When shooting guard Ben McLemore was initially drafted to the Sacramento Kings, it worried me at first that he was entering an environment that would not set him up for success. He seems like truly nice young man, and one who I happen to be rooting for. Well, it appears that McLemore is already setting himself up for success for hard work based on the tweet below.

McLemore’s “great day in the gym” is hopefully the first of many, and with the shooting guard’s help maybe the Kings can make some unexpected noise next season. In any case, will definitely keep an eye on McLemore’s development and if he can gel on the court with DeMarcus Cousins, then we could be looking at a potentially great offensive team. My only concern left? Well other than shaky management at the top of the Kings organization, no one on this roster really specializes in defense so it makes me wonder how they expect to stop other teams from scoring.

If McLemore can continue working hard and avoiding Cousins’ bad influence on the court then we could be looking at a future All Star. When your jump shot is compared to Ray Allen that is pretty good company, but McLemore still has a lot left to prove.
