GIF: Boogie’s Behind-The-Back Burn Of KG

Kevin Garnett, DeMarcus Cousins

The Kings fell down by 16 at the half against the Nets last night. DeMarcus Cousins was just 2-for-12 in the opening 24 minutes, but DMC and the Kings came back to make a game of it late, only to fall 103-100 to the visiting Nets. Cousins rebounded to go 8-of-12 in the second half and one of those eight field goals embarrassed former Defensive PLayer of the Year, Kevin Garnett. The slick handle on display by a 6-11, 240-pound human being should be outlawed as unfair to opponents. Read More »

Damian Lillard

Damian Lillard

The Sacramento Kings knew he was getting the ball and knew he was taking the shot, but they were still helpless to stop him when they needed to most. The fourth quarter is called “Lillard Time” for a reason, after all. Watch Damian Lillard live up to that billing by splitting the pick-and-roll and flying for a big slam in crunch-time of the Portland Trail Blazers’ 98-94 win over the Kings. Read More »

Video: Tyson Chandler Flops To Foul Out DeMarcus Cousins; Mavs Win In OT

Tyson Chandler, DeMarcus Cousins

Boogie was giving Tyson Chandler the business last night in Sacramento. The 2012 Defensive Player of the Year was no match for DeMarcus Cousins on the block, with the Kings big man spinning past him, or simply crunching through him for 32 points and 16 rebounds. But with under 30 seconds left in regulation, the cagey Chandler sold some incidental contact while playing defense, got the call and Boogie was gone. Read More »

Watch This Sick DeMarcus Cousins Mix: “Unstoppable”

DeMarcus Cousins

It’s unlikely DeMarcus Cousins gets voted into his first All-Star game by the fans. So far, he’s eighth among the Western Conference front-court players, with Dwight Howard shamefully in front of him and 200K votes separating him and the No. 3 player, Marc Gasol, he’s going to have to get selected by the coaches. Regardless of whether that happens, Boogie should be an All-Star and probably should have been an All-Star last season, too. This “Unstoppable” mix by David Golic shows a brief glimpse why.

Russell Westbrook Murders Rim So Hard The Kings Crowd Is Impressed

Russell Westbrook

We don’t want to gloss over the fact Russell Westbrook really struggled to find the bottom of the cup in Oklahoma City’s 104-83 loss to the Kings tonight. He was a dreadful 3-of-19 in the loss, but in the opening period Russ annihilated the rim after splitting defenders on the high pick-and-roll. Even the Sleep Train Arena crowd was enthused.

DeMarcus Cousins Says Firing Of Mike Malone Negatively Impacting Kings

DeMarcus Cousins

It seems so long ago that the Sacramento Kings were 9-5 and the talk of basketball. Could they maintain this pace throughout the season? Was DeMarcus Cousins a MVP candidate? Was the ship finally righted in Cowbell country? We know the answers to those exciting questions now, plus the most influential development that contributed to them: the mid-December firing of Mike Malone. And three weeks later with his team a season-worst six games below .500, Cousins confirmed the obvious notion that the abrupt change is still negatively influencing the Kings. Read More »

Video: Watch A Tired DeMarcus Cousins Take A Possession Off

DeMarcus Cousins

Before you lambaste DeMarcus Cousins for the video after the jump, keep in mind he missed 10 games with viral meningitis and probably because of his absence his preferred coach lost his job. That’s not to excuse his totally uninvolved presence with his hands on his knees for an entire Kings possession with four and a half minutes left in Sacramento’s 110-107 win over the Timberwolves last night. It’s merely a reminder of what Boogie’s already gone through this season. Read More »

Ahh, to be young enough to jump out of the gym. Early in Sacramento’s 110-107 win over the Timberwolves on Thursday night, Ben McLemore got a chance to do just that on consecutive rim-rockers as the Kings forced back-to-back fast breaks. Read More »
