Sacramento Kings forward Thomas Robinson has been one of my favorite players since he came on the scene at Kansas. I like his work ethic and his story is inspiring all in itself.
Robinson has been steady as a rookie and showing signs that he’ll be a big time forward once he gets the hang of the NBA game.
In the meantime, Robinson needs to get the hang of driving fast or not driving at all after wrecking his Porsche Monday night according to Cowbell Kingdom.
Robinson was on his way home after a game, and crashed after turning the wrong direction. Robinson apparently drove his white Porsche Panamera over a concrete divide at a speed that no one knows right now.
Luckily he was unhurt, and actually tweeted about the accident.

Talk about one eye-opening ally-oop from Kings' Isaiah Thomas to teammate Thomas Robinson.
What made this alley-oop even more amazing is where Isaiah threw the ball to Robinson - at half-court and with a no-look pass!
Right at the end of the first quarter between the Kings and Cavaliers, Isaiah was out n the break, looking to close the quarter when he found a streaking...
TNT NBA analyst Charles Barkley is never one to mince words, so when he was asked what his advice to Sacramento Kings forward DeMarcus Cousins would be, he kept it short and simple.
“Grow up”, Barkley told ESPN’s Pardon the Interruption on Wednesday. “Just grow up. He’s got a world of talent…he’s not in college anymore. We’re men. NBA stands for No Babies Allowed...
Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson said Tuesday he has been given permission by Commissioner David Stern to present a counter-offer for the Kings NBA franchise directly to the league's board of governors. The Maloof family, which owns the Sacramento Kings, reportedly has received an offer of $525 million from a group that wants to buy the team and move it to Seattle. Johnson...
Two people familiar with the decision say the Maloof family has agreed to sell the Sacramento Kings to a Seattle group led by investor Chris Hansen.
The people spoke on condition of anonymity to The Associated Press on Sunday night because the deal is still pending approval from the NBA Board of Governors.
One person said the Maloofs are selling all 65 percent of their share for...

Kevin Johnson had to do this last year to keep the Sacramento Kings from going to Anaheim and be owned by the Samueli family. Now, he's having to defend his town and arena against the Maloof brothers desire to take the Kings north to Seattle.
This morning, at the State of Downtown Breakfast, Johnson admitted that he's in a "six-week...
SACRAMENTO -- This was no time for Sacramento Kings coach Keith Smart to be picky. He and his team needed a victory, so although there was no domination, holding on for a 124-118 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Monday night was just fine. An announced crowd of 12,194 at Sleep Train Arena watched DeMarcus Cousins lead the Kings with 26 points, 14 rebounds, six assists...
Numbers are deceptive. Sometimes numbers are not deceptive. Tonight, there are some really big deal type numbers, and well there are also some numbers that are probably not as big of a deal as they look like.
First, look at minutes. 83: The combined amount of minutes DeMarcus Cousins and Tyreke Evans were on the floor tonight (Cousins had 43 of those).
62: Points in the paint...
Dirk Nowitzki had a great moment with a Sacramento Kings security guard last week. The officials for the Mavericks-Kings game were doing a video review of a play with 36.1 seconds remaining in the game. Dirk was trying to work his way over towards the monitors to see how things were going with the review, only there was one problem: a bold security guard stood in his way.
DeMarcus Cousins had 21 points and 16 rebounds while Tyreke Evans and John Salmons each scored 21 points to help the Sacramento Kings beat the Washington Wizards 95-94 on Wednesday night.
With the score tied, Evans was fouled on a drive to the basket with 11.4 seconds left. He made one of two free throws to give the Kings a 95-94 lead.
Bradley Beal missed a runner in the closing...
Over the weekend, Dallas Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki was doing his best to check out a review near the end of the Mavericks/Kings game at Sleep Train Arena.As Dirk attempted to get a better look at the review, a Kings security guard did his best to block of the path of Dirk from getting a closer look:
It's pretty funny to see this guy's attempt at being a hard-ass without cracking a smile while Dirk dicks around with him.
Being a Kings security guard can't be an easy task -- I'm sure they're always on high alert because DeMarcus Cousins could snap at any time and choke anyone in the building.
It was pretty funny that both announcers noted the security guard...
Dion Waiters blew up Monday night for 33 points (12-18 FG and 6-8 FT) with three three-pointers, two rebounds and five assists, but it was all for naught in a 124-118 loss to the Sacramento Kings.
Waiters has been a super sub since going to the bench. In seven games off the pine, he's averaging 18 points (46.9 FG% and 87.1 FT%), 1 three-pointer, 2.4 rebounds, 2.1 assists...
