Only six games into the 2011-2012 NBA season, and already the Sacramento Kings are looking like a team that has completely lost the will to work and compete for one another. The front office needs to do something quick to recover what seems to be an already lost season.
DeMarcus Cousins' infantile trade demands have dominated the airwaves and the Kings' locker room, and his behavior since rejoining the team shows he is far from adopting an attitude of repentance.
Tyreke Evans has significantly regressed to start the season, something that shouldn't shock anyone. After all, the lockout was a perfect excuse to take some more time off for personal endeavors.
Geoff Petrie has put together a hodgepodge of talent, none of whom work well together as a group, and Paul Westphal seems to have already lost the pulse of his locker room.
So, what can be done to fix this mess?
