Watch all of Skal Labissiere’s buckets from his big Monday night

ska-sum

Skal Labissiere was Sacramento’s leading scorer with 16 points in 24 minutes off the bench last night. The No. 28 pick in the draft looked great early with a seven-point first quarter, showcasing a variety of offensive skills, to give the Kings the lead through one.

Unfortunately it wasn’t enough to win in the end as his team dropped its third summer league game, but Labissiere was the bright spot for the young Kings. His offensive potential was on full display in Las Vegas last night.

Take a look at Labissiere’s six buckets from the field:

 

1.) Jump-hook over Cheick Diallo from the tough angle

2.) For three!!!

3.) Pump-fake into tough fadeaway… And one!

4.) Finishing with soft touch through contact in transition

5.) Battling through two opponents to clean up his own miss with a slam

Let’s take another look at that dunk:

6.) One more three-ball in the late comeback effort

    Some of those shots were lucky to fall, but who the hell is this guy?

    You go Skal, prove them wrong.

    I hope Cal sees this and learns to let players play to their strengths instead of trying to shoehorn them into what you want to see them as. Skal was never going to be the tough down low man, and Cal should’ve adjusted. He also should’ve adjusted vs Wisconsin and not played stall ball and lose the game.

    • I remember him doing that once or twice late, like maybe in the SEC tourney or NCAA.

      Really looks like Cal played him in the wrong place all year.

      If Dakari had come back or Isaac had more experience, this is where Skal would have played all year – as a stretch four.

    Ok… Where was video # 5 last year?! So glad to see that Skal had a great game but goodness, where was that toughness? Either Cal held him back or his balls just dropped BIG TIME!

    One of the problems when your bread-and-butter is developing players is that sometimes you don’t get to actually enjoy the results in blue. What could have been…

      What does this article have to do with football…?

      I think he’s commenting on his being tired of watching past UK players’s basketball videos, when football is around the corner. I concur.

      No offense to basketball, but football is a much better sport IMO, so I look forward to Stoops bringing the team up to the level of support the other SEC teams get.

      So, just because YOU like football better, KSR should cut down on the coverage that made it so popular? Makes sense.

      Newsflash: UK basketball – past, present, and future – is pretty big to fans of UK.

    He looked great last night! I think not having Dakari Johnson hurt Skal and frustrated Cal. Skal had to play out of position due to the lack of a true center, and it took him out of his game. He is not a banger. He’s a stretch 4 with a decent mid-range to three point shot, and some light post moves.

      Agree to a point. Certainly a 4 but Cal had other options at center. Skal was way to skinny for the post and playing Lee or Humphries in the post would have freed him up a lot more.

      Lee couldn’t stay out of foul trouble last season, and Humphries was out of shape and still developing as well. There was a lot of situations where we didn’t have any other option but to play Skal out of position at the 5.

      Playing him at the 5 did not help the team at all may as well played Willis at the 5.

    Sentient, exactly. Skal was progressing at UK, just not as quickly as we needed. To boot, his game is built much better for NBA which is about finesse and spacing. College game is just so physical and easier to double (and triple) bigs. He’s going to have a good NBA career. Still needs to get stronger, but not many bigs with that shot, which should keep him in league. Happy for the kid.

    loved he enthusiasm he used. The fist pumps etc. The boy was trying, something that lacked at UK I guess Willie is teaching him well.

    Wish I hadn’t seen these videos, as it just pisses me off more about last season. I hope he succeeds, but I don’t want to watch it.

      I thought you liked football better and couldn’t care less about former basketball players?

    i have heard that Robic only signs one year contracts instead of the standard two years. Each year he says is his last. I was told that he and Cal don’t really get along, they only have a professional relationship, but they both know what they have is a good thing.
