KINGS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Sacramento Kings honor Chris Webber

Chris Webber was one of the keys to the Sacramento Kings success in the early 2000’s.  From 2001-2004 the cowbells were ringing – that’s a Phil Jackson reference from the heated Lakers vs. Kings playoff rivalries- Sacramento won 55, 61, 59, 55 respectively.  Those teams were led by Webber and Jason “white chocolate” Williams for a year (2000-2001) before the Kings traded...

Joakim Noah throws temper tantrum after foul on DeMarcus Cousins flop (video)

Joakim Noah is as emotional a basketball player as there is in the NBA. It’s never difficult to ascertain how exactly the Chicago Bulls center is feeling, for better or worse. And on Thursday night at Sleep Train Arena in a game against the Sacramento Kings, it was definitely for the worse.

Chris Webber’s Retired Kings Jersey is Dirty (Photo)

Chris Webber has his jersey hanging from the Sacramento Kings’ rafters as he contributes for the TNT broadcast and there is a little problem I spy with my little eye.

Why the Sacramento Kings are this year’s Phoenix Suns

You read that right. The 2014-15 Sacramento Kings will be this year’s version of the 2013-14 Phoenix Suns. What makes them so similar? Both teams had two stars people could rally behind and easily recognize. For the Suns it was their pair of guards in Eric Bledsoe and Goran Dragic, and for the Kings it is DeMarcus Cousins and Rudy Gay. While the guards only averaged 38 points...

How far can the Sacramento Kings go?

Nobody expected the Sacramento Kings to win 4 games in the first 5 games of the 2014-2015 season. The team was supposed to be stuck in the lottery for one more year at least.

Sacramento Kings create “Shaq Goes Pop” commercial

Shaquille O’Neal is really liking this minority ownership stake in the Sacramento Kings. The club released a parody ad starring O’Neal, advertising a faux album called “Shaq Goes Pop”.

Kings Troll Warriors By Playing ‘Full House’ Theme For Player Intros (Video)

It’s fair to say that the Sacramento Kings haven’t been relevant in the NBA lately after winning just 24 games last season and extending their playoff drought to eight seasons. But the team might have started a cool trend in the league this year by trolling the opposing team with cheesy music during player introductions. During their season opener against the Golden State Warriors...

Jason Thompson trade interest rising

The Sacramento Kings have been very active in trade discussions over the last couple of years, and they are still looking to move power forward Jason Thompson if possible. He is a talented bench piece, but the Kings have plenty of depth at the power forward position and he is simply too pricey for them to keep around with his current contract.
