The Kings Did What They Do Best
Late into Sunday night, a major heist took place. The criminals wore mask and New Orleans Pelicans shirts. The victims of the crime are a former NBA Center masquerading as an General Manger and a very confused owner. The item stolen was one All-Star Center who averages 27 points and 10 rebounds per game. The Center was last seen hanging out with Anthony Davis. So if you’ve seen this stolen Center, please contact the Sacramento Kings.
Now if there’s any trade that should be stopped for basketball reasons, it’s this one from last night. The Sacramento Kings traded away the league’s best center for Buddy Hield, Tyreke Evans, Langston Galloway and its first-round and second round pick. That loud smacking sound you’re hearing around the nation are the other 28 NBA GMs slapping themselves. If Cousins can be traded for so little, every team in the league should’ve put their name in the hat. This trade is probably for the best considering the Kings were wasting Cousins career and the Pelicans desperately needed to get Davis some help. We’ll see what the two can do on the same team. With a few pieces, this team should be a threat in the future. But before we get ahead of ourselves, let’s look back at all the Kings draft picks in the Boogie era:
Isiah Thomas (60th Overall): A good pick that Cousins actually enjoys playing with!? Lets trade him and watch him become an all-star somewhere else.
Thomas Robinson (5th Overall): Picked ahead of Damien Lillard and traded before the conclusion of his rookie season.
Ben McLemore (7th Overall): Still hasn’t developed into the quality NBA guard the Kings thought they were getting.
Nik Stauskas (8th Overall): Drafted a shooting guard last year? Why not draft another one with a similar playing style as the guy you already have?
Willie Cauley-Stien (6th Overall): Your franchise player is already a center? Better use a top-10 pick to draft another one.
Enjoy New Orleans Boogie!
