08:11 AM ET 12.25 | Keith Smart sweats just about everything. He sweats the small stuff and the big stuff. He sweats about his young center's destructive behavior, the Kings' erratic performances and a collective body language that suggests his 12 players work for 12 different corporations. The one thing he doesn't sweat is his ability to do the job. ... Nonetheless, given the Kings' poor record (9-18) and an ill-defined style of play, questions about Smart's own stewardship have increased. Is he a capable head coach? Can he establish a team identity? And does he have the forcefulness and internal clout to discipline and nurture [DeMarcus Cousins], the gifted center who has been suspended three times this season?

Wrong. They've had a lot of player turnover. They've had a lot of coaching turnover. The only places they haven't had any turnover is the GM and the owners. They're the ones who put this team together. So they're the ones who need to be held accountable.
