Isaiah Thomas and Jimmer Fredette are platooning as the Kings' backup point guard.
Although the 2012-13 NBA season is currently on its way to the mid-point, the 2012 calendar year is coming to a close and we here at A Royal Pain (along with the rest of the FanSided network) wanted to reflect on the best moments of the 2012 year.
For the purple and black loyalists, it’s been a trying time. Between poor on-court play, a disastrous ownership and the emotional roller...
Hot damn, this is what many expected the Denver Nuggets to look like this season — including myself — and it finally happened; albeit it was the Sacramento Kings, but hell, this was artistry in motion. Denver — finally — played to all of their strengths: athleticism, running, committed to defense, and the offense — [...]The post Denver Nuggets Coast Past Sacramento Kings...
Here's a newsflash: The Kings aren't very good. Why? Their pieces are still mis-matched, their pieces still don't work except on paper and in the land of misfit toys, Keith Smart doesn't really seemingly get the most out of his pieces when they are going well, and well it's hard to figure out exactly what pieces are going well in all reality, and oh yeah the chemistry...

For the second day in a row I am leading in with a player from the Sacramento Kings. Yesterday it was Isaiah Thomas, today it’s Tyreke Evans, he of the knee bone problem that may force him to miss “an extended period of time”. Drats! Apparently the guy can’t move around too well and you do need to move around a little bit to play the basketball. Sooo, where does that leave...

The Phoenix Suns won all three meetings versus the Sacramento Kings last season despite being unable to contain DeMarcus Cousins.
Cousins has excelled against the Suns throughout his career, something he'll hope to continue as the visiting Kings try to end a four-game slide Monday night.
This is the first meeting in 2012-13 between the worst teams in the Pacific Division, with...
PHOENIX -- Losing at home to the Sacramento Kings wouldn't have been the end of the world.
If certain interpretations of the Mayan calendar are on the money, the end of the world will show up on Friday.
But it was only Monday night and the Phoenix Suns were busy making sure they avoided losing to the second-worst team (by record) in the NBA's Western Conference.
