The Sacramento Kings have gotten off to a slow start to the 2012-13 season. It's not too shocking considering the team's lack of success in recent years, but it is somewhat discouraging because the Kings looked to be an improved team coming into the season.
As with most everything, the Kings' play this season has been neither black nor white. Some things have gone well; some things haven't. But mostly there's a large gray area, especially so early into the season and without a larger sample size to go off of.
The same can be said of the individual players on the Kings. Most of the players have done some good things and some bad things during the first part of the season. In effect, they've been neither black nor white.
That said, there are some players that have stood out either for their good play or for their bad play during the opening stretch. That's what this slideshow's devoted to: pointing out the studs and duds during the Kings' first slate of games this season.
