I’m looking at Buddy Hield’s basketball-reference page and I’m seeing that he’s started all 8 games this season after barely starting that many all of last season. It seems clear to me that Buddy should have been the starter last year as well, but I’m struggling to remember who was starting in his place at SG. That particular iteration of the Kings wasn’t much fun outside of the Bogdan/WCS lob connection, so I’ll probably be sitting here for a few minutes trying to come up with who it was that was unfairly occupying Buddy’s rightful starting job.
Was it Garrett Temple? I’m going with Garrett Temple. Final answer. No lifelines. Let’s go check the 2017-18 Kings roster and see if I was right.
Wow, I’m a dumbass. It was Bogdan Bogdanovic. I even mentioned him earlier in the description but I forgot that he would start at SG even if he played some SF and PG too. I can’t get too mad at him stealing Buddy’s starting job given that my channel pretty much depends on Serbian viewers to bolster my view count totals.
What will happen when Bogs comes back from his current injury? Will the starting lineup remain the same? Will he be inserted in it somehow? Who will get replaced? How many angry emojis will get tweeted? Will Dave Joerger get fired as the Kings’ hot start cools off and the team implodes? Stay tuned for the thrilling conclusion!
