DeMarcus Cousins Sets Goal Of No More Than Five Technicals In 2014-2015

DeMarcus Cousins

Talent will never hold DeMarcus Cousins back. The 6-11, 270 pound behemoth combines supreme coordination with a soft touch and rare offensive knack, traits on full display since he roared onto the national scene as a freshman at the University of Kentucky in 2009-2010. Cousins put his unique package of skills together for a career-best campaign last season, averaging 22.7 points and and 11.7 rebounds per game and posting the NBA’s fifth best PER.

Among the things we loved most about the World Cup were the unique replays and camera angles offered by the FIBA broadcast team. We were privy to awesome views of the games in Spain to which we simply aren’t accustomed from NBA action, and it made the rare August-September basketball even better than we were anticipating. Though Team USA took down upstart Serbia in the gold medal game yesterday and officially ended the tournament in the process, the FIBA experience was far from over for fans. Read More »

The USA cruised past Lithuania in the FIBA World Cup semifinals yesterday, 96-68, and it got a little feisty after the game concluded.

We thought the potential for on-court drama involving Team USA in the FIBA World Cup mostly died after France stunned the basketball world by beating host nation and American rival Spain in the quarterfinals yesterday. Well, we were at least sort of right. As the clock ticked to zeros in the United States’ ho-hum semifinal win over Lithuania today, a minor fracas involving several opposing players broke out on the floor. The keeper of peace? You guessed it – Team USA coach and Army man Mike Krzyzewski. Read More »

Faried: Notion That USA Will Struggle Versus Size Is “Massively Disrespectful”

Kenneth Faried

After intended frontcourt stalwarts Kevin Durant, Blake Griffin, Kevin Love, and LaMarcus Aldridge opted against playing for Team USA in the FIBA World Cup, the Americans’ biggest strength became its litany of super-talented guards. Kyrie Irving, Steph Curry, Derrick Rose, and James Harden are all franchise cornerstones when healthy, capable of directing and creating offense like only a select few players in the world.
