From the streets of Compton to the shining lights of the NBA

The career of a professional basketball player is constantly judged through statistics, but for Sacramento Kings’ shooting guard Arron Afflalo, his NBA journey began by not becoming another statistic in the city of Compton, California.

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...

Rajon Rondo on Bulls offense: ‘Perfect system to be great in’

Rajon Rondo believes he will be a great fit within the Fred Hoiberg’s Chicago Bulls offense. “It’s more of a read-based offense.

I try to be two or three steps ahead of my guy, my opponent. So it’s a perfect system to try...

Rajon Rondo signs two-year deal with Bulls

Many thought Rajon Rondo’s career would end in Sacramento, and that the effort wouldn’t be there from the now-30-year-old point guard, myself included, but those people were very wrong.
