25. Sacramento Kings

So, everybody spent all summer joking about just how crazy the Sacramento Kings would be, and it turns out they lived up to the hype. Rarely, if ever, has such a combustible squad of players been put together, but underneath all of that, they’ve had their good moments too.

There’s evidence of George Karl embedding an identity in Sacramento. He’s pushing pace, he’s looking to outscore the opposition, and at the very least it’s bringing out strong performances in his players. Rajon Rondo looks as good as ever, and when healthy DeMarcus Cousins is still in the mix for best center in the NBA. They’re never boring anyway.
