I hope so much that I'm wrong.
I'm sorry, I'm not buying this. You don't put up his numbers year after year and not "bring it", "compete", or whatever you want to call it. Not only that, but he has notoriously played through injury and done everything he can to stay in the lineup. He is known for having an above average defensive game. For god's sake, not every player on the Kings needs to be a checking grinder. That's what got us into this mess.
