01:59 AM ET 03.14 | As it seems all we can do is look forward to next season, yet another that we may not contend for the post-season. It might seem as though Artest can will walk out the door, and lucrative contracts will remain into next season. The biggest question is that of Beno Udrih. Is Geoff Petrie prepared to offer him a mid-level contract which most die-hard Kings fans believe he deserves? Or will Petrie venture into a different direction drafting a rookie point guard that can develop into the Point Guard of who some may think is one the the NBA's best tactical offense's? I for one have been won over by the tiny-handed floor general who seems to fit perfectly into the Reggie Theus' system. The bigger problem is the result of some blockbuster trades or free-agent 'busts' as we may call them. Guys like Kenny Thomas (locked up into 2010) acquired in the Webber deal, Miller locked up for two more seasons acquired in the Turkoglu trade and best of all Shareef Abdur-Rahim who signed a large contract at the tender age of 30 and locked up until he is 35. Is there some way that there will be takers of at least one of these giant contracts to free up some much needed cap room? Although some of us are becoming, or have become very nostalgic of the years of Adelman and the heralded Princeton offense, those days will never be back. For now, we must look into the future of who can possibly become the true successor of the Kings offense.
