Cousins on Kings: ‘I don’t really understand what’s going on’

Any hope that the drama involving Sacramento Kings center DeMarcus Cousins and his team would die down following the firing of George Karl can pretty much be thrown out the window. Cousins, one of the top all-around players in the NBA, is also one of the most divisive. His on-court and off-court actions since entering the league as the No. 5 pick of the Kings back in 2010 has made...

The Sacramento Kings' sudden, surprising restraint

The Sacramento Kings aren't known for showing restraint. Instead, over the past few years, they've repeatedly self-combusted by mixing reckless ambition with short-sighted goals. Make the playoffs!

Rajon Rondo believes he will be a great fit within the Fred Hoiberg’s Chicago Bulls offense. “It’s more of a read-based offense. It’s not so much dictated on calling a set every time down the floor,” Rondo said, via the Chicago Tribune. “I like to make my plays off reactions. I try to be two or three steps ahead of my guy, my opponent. So it’s a perfect system to try...

Rajon Rondo signs two-year deal with Bulls

Many thought Rajon Rondo’s career would end in Sacramento, and that the effort wouldn’t be there from the now-30-year-old point guard, myself included, but those people were very wrong.
