Sometimes you just have to accept that even though you put together the right process or the right team, things didn’t go your way. The most likely outcome last season was a vastly better one than what the Kings got. Our projections can’t tell bad luck from good and underestimate the Kings as a result.
They predict the Kings will miss the playoffs by 8-10 points this season. But then, per the above quote, they say that the Kings should have finished higher than they did last year. Which I find interesting, since a year ago, pretty much everyone had the Kings far below where they ended up.
