Not necessarily. No he doesn't.

He just needs to put up Brandon Roy-like numbers.

It depends what Cousins does IMO..if he plays like a "rookie" I expect 27-28 out of 'Reke to get in the playoffs..if Cousins has a solid year..who knows..maybe.

Still..teams I would expect to make the playoffs before the Kings:

1. Lakers
2. Mavericks
3. Thunder
4. Denver
5. Suns
6. Jazz
7. Rockets
8. Warriors
9. Hornets
10. Kings

As a Kings fan I could see us being above some of those teams. The Suns bro? They're way too high. Nash and Hill are another year older, nobody to finish around the rim from Nash's passes, nobody to play the pick and roll, no main scorer, Hedo looks rather washed up, I think they're a 40 win team. Head to head the Kings are better than them IMO, our frontcourt dominates theirs. We have 4 guys over 6'10''(Dalembert, Cousins, Thompson, Greene) and the suns don't have anybody upfront besides RObin Lopez.

The Hornets I don't see being better either. Reke and CP 3 are both great players but after them I dont see anyone great on the Hornets. On the Kings I think you guys will see Cousins play pretty well for a rookie and I expect a good year from Jason Thompson. The Rockets might be good but Yao isn't going to play more than 24 MPG for the whole season, and Martin and Brooks aren't very good defensively. That backcourt is going to get exposed IMO. Adelman's a great coach and they have a deep team but I think we can be better than them.

Warriors are a toss up with us. Lee is a good player and a good adition for them, Curry should get better, but some of their players might put up less numbers without the run and gun system from Nelly. They have a good talented team though. But I think we can be just as good as some of those teams and as a Kings fan I'll be kind of mad if we aren't. I think everyone is going to see Tyreke tear up the league this year.
Didn't put much thought into those rankings...just something I came up w/ off the top of my head.

I'm not necessarily saying they will, it just wouldn't shock me.

I expect the Kings to win between 38-45 wins.

Tyreke and Cousins is a sick combo. They have great frontcourt depth, and I really like Paul Westphal.

I think 'Reke needs to bump that 20.1 PPG to 28.1 PPG for the Kings to be in the playoffs. Thats also if Cousins plays like a "rookie" or not.

The Kings do certainly have the potential to be a good team, I just think they're a year away from playoffs.

don't let SacRock here you say that,

Anyway, I also think a yr away. But wouldnt be surprised by a playoff apperance.



Nah. I really like our potential, but I just posted that I thought we were a year away. We definitely have the talent to compete. But I'm thinking more around 35 wins this year, and next year we take another jump.

But I'd be happy to be wrong.
I'm with crzy on this. If I had to predict who'd make the playoffs the Kings wouldn't make it, but I wouldn't be shocked if they did. They improved their interior defense more than any other team in the league, and Cousins is going to be good sooner than most people think he'll be, IMO.

I think so too. He is gonna have his ups and downs this year, but his ups will far outweigh his downs. Like their first two pre season games....1st game dominant, second game took alot of shots missed alot...

If they are healthy, they are in

Big IF..I dont think so, though.

OH, forgot the Spurs, they are a top 4 team in the West if healthy too

Yeah...wow..forgot about the Spurs too. Lol

Oh how the great have fallen...lol

More like how the "good" have fallen. Great teams can win back to back.

WTF?

Dude has to hate himself. There's no other way to describe something like that.

Yeah, that's pretty bad. Who says to themselves "I wanna get a tat on my neck that looks like a flaming rainbow neckbrace."?
