Okafor is 14/11 in his career, younger, and he didn't fail a physical in the past season. This seems like one of those Larry Brown falling in love, then out of love with a player situations. Chandler will probably be in his doghouse by Thanksgiving, while Okafor will be on a team contending for a division title.
I don't know that the Kings didn't want to win it...they just had too many players that didn't want to be the one to lose it. Everyone except Bibby looked like a deer in the headlights when they touched the ball.
