DeMarcus Representing In Cleveland

LeBron James was right. The Cavs need an additional playmaker. But they also need a big man who can do something about the grown man game of DeMarcus Cousins who, frankly, did whatever he wanted to do against Kevin Love and Tristan Thompson. Cousins nearly had a triple double, coming up one assist short as…

DeMarcus and Rondo Have Something In Common

The DeMarcus Cousins apology was forthcoming and expected once the Sacramento Kings hit him with what was labeled a “substantial fine” rumored to be 50 grand. The apology issued via statement- did he write it or did his agent?-came one year after the Rajon Rondo apology, issued via a statement. Both apologies happened in the…

Defending DeMarcus Is a Coach Thing

DeMarcus Cousins attracts drama to him and unless you have been under a rock for the past seven seasons you know not much has changed since the gifted big man has been in the NBA. Professionalism has always been a struggle. The reasons are both complex and simplistic. Poor impulse control and little anger management,…

How is that Defense Looking Sac-town?

When the Kings hired Dave Joerger after they fired George Karl, a year after they fired Tyrone Corbin, after they head scratchingly fired Mike Malone, after they fired Keith Smart, and after they fired Paul Westphal, and before that Kenny Natt…the Kings don’t care that in a ten year period they have had 9 coaches.…

Sacramento: Why?

The Sacramento Kings actually added four wins to their total from last season but still fell well short of a playoff spot.  Their 33-49 record put them in 10th place in the West and 8 games behind Houston for the final postseason berth. The Kings scored the 3rd most points in the conference but it…

Fire George Karl?

The George Karl discontent never went south. It just simmered beneath the surface, waiting for the appropriate trigger to fling the gasoline on the fire (again) so the house could burn down. A loss to Brooklyn did the trick, and because the Kings front office has the market cornered on overreaction, they began spitting and…

DeMarcus Cousins: Sacramento Needs Him More Than Ever

The Sacramento Kings went 0-4 to begin this month when star power forward DeMarcus Cousins missed time with an Achilles strain. Sacramento immediately won three of four after his return, which was no mere coincidence. Following a loss to the Spurs on November 9, Cousins averaged 36.3 points per game to go with 10.6 rebounds against the…
