Sacramento Kings Preview

Bibby is out for 6-8 weeks, but don’t worry about it Sacramento fans because you weren’t making the playoffs anyways. In fact, Bibby being out is a good thing for Kevin Martin. Miller has lost 25 pounds, but he’ll never put up the numbers he used to without Rick Adleman.

Projected starting lineup with last year’s stats:
Stats follow this format – Points, Rebounds, Assists, Steals, Blocks, FG percentage & Minutes

PG – Mike Bibby
17.1 – 3.2 – 4.7 – 1.07 – 0.07 – 40% – 34 min

SG – Kevin Martin
20.2 – 4.3 – 2.2 – 1.23 – 0.14 – 47% – 35 min

SF – Ron Artest
18.8 – 6.5 – 3.4 – 2.13 – 0.61 – 44% – 37 min

PF – Kenny Thomas
5.3 – 6.1 – 1.2 – 0.69 – 0.26 – 48% – 23 min

C – Brad Miller
9 – 6.4 – 3.6 – 0.60 – 0.62 – 45% – 28 min

Key Bench Players

John Salmons
Quincy Douby
Fransisco Garcia
Shareef Abdur-Rahim
Mikki Moore

Reggie Theus has implemented an uptempo offense, so everyone’s stats should rise by default. This is the year Kevin Martin makes this his team. Outside of Kevin Martin, Ron Artest and Mike Bibby (once he comes back) are the only players worth owning as the others will be sharing time with their bench players. Some like Brad Miller for a bounce back year, but I do not. They drafted Spencer Hawes for a reason, and he’ll be healthy soon.
