All right, release that thought (from Mystery Player A, ranked no. 32 in Part 1). Contrast these 2011-12 numbers … Mystery Player A: 29.4 MPG, 16.2 PPG, 11.4 RPG, 1.2 APG, 1.2 BPG, 43% FG, 73% FT, 21 PER Mystery Player B: 32.7 MPG, 16.4 PPG, 10.3 RPG, 2.5 APG, 0.6 BPG, 50% FG, 79% FT, 23 PER Slight edge to Player B, right? OK, so let's say Player B is a normal guy … and Player A is an unpredictable loose cannon who may or may not have just gotten his first coach fired a few weeks ago. Now which guy are you taking? Here's the point: Boogie Cousins gets more hype than Greg Monroe; he got drafted two picks ahead of him; his upside seems like it should be higher; he's more fun to follow; he has a better nickname; and he's always going to seem a little more overpowering when he has it going. In the Grantland headquarters, we've probably had 20 Boogie Cousins conversations and 135 moments where Jay Kang cackled, "I LOVE BOOGIE!!!!" I don't remember anyone discussing Greg Monroe even once. I'm not even sure half our staff knows what he looks like. Just know that Sacramento would flip Boogie for Monroe in a cocaine heartbeat … and if the roles were reversed, Detroit would hang up.

Stern also said he plans to meet with Sacramento mayor Kevin Johnson and the Maloof family, who own the Kings, on Sunday. They are facing a March 1 deadline to reach an agreement to finance a new arena. Without that, the team could be on the move. "By March 1 we hope to either have a deal or not have a deal by March 1. We don't hope not to have a deal, but if we don't have a deal by March 1, my guess is we won't have a deal," he said.

Steve Corkran: Hue Jackson to be named head coach "sooner rather than later"

4

According to Corkran's article, sources close to the organization as well as Hue Jackson say the hiring will be made official very soon, even if Hue Jackson hasn't officially interviewed for the position. In a corresponding blog post, Jerry McDonald (of the Oakland Tribune as well) expects the announcement to come after all NFL games are played. This would translate to an announcement coming late Sunday afternoon (on the West Coast) at the very earliest although, realistically, Monday or Tuesday would be a safer bet. This is huge news as it is important to get the coaching ducks in a row so the Raiders can get a headstart on the NFL draft. Perhaps more importantly, it will settle the staff so they can begin to focus on "re-recruiting" the multitude of pending free agents this offseason.

NBA Draft Grades by SBNation's Matt O'Brien--LeBron James and the 2010 draft class

1
"If you're LeBron James, does a young core of Eric Bledsoe, Eric Gordon, Al-Farouq Aminu and Blake Griffin interest you?" Really? I have heard this a lot--"Will this draft pick A help Team Z land Lebron James? Will Lebron be interested in playing for Team Y because they got this great college player?" Something tells me that rookies are the last players King James wants to play with. He wants to start a 3-peat dynasty right now. Rookie tend to have growing pains. I don't know, maybe I'm missing the boat, but this type of statement seems to miss the logic boat.
