  1. Report: Kings will listen to offers for Tyreke Evans

    Apr 26, 2012, 12:59 PM EST

    Tyreke Evans, Wesley Johnson

    Tyreke Evans was the NBA Rookie of the Year, and attacking combo guard who seemed to have a bright future as an anchor for a rebuilding Sacramento Kings team. But his game has stagnated. Part of that is due to injuries (he is now healthy again), part of it is how he fits in and…

  2. League rescinds 13th technical on Cousins, who plays Tuesday

    Apr 24, 2012, 10:54 PM EST

    DeMarcus Cousins, Russell Westbrook

    A couple days ago we told you that unless Sacramento’s DeMarcus Cousins got his 13th technical and unless the league rescinded it he would be sitting out Tuesday night. After review, the league decided that the double technical when Cousins went face to face with Bismack Biyombo really shouldn’t have been one. The league made…

  3. DeMarcus Cousins has 13 technicals, could be out Tuesday

    Apr 23, 2012, 6:56 PM EST

    DeMarcus Cousins

    DeMarcus Cousins has improved a number of areas of his game this year. His relationship with the referees is not one of them. Sunday night Cousins picked up his 13th technical foul of the season, when he went face to face with Bismack Biyombo and they got called for double technical. Cousin’s reaction to have…

  4. NBA Power Rankings: Spurs close out season riding high

    Apr 23, 2012, 4:02 PM EST

    Tim Duncan, Tony Parker

    This is it, our final power rankings of the season. Usually I’d have them ranked in the order I would rank championship contenders, but this year any of the top four could win a chip and I wouldn’t be surprised. Hard to rank teams at the end of the season with everyone coasting and resting…

  5. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Knicks, Heat win, can start thinking showdown

    Apr 23, 2012, 8:06 AM EST

    Tristan Thompson, Amare Stoudemire

    What you missed while figuring out why ice cream causes brain freeze… Lakers 114, Thunder 106 (2OT): There was a game, too, not just an elbow. The Lakers got a win that can give them some confidence for a potential playoff meeting between these teams — but can they replicate this recipe for success? Our…

  6. Tyreke Evans is not cool with how the Kings have handled him

    Apr 22, 2012, 9:00 AM EST

    Tyreke Evans

    SI.com reports: Tyreke Evans‘ agent, Arn Tellem, made a rare appearance tonight to express his concerns about the former Rookie of the Year’s role. He met with Kings basketball president Geoff Petrie, Evans’ brother, Reggie, and another Tellem rep as well. Source close to Evans says he’s frustrated with how marginalized he’s become. Evans’ reps are…

    The drama continues in Sacramento as a late-week meeting between Kevin Johnson and the Maloof family re-opens discussions on a solution for the Kings to stay in their home.

  9. Report: Anthony Davis, other Kentucky stars to declare for draft Tuesday

    Apr 16, 2012, 8:48 PM EST

    Final Four Kentucky Kansas Basketball

    Not even the most die-hard Kentucky fan — say, Ashley Judd — really thought Anthony Davis or the rest of the top players on Kentucky were coming back for another year. That will become reality Tuesday when Davis (the lock No. 1 overall pick and likely franchise player) as well as Terrence Jones, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist,…

  10. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Lakers win fourth in a row without Kobe

    Apr 16, 2012, 8:09 AM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Los Angeles Lakers

    What you missed while going on Craigslist to try and find the guy who got you pregnant at that Motorhead concert…. Heat 93, Knicks 85: This potential first-round matchup proved that the Heat’s three stars — they accounted for all but 20 of the Heat’s points on the day — were better than the Knicks…

  11. With Sacramento arena deal all but dead, Stern says league has done all it can

    Apr 13, 2012, 4:15 PM EST

    David Stern

    David Stern’s press conference Friday afternoon sounded a whole lot like a eulogy for the Kings in Sacramento. Stern said Friday afternoon following the two-day NBA Board of Governor’s meeting that a handshake deal reached All-Star Weekend to get a new arena built in Sacramento was basically dead. While he would not use that exact…

  12. Maloof press conference a how-to-guide for burning bridges in Sacramento

    Apr 13, 2012, 2:51 PM EST

    worried george

    That press conference was so George Maloof. The nearly 90-minute presser was everything a good old fashion PR nightmare should be. It started as a PowerPoint presentation delivered in monotone prose by Maloof attorney Barry McNeil, and ended in a classic George Maloof back-and-forth with media members that bordered somewhere between ‘desperate’ and ‘tirade.’ The…

  13. Kevin Johnson to Maloofs: There will be no negotiations during critical Friday meeting

    Apr 13, 2012, 8:58 AM EST

    NBA executives, Mayor Johnson, and Gavin Maloof meet

    I wrote on Thursday about the recent developments in the Sacramento Kings arena situation, and namely the Maloofs’ recent actions that amount to a legal full court press designed to land the franchise in Anaheim. The quick and dirty to catch you up is this – the Maloofs, Sacramento, AEG, and the NBA came to…

  14. Report: Maloofs pitching against Sacramento at NBA Board of Governors meeting

    Apr 12, 2012, 3:46 PM EST

    team maloof with stern

    Here we go all over again. It was around this time last year that the Maloofs stormed angrily out of the NBA’s Board of Governor’s meetings, rejected and dejected after they were told they couldn’t go to Disneyland. Today, they returned to New York to pitch the idea that they were somehow wronged during the…

    What you missed while hiring a nude maid service…. Knicks 111, Bucks 107: In a must-win game for both teams, the Knicks got the stops and gutted out a win that likely sends them to the playoffs.

  16. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Celtics smack Heat around. Again.

    Apr 11, 2012, 9:19 AM EST

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat

    What you missed while eating a pizza stuffed with hot dogs in the crust (no, that does not come with a free side of angioplasty)… Bulls 98, Knicks 86: Derrick Rose missed another game — that is now 23 this season — but the Bulls were the better team and got the win in our…

  19. Blake Griffin’s response to DeMarcus Cousins calling him an actor: “You have to consider the source.”

    Apr 8, 2012, 2:30 PM EST

    griffin-cousins

    There’s a weird sort of rivalry brewing between the Kings and the Clippers, that, on the surface, doesn’t seem to make much sense. While L.A. has two current All-Stars and is likely to be a top-four seed when the playoffs begin in a few short weeks, Sacramento is a perennial lottery team with a couple…

  20. Quote of the Day: CP3 responds to Cousins calling Griffin an “actor”

    Apr 7, 2012, 5:42 PM EST

    Demarcus Cousins

    Via ESPN.com’ s Justin Verrier: CP on DMC comments: “We won. He lost. We competing for the playoffs. He’s not. That happens in this league.” Clippers point guard Chris Paul, responding to Kings forward DeMarcus Cousins‘ statement that Blake Griffin is an “actor” who gets “babied by the league.” The Kings and Clippers will face each…

  21. Cousins fined $25,000 for saying officials love Blake Griffin

    Apr 6, 2012, 6:27 PM EST

    DeMarcus Cousins, Derrick Favors

    Everyone, including DeMarcus Cousins, should have known this was coming. Cousins criticized the officials, saying they and the league plays favorites with Griffin, and the league doesn’t like it when players suggest the league plays favorites. Of course we all know that doesn’t happen (*cough*). Cousins was fined $25,000 by the league for his comments…

  22. Blake Griffin the actor: playing a chicken on Sesame Street

    Apr 6, 2012, 1:33 PM EST

    Blake Griffin

    Someday James Lipton is going to pull out one of his little blue cards to ask Blake Griffin about this performance, where his motivation really came from. DeMarcus Cousins thinks he knows — he thinks Griffin is an actor and plays a little too much chicken on the court, too. I like that Griffin and…

  23. Cousins accuses Blake Griffin of being “actor,” faking fouls

    Apr 6, 2012, 9:56 AM EST

    Blake Griffin, Chris Paul

    DeMarcus Cousins and Blake Griffin were banging on each other pretty hard Thursday night in what Kings coach Keith Smart called a great football game. But Cousins was the one who ended up in foul trouble, playing just 18 minutes due to it (while Griffin had a double double and even hit key jumpers late).…

    In a story with many chapters, it’s fitting that the book on the Maloofs’ future in the NBA will be written on April 12-13 at the league’s Board of Governors meetings. After all, it’s where the tide turned for Kings fans last year, as Kevin Johnson came out of nowhere with both the will and…
