Another day, another leaked Jock’s private part being delivered to the masses. This time it’s Sacramento Kings forward DeMarcus Cousins… allegedly. Here’s the story, a “dancer” named Asia Giselle Monroe is responsible for the leaked photo. Not sure what prompted her to release it. It’s been said that right before she made her Twitter account [...]
Hours after he was accused of sending an inappropriate photo to a woman, Sacramento Kings center DeMarcus Cousins was ruled out of Wednesday's game against New Orleans due to food poisoning.
Earlier Wednesday, the agent for Cousins denied allegations this his client sent a nude photo to a woman in a text message.
The photo in question started to show up on Internet websites...
(Eds: APNewsNow. Will be updated. With AP Photos.) By ANTONIO GONZALEZ AP Sports Writer Ever since he was a kid, Isaiah Thomas has heard the questions about his size. And, of course, whether he's related to that Hall of Famer with a similar name (He's not).
The only answers that satisfy anybody come on the court.
All of 5-foot-9, Thomas slipped to the Sacramento Kings with...
In case you haven't been watching the Sacramento Kings, and there's a decent chance you haven't, DeMarcus Cousins has been a revelation since head coach Paul Westphal was fired. Cousins has said repeatedly how much he enjoys playing for new coach Keith Smart. But he's not the only one helping Cousins turn himself in to the Kings' best player. As Ken Helin...
I'm going to make random notes as I watch because that's all I think this game requires. Nice beginning of the game by Isaiah Thomas with the 3 runners in the lane. That's obviously a nice compliment to Tyreke Evans.
Well, first thing I've noticed is how sloppy the Hornets are with the ball. 3 TO's early on, and that means 20 TO's the rest of...
Sacramento BeeThere was a new face at the Kings' practice facility this morning working with center Hassan Whiteside after the team's shootaround.
Clifford Ray, the former center and longtime coach in the NBA and CBA, will be working with the Kings as a consultant primarily for the team's big men when the team is at home, Smart said.
"He just has a way of talking...
2 bad teams square off at Arco for the 2nd time this season. The Kings won the last game when Marcus Thornton and Tyreke Evans got hot. Oh and there was this other little dramedy moment of Westphal telling Cousins to go home. Since then, Westphal got canned, Cousins has behaved much more often under Keith Smart, Smart had his option for next season picked up, and the Kings are still...
Most frustrating of fashions? That means the Marcus Thornton foul with time running out on Arron Afflalo. It's Isaiah Thomas missing 1 FT (before an Afflalo made 3 that cuts the Kings lead to 1) that would have sealed the game. It's the Kings not really running any quality plays beyond a few PnR's with Tyreke Evans and Jason Thompson early in the OT.
As far as losses...
John Salmons made the go-ahead layup with 6.8 seconds left, Marcus Thornton scored 25 points, and the Sacramento Kings snapped a four-game losing streak by beating the New Orleans Hornets 99-98 on Wednesday night.
The Hornets led by one and inbounded with 8.9 seconds left, but Isaiah Thomas stole Trevor Ariza's pass and quickly spotted Salmons cutting to the basket for a left...
Keith Smart took over Sacramento under some very strange circumstances.
The very public spat between Paul Westphal and DeMarcus Cousins eventually cost the veteran coach his job and brought Keith Smart back to the forefront for his second head coaching sting in the league. The Kings were not going to blow the doors open and make the Playoffs. The roster is too young, plus you had...
