From David Thorpe: Cousins starting to get it

David Thorpe follows the rookies of the NBA closer than anybody. He's updated his Rookie Rankings and DeMarcus Cousins is shooting up the charts: This is the point, however, in the overall story. Cousins can still be a mess from game to game. He may have the worst body language in the NBA, overreacting to everything, ... More

Clarifying some things with Paul Westphal.

After another tough loss last night, Sacramento Kings Coach Paul Westphal gave some insight into what he feels will be the Kings offensive identity going forward.  The quote has gone national, but unfortunately the question did not.  Here is the question and the answer so you have a slightly broader sense of the conversation:
John Dickinson (KHTK 1140):   Coach, we’ve talked about it and people have asked - should we get the ball to Cousins more, should we get Tyreke shots, even Francisco.  What do you see going forward as the identity of this team on the offensive end?  Is it inside out?  Is it Tyreke?  Is it a combination?  It seems like there are stretches of good in all of that and there have been stretches going away from all of that.
Coach Westphal: Our identity is if we can get out in the open floor and get an early shot, a quick shot, off a miss or off a turnover, we want to do that.  We want to push the ball up the floor, we want to swing it from side-to-side.  If there’s a low post man, we want to throw him the ball and run splits.  We want to swing the ball from side-to-side if there’s not a low post man. We want to give Tyreke chances to slice and cut into the post more or come off pick and rolls.  We want to space the floor.  We want to hit the first open man and then run our sets.  We have basic things that we can run depending on the way that our players are positioned.  We have different keys.  We need to read each other and read those keys.  If the defense takes away one thing, you go backdoor and try to go to the next option.

Put Cousins on the block and let him be a bully

There were things about Chris Webber that drove me insane. Rarely do you see such potentially imposing post presences with that much ball skill like we did with Chris Webber. His legendary suction cup-action hands, his great vision, anticipation and passing ability, and his post game seemed more than capable of allowing him ... More

Kings acquiring Jermaine Taylor for 2nd round pick

Our good ole friend 2nd round pick is no longer with the team according to Marc Stein's Twitter account: A little quick scouting report on Jermaine Taylor: The rim should press charges on him or get a restraining order against him, because he attacks it constantly. Jermaine is not the shooter the Kings need by any ... More

It's done! He's out for a while. He was asked how long Tyreke would be out and he ... More
