I made an account just to say this: f--- Buddy Hield. I regret drafting this bum at #4 so much. He'll play get out of his slump and play better but it still won't make up for the fact that he's s

They had chemistry last year. Very competitive team. Situation looked promising. Then Luke arrived and wrecked everything. This is damage control for a disaster he created

In what universe would anyone trade Jrue for Buddy? That's a horrible offer

Had some very interesting comments after the game, some pretty blunt shots taken at the coaching staff. The team is frustrated. Something is going to have to give sooner or later if they dont start winning soon. Vlade and Vivek dont exactly strike me as the types to sit on their hands as their team self-destructs. 

 

Damn. He took shots on his teammates as well "everyone getting scored on, so you have to come up with a different excuse for me...everyone is missing shots".

Soooo stoked.   I traded him and Rozier for Derozan and Morant the other day.  There was no way I was gonna stick with him any longer after he threw his teammates and coaches under the bus after he played like absolute garbage.  Horrible fantasy player, and apparently a horrible person too.

 

I'm finally free!!! 🙌✌️

Another game with 5 threes. I’ve honestly started to form my team around his high 3 cat. He’s basically a waste if you’re punt 3 but if you have a few other guys who can get 2.5-2.8 a game you can usually stream a 3s guy to boost it further. Even when he lays duds he usually keeps the threes even if it’s on horrible percentages.

I am currently playing him with Kemba Walker and Jordan Clarkson. No complaint so far.

Guys, how are things looking for Hield outside of getting benched? Would you say he's a shutdown candidate for whatever the ******** reason they can come up with?

 

What? No way.  The kings will fight tooth and nail to make the playoffs. Even if they are mathematically out, I can see them trying to win as many games just to save face (Vlade, Vivek, and Walton). Buddy won't get shut down and the fact that Walton has gone with lineups not including buddy to close a few games is just a matter of over-coaching.  Walton is a horrible coach as we have seen since his awful record as HC since taking over the lakers.  I am too lazy to look it up but I am sure it is well, well below .500.

Is his 41% FG a thing this season? Slump from frustration, or? 

 

Would you say it’ll get better from here on?

His poor fg% is undoubtedly resulting from a much poorer overall Kings offense.  This is due to multiple factors. For one, Coach Walton is having them play at a much slower pace, where Buddy thrived last year in transition getting open looks. Now they are somewhere near last in the league pace. And in the half court, Buddy (and Bogi) have been asked by Walton, presumably, to create shots for themselves and others, where that is clearly not Buddy's strength. Way too many possessions are just buddy dribbling for 10 seconds before taking a contested shot. Think if Klay didn't have Steph, Draymond or KD to create his looks and instead had to get his own threes off the dribble. Now some of that offensive scheme is due to Fox being out for parts of the season, and general lack of playmakers on the Kings, but I put more blame on Walton.  And of course, Buddy has missed some relatively good looks that I think he wishes he could have back but that's just variance. 

tldr, IMO this is about the FG% I expect from Buddy unless Walton is gone or changes his scheme, with a chance for slight increase.

What the hell are you doing, Luke? Taking a sledgehammer to the chemistry and goodwill this core developed last year. 

 

What a joke. As someone with Buddy on his team, I really hope he gets traded. There is clearly bad blood between himself and Luke the clown

Lol what chemistry they’ve lost game after game and Buddy is one of the worst defenders in the nba. This move was a long time coming
