Raymond Felton doesn't qualify for the list, he is on the stupid and most hated in the pacific northwest list.
4 days, 5 hours ago on Sunday Musings: A challenge to DeMarcus Cousins
Have there been other max contract players who act or have acted as immature as DMC? I can't think of any at the moment.
Here is an all star team DMC could make - all immature NBA team (current players only)
DMC - Kings
JR Smith - Knicks
Birdman - Heat
Immature 6th man Andrew Bynum
DMC, do you really want to be on this list? It's up to you.
Stephen Curry might have said it best. Referring to his coach, Mark Jackson, Curry said, "He let me go out and play, develop, be allowed to fail a couple of times and to work through my shortcomings." Mark Jackson was also a great point guard, rookie of the year, possible hall of fame player.
Sort of different type of coach than Jimmer had in the NBA.
5 days, 4 hours ago on A final conversation with Jimmer Fredette
So far these comments here are absurd...Kings are a "class act", "too many weaknesses", "too many guards". The problem were the Kings management not allowing Jimmer to develop and become the great player that he is still going to become, now elsewhere. The problem is the inability of simple minded people to not understand how good a talented player could be, and not know how to use those talents to develop a WINNING team. The problem was and still is the inmates running the asylum, players not rallying around a "different" type of player and become a real team of all for one, one for all, instead allowing jealousy factoring in when that player had shown any success at any time.
Changing the culture can be a bitch, but cutting out a great player is not the way to do it.

I have no doubt the Kings will win the game tonight. Cousins is back, and if they just breathe and put their hands up they will play better D than last night.
5 days, 17 hours ago on Game 59 Preview: Sacramento Kings vs. Minnesota Timberwolves
IT looks great tonight, BMc couldn't hit the broad side of a barn. Oh well, rookie growing pains. Unfortunately, Kings did not allow Jimmer the same courtesy, and it will come back to haunt them. Guess it's OK to suck on the offensive end, but not on the defensive end. Well, right now BMc is very bad on both ends.

@CowbellKingdom @TABDOG Thank you, he has always been over the top, way too personal, making JImmer fans appear inconsiderate, which I am nothing like that.
You (Jonathan and James) are class people, and am thankful you let me express my opinions here.

@civtalker Amazingly, JR did get away with pulling on Vince Carter's headband. Don't know why.
1 week ago on NBA suspends and fines DeMarcus Cousins for incidents against Houston Rockets
"it was a bad call; we knew that." WRONG! It was the right call.
"Can't really answer that, hope for the best." WRONG AGAIN!
He is the undisputed leader of the team. He HAS to have an answer for it, has to have a plan for it. Yells at refs, yells at teammates. Guess what? Just shut up, PLAY hard, and become a team CHEERLEADER. Anything else you have to BLOCK OUT!
Bottom line, when the FANS turn against you, then you better worry about your job. You may be right once in a great while, but no one is going to support your attitude over the long haul.
1 week, 1 day ago on DeMarcus Cousins addresses ejection against Houston Rockets
As Maximus says to Commodus, "Dear Kings, the time to honor yourself will soon come to an end."
Kings are playing a real team tonight. How is it going? How are your dear rookies doing?
They are in way over their heads.
1 week, 2 days ago on WATCH: Pete D’Alessandro on potential Jimmer Fredette buyout
Now that Jimmer won't get the opportunity to follow up his best game as a pro, all the idiots and haters come out of the woodwork to take their potshots. Back to the same old fiction - Jimmer's defense this, Jimmer's lack of athleticism that, pick your poison.
Well, I am an unabashed Jimmer fan, and think he has a boatload of talent, he has a skill set almost unmatched by most players, and he constantly shows it under extreme adverse conditions. He and everyone else knows what he constantly has to work on, and given the crap he has to deal with, he is coming out of it constantly improving. In fact, the NY Knicks game also shows, besides a deadly threat, he can be a great leader, the team followed HIS lead that game.
The Kings try to make him a nonentity. Jimmer refuses to succumb to that servility and mentality. He has ALWAYS responded with strength, always has scored in bunches when the team needed it, has never backed away from a challenge. That alone SHOULD earn him time on the court. Good team defense would help too, but the Kings are still infants at that aspect of the game.
The Kings know they are screwed this year at shooting guard (with the deal of not playing Jimmer there). BMc and McC are not the answer, not yet, and maybe will never be, who knows. BMc is at least another year away from being a decent starter, dribbles into traffic, not knowing how to get out of a double team, CAN'T or WON'T stay with a 3 point shooter. Just too young to handle his push by Malone. McC again just too raw right now. No offensive concept whatsoever. Yes he brings something different to the team than Jimmer, I'll take Jimmer all day over either of them.
Glad IT is doing well, and start figuring things out. Will his ego allow him to keep it up? (We will see what happens this summer.)
Kings think they can just throw away offensive talent like Jimmer. It will come back to haunt them. But worse, the organization acted in a criminal and negligent way, and the culture change has yet to occur.
1 week, 3 days ago on Will Jimmer Fredette see reduced minutes for the Sacramento Kings?
@mjmill Are they really going to bury Jimmer for that long?
1 week, 4 days ago on Road Reaction Postgame Show: Sacramento Kings at Denver Nuggets
And now the idiots come out.
@jespy I love Jimmer, but this is the NBA, and you're in fantasyland.
1 week, 4 days ago on Will Jimmer Fredette see reduced minutes for the Sacramento Kings?
I wonder what text message Malone sent to Jimmer this week. Any ideas? Maybe it's...
"Keep your confidence high, we still believe in you. We're sure you are going to play more than 3 minutes the rest of the year. Yes, that is a total of 3." (But we believe in you.)
1 week, 4 days ago on CK Press Box Report: Sacramento Kings 105, Boston Celtics 98
And please, they had to sweat it out till the end to in the game. IT was terrific.
It would have been so much more interesting to see how they would have played if the Celtics had their 2 best players on the court. They played well enough to win, would definitely have lost if Rondo and Sullinger were healthy.
So here we are, after all this time, STILL talking about DMC growing up. Over the summer DMC has to figure out how to change his negative attitude. He DOES want to win and make the all star team, doesn't he?
So what is left to say? The Kings reward Jimmer's best game as a pro by not playing him. It's just too embarrassing for Kings management to deal with this issue any more. They are trying to hide their criminal actions and their lack of morality and just hope nobody notices and the problem just fades away.
But these terrible organization (let's include the Knicks here):
1. Can't hide the obvious facts that their management is clueless
2. Don't care if they rake in the money
They allow their mega-money contract "stars" to hold the team hostage. Everything is for them, team is important but definitely secondary. How Woodson keeps his job is amazing, but the Garden sells out, so it doesn't matter. One of the worst run teams in sports is one of the most valuable, so who cares. The Kings are never going to be THAT valuable, so they need much better decision makers. Can they just throw away a talent like Jimmer? They think so. He made them their $$$ off the court, they think they owe him nothing.
I say they owe him (and everyone associated with the team) everything! I remember when Nate Robinson was buried on the Knicks bench, then one day he played and scored over 40 points. Well, he sure has had a decent NBA career, and I think he could have been better except he was (is) a head case.
So we, as fans of a quality player and person in Jimmer, will suffer the rest of this season. Too much to except the Kings to have a shread of decency in them and release Jimmer at this point. I expect Jimmer to work as hard as possible this summer to work on stamina and quickness drills, not bulk up drills which could negatively affect his shooting.If in the next two years he doesn't pan out, then all of us will apologize for wasting everyone's time.
BUT THAT IS NOT GOING TO HAPPEN1
IT played the way a PG is supposed to play...lots of assists, didn't overdribble, great hustle. Good to see he is taking the next step forward.
1 week, 5 days ago on Game 55 Preview: Sacramento Kings vs. Boston Celtics
Was Fredette on the bench tonight? I didn't see him there.
We have our answer. Jimmer = DNP rest of year, so why don't you just release him. That would end end any more controversy for the Kings, we all move on.
