Larkin sent me a link to an interview in today's Sacramento Bee that Mark Kreidler did with King's Coach Rick Adelman. It is excellent. There are several quotes from Adelman that ring true to me, including:
And I think we obviously need one more big guy [me too!]. You look at our team, and I think it's pretty obvious that the area we got hurt in was people attacking the basket on us. So I think if we can become more athletic and become more of a factor at deterring people attacking the basket, it's certainly going to enhance our defense.

From my standpoint, I'd certainly like for him [Divac] to come back. I think he's so valuable to this team, on and off the court. He has had a huge impact on this team, and if you didn't have him, not only would you be missing a skilled player, but also the glue - a major part of the glue that held this team together.

you start with Mike Bibby and Doug Christie, and Peja, Webber, Brad (Miller) and Bobby - that's six solid, very solid NBA players who all are proven. That's a heck of a lot more than most teams have...
