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...

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.
