The kid takes advantage of the long NBA breaks during games to grab some basketball and imitate some moves on the back yard and shoot some hoops.The team on the TV is probably the Sacramento Kings.

Sacramento Kings Fans Will Try To Break The Guinness Book Of World Records’ Record For Loudest Indoor Arena On Friday

Back in the late 90′s early 2000′s, when the Kings were one of the best teams in the league led by Vlade Divac, Chris Webber, Peja Stojakovic, and Mike Bibby, the Kings had one of the best home court advantages in the league due to their loud fans. During that time, I believed that aside from maybe Salt Lake City, Sacramento was the toughest place to play in the NBA. Small market...

Ranking the best shooters in NBA history

Two weeks ago, Stephen Curry capped off an amazing season by hitting his 272nd 3-pointer of the year, breaking Ray Allen’s seven-year-old NBA record.

Why A Kings Move From Sacramento Would Be A Travesty

I should start by saying that this is going to be a biased viewpoint, but keep in mind that doesn’t mean I’m wrong.
