Boogie Cousins And John Wall Put On A Show; Some Team Also Won I Guess

A point guard and a center generally can't duel in the way we usually think of players dueling—directly, one-on-one, attacking each other at both ends. Apart from the occasional defensive switch or confrontation at the rim, they'll mostly compete from a distance, and indirectly, via their teams and the scoreboard. … » 3/15/15 1:15pm 3/15/15 1:15pm

Do Not Try And Take A Charge From DeMarcus Cousins

If you look closely, you can see Jae Crowder regret his decision to try and take a charge from a DeMarcus Cousins with 94 feet of built-up momentum, and begin to lean away to the side. Unfortunately, that doesn't prevent him from getting a knee to his chest, or the ball viciously dunked on his head. Poor Jae Crowder. » 2/21/15 10:43am 2/21/15 10:43am

Charles Barkley Doesn't Give A Shit About Propriety On Live TV

Charles Barkley is always going to say whatever he wants to say, live TV and censors be damned. For some reason he objects to the idea that the Kings would discuss their head coaching position with DeMarcus Cousins—I'm not sure why the Kings wouldn't want to talk with their maximum contract star about what he wants… » 2/12/15 7:37pm 2/12/15 7:37pm

What In The World Was DeMarcus Cousins Thinking On This Inbounds?

Did he think he was on offense? Did he think the Warriors were shooting on the other basket? Did he think the ball was being inbounded from behind him? Did he think he was guarding somebody who hadn't yet walked onto the court? Sometimes players make the wrong decision on defense, or react too slowly, or forget… » 2/04/15 12:52am 2/04/15 12:52am

DeMarcus Cousins Gives Rock-Stupid Sportswriter A Much-Deserved Smack

Five years ago today, professional dumb person Clay Travis tweeted a bold-ass prediction. "There is a 100% chance that DeMarcus Cousins is arrested for something in the next five years. 100%. Write it in stone," he said. "Write it in stone," he said! » 1/30/15 10:41am 1/30/15 10:41am

Heroically Lazy DeMarcus Cousins Takes An Entire Possession Off

Joakim Noah Has No Patience For Your Goddamn Flopping

The Chicago Bulls played without Derrick Rose and Pau Gasol last night, and got rolled by Boogie Cousins and the Kings as a result. They kept it close through the first half, but the game started to slip away from them in the third quarter, at which point Joakim Noah decided that he'd just had it with STUPID… » 11/21/14 9:57am 11/21/14 9:57am

DeMarcus Cousins Continues Strict No-Handshake Policy Against Clippers

The LA-Sacramento handshake feud is officially the Capulets and the Montagues of our generation. No Sacramento King will ever again exchange ritualistic-verging-on-meaningless signs of mutual respect with a Los Angeles Clipper. Not while DeMarcus Cousins is around. » 11/30/13 5:30pm 11/30/13 5:30pm

Do Not Even Think About Dapping Chris Paul In Front Of DeMarcus Cousins

Saturday's Kings-Clippers game ended with DeMarcus Cousin missing a tough, potentially game-tying shot as time expired. As Cousins was leaving the court, he noticed his teammate, Isaiah Thomas, attempting to shake Chris Paul's hand. Thomas should have known better, because Cousins was having none of that shit. » 11/25/13 11:17am 11/25/13 11:17am

Since Yesterday, DeMarcus Cousins Has Been Suspended, Fired His Old…

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 1:35pm 12/23/12 1:35pm

Awesome DeMarcus Cousins Suspended Two Games For Trash-Talking Terrible…

It started as two players—DeMarcus Cousins and Tim Duncan—battling it out in the trenches, but Sean Elliott, now a color commentator for the Spurs and obviously an objective analyst to the bitter end, jumped in to defend his beleaguered teammate. After scoring on Duncan twice and drawing a foul on a third posession,… » 11/11/12 7:30pm 11/11/12 7:30pm

DeMarcus Cousins Chases Errant Shot, Runs Face-First Into Basket

The irony is that Cousins really does everything he ought to be doing here. John Salmons pretty much tosses a jumpshot into the stands, and Cousins gets after it to try to maintain possession for the Kings. It's the basket stanchion that's recklessly sitting there. But that's good hustle. » 3/23/12 9:45am 3/23/12 9:45am
