Route 56: It all went wrong for the Kings when Boogie danced

The race for the No. 8 seed in the Western Conference is hardly a done deal. The competition will almost certainly linger into April with no clear resolution. This year’s 8 seed in the West will not be a 45- or 48-win team, as we’ve seen in past seasons. It will be a team near the .500 mark, and it’s no sure thing that the Golden State Warriors’ first-round playoff opponent...

DeMarcus Cousins ‘untouchable’ in trade talks

The Sacramento Kings are willing to pick up the phone and listen to trade talk—just don’t ask about DeMarcus Cousins. Cousins, he of 104 points over his last two outings alone, won’t be moving at this year’s NBA trade deadline, which occurs on Feb. 18. Forget for a moment his on-court dominance and understand that Cousins is a key part of the franchise’s marketing strategy...

Demarcus Cousins destroys Hawks player who tried to run through him

Pro tip: When Sacramento Kings big man Demarcus Cousins sets a screen, do not try to run through it. It’s better to just turn around and head the other way. Atlanta Hawks point guard Dennis Schroder learned that lesson during Thursday night’s game, when Boogie set a pick and handed the ball off to Rajon Rondo for the easy layup. Unfortunately, Schroder tried to run through the...
