Omri Casspi Explains To Dime Why The Kings “Can Be A Force In The West”

Omri Casspi

When looking for a place to continue his NBA dream last summer, the answer seemed obvious to Omri Casspi: Why not go back to where it all began?

Two years after he’d been traded by the Kings, Casspi maintained ties to the community, and he stayed tight with friends like DeMarcus Cousins and Jason Thompson. He had experienced his greatest NBA success during his time in Sacramento, and he always felt as if he had unfinished business. Read More »

Rudy Gay

According to league sources, Yahoo Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski reports Kings forward Rudy Gay has agreed to a three-year, $40 million extension to remain with the Kings through the 2017-18 season.

Kenneth Faried, Rudy Gay, DeMarcus Cousins

We really, really don’t want to believe that this is the first recorded triple flop in history of the NBA. But after careful consideration and an initial inclination to judge it otherwise, we couldn’t come to any other other conclusion – Kenneth Faried, Rudy Gay, and DeMarcus Cousins all flopped simultaneously in Monday night’s matchup between the Denver Nuggets and Sacramento Kings.

DeMarcus Cousins Feels “Like I’m About 45 Years Old” After Grueling Summer

DeMarcus Cousins

DeMarcus Cousins made his first USA Basketball team this summer after two previous tryouts. He was with them when they took gold at the FIBA World Cup in Spain. Two weeks later, training camps started, which includes this week’s trip to China to play exhibition games against the Nets. So it’s no wonder Boogie told NBA.com’s Scott Howard-Cooper on Tuesday before boarding a plane to China, “I feel like I’m 45 years old.” Read More »

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 »

Rudy Gay

During USA Basketball‘s 96-68 evisceration of Lithuania in the FIBA World Cup semifinal game on Thursday, Rudy Gay wasn’t as excited about moving on to Sunday’s gold medal game as some of his teammates. That’s because he got socked in mouth during a drive mid-way through the third quarter, fracturing his jaw and probably requiring a root canal. Gay said afterwards it was a “dirty play.” Read More »

Rudy Gay

The USA Basketball team who took the floor against Finland today was supposed to be one of the weaker iterations of the American powerhouse that’s won the last World Championship (now called the FIBA World Cup), and the last two Olympic gold medals. That said, they dominated Finland on Saturday with some stellar defense, and the last addition to the team, after Paul George went down, Rudy Gay, even skied for a pretty one-handed thump.

Rudy Gay Hopes DeMarcus Cousins’ Injury Was Boogie “Just Being A Drama Queen”

DeMarcus Cousins, Rudy Gay

During a USA Basketball scrimmage in practice today, Kings power forward and FIBA World Cup hopeful DeMarcus Cousins, went down with a right knee injury. While the extent of the damage isn’t yet known — he’ll have what USA Basketball Chairman Jerry Colangelo called a “precautionary” MRI — he didn’t appear to be in a lot of pain. Teammate and recent USA Basketball invitee, Rudy Gay hopes Boogie was “just being a drama queen.” Read More »
