Speaking of Kosta Koufos

Last night Kosta Koufos turned twenty-two minutes of play into 10 points, seven boards, and 4 assists. Like water to wine…

But seriously, this guy is a rock. I love his style of play. He’s the lumbering epitome of everything the organization has lacked since the mid 2000s—consistency, durability, and high basketball IQ.

Props to Vlade Divac; this may turn out to be the Kings best free-agent signing in recent memory.  Hopefully Koufos’ willingness to start or play off the bench will be infectious, maybe even translating into more wins.

On a side note: I love that he’s rocking that lil’ sky-hook. This guy is a superstar.
