Moore a Solid Pick-Up for Kings
July 16, 2007
This guy is great! I have to admit I’m a huge Mikki Moore fan. After writing about him possibly going to this team and that team, this guy has decided to settle in Sacramento. You know, you always think contenders are going to pick up these type of guys, but you can never rule out the hot cities or big city markets. That’s why any team from New York, Florida or California will always have a chance at ANY player available. They have a serious advantage over all the other teams. Back to Moore, last season he proved that he can play a consistent role at power forward. By joining the Kings, he can fill that starter role, and give the team a more consistent look up front (inconsistent=Brad Miller and Shareef Abdur-Rahim). These three guys will have a great rotation and with all the injuries, the team will have a little more security. With a great backcourt in Kevin Martin and Mike Bibby(?), the Kings will have a great starting five (plus Artest). Will these guys contend? No. There’s no real chance to see them back in the playoffs, unless they can develop an incredible team dynamic, which doesn’t seem so likely with Artest on board. Do they have potential? Definitely. Kevin Martin is so talented and explosive, that if they can keep him and Bibby and get some more guys, then yes, these guys have a future. But don’t expect ABC to be showing these guys on Sundays.
