NBA: Remembering The Greatest Show on the Court

The new look Sacramento Kings featured newly acquired Vlade Divac, Peja Stojakovic, rookie Jason Williams, and All-Star Forward Chris Webber. In their first...

Time for some Spanish Chocolate?

It was probably some day nearing the summer of 1999. A teenager from the Canary Islands is quite probably glued to the tv set watching some NBA game late at night. 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...

Kevin Martin, Rick Adelman, and the Wolves’ Outlook

Kevin Martin started his career fighting for playing time with the Sacramento Kings in the mid-2000s, a team that had established wing stars in Peja Stojakovic, the then-Ron Artest, Bonzi Wells, Mike Bibby, and Shareef Adbul-Rahim. Needless to say, Martin was under no pressure to become ‘the man’ or really even ‘one of the men’ ...The post Kevin Martin, Rick Adelman, and...

Ben McLemore’s jersey change hints at Kings retiring Peja Stojakovic’s number in the future

The Kings have been an historically awful NBA franchise but they did have one era of relative greatness that deserves recognition. Sacramento appeared in the playoffs for eight straight seasons from 1999-2006 under head coach Rick Adelman and played an exciting style of basketball centered around the passing of big men Chris Webber and Vlade Divac and around the stellar shooting...

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. His performance, combined with our hyperbolic here and now journalistic tendencies nearly caused a riot on the Internet. Since it was not merely good enough to proclaim that Curry is a great shooter – or maybe even the best shooter...

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. I grew up about an hour away from Sacramento as a young kid obsessed with basketball, specifically the Sacramento Kings. I watched countless games on TV, but I preferred to listen to them on the radio outside in my driveway so I could shoot around as I listened...
