Petrie is Our Lord

$29M over 5 years. For Shareef Abdur-Rahim. Yes, that Shareef Abdur-Rahim.

Marcos Breton has a surprisingly good column today about team doctors and SAR and the genius of Petrie. In short, if SAR sucks, NJ wins. If SAR is healthy, the Kings win. If SAR is great and helps the team do something special, Petrie is God.

Yet, there are STILL fans whining that KT will likely be on the squad instead of Darius, that our defense lacks, that our bench sucks compared to the glory days.

KT is now even more overpriced as a sixth man, we all agree on that. But damn, that's a helluva sixth man. He'll get somewhere near 20 minutes a game if you figure he'll get some time at both PF and SF as minutes permit. He could give you 10-12 points in those minutes given he's the second or third option on the floor.

Bench play is a major factor in the postseason, and ours just got a lot better.

The Sacramento Kings are a tough act to follow, literally.

SKB does the dirty work so you can forget about the blood, sweat and tears.

Oh, you'll still need the tears in April, though.
