KINGS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Opinion: What to expect from Isaiah Cousins this season?

On NBA draft night the Sacramento Kings invested their lone second-round draft pick on Isaiah Cousins from the University of Oklahoma. Cousins brings versatility to the Kings roster. He is technically a point guard, but can play both guard positions because of his 6’4”/195-pound physique. Cousins also has the ability to score, pass, and rebound […] Opinion: What to expect from...

Searching for hope

I don’t know how many times I’ve started an article with some version of “being a Kings fan is tough” over the last few years, but it’s a lot. Still, it’s true. We’ve been let down by this team so many times over the last decade that it’s starting to wear us down as a fanbase. I’ve usually taken offseason time as a time to recharge and refresh, and to hold...

Cousins looking to bring back leadership and a winning mentality to the Kings

You have a high profile athlete with a mindset that can go one of two ways. DeMarcus Cousins has made a living on proving his critics wrong and everyday is a storybook of his reputation. Some claim “he is the bad guy,” while others say he is simply...

Cousins on Kings: ‘I don’t really understand what’s going on’

Any hope that the drama involving Sacramento Kings center DeMarcus Cousins and his team would die down following the firing of George Karl can pretty much be thrown out the window. Cousins, one of the top all-around players in the NBA, is also one of the most divisive. His on-court and off-court actions since entering the league as the No. 5 pick of the Kings back in 2010 has made...

The Sacramento Kings' sudden, surprising restraint

The Sacramento Kings aren't known for showing restraint. Instead, over the past few years, they've repeatedly self-combusted by mixing reckless ambition with short-sighted goals. Make the playoffs! Keep DeMarcus Cousins happy! Random loud noises! They've predictably fallen flat on their face, over and over again. Armed with the vaguest understanding of just how complex the NBA's...

Rajon Rondo on Bulls offense: ‘Perfect system to be great in’

Rajon Rondo believes he will be a great fit within the Fred Hoiberg’s Chicago Bulls offense. “It’s more of a read-based offense. It’s not so much dictated on calling a set every time down the floor,” Rondo said, via the Chicago Tribune. “I like to make my plays off reactions. I try to be two or three steps ahead of my guy, my opponent. So it’s a perfect system to try...

Rajon Rondo signs two-year deal with Bulls

Many thought Rajon Rondo’s career would end in Sacramento, and that the effort wouldn’t be there from the now-30-year-old point guard, myself included, but those people were very wrong. Rondo looked like the quintessential point guard he used to be, hooking up his teammates and spreading the ball around beautifully, ranking first in the league in assists (11.7/game). He also...
