I will always root for Sacramento Kings fans, as a Utah Jazz fan

I will always root for Sacramento Kings fans, as a Utah Jazz fan

Even if I’m not crazy about some of your players. I don’t specifically root for guys like Ron Artest or Peja Stojakovic or DeMarcus Cousins. I wasn’t a fan of Reggie Theus as a player. Doug Christie had too many off the court things going on with his wife to be someone I would fight people over (but he was a good Raptors player in his day and I’ve seen him play live quite a bit). But overall, I wouldn’t consider myself a Sacramento Kings fan. After all, they were responsible for knocking out the mighty Utah Jazz from the playoffs — ending a valiant run by Stockton and Malone for...

Utah Jazz vs Sacramento Kings Overtone: 2011 NBA Draft

Utah Jazz vs Sacramento Kings Overtone: 2011 NBA Draft

How the Jazz might look today if Kings had not drafted Jimmer Klay Thompson’s 60 point game this week was a reminder of how well the Warriors have drafted over the years to get their team to where it is now. Sometimes, good fortune is the result of another’s misfortunes or mistakes. That was the case in the 2011 draft. The moves of both the Milwaukee Bucks and the Sacramento Kings on that night changed the superstar landscape of the NBA. In an article this week by Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski we were reminded that the Milwaukee Bucks were considering drafting Klay Thompson at the...

Kings vs Jazz Preview: Searching for Wins in Salt Lake City

Kings vs Jazz Preview: Searching for Wins in Salt Lake City

After yet another close Kings loss, Sacramento heads off on the road for a game against the injury depleted Utah Jazz. After a 103-100 loss to the New York Knicks, a game in which Sacramento proved they can still find new ways to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory, the Kings have set out in search of victory and settled into Utah to take on the Jazz. In what now must be a recurring nightmare for Jazz coach Quin Snyder, this entire first quarter of the season has been about injuries to the starters for Utah. While absolutely crushed with injuries, the Jazz have still maintained a record...

Utah Jazz vs Sacramento Kings: Game Preview

Utah Jazz vs Sacramento Kings: Game Preview

Can the Jazz field a healthy lineup? No. Will DeMarcus Cousins throw a fit? Probably. Tonight, the Utah Jazz (14-10) welcome the Sacramento Kings (8-14) to The Viv for the first time this season. For the second straight time in the Jazz’s current 5-game home swing, they welcome a team coming in on the back end of a back-to-back. The Kings fell to the New York Knicks in Sacramento last night 103-100. Since it was a close, highly-contested game last night, the Kings should be nice and tired coming into this game. Which is good, because the Jazz are still the walking wounded. As you’ll see...

Knicks 103 - Kings 100: Melo from the other side

Knicks 103 - Kings 100: Melo from the other side

The Kings can’t seal the deal in another close one. The Kings had multiple opportunities to gain an important boost in the win column tonight, but missed shots and poor execution down the stretch caused them to let a victory slip from their grasp. For the second game in a row, Dave Joerger entrusted the starting shooting guard position to Ben McLemore. The kid from Kansas shared the court with the usual lineup of Collison, Gay, Cousins, and Koufos and didn’t disappoint with a 10 point (4/7 FG, 2/2 3PA) 5 rebound, and 2 assist outing. The first quarter, like much of the game, was a...

Kings vs Knicks Preview: Knicks Come into Sacramento for a Rematch

Kings vs Knicks Preview: Knicks Come into Sacramento for a Rematch

The Kings are looking to avenge their loss in New York five days ago as they take on the Knicks in Sacramento tonight. After drubbing the Dallas Mavericks on Wednesday night to the tune of a 31 point margin of victory, the Kings have come home for a quick stop to take on the New York Knicks before heading back out on the road to play the Mavs yet again. With a game against the Knicks only five days ago, in which the Kings were down by 20 points before a massive scoring streak brought the Kings to within two points with less than three and a half minutes to play, Sacramento players should...

DeMarcus Cousins and Matt Barnes are being sued over their involvement in December 5th nightclub ‘brawl’

DeMarcus Cousins and Matt Barnes are being sued over their involvement in December 5th nightclub ‘brawl’

The “he said, she said” game is officially ON. Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last several days, you’ve probably heard by now that DeMarcus Cousins and Matt Barnes ran into a bit of trouble in New York City on December 5th following their loss to the Knicks. TMZ’s original report - Sacramento Kings star Matt Barnes is wanted by NYPD for questioning after he allegedly choked a woman inside a nightclub early Monday morning -- and TMZ Sports got video of him right after the incident. Law enforcement sources tell us cops got a 911 call to Avenue Nightclub after...

120 Kings, 89 Mavericks: Sacramento tramples hobbled Mavs

120 Kings, 89 Mavericks: Sacramento tramples hobbled Mavs

A 29-12 third quarter gave the Kings a lead they’d never relinquish against the injury-riddled Mavericks. In a game that seemed prime for a KANGZ moment, Sacramento saw the talent disparity between themselves and the Mavericks, developed a comfortable second half lead, and… never KANGZed it up. Starting against the likes of Salah Mejri and Dorian Finney-Smith, DeMarcus Cousins and Sacramento (8-13) took advantage of Dallas’ lack of size (and talent) in the post; Cousins finished with a team high 24 points to go with 14 rebounds and seven assists, and the Kings scored 68 points in...

Kings vs Mavericks Preview: Looking to End the Road Trip with a Win

Kings vs Mavericks Preview: Looking to End the Road Trip with a Win

The Kings will try to end their road trip on a high note as the take on the injury plagued Dallas Mavericks. With Sacramento’s six game road trip finally coming to a close, the Kings are in Dallas Wednesday night to take on a Dallas Mavericks team who very much look like they’ll miss the playoffs for only the second time since the turn of the millennium. Injury plagued and just plain old, the Mavericks will be without franchise cornerstone Dirk Nowitzki, starting center Andrew Bogut, back up point-guard/Hobbit JJ Barea and will also probably be without the greatest shooting guard to...

Cross your fingers, Willie Cauley-Stein is starting to show some improvement

Cross your fingers, Willie Cauley-Stein is starting to show some improvement

Small sample size disclaimer aside, Willie Cauley-Stein is finally contributing. The Sacramento Kings have given us plenty of depression fuel over the course of the last decade, but I don’t know if I’ve been disappointed by any single bit of ‘Kings nonsense’ over the last six or so months than Willie Cauley-Stein’s lack of development. It started in Vegas during summer league, and it’s been a downward spiral for Cauley-Stein since. Until now. Kind of. Sort of. Maybe? Hopefully? Let’s get one thing clear, I’m rooting for Cauley-Stein’s development. I’m looking for...

Matt Barnes, DeMarcus Cousins involved in altercation at New York City club

Matt Barnes, DeMarcus Cousins involved in altercation at New York City club

TMZ is reporting that Barnes is wanted by the NYPD for questioning following his role in a nightclub altercation that involved at least two women and a man. As I’m sure many of you have heard by now, TMZ is reporting that there was an altercation at a New York City nightclub last night in which Matt Barnes was identified as the assailant, allegedly choking a women during an argument and punching two other people who tried to intervene. DeMarcus Cousins may have been involved in trying to break up the fight as well although details at the time are scarce. In the video released by TMZ,...

Knicks 106, Kings 98: Another Comeback Falls Short

Knicks 106, Kings 98: Another Comeback Falls Short

The Kings can’t overcome a huge first half deficit. Stop me if this sounds familiar; The Kings fell behind early in the game and a massive push by a combination of starting and bench players couldn’t quite overcome the gap. After trailing by at least nine points during the first quarter in the past four games, the Kings actually started pretty well. Sacramento built a 15-10 lead behind DeMarcus Cousins’ packed stat line of 8 points (2/4 FG), 1 rebound, 1 assist, 1 steal, and one block as well as Rudy Gay’s three steals in the first six minutes. Every player seemed to be...

Kings vs Knicks Preview: Sacramento looking to take a bite out of the Big Apple

Kings vs Knicks Preview: Sacramento looking to take a bite out of the Big Apple

The Kings travel to New York to take on Carmelo Anthony, Kristaps Porzingis, Derek Rose and a Knicks squad that is starting to come together. After another frustrating loss, in which the Kings were in in till the very last possession, the Kings travel from Boston to New York City to take on the Knicks. Coach by Jeff Hornacek and owning the best record in the Eastern Conference since November 12th (7-3), the Knicks are a good mix of veteran talent and young up-and-comers and are looking to make a playoff run for the first time in three seasons, so don’t expect them to take the Kings...

The Yetisburg Address: 2016-17 Week Five

The Yetisburg Address: 2016-17 Week Five

Sacramento’s bench has given the Kings a lift, but the team’s overall late game execution has lost the Kings some games they might have won otherwise. The Kings started off their road trip well with an impressive win against Brooklyn, but stumbled late against both the Wizards and Celtics. They probably would have beat Philadelphia, but the 76ers floor started preemptively weeping at the thought of a Kings whupping and wouldn’t stop in time for the game to start. The High Post Sacramento’s bench unit has started to come alive this year. Guys like Garrett Temple, Omri Casspi and Ty...

Kings fall apart late, lose to Celtics 97-92

Kings fall apart late, lose to Celtics 97-92

The Kings really could have had this one. The Sacramento Kings started tonight’s difficult road game in Boston with their oft-criticized, rarely efficient DeMarcus Cousins – Kosta Koufos frontcourt, and early returns were what they have been all year. The Celtics got off to a hot start, built up a double-digit lead, the Kings looked a step or two slow, and left it up to the bench unit to drag the team back into this one. Stop me if you’ve heard this before. Credit to the Kings’ bench, because that is exactly what they did. Dave Joerger brought in Ty Lawson, Garrett Temple, Omri...

Kings vs Celtics Preview: Kings leave Slip-n-Slide in Philly, hoping for real basketball game in Boston

Kings vs Celtics Preview: Kings leave Slip-n-Slide in Philly, hoping for real basketball game in Boston

Sacramento is in Boston this Friday to take on the Celtics and former standout Kings point guard, Isaiah Thomas. After a game against the Philadelphia Sixers was postponed due to court conditions, the Kings found themselves with an extra day of rest before heading to Boston to take on the Celtics. Led by former Kings point guard, and now All-Star Isaiah Thomas, the Celtics are currently fifth in the Eastern Conference and looking to make some noise against a Kings squad that should be plenty rested for this game. To any people working in the TD Garden who might be reading this right now:...
