Sacramento Kings: Cousins needs some help

The Sacramento Kings are slowly falling out of the playoff picture in the Western Conference. If you asked me earlier this year who would be the 8th seed in the West, the Utah Jazz would definitely have come to mind, but Sacramento also stood out too. They bolstered their team so much in the off-season, or so I thought. Granted, their record is 21-30, which isn’t that bad in the...

Rajon Rondo Has Apparently Given Up on Playing Defense

Turmoil is brewing in Sacramento, which is something you could say about the Kings during almost every NBA season. Rumors about head coach George Karl getting fired get louder with each passing day. The Kings record sits at 21-30, a reflection of the porous defense they play night in and night out. The Kings give up 108.9 points per game, last in the NBA, and possessions like the...

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big story line. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.

Isaiah Thomas Soars To Block DeMarcus Cousins’ Alley-Oop Attempt (Video)

BOSTON — Isaiah Thomas’ game is bigger than his 5-foot-9 frame. Just ask DeMarcus Cousins. The Celtics point guard scored 22 points Sunday in his team’s win over the Sacramento Kings, but the highlight that had everyone talking came in the third quarter, when Kings point guard Rajon Rondo sent a lob in the direction of the 6-foot-11 Cousins. That’s when Thomas intervened...

Derek Fisher blasts Rondo over triangle offense criticism

The New York Knicks need a point guard and may pursue one in free agency, but it seems safe to say that said point guard won’t be Rajon Rondo. Rondo is a point guard who likes the ball in his hands and isn’t known for his 3-point shooting, and he admitted on Friday that the triangle offense probably wouldn’t be a good fit for him. Knicks coach Derek Fisher, who runs the triangle...

Kings-Celtics Preview

The last time Boston went on this type of run at home, Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett were getting by with a third-year guard thrust into a more prominent role after Rajon Rondo went out with a torn ACL.
