Hard to say honestly? Burnergate was such a singular, defining event that it’s hard for me to say anything good about Colangelo.
But that 2018 team was underrated, and if actually given time to grow, would probably be way better than the mismatch of parts we have now. Simmons was Colangelo’s consensus #1 pick and Redick is probably the best free agent signing this team has done in a long time, while everyone else on that team was Hinkie acquisitions.
(That said, last year’s team was also really good. It’s this year’s team, where they decided Horford could play the 4 and Tobias the 3, that’s painful and makes no sense.)
Sometimes I wonder about the world where the Kings pick-swap and Fultz trade never happened, and we ended up with De’Aaron Fox at #4 instead, and man that team would have rocked.
