+Read full article

Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports

Isaiah Thomas was very happy in his first two NBA seasons with the Sacramento Kings. One could imagine how elated he is that the Kings are staying in Sacramento.

Thomas has had two outstanding years in Sacramento. The place has been good to him and vice versa. Being able to play a third season with the same team and in the same town will be very satisfying for Thomas, who had very little desire to move to Seattle.

The Kings actually made some strides on the basketball court this season with Thomas playing a key role.

Among the reasons the fans are thrilled the Kings are staying is the presence of Thomas. He is an exciting player to watch with various moves to the basket and his popularity will even grow next season.

Thomas finished his second season at 13.9 points per game, two rebounds per game and four assists per game. He was at 26.9 minutes per game and shot 44 percent from the floor, and a sensational 88.8 percent from the free-throw line. He creates his own shot and is a threat every time he has the ball.

As a rookie in the NBA, Thomas was at 11.5 points per game, 2.6 rebounds per game and 4.1 assists per game, plus an average of 25.5 minute. He shot 44.8 percentย  from the floor and 83.2 percent from the line.

Imagine what happens if Thomas gets better. Kings fans are thinking about that right now. It’s among the reasons they’re happy the Kings are staying. Thomas has a chance to lead the Kings to the NBA playoffs next season and Sacramento fans are thrilled at that prospect.

Rondo Perfectly Guesses Atlanta's Final Play

Say what you will about Rajon Rondo, but there's no way to deny that he's an incredibly smart basketball player. Last evening against the Atlanta Hawks, the Sacramento Kings were up by three points with 1.9 seconds left, and Atlanta had one final possession to tie things up. Rondo immediately recognized the play the Hawks had drawn up and directed DeMarcus Cousins to an empty space on the floor where the Hawks were planning to send a player to take a three. Rondo's smarts made the Hawks botch the play, and the Kings held serve for the win.

Watch Kings' Rondo Attempt To Trip Mavs' Williams

Last night's game between the Sacramento Kings and Dallas Mavericks was one of the most entertaining of the season. It was a back-and-forth contest that ended on a Deron Williams three-pointer as time expired in double-overtime. Unfortunately, Williams almost didn't get to take that shot as Rajon Rondo attempted to trip him from the bench earlier in the game which could have caused serious injury. Rondo should be suspended for his actions.
