The 9 most dysfunctional teams in sports (ranked!) – FOXSports.com
It took seven years, but Boogie finally broke the back of the Kings. Back in 2010, Sacramento took the temperemental Kentucky star at No. 5 fully aware he was a powder keg waiting to explode. They stayed by him through technicals, suspensions, attitude problems, stupidity, beefs with teammates, beefs with refs, beefs with announcers, beefs with George Karl and beefs (for some reason) with Tim Duncan, continuing to defend him, indulge him and declare their full support for him right up until Sunday night, when they gave him away to New Orleans in exchange for nothing more than some prospects and a pot of crawfish etouffee.
The last time Sacramento made the playoffs was in 2006, when the following players were on the team: Bonzi Wells, Corliss Williamson, Shareef Abdur-Rahim, Peja Stojakovic and the former Ron Artest. They drafted Jimmer Fredette over Klay Thompson and Kawhi Leonard. The best player the Kings drafted since Cousins was Isaiah Thomas, now the All-Star lynchpin of a Boston playoff team who was deemed unfit to lead the Kings. It’s not going to get any better, either. Owner Vivek Ranadive, the CEO of a infrastructure softwre company, seems to think he’s a basketball guy, and GM Vlade Divac appears to be in over his very-tall head.
