Is Sacramento’s Early Season Success Sustainable?

Perhaps the biggest surprise of the NBA season thus far has been the success of the Sacramento Kings. While the season is still very young, the Kings have put together some very nice wins in the early stage of the year. Sacramento is 7-5 and currently in 9th place in the ridiculously competitive Western Conference. Is their success sustainable?  Sacramento has been one of the worst...

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. Webber’s jersey case is disgustingly dirty.

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.
