The Sacramento Kings announced this afternoon that they’d hired former Memphis Grizzlies head coach Dave Joerger. Since it’s the Kings, you probably reflexively think this is a dumb move, but it’s actually the opposite!
This might be counterintuitive, but I wish the Kings had been a little better or a lot worse. They won just few enough games to not matter, and did so boringly, and that’s a shame: This was one of the most dysfunctional seasons in recent memory, and even though everyone knew it, I’m not sure it gets the historical…
The Sacramento Bee and ESPN are reporting the least-surprising coach firing of the year. After their final game tonight, the Sacramento Kings will reportedly dump George Karl, who will have made it through just a season and a half as the Kings’ head coach. The team has now run through eight head coaches since the end…
Tonight, the Sacramento Kings and Phoenix Su—oh, who gives a shit? Both Pacific Division trashcans are in the midst of a tank-off and the Kings coaching staff didn’t even know that Boogie Cousins wasn’t playing until they couldn’t find him on the plane.
The Kings are playing at home tonight, which means they are not resting DeMarcus Cousins and desperately trying to lose their way into keeping their pick this year. This is good news for you and me, and bad news for Al-Farouq Aminu and Mason Plumlee, who got dunked on thoroughly by Young Boogie here.
Rajon Rondo and DeMarcus Cousins, two of the surliest dudes in the NBA, teamed up to pull off a remarkable act of asshole behavior during the final seconds of last night’s game against the Wizards.
The Sacramento Kings shouldn’t really be as newsworthy as they are at this point in the NBA season, and yet they are finding new, creative ways to drive home just what a joke of a franchise they are. They’ve gone 4-21 over the past two months and a once-promising season has dissolved into a slurry of firings, not…
The 26-41 Sacramento Kings were down 74-53 to the 25-41 New Orleans Pelicans at halftime Wednesday night, getting torched by Ryan Anderson for 21 points in the second quarter. Analyzing the first half on CSN California, former King and NBA All-Defensive 1st teamer Doug Christie lost it, pleading with the team to play…
The Sacramento Kings treated fans to a baby race during halftime of yesterday’s game, and oh man did those babies shame themselves.
The Sacramento Kings suspended DeMarcus Cousins for one game on Thursday, the day after he screamed at coach George Karl in a loss to the Cavaliers:
The Oklahoma City Thunder grabbed two technical foul free throws with 1.2 seconds left in the half at Sacramento tonight when Rajon Rondo found himself incapable of handling the ball for an inbounds play—twice.
Boogie Cousins and Chris Paul are probably the two most easily riled up dudes in the Pacific Division, so even though they don’t play the same position, it makes sense that they could very well find themselves beefing. They’re pretty good foils for each other, all told: both guys play with an unveiled intensity, and…
DeMarcus Cousins has an ugly game. He’s a pouting tornado of elbows and snarls, who tramples over opponents instead of going over or around them. He looks so mad on the court, so the second-time all-star is no doubt enjoying his time up in Toronto away from the Sacramento Kings Circus.
Another night, another baffling story about the Sacramento Kings. After their 120-100 loss to the Cavaliers, Rajon Rondo complained to reporters about how only “3 or 4” players showed up to an optional shootaround in the morning.
Vivek Ranadivé bought the Sacramento Kings and saved them from being relocated to Seattle in 2013. But ever since then he has been a disaster, and according to a report from Chris Mannix, the Kings minority owners are trying to get him out of the paint:
The Celtics scored approximately one million points in a defense-optional win over the Sacramento Kings this afternoon. Isaiah Thomas, now an all-star, turned 27 today and he celebrated by getting up there and swatting former teammate DeMarcus Cousins’ layup attempt. “Get that shit out!” indeed.
Two weeks ago, DeMarcus Cousins scored a then-career high 48 points as the Kings beat the Pacers for their fifth straight, and you could almost talk yourself into this misshapen collective of wonky players led by a too-old-for-this-shit coach who doesn’t give a fuck about defense maybe, maybe, coming together to make…
Lunar New Year is next Monday, and the Sacramento Kings are celebrating the holiday during tonight’s game against the Milwaukee Bucks with player introductions in Mandarin and a pregame celebration. Originally, their celebration was also supposed to include these Year of the Monkey shirts given away to fans:
