To add to your post a bit for folks to already have some preconceived scenarios with Rudy is just unfair. I've always at least given people a chance to prove themselves. He didn't have a player close to Demarcus' caliber in Toronto. In Memphis he did with Randolph and Gasol and guess what, he shot 45% or something close. Which is a huge upgrade from our previous SF. His rebounding and defense has never been an issue.

@TABDOG Jimmer isn't the answer yet. He is as much the answer as Thorton. I was at the game and the only difference is Jimmer has a great shot and is a natural at shooting. But he has zero handles under pressure. Just look at Hayward from the Jazz. Not a single kings player was able to stop his handle. If Jimmer ever gets confidence in his handle I would agree 100% with you. But as of now because of his lack of handle with pressure in his face Thorton will get Jimmers minutes. With Jimmers shotmaking ability if he ever gets confidence in his handle he will take all of Thortons minutes.

@TABDOG. would choke be better? Jimmer excelled against college players but so far cringes, cowers and hyperventilates anytime a defender gets in his grill. Can he even make a pass without leaving his feet? How many passes do we need to see with Jimmer leaving his feet early and turning the ball over? Thornton is Petries trash and hopefully gets dumped ASAP. Trust me if Jimmer wasn't afraid of his own shadow he'd be in the rotation because he earned not by default.
Lol @fool coming from you:D

Wipe ur chin boy u spilled that haterade all over ur face!!
This is merely a trial run with Rudy. We added 3mil this season while upgrading the roster and infusing the team with energy and excitement. If he doesn't fit then so be it. We are on the hook if he chooses to opt in next year for 19mil(?) and that hurts but:
1) Rudy fits in and molds his game to fit with Demarcus/Thomas/Mac/Williams. Kings hit national television by storm bringing attention to our much needed developing program. The city shows up night after night to see the human highlight reel squad. Kings spend the remainder of the season learning how to win.
2) Rudy ends up being all of the bad things many criticize him for. Kings morale drops due to shot Bogarting and we lose the rest of the year. Kings get a high draft pick and get a young stud in next years draft. Kings end up stuck with Rudy and his mega contract next year. GM dishes him off to a team needing expiring contracts and we dump 19mil and end up with another high draft pick.
So regardless its a win win. If it succeeds we take the NBA by storm. If it fails we end up with more losing seasons and high draft picks. The future is finally looking up for this franchise. Regardless of whether Rudy is here to see it or not.
Rotflmao!!!!! Someone take the microphone from this clown!! Jimmer can shoot but the kid has a complex. Anyone who's athletic gets into his chest and the kid buckles. At best he's a good supporting cast. That's his ceiling! Got it? Write it down take a picture but remember that!!!
Your posting privileges should be instantly revoked for saying "Free Jimmer" that has to be the stupidest comment anyone trying to sound intelligent has ever said in the history of dummies trying to sound intelligent!!!
"Free Jimmer" INSTANT CLASSIC!!!!!
I love people who use others words to make their point. I think a Rudy Gay could take a dump and slap a jersey on it and it would still be better than Salmons. Listening to a thing the raptors bloggers have to say is pathetic. This is BBall not hockey.
