On Monday night, the Sacramento Kings and Golden State Warriors did battle, all-California style. With 5:30 left in the second quarter, a banner fell from the scoreboard at the newly named Sleep Train Arena (no, that's not a joke) in Sac-town that fluttered its way down towards midcourt. Kings head coach Keith Smart ran on to the hardwood to pick up the fallen banner, and nearly slipped. The banner's brother remained attached to the scoreboard -- for the remainder of the game anyways. Check out the photos below to see the mishap in Sacramento.  Photos via screen grab/NBA League Pass

Kings 94, Warriors 92

Keith Smart saw a black tarp that covered an advertisement fall from the scoreboard above center court and ran out to grab the piece of plastic while his Sacramento Kings played defense on the other end. Officials whistle the play dead, and Smart sprinted back to the bench like a running back holding a football, drawing roars from a rare sellout crowd. While Sacramento's aging...

Some old dude wore blackface to a Sacramento Kings game last night

The Sacramento Kings held a “blackout” promotion for their home opener last night, giving away free black shirts and glow sticks to fans to celebrate the opener. Unfortunately, this clueless old guy thought the”blackout” promotion gave him permission to wear blackface. Yikes…this might have been acceptable back in his day, but the times have changed. Might want to read...

Golden State Warriors- Stephen Curry Extension Grade

The Deal-  4 years- 44 million When healthy, Stephen Curry is an elite offensive weapon. However, the healthy part has been an issue the last two years. Regardless, the Warriors got a steal at only 11 million a year for their best player. He is perfectly capable of posting over 20 points per game and dishing out 7 plus assists per game, while shooting at a very efficiency rate....

Warriors-Kings Preview

The Sacramento Kings have made strides defensively from last season, but the winless team needs to be much better offensively as well. The Kings look to avoid their first 0-4 start in four seasons in Monday night's home opener against the Golden State Warriors, who are seeking their first 3-0 road start in 18 years. With the Kings ranking last in the NBA last season in scoring...

David Lee Yells at Blake Griffin to 'Stop Flopping' During Warriors-Clippers Game (Video)

The NBA is trying to enforce flopping this season, and David Lee is apparently willing to become the league's "goon." During Saturday night's Warriors-Clippers game, Lee took some offense to Blake Griffin "acting" like he was getting pushed a little harder than he was. Mid-way through the fourth quarter, after Jamal Crawford drained a...

Kings beat Warriors 94-92 but probably should have lost anyway....

Heh. I mostly write obtuse and silly titles to amuse myself. Otherwise, what's the point? That said, sometimes with young dumb teams ugly wins are about the best you are going to get. And, well, an ugly win that was far too difficult and came down to two missed shots by Steph Curry and Klay Thompson are a tough way to get victories. Against the top tier, it won't happen....

David Lee Tells Blake Griffin During Game To “STOP FLOPPING!”

I would like to personally thank David Lee for telling Blake Griffin what I wish I could tell him at least 20 times a day. During a Clippers and Warriors game on Saturday David Lee took exception with one of Griffin’s many flops and had about enough. He yelled at Blake to stop flopping, and though we can’t hear it via the audio, and it is fair to say that you don’t have to...

David Lee to Blake Griffin: Stop flopping! (Video)

Blake Griffin takes his share of abuse each game, but he also has a reputation for acting and overselling contact. Perhaps it’s his defense mechanism against the pounding he takes. During Saturday’s Clippers-Warriors game, Golden State forward David Lee decided he’d had enough. As you can see in the video above, Lee yelled at Griffin to “stop flopping” during the fourth...
