Sacramento did not end the road trip how they probably wanted to. There was optimism around the defense of the roster, so much excitement surrounding rookie Tyrese Haliburton, and Marvin Bagley III is healthy and showing promise.
Yet, things change quickly in the NBA. Bryant West joined the show to talk about the impact of Tyrese Haliburton's absence (is he already Sacramento's 2nd best player?) and what we have seen from the Iowa State product early in this season. We break down the chances of him winning Rookie of the Year and evaluate his likely competition.
Bagley did not play the entirety of the final quarter in the second matchup against the James Harden-less Houston Rockets and Bagley's father was not hesitant to express his unhappiness to the world on Twitter. He asked for the team to please trade Bagley ASAP, but we explain why patience is needed with the big man from the fanbase, his family, the front office, and his teammates.
