Sacramento Kings

  1. Sacramento Kings to Anaheim more than rumors; fans push back

    Feb 24, 2011, 6:02 PM EDT

    Sacramento Kings v Los Angeles Lakers

    Things are dire in Sacramento. Mayor Kevin Johnson (yes, that Kevin Johnson) said yesterday that the talk about the Kings moving to Anaheim was more than just rumors. Then today we learn that the Kings owners asked for, and likely will be granted (by a vote of the other owners), an extension past the March…

  2. Dwight Howard rips Magic after ugly loss to Kings

    Feb 24, 2011, 12:18 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Chicago Bulls

    I’m not sure what the low point of the season will be for the Orlando Magic will be, this may be like the LOST island where every time something impossible happens you think it can’t get crazier. Then you’re proven wrong. And Hurley becomes the voice of reason. But the Wednesday night Magic loss to…

  3. Video: Dwyane Wade can hit literally any shot

    Feb 23, 2011, 2:29 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers  v Miami Heat

    Dwyane Wade, basketball magician. As proof, we submit this video from last night’s Heat destruction of the Kings. Falling, flip it up and it falls. Pretty much, that’s how the entire night went for the Heat — whatever they did worked and the Kings stood around looking dumbfounded.

  4. Kings trade Carl Landry to Hornets for Marcus Thornton

    Feb 23, 2011, 1:11 AM EDT

    Carl Landry

    Feb. 23, 1:11 am: This is official, the two sides have agreed to terms and all that is left is for the league to give the trade it’s stamp of approval in the morning. Friend of the site Sam Amick of FanHouse confirms this. Feb. 22, 11:19 pm: Carl Landry was held out of the…

  5. Tyreke Evans out at least three weeks after foot procedure

    Feb 22, 2011, 3:50 PM EDT

    Sacramento Kings v Los Angeles Lakers

    You know that shock-wave thing your uncle had to break up his kidney stones a decade ago? That’s pretty much what Tyreke Evans had done to his left foot today. And that’s going to keep him out at least three more weeks, according to a tweet from Marc Spears at Yahoo. Evans has been battling…

  6. Tyreke Evans has another MRI on foot, will sit out Tuesday

    Feb 22, 2011, 8:10 AM EDT

    Tyreke Evans

    After sitting out All-Star weekend, Tyreke Evans foot was still bothering him to the point that he had another MRI done, and is visiting another foot specialist in Los Angeles. That means he will miss Tuesday night’s game against the Heat, according to a tweet from Jason Jones of the Sacramento Bee. This will be…

  7. Tyreke Evans to miss All-Star Rookie Challenge, Harden in

    Feb 17, 2011, 2:11 PM EDT

    James Harden

    Tyreke Evans has been battling plantar fasciitis — a foot condition where if feels like someone is ramming a knife into your heel with every step, something that tends to hamper you hoop game — all season long. He missed the Kings game Wednesday because the only real cure for this is rest. Along those…

  8. DeMarcus Cousins to rejoin Kings, be fined for fracas

    Feb 14, 2011, 4:43 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Sacramento Kings

    UPDATE 8:17 pm: The amount of the fine was one game’s salary for Cousins (about $41,000), according to Sam Amick at FanHouse. So, the Kings say it wasn’t a suspension, but he sat out one game and was docked one game’s pay. Hmmm. If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck…. 4:43…

  9. Kings Omri Casspi has a bill named after him in Israel

    Feb 14, 2011, 2:47 PM EDT

    Sacramento Kings v Phoenix Suns

    Right now, an Israeli citizen living abroad cannot vote in Israel’s election. You want to vote, you have to be in the country. (For comparison, any United States citizen living abroad, no matter how long, can vote by absentee ballot.) That impacts Omri Casspi, the Sacramento Kings forward who is the first Israeli in the…

  10. DeMarcus Cousins suspended (even if that’s not the word they use) by Kings

    Feb 13, 2011, 3:00 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Sacramento Kings

    DeMarcus Cousins has literally been everything people said about him prior to the draft. He’s been a hothead. He’s been a star. He’s been a beast. He’s been a huge pain in the neck. He’s been brilliant. He’s been a bonehead. The works. Tonight the pendulum has swung to bonehead, and the repercussions for Cousins’…

  11. Bill Walton, ghost of Jerry Garcia will in fan’s half-court shot

    Feb 10, 2011, 8:22 AM EDT

    bill+walton

    Like many teams, the Sacramento Kings run a promotion where a fan gets a chance at a half-court shot to win a bunch of money (or a trip or whatever). Wednesday night a Kings’ fan nailed it. Why? Because Bill Walton was courtside and summoned the spirit of Jerry Garcia on Grateful Dead night at…

  12. Is DeMarcus Cousins abandoning his strengths?

    Feb 7, 2011, 5:58 PM EDT

    DeMarcus Cousins

    Joe Treutlein of Draft Express thinks so: To say Cousins has undergone a dramatic role change in the NBA would be somewhat of an understatement. At the college level, Cousins was a dominant player in a variety of ways, utilizing his massive size, strength, and length to punish the opposition on the glass and finishing…

  13. Massive Midwest snowstorm strands Celtics in Sacramento

    Feb 2, 2011, 3:16 AM EDT

    Image (1) Celtics_Logo-thumb-250x278-12853.gif for post 6268

    UPDATE Feb. 2, 3:16 am: It’s official, they are stuck and spending an extra night in Sacramento. They will try to get home Wednesday. “We would have preferred to go further East, just so we can get closer to our time zone,” Celtics coach Doc Rivers said. “At the end of the day, we just…

  14. Cousins says Brian Shaw motivated him against the Lakers

    Feb 1, 2011, 7:29 PM EDT

    DeMarcus Cousins

    DeMarcus Cousins is one of the most talented rookies in this year’s draft class. He’s also one of the most mercurial, and his play has been inconsistent throughout this season. However, the lightbulb seems to have gone off for Cousins recently: after the Bobcats held him to 9 points on 2-8 shooting on January 15th,…

  15. Kobe Bryant moves to 8th all-time scorer, hits 21 in 1st, 1-5 clutch in loss

    Jan 29, 2011, 10:00 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    Last night was just a big night for Kobe Bryant in general. You might even say it was a rollercoaster of emotions for him. Perhaps a rollercoaster of love. Maybe not. By the end of the night he’d hit another amazing career milestone, had an insane first quarter display, a disappointing end, and a loss.…

  16. Tyreke Evans will play against the Knicks tonight

    Jan 14, 2011, 6:37 PM EDT

    Tyreke Evans

    According to Jason Jones of the Sacramento Bee, Kings guard Tyreke Evans will play against the Knicks tonight. Evans, who has struggled with Plantar Fasciitis, has missed the last three games with a sprained ankle. Evans has played 31 games so far this season, and averaged 17.2 points and 5.4 assists on 39.3% shooting in…

    John Wall

    What you missed while planning to be one of the Joker’s henchmen… The Cavaliers historically bad performance against the Lakers is our Anti-Game of he Night. The Hawks hosting the Bucks was postponed due to snow and will be played on March 15. Wizards 136, Kings 133 (OT): This was more roller coaster than basketball…

  18. Sacramento Kings to play in “Power Balance” Arena

    Jan 11, 2011, 7:53 PM EDT

    Image (1) arco-thumb-250x140-20914.jpg for post 4291

    Well, the arena in Sacramento is older, but starting next year we know it’s less likely to fall over. Maybe. Sactown Royalty broke the story (later confirmed by the team) that as of next season the ARCO Arena will be known as the Power Balance Arena. ARCO had a 25-year naming rights deal that will…

  19. The NBA’s Anaheim Kings? Come, connect the dots with us.

    Jan 10, 2011, 7:16 PM EDT

    honda-center-of-anaheim

    With the latest stadium deal now dead in Sacramento, it doesn’t take much to get people in certain other markets dreaming of the NBA in their home town. Pictures of DeMarcus Cousins dominating in the paint and Tyreke Evans getting treatment for plantar fasciitis in their city fill the minds of young children with NBA…

  20. Games of the night: Dallas has injuries, what was Denver’s excuse?

    Jan 7, 2011, 8:09 AM EDT

    Kevin Durant dunks

    Before the season, if you peaked ahead on the schedule, this looked like an interesting Thursday night of basketball. Turns out, not so much. Thunder 99, Mavericks 95: Dallas has the much-discussed injuries to Dirk Nowitzki and Caron Butler. The effort is still there and while this is a deep team, there are limits to…

  21. If Kings make trade, saving money will be motive

    Jan 6, 2011, 9:44 PM EDT

    Sacramento Kings v Phoenix Suns

    At $44 million, the Sacramento Kings have the lowest payroll in the NBA this season. Still, at the trading deadline they will be sellers with their primary motive is to keep costs down and preserve their cap space heading into the new Collective Bargaining Agreement, according to Sam Amick of FanHouse in a detailed post…

  22. Samuel Dalembert not happy with shrinking role, may seek trade

    Jan 6, 2011, 10:32 AM EDT

    Samuel Dalembert

    In the Sacramento Kings last three games, Samuel Dalembert has averaged 10 minutes and 3.3 points per game. That’s primarily because rookie DeMarcus Cousins is tearing it up — he has averaged 22.7 points on 55.8 percent shooting over that same three games. Cousins is playing well and Cousins is the future, so he gets…

  23. Kings talking trades for Omri Casspi, Carl Landry

    Jan 3, 2011, 9:12 AM EDT

    Sacramento Kings v Phoenix Suns

    Sure the Kings have the worst record in the NBA, but there is talent on that roster. The kind of roster and situation other GM’s are looking to exploit and pick over like vultures on a carcas. Some of that talant is not available — Tyreke Evans, DeMarcus Cousins — but some of it is……

  24. Video: Wild ending to Kings, Grizzlies game

    Dec 30, 2010, 8:16 AM EDT

    Tyreke Evans O.J. Mayo

    Best. Ending. Ever. (Or at least this season) If you watch one video this year… why? But if you did, this would be a dang good choice, with O.J. Mayo and Tyreke Evans making it a dramatic 5.5 seconds. Enjoy, and don’t say we didn’t get you anything for Christmas this year.  

  25. Baseline to Baseline recaps: The Grizzlies and Kings with the finish of the year

    Dec 30, 2010, 6:51 AM EDT

    Tyreke Evans Francisco Garcia Eugene Jeter

    What you missed while purchasing the iPhone bottle opener… Kings 100, Grizzlies 98: Two struggling teams that could use a win and it came down to this: Kings up 97-96 with 5.5 seconds left, no timeouts left for anyone. Memphis inbounds the ball from the sidelines to O.J. Mayo and runs a poorly-designed play —…
