Cousins on Kings: ‘I don’t really understand what’s going on’

Any hope that the drama involving Sacramento Kings center DeMarcus Cousins and his team would die down following the firing of George Karl can pretty much be thrown out the window. Cousins, one of the top all-around players in the NBA, is also one of the most divisive. His on-court and off-court actions since entering the league as the No. 5 pick of the Kings back in 2010 has made...

The Sacramento Kings aren't known for showing restraint. Instead, over the past few years, they've repeatedly self-combusted by mixing reckless ambition with short-sighted goals. Make the playoffs!
