Don't expect the Kings to consider trading DeMarcus Cousins anytime soon

Another year, another disappointing season.  Yes, the Kings won 29 games, their most in five seasons, but this team was supposed to do much more, especially after a 9-5 start to the season got everyone's hopes up.  Instead, here we are with the season over and once again watching 16 other teams in the playoffs and refreshing ESPN's mock draft lottery simulator. Desperate times often call for desperate measures, and for a fanbase that has been through as much as ours, that means leaving nothing off the table.  Head coach George Karl added a little fuel to the fire as the season ended with...

Top 5 Sacramento Kings stories of the Week

Everyone's future is in doubt this preseason as the Kings are still in need of some major change, but there's at least one free agent who hopes he stays in Sacramento.  Omri Casspi told Cowbell Kingdom that he loves it in Sacramento and has told his agent as much. The Kings beat the Lakers twice this week to end the season, trumping last season's win total for the highest win total in five seasons.  They also helped make this the worst season in Lakers history in terms of winning percentage.  That's always a plus. The Kings said goodbye to Sim Bhullar and re-signed guard David Stockton...

The best moments of the 2014-15 Sacramento Kings season

The season is over, so let's take a moment to celebrate the highlights. Another Sacramento Kings season is behind us, and we can begin the annual joys of the offseason. We've got a lot to look forward to. How far will the Kings fall in the draft lottery? Who might they draft? Which free agents might be signed? Which players might be traded? So much to look forward to, even if we know that each of those steps may bring new frustrations. But before we begin looking forward, let's take one last look back. I've lamented many aspects of the past season at great length, and it is not my...

Kings 122, Lakers 99: Like Christmas in April!

NEVER COUNT OUT THE SUMMER LEAGUE CHAMPS It doesn't really matter that the Sacramento Kings were playing the D-Fenders, not the Los Angeles Lakers, tonight, its always fun going south to Staples Center and coming out with a win. In a roller coaster season that Kings fans would like to forget as soon as possible, the Kings finished off the ride with an utter dismantling of the ruinous roster the Lakers currently call their own. Unfortunately for the Lakers, their D-League roster went against basically the same squad of players that walked out of Las Vegas last year with the prestigious...

Lakers vs Kings final score 122-99: Jabari Brown explodes for 32 in Lakers 61st loss

Jabari Brown set a new career high of 32 points as the Lakers cruised through one final blowout loss on their way to the offseason. The Los Angeles Lakers fell to the Sacramento Kings 122-99 Wednesday night in one of the more meaningless games, if not in NBA history, than certainly in Lakers' history. With rookie sensation Jordan Clarkson shelved with an ankle injury, there was little of note on the court to watch as the Lakers failed to avoid their worst record in franchise history. The Lakers injury problems led to them attempting a zone defense for much of the first quarter to mitigate...

Bringing stability to an unstable kingdom

The Sacramento Kings players, front office and fans need some stability. Is Vlade Divac the one who can provide that? He thinks so. Stability in the household for a child is important. Stability at the company one works for is reassuring and lends itself to better work performance. In fact, any relationship at any age in most settings is better off with a sense of stability. That was the message about the Sacramento Kings organization from veteran Carl Landry after Monday's final home game. "I think in any relationship consistency and stability is the main thing. When I come home from work...

Lakers vs. Kings preview: The regular season's grand finale

The end has arrived. The Los Angeles Lakers' journey through the muck at the bottom of the NBA comes to an end tonight as they play their regular season finale against the Sacramento Kings. All good things must come to an end, which means all bad things do too, right? Right?! The city of Los Angeles will have the chance to send this team off, hitting the Staples Center floor to wrap up an incredibly disappointing '14-15 season. If the DeMarcus Cousins and Rudy Gay-less Kings beat the Lakers for the second time in a row, this team will not only have the most losses in franchise history, but...

Watch Kings vets pull the popcorn prank on Nik Stauskas... with a twist

"Nik house clean!" Not so much anymore after DeMarcus Cousins, Rudy Gay and Reggie Evans covered Nik's home in a veritable deluge of popcorn. It's been tradition the past few years for Kings rookies to get their cars filled with popcorn, all the way since 2009 when Bobby Jackson got then Kings rookie Jason Thompson. And last year the McRookies got the popcorn treatment: But Nik Stauskas still doesn't have a car or a license, so the Kings vets went for the next big thing, his home. It's nice to see the team still having fun with another even as a nightmare of a season winds down.

Kings players describe season as a 'unique' 'roller coaster' ride

The Kings discuss their season, which was equipped with a hot start start, three coaches and the final result of another 50-plus loss campaign. The Sacramento Kings have one more game left Wednesday against the Los Angeles Lakers, but the finality of this lost season was all around Monday in the team's last home game. With major organizational and roster decisions ahead, the team's 28th win felt less like a celebration and more like a time of reflection about how it ended up like this - the hot start the Kings had back in November now feels like a decade ago, after all. Head coach George...

Lakers vs. Kings final score: Lakers limp to 102-92 loss

The Lakers and Kings were both forced to use unorthodox lineups thanks to injuries, which resulted in a night of ugly basketball. When the final whistle mercifully sounded Sacramento walked away with the victory. Even worse, the Lakers may have lost Jordan Clarkson, who sprained his ankle twice while attempting to play all 48 minutes. With just two games remaining in the season the Los Angeles Lakers limped into Sacramento for a matchup against the Sacramento Kings.  With Wesley Johnson and Dwight Buycks lost for the season due to injury (we have said that way too many times this year),...

Kings 102, Lakers 92: Kings run past Lakers in Fourth

Kings beat the Lakers? Today was a good day Yay! While it is Game 81 of another lost season, its still the Los Angeles Lakers, and its always fun beating those guys. The Sacramento Kings played the Lakers evenly for three quarters of the game, but turned on the jets when it counted and buried their Southern California foes down the stretch to win 102-92. That being said, that game was ugly. How ugly? This is the basketball equivalent of your grandparents getting it on. You're welcome. — Bradley Geiser (@therealbradg) April 14, 2015 Yeah, good luck getting that image out of your...

Kings assured at least the 6th spot in the NBA Draft Lottery

The Sacramento Kings are once again living on a prayer (and a ping pong ball).  Their loss on Sunday to the Denver Nuggets assured them of finishing with no worse than the 6th worst record (yippee?) even if they win their final two games against the Los Angeles Lakers. The 6th spot in the lottery offers a 6.3% chance of getting the number one pick and a 21.5% chance of landing in the top three overall.  There's also a 43.9% chance of staying at 6th, 30.5% chance of dropping to 7th, 4% chance of dropping to 8th and just a 0.01% chance of dropping to 9th (cue the "so we're drafting 9th...

Kings 111, Nuggets 122: Counting down the days

If the Kings lose a game in April and nobody cares, did it actually happen? Hang in there, Sacramento Kings fans. The season is almost coming to its merciful end. And with this loss to the Denver Nuggets, the Kings are all but assured the sixth slot in the NBA Lottery. Now, whether the lottery odds are kind or not is another question. Today's score of 122-111 is rather irrelevant, even with George Karl's return to Denver as a minor side storyline. The Kings, as has been the case in the past few games without DeMarcus Cousins and Rudy Gay, have relied heavily on Omri Casspi and Ben McLemore...

Kings vs. Nuggets Preview: Short-Handed Kings Look to Finish Strong in George Karl's Return to Denver

With just three games left, the Kings look to finish the season strongly as they take on the Denver Nuggets in the Mile High City. In George Karl's first game back in Denver since he fired back in 2013, he looks to make them (further) regret their decision. With two teams playing for nothing but pride and ping pong balls, George Karl's return to Denver against the Denver Nuggets looks to be your typical late season lottery team match-up, complete with injuries, rest, and combinations of both. The Sacramento Kings will once again be without Rudy Gay, DeMarcus Cousins, and Darren Collison,...

Thunder vs. Kings, 116-103: Oklahoma City gets back on track against Sacramento

The Thunder pick up their first win in April, keeping their playoff hopes alive. Box Score | Sactown Royalty recap After a grueling stretch of playing four Western Conference playoff teams to start the month, the Oklahoma City Thunder had been in a funk coming into this game. Having lost 6 of the last 7 games and watching their playoff hopes start to slowly fly away in the form of a Pelican, this turned into a must-win for the Thunder. However, a Sacramento Kings team playing without stars DeMarcus Cousins and Rudy Gay in the lineup was just what the doctor ordered and OKC took full...

Kings 103, Thunder 116: That'll do

The Kings obviously had no chance to win this game, but played hard and as well as can be expected The Sacramento Kings are still without DeMarcus Cousins, Rudy Gay, and Darren Collison (well, and Eric Moreland), so expectations are about as low as they've been all season. They mustered up enough effort to meet those expectations tonight, against playoff hopeful Oklahoma City Thunder, but were obviously outclassed to a final score of 116-103. The Kings were led in scoring by Ben McLemore, who was able to score 20 points on 17 shots. Ben was 4/10 from three point range, which is a solid...

Rudy Gay's offseason goal is to find what Kings organization wants from him

The players on the Sacramento Kings have been through a lot this season. Rudy Gay says he is getting George Karl's system down, but still hopes to find out what the organization wants out of him this offseason. The players on the Sacramento Kings have been through a lot this season - they are in the midst of their third system under their third coach after all. Rudy Gay says he has head coach George Karl's system down "mentally," which is progress from January when he felt "lost" under Tyrone Corbin. But he is still hoping to get some direction on what the front office wants out of him...
