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

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

Yeah, chemistry looked good last season. Expectations were high this season. Then their play style completely changed. With Fox as their PG, they should not be ranked 28th in pace. Luke should've made adjustments for that. Don't like his passive aggressive comments towards his team in the media either.

Also, it doesn't help that they've yet to have a consistent group of guys healthy for them, so we can't put all the blame on the coach, but he could probably do better than their record.

Didnt watch the game. Put up a solid line but only got 23 minutes- anything to worry about here? 

 

Yes, absolutely a worry. Strong shooting propped up his value this game but if he's playing 27ish minutes while coming off the bench, that is about 75% of his season average; so I expect he has about 75% of his previous value for the remainder of the season. Not great. 

The Kings are so bad that I do not think there is a usage boost due to coming off the bench either.

Some players do play better off the bench. Buddy used to be that kind of a player. Now it could be different though as he has used to being a starter and has somewhat inflated ego.

Hmm....maybe coming off the bench is better for Hield

Ima telling ya all this. He used to be the BEST with Lou Will back in the day... It is in his BLOOD for sure, coming off the bench and bombing away.

Roto Blurb for Buddy tonight:

Only one other player in the last 20 years has scored 20 points or more on perfect shooting from the field in the fourth quarter of a comeback win after his team trailed by 25 points.

When you want to make the news more interesting.

On a side note, it's really impressive that writers are able to find these super random bits of information.

No. Owned him 2 years ago he sucks off bench and is way better statistically as a starter.
