Kings versus 76ers

I said previously that I did not understand the Weber trade. Running on the treadmill and watching the Kings versus 76ers game with Jack, I got some hint about why Petrie was willing to make the Weber trade. Offensively, Weber was 7 for 20 from the field for a 35% field goal percentage. On the dismal pre-All Star road trip, Weber took 63 shots and about made 31% of them. Philadelphia fans better get used to watching Weber miss lots of shots. Defensively, Kenny Thomas (one of the players that the Kings got for Weber) went around Weber repeatedly. A number of forwards have had career nights against Weber and the Kings in the last month, including players on the Clippers and Hawks. Thomas ended up with 16 points and 10 rebounds.
