’09-’10 Season in Review:
The Kings suffered through their fourth straight losing season but showed improvement in the second year of their re-building project.  That improvement can be attributed to the arrival of the next big thing; Tyreke Evans (allow me to say “I told you so” as I have been high on Evans since seeing him in person at the 2008 McDonald’s All-American Game.)  Evans joined LeBron James and Dwyane Wade as the only players in the NBA to average at least 20 points, 5 rebounds, and 5 assists per game and has stud potential written all over him.  In the process of Evans taking the reigns as the face of the franchise, Sacramento decided to deal Kevin Martin partly due to the fact that they didn’t think Martin and Evans were the perfect fit in the same backcourt.  Martin was practically given away though as the Kings received Carl Landry and cap space in exchange.
