George Karl Met DeMarcus Cousins And It Was Suuuuuuper Awkward

Sometimes the universe is good to us, like when it brings us video of George Karl and DeMarcus Cousins meeting at a Summer League game—for what is likely the first time since Karl began doing everything in his power to alienate his team’s only star player—and allowing us to bask in the incredible awkwardness of the… »7/14/15 10:15am7/14/15 10:15am

The Kings Are Screwed No Matter What Happens To DeMarcus Cousins

Things are happening quickly. On Monday, Yahoo reported that new Kings coach George Karl is looking to ship DeMarcus Cousins out of town. (Crazy!)

Since Yesterday, DeMarcus Cousins Has Been Suspended, Fired His Old Agent, And Hired A New One That Has Bad Blood With Kings Management

Players switching agents generally creates only a tiny ripple of interest for fans, if that. They likely change agents or acquire new management more often than we realize, and when they do, it may not change the course of their career. DeMarcus Cousins, the most talented young big man in the NBA, changed agents… »12/23/12 1:35pm12/23/12 1:35pm
