Weekend poll: Should Kings center DeMarcus Cousins make the All-Star team?

Leading Off: 10 pressing questions in the world of sports

Published: Friday, Jan. 10, 2014 - 6:02 pm

• Even though the Kings have one of the worst records in the NBA, shouldn’t center DeMarcus Cousins, who entered Friday’s game averaging 23.5 points, 11.5 rebounds and 3 assists, be on the West team for the All-Star Game?

• If the Kings had acquired veteran point guard Andre Miller, 37, would he have started ahead of Isaiah Thomas – or alongside him?

• Miller is in his 15th NBA season, but doesn’t it seem like only yesterday that he had that great NCAA Tournament run as a junior at Utah?

• Everyone loves 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s swagger, but did you know he went 1-4 this season against teams still in the NFL playoffs?

• The Colts allowed the Chiefs to score 44 points and Alex Smith to throw for 378 yards, so what must the Patriots and Tom Brady be thinking?

• Jay Gruden is the Redskins’ eighth head coach since 1999, but if you’re a Washington fan, don’t you wish they’d hired his brother instead?

• When the NFL plays its first “Pro Bowl: Unconferenced” – a new format that eliminates conferences – on Jan. 26 in Hawaii, will anyone tune in?

• With the Opening Ceremony for the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, just 27 days away, when should we start caring about curling?

• During the Olympics, medals will be awarded in 15 sports, but can anyone name 15 athletes on the U.S. team (and, no, Lindsey Vonn won’t be there)?

• Former NBA player Dennis Rodman made a fool of himself again this week, but is that really newsworthy?
