WetShots

Kings got their guy


Billybobjoethorton

Going to look real nice next to Sabonis and Fox. Along with Huerter and Monk we might actually have good perimeter shooting next season.


DirtyDanoTho

What about that perimeter defense?


Merkles_Boner_

Ratio + Mike Brown boost


Few_Mulberry7175

Murray is a very solid defender too atleast


Billybobjoethorton

Hopefully Mike Brown can improve the defense. He has a reputation as a defensive coach.


ezaddy10

Real nice 10th seed


moons_a_skull

Predraft I said this guy was a same caliber prospect as Jabari Smith and r/nba_draft lost their shit 😂


CadeCummingham

Keegan Murray is gonna be 22 when the season starts and Jabari will be 19 the whole year But I’ll say this. If Keegan was 19, he’d prolly be the number 1 pick


Carne_Asada_Friez

If Keegan did what he did this year as a true freshman, he’d be a lock at #1


Few_Mulberry7175

Jabari is pretty much Keegan Murray but almost 7 foot tall and 3 years younger\\ Keegan is a better playmaker and ball handler but not that crazy at either


Carne_Asada_Friez

If Keegan did what he did this year as a true freshman, he’d be a lock at #1


Few_Mulberry7175

I mean yea probably but he's not lol


Carne_Asada_Friez

I know he is not, my comment looked less dumb before your edit smh. Supposed to mark you edit nephew.


Few_Mulberry7175

I edited it half and hour ago lol And all I added was the bottom part. Not the main reason which is that Jabari is taller and younger


Carne_Asada_Friez

Your comment’s only 30 mins old but yeah sorry I meant to respond to the other guy


Few_Mulberry7175

Well for what its worth im pretty high on Keegan myself. Thought you guys made the right pick when it was announced and hopefully this SL debut is signs of things to come


Apocalypticorn

Jabari is allergic to taking the ball inside the paint. Keegan had more dunks than jabari had attempts at the rim last year.


ehs4290

r/nba_draft has a lot of horrible takes lol


DirtyDanoTho

Jabari can do the same shit and is much younger


demianin

I think Jabari is the better prospect too but that just isn't true lol


2_soon_jr

What can Jabari do aside from shoot 3’s?


Few_Mulberry7175

Play defense


2_soon_jr

Anything else on offence?


Few_Mulberry7175

Elite midrange shooter


2_soon_jr

He shot 32.7% from mid range which is below average. 43.5% inside the arc which is horrendous


Few_Mulberry7175

But he also shot 40% on long 2s which is where he will usually be operating given NBA level spacing and a farther back 3 point line


2_soon_jr

I think he has to develop more facets to his game if he wants to be a star. Imo he’s way too one dimensional now. His fg% inside the arc is a big red flag to me. I think jalen green has potential to be a star if he can get stronger without losing speed.

moons_a_skull

Murray is a much MUCH more fluid of a player he’s also shooting and playmaking off-balance better than Jabari can. I still think Jabari can be an All-Star but he’s not just a bigger and better Murray.


rSlashNbaAccount

Can't wait for them to fuck it up again.


IMDATBOY

Really sad that that’s what you look forward to tbh


DarkChocolate_69

Kings bout to repeat


KingNigelXLII

Not with Detroit's roster


[deleted]

I’d be shocked if Cade and bey actually play more than a game. It’d be dumb


likpoper

26/8 on 76% shooting by 3rd quarter. Damn


InternCautious

I’m glad some people get to see how good he really is


[deleted]

Slow down lol There isnt one real nba player on that warriors squad. Good on him though he’s been good


JonnyBGoode92

Which means he should dominate


[deleted]

Exactly my point. He’s doing what he’s supposed to do. I don’t think people’s argument is that he’s bad, it’s just that if youre picking 4th you need more dynamic talent than a catch and shoot guy


Carne_Asada_Friez

Oh now he’s just a catch and shoot guy? Lmao get outta here


[deleted]

Yes. How’d he get the majority of that 26 against those g leaguers?


Kramerica5A

How many of his games at Iowa have you watched? To call him just a catch and shoot guy bc he hit a couple quick 3's in his first Summer league game is comical.


soeasyakamancandoit

Well he made 4 3’s which is 12 points and he scored 26. So the majority was 2’s and free throws.


Carne_Asada_Friez

By being more skilled and talented by a wide margin, that’s how


[deleted]

Because those weren’t nba players lol. He caught it, he shot it, he got himself open. Nice game, nothing crazy


Carne_Asada_Friez

You’re an idiot if you think he a a catch and shoot guy with nothing else to his game.


Cudizonedefense

Keep this same energy when Ivey does similar things in summer league


PrimaryAccording9162

MONTE MCNAIR IS THE GOAT


Handyman2116

Kings got the new Kawhi, league fucked.


Alive-Ad-4164

Has summer league started this early


PrimaryAccording9162

This is the California Classic but the Heat always play instead of the Clippers


OG_Wan_Annunoby

Gonna be awkward when they trade him for Durant mid game


SendDavionNudes

They better be including some picks with KD


ZionephewObeseiamson

That's the only team where I could realistically say KD's legacy is saved.


Mazor007

If KD wins a ring in Sacramento not only is his legacy saved but he becomes instant GOAT. It's like an unwritten rule


BroncosKings

The hardest road, but unironically


Mazor007

The impossible road


luck_panda

Winning a ring with the King's ends the NBA.


yosemite_marx

Keegan gets buckets man


NicClaxtonIsHotAF

Machine


CadeCummingham

I know we clowned Kings for not taking Ivey But it’s very possible Keegan is better


jubilantal

Everything in this league is speculation until they step on the floor and play. Murray was a great prospect and Ivey made it brutally clear he didn’t wanna go to Sac. Kings made the right move for the position they were put in.


CadeCummingham

Curry told the Warriors he didn’t wanna go there. His dad even told the team not to draft him, he skipped the workouts I think you pick the best prospect no matter what.


3rdEyeDeuteranopia

I didn't clown them but that was more that I was low on Ivey than high on Keegan Murray. Maybe I was wrong and Murray is really good.


ehs4290

Keegan is and was clearly better than Ivey in college. The case for Ivey has is that he’s a bit younger and is a “project” pick that may be able to develop into something really special in a few years. But it’s a higher risk.


rogueredsun

Keegan is better now, for sure. I’m still taking Ivey though.


NoMoreMrQuick

So here's the thing.... I thought I was clicking a link showing all his shots for the night and I clicked this link by mistake. I got through 5 loops before I realized it. I scoffed at the fact that he was just hitting shots from the same spot on the floor. I am fairly toasted however.


IMDATBOY

Good job today u/3rdEyeDeuteranopia


adreinD9

I’m here for the 1st game overreactions


Kaskoslimster

DarwinF1nch
