How Switching Teams Changes Your Shot Selection

DeMarcus Cousins had a breakout year, reaching the vaunted 20-10 average and capitalizing on his potential. What’s most impressive that his usage rate (the proportion of possessions he used by taking shots, free throws, or making turnovers) ballooned without a decrease in efficiency — in fact he was more efficient than ever. A usage rate of 32.7 is elite, far beyond the range...

Ben McLemore does epic photobomb during Sacramento Kings media day

There are few things that I like more than epic photobombs and during Friday’s Sacramento Kings media day, second-year guard Ben McLemore decided to show off his photobombing skills.

DeMarcus Cousins came away from Team USA a more confident defender

There have been many times in speaking with DeMarcus Cousins over the last four years he’d say he wasn’t much of a shot blocker. There was always a hint of humor in those comments, but for years Cousins had always been told he wasn’t a good defender. Those who know him have always said he has the instincts, smarts and was athletic enough to be a good defender. Now Cousins...

The Kings should stop taking Daryl Morey's calls

Last week, the terms of a trade between the Sacramento Kings and Houston Rockets were released: the Rockets are sending Alonzo Gee, Scotty Hopson, and a trade exception to the Kings, in exchange for Jason Terry and two second-round picks. No, it’s not a blockbuster. It’s an uninspiring trade in that it looks to be motivated a lot more by adjusting each team’s overall financial...
