The Sacramento Kings are 12-25 this season, and that record still overstates how good they are. The Kings are dead last in the NBA offensive rating (100.2 points scored per 100 possessions) and defensive rating (117.2 per 100). Sacramento has the point differential of a team that should be 8-29, according to Cleaning the Glass. Even though this was expected to be a developmental season for the Kings and their young core, the franchise brought in veterans — George Hill, Zach Randolph, Garrett Temple — to keep things from being an outright tank job, and to mentor the young players. It hasn’t worked that way, and frustration is mounting. Here is what Temple said after the Kings blowout loss to the Hornets at home Tuesday, via James Ham of NBC Sports Bay Area.
