Kings must develop inside presence
And why not.
The all-star shooting guard is a legitimate MVP candidate this season. He is the third-highest scorer in the league at 25.3 points per game. He is the best free-throw shooter in the league at 92.3 percent. He is the best 3-point shooter in the league with 151 triples while shooting 43.1 percent. He's also shooting 48 percent from the field to go along with a career-high 6.2 rebounds per game and career-high 1.4 steals.
And to top it all off, the Kings have the best record in the league at 38-14.
That's the good news. And there's lots of it.
But here's the bad news glossed over by all of the former.
