David Pick: Omri Casspi on George Karl dismissal, Kings season, and his future in Sacramento. OMRI CASSPI: “Firing George Karl was disappointing. He is one of greatest coaches in the NBA, he is a HOFer. We (players) didn’t do a good enough job of winning games to keep him as head coach. Not making the playoffs is upsetting because we’re a lot more talented than some of the teams in there, but we’ve been through situations this season that are hard for me to explain. The Kings want me back next season, I’m not sure who the coach will be, but I’m adaptable, I’m comfortable in most systems. I’m confident I’ll be back in Sacramento next season.”

His career year has already included a stint as the top three-point percentage shooter in the league and an epic shootout with Stephen Curry during a career-high 36-point performance against Golden State in December. For the 6-foot-9 forward averaging career highs of 12.3 points and 6.4 rebounds a game, it’s the culmination of a lifelong basketball journey. “There are a lot of components (to success), it’s not something that happened overnight. It’s a process of years of work, of dedication, of learning,” he said. “When I was younger I was very raw. I had the potential but I hadn’t worked on it all yet … my game is a lot different now.”
