expected success…


1.       PG Ramon Sessions (7yr vet, SAC,MIL,CLE,CHA,LAL, 2014: 5.5 PPG, 1.1 RPG, 1.6APG): Sessions may not be a starter, but he is a spark plug off the bench and a stabilizing force at a position that the Kings desperately needed. I think that Sessions can provide that in limited minuets off of the bench. He has played for 5 different teams in his 8 year career but I think he might have finally found a place where he can really make a difference…



2.       SF Rudy Gay (8yr vet, SAC,MEM,TOR, 2014: 22 PPG, 6.6 RPG, 3.6APG): Gay is a very important piece to the potential for the Kings success. Gay came to the team via trade and could have decided to leave after the season that the Kings had last year. But instead he bought in and accepted his player option for this year and signed a 3 year extension recently. This is the type of loyalty that this franchise needs and maybe he can help lift them from the ashes of mediocrity…



3.       C DeMarcus Cousins (4yr vet, SAC, 2014: 23 PPG, 11.8 RPG, 1.4 BPG): As the only original member of the Sac Town Big 3, Cousins had been considered a disappointment to most of the fan base because he couldn’t seem to get along with anyone on or off the court. But those days seem to be behind him and Cousins is playing like a new man. Averaging 20+ PPG and 10+ RPG make Cousins one of the top centers in the game today. Will that translate into the playoffs we will have to see…

                                                                                               With the emergence of these three the Kings should be a force in the Western Conference for the next couple of years. They have a head coach that is able to get it done and can mold these young minds into possibly the best trio that the KIings have put on the court in recent memory…
