Robertson: Kings ‘Need Better Athletes’
With the NBA celebrating the 50th anniversary of Oscar Robertson’s triple-double season, the Hall of Famer will be at Power Balance Pavilion tonight for Fan Appreciation Night.
(Sacramento Bee) Your thoughts on the Kings team?
(Robertson) They need to address one situation. They need better athletes. It’s difficult to get a player and try to make him a player he’s not (Tyreke Evans at point guard). Sometimes you need a great trade and luck, too. Years ago, Bill Russell was traded to the Celtics and they became great, or when the Lakers got Kareem (Abdul-Jabbar) and then Shaq (O’Neal).
