NBA.com article on the kings by Scott Howard Cooper
"With DeMarcus Cousins and a solid offseason in tow, the Kings can finally start to crack a smile"
"The decisions in the draft (Robinson) and free agency (Brooks) were direct hits for two positions in need of upgrades, power forward and point guard"
That's a good beginning. The problem is, the Kings remain behind despite several years head start on most of their playoff-challenged opponents. They can't shoot, don't get stops or rebound on the defensive end and lack the intangibles of leadership and coaching stability. They need a lot more than a beginning."
"They remain an organization in search of stability in every way. The roster gains have been excruciatingly slow for a fan base that wants to fall in love again. Management and coaching has offered little reason to believe lately."
