Sacramento Kings’ Carl Landry Will Miss 3 Months, Hurting Team’s Frontcourt Depth

Kelley L Cox – USA TODAY Sports

The Sacramento Kings are in for a rough one. They are pinning all their hopes on DeMarcus Cousins, which to me sounds like a dangerous proposition to me. I love the versatility of Boogie’s Game, and even saw him drain a few three point shots in D.C. during one of the lockout games. It was the best D.C. sports day ever, because I saw that game in the afternoon (while managing to get m Wizards hat signed by Kevin Durant and John Wall), and then that night Stephen Strasburg was pitching for the Nationals which was my first time seeing him pitch in person. So do not get me wrong, I have huge affection for Boogie and his Kings but just do not quite like the team chemistry element with this squad.

They got some other bad news recently when Carl Landry was hurt, which I first noticed from InsideHoops so shout out to them.

Landry is an underrated player and could be a rotation contributor on a playoff team in the right situation. The Kings unfortunately are not that right situation especially in the Western conference where playoff spots are going to be hard to come by. If they can be the third best team in California then that is starting somewhere, but until “Boogie” Cousins shows the ability to lead a team while keeping a cool head then the question mark still hangs above this team’s head.

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.
