What's with all the drama circulating among the acquisition of George Karl and DeMarcus Cousins interfering with that process?

Cause Cousins is done with Sacramento and all they do is make losing moves and he doesn't think Karl is a winning coach and he felt he's been loyal to Sacramento this whole time, but then when they finally were winning they got rid of the coach and now are looking to patch it up again to more losing in his mind. 


Cousins is sick and tired of being sick and tired :P  He felt they'd have had a winning year this year if not for the front office interfering with God's plan   :D

Lakers need to offer Jordan Hill now lol   :laughing:

George Karl can definitely make that team play plus 500 ball.

For Karl and Kings, issues are money, years and most obvious: Hard to agree with new coach when Ty Corbin dutifully works two more games.

if cousins wants to be traded. We should seriously purse him.

Would love to see him in.a lakers jersey. Plus he would explode as a player.

Good for Sacramento. Just really dumb that they waited this long though. Obviously this season is already a waste. Don't know why they decided to hang around with damaged goods in Corbin for so long. Heck if more, maybe it would've been better at this point that they just wait for the whole season to finish with Ty and then bring Karl in anew to start fresh. Not sure why they have to start him with this waste of a season. Clean slate would be better, but I digress.

That was a "tank" move from Sacramento.  They are hoping to land someone in the top 10 and just want to finish the season looking "fun" under Karl.  

If Malone was never fired then they'd be right there with the Pelicans, OKC and Phoenix fighting for the 8th spot.

Perhaps Malone didn't entirely deserve to get fired, but regardless, I have no doubt in my mind Karl should and will do better at the helm.

Cool. Now they'll be a team that perpetually flames out in the playoffs. I guess that's an improvement though.

Karl making a difference already. Kings whooping on the very good Memphis Grizzlies and Cousins is still in the game. Almost lost it completely earlier in the game, especially after Randolph landed two vicious elbows to his face and tried to punk him, but to his (Cousins) and perhaps Karl's credit, he surprisingly totally kept his composure.

Karl is great

Kings might be in competition for the 8th seed next year

Which basically means they are a top 10 NBA team
