DeMarcus Cousins (Ed Szczepanski, USATODAY)
Think of DeMarcus Cousins. 6-11, 270 pounds, with a burgeoning post-game, Boogie is surely banging, powering, and willing his way to bucket after bucket in your head. And you’re not wrong for imagining him that way, but doing so still does a disservice to the skill and finesse that makes Cousins one of the league’s best and most unique big men. Read More »

DeMarcus Cousins has a reputation for being a very volatile personality on the court. He’s also apparently not in the mood for too much banter with reporters either. Cousins was asked by a European journalist today whether he knows where Slovenia is. He provided a very direct and witty response to the question.

It’s easy for fans to malign DeMarcus Cousins. His behavior on the court can be equal parts brilliant and cringe-worthy — of the latter, when he goes out of his way to antagonize a referee he feels hasn’t been fair. But when Cousins recently told NBA.com, “I am a role model, absolutely,” he wasn’t being ironic. The boy from Mobile, Alabama has grown into one of the more dominant big men in the NBA and after making Team USA this summer, following two exasperating tryouts in the last two years, the sky’s the limit — just don’t tell the fans still gulping the Boogie haterade in a 42 oz. Slurpee cup. Read More »
Kings rookie Nik Stauskas spent two seasons at Michigan before declaring for the 2014 NBA Draft. He shot better than 44 percent in both those campaigns, and the Kings expect him to make an impact from beyond the arc after they finished 27th in the league in three-point shooting percentage last season. A recent video of Stauskas training this summer should make Sac-town fans happy and could even mean he gets a nod for the three-point shootout in February. Read More »
It was revealed this week that Hello Kitty is actually not a cat. While this might not be a big deal for most, for whatever reason Hello Kitty has been tied to the NBA a lot. The recent news is a nice opportunity to explore the odd connections between Hello Kitty and the NBA. Read More »
Before Team USA trimmed its roster down to the final 12 last weekend, there was a lot of speculation on whether DeMarcus Cousins would make the team, as head coach Mike Krzyzewski appeared to be favoring Mason Plumlee as a secondary big man.

The Boston Celtics are in the process of carving out more room to add players, and either trading Rajon Rondo or signing him to an extension aren’t high on their priority list, according to the Boston Globe‘s Gary Washburn. He appears destined for a free agency tour next summer, and the C’s want more evidence he’s bounced back from his ACL surgery before determining whether he’s a part of their long-term rebuilding effort.

Anytime you have winners you’re bound to have some people that lose. This year’s summer is no exception: there were plenty of teams and players who “lost” this past offseason. After counting down this summer’s “winners,” it’s only right that we give an equal share of the limelight to those whose situation was less fortunate than their NBA counterparts. Let’s take a look at some of the “Biggest Losers” of the offseason (sorry…there’s no association to the weight loss show on this one, unless we’re counting LeBron’s newer, skinnier body as a loss).
