There should be rules against throwing a game

The outcome of the Kings’ game with the Houston Rockets could have affected their spot in the draft lottery. That’s why DeMarcus Cousins, Rajon Rondo and Darren Collison did not make the season-ending two-game trip and were ordered to stay home and “rest.”

There should be rules against throwing a game

Re “Season boils down to how to shield pick” (Sports, April 13): It’s disgusting to me how the Kings and Vlade Divac would purposefully throw a game by having three players stay home instead of traveling with the team to Houston. Rudy Gay had it right when he said simply playing for pride is fine with him. Obviously, Divac has lost his pride.

It’s the final game of the year, DeMarcus Cousins, Rajon Rondo and Darren Collison should be traveling with the team – where’s their pride? Management thinks they are too tired and wants them to rest. Maybe I’m wrong, but I thought there were rules against throwing a game.
