 Some interesting stats about the Sacramento Kings four player trade that included Rudy Gay:
Using the 7th of December as the dividing line(the trade)

As of that date the team had a 5-13 record
There were 11 loses under 10 points.
About 5 or so under five.

AFTER THE TRADE:

A 5-9 recordThree loses under 10 points.
Zero under five.

The losing margins after the trade are huge, almost double, don't know exactly what that means but here is a question :

Is this team better now?

Fantasy playing folks, please don't tell me that Isaiah Thomas and DeMarcus Cousins are plying like all-stars, please, in the NBA only winning and losing counts and progress is measured on how a team competes not on how many times they appear on ESPN's top 10.

If there are some NASCAR fans reading this post you would understand what I'm talking about. One can tell when a team is going to start winning because they run well week in and week out.

This Sacramento kings were COMPETING before the trade, they were fighting every night, the post-trade team is not, the double figure loses tell the story.

Was this a bad trade for the King? Time will tell, but so far it doesn't look good.

There is one team celebrating that someone took their money dump (Rudy Gay) and got back an instant contributing bench that helped them go into an 8-2 run and beat teams like, oh! I don't know, like the Thunder, Pacers, Mavericks.

Just in case you don't know that was the Toronto Raptors. Here is a  quote from a good friend of mine "Kings got played" 

Enough said.
