What is it about lousy California NBA owners dreaming too big?

The Kings have a superstar talent in DeMarcus Cousins. Before he tore his Achilles, Rudy Gay provided Sacramento with decent production and blunt assessments of the franchise. And then, if you asked Kings owner Vivek Ranadive, Russell Westbrook somehow enters the picture.

Kevin Arnovitz of ESPN:

One league insider says Ranadive told him some months back that he aspires to assemble a big three in Sacramento, with Russell Westbrook joining Cousins and Rudy Gay.

There’s nothing wrong with aspiring to add Westbrook. Every team in the NBA would love to have the MVP candidate.

But it’s important for teams to realize their place when building. Aiming too high can result in falling completely flat.
