I've watched the Kings since 1986 (didn't get into them the first year). I've moved around a lot since 1995--San Luis Obispo, San Francisco, Florence Italy, Vancouver BC, Boston...but Sacramento is still my hometown where my family still lives. I'm in friggin Los Angeles currently, starting my MFA program at UCLA. There's gotta be some Kings fans around here somewhere!

Sacramento Kings, How they looked before the NBA

Hoopshype does their thing with the Sacramento Kings players. Isaiah flashing two 'W' signs...is that "West-SYYY-ed!" or "Washington!" or "Widowwolf!" ?

Crown Downtown's 2013: A Year in Review

+

Crown Downtown has an AMAZING archive of the past year, including the Virginia Beach and Seattle affairs. There are numerous clips collected from TV, twitter, online blogs, etc. from Virginia Beach, Sacramento, Seattle, etc. Warning: this might bring back some of the queasiness you felt when you first heard of the "Done Deal".

R.E. Graswich and the stolen election

6

I found this link through a friend on Facebook. It is about the arena and the anti-arena claims of "stealing the election". I think it is worth a read, especially since some of us are getting a bit nervous about petition numbers.

Sacramento Planning Commission presentation

Thanks to Crown Downtown for posting this on Facebook. I hope the link works. It's from KCRA's site. This is really exciting. They are doing some really cool things with the outer wall of the arena that create windows from the intersection of the reverse curves. The final image is really drool-worthy.

Who would be your dream pick for the Kings at the next draft?

19

I know it is hella early, but some of us are probably keeping an eye on next year's draft prospects. This link to Sports Illustrated includes video clips for you to perform your eye tests for these players. :) Again, I know--hella early. Go Kings! Let's win the next game!

Home Opener!

Gonzokings

I got my tickets in the mail today! Overpriced nosebleeds from stubhub, but I'm fine with that. Also, if you go to Kings.com, the front page says individual tickets are now on sale. They list the home opener game, but I've heard from a rep that they'd be hard to get. So good luck if you need it!

Rhythm and Rims this Sunday

Is anyone planning to attend this? I'm too far away to make it, but it sounds like a it will be a fun day, with lots of present and former Kings and a Monarch.

Kings articles in Pacland

4

Everyday I check Pacland, a boxing site dedicated to Manny Pacquiao. Here is an article they have at PhilBoxing. There's nothing new/revelatory in it for us Kings fans. I just thought it was interesting that a boxing site in the Philippines has Kings news. Sacramento Kings are going global! woo!

Nice read over at Kings.com with the Kings new Director of Athletic Performance.

Tickets for Season Opener--Don't delay.

9

For those of you who can't afford Season Tickets or partial-season plans, you may want to try buying your ticket very soon on Stub-Hub. (I don't live in Sacramento, so I can't buy Season Tickets or a partial plan) I called the Kings ticket office through Kings.com and was told that I probably wouldn't be able to buy a single ticket for the home opener because it is in high demand. So I went to Stub-Hub, as someone from StR (can't remember who) suggested buying from them. I paid about $90 for each of two tickets for nose-bleeds, section220 rowP. Make sure you get yourself a ticket to the home opener. I think it is going to be something really special. Don't wait before it is too late. The URL I provided is a link to the home-opener Stub-Hub page, Kings versus Nuggets, Wednesday, October 30th.

Thank KJ.....(Dominic's idea)

1

I just found this in a comment on CowbellKingdom.com Dominic C. of Sacramento came up with a great idea and website for fans to upload written messages or videos to thank Mayor Johnson. (Sorry if this has been posted already, and sorry if Dominic is here on StR and wants to make his own fanshot of this. I just wanted to make sure the info gets passed along.)

Another Sacramento Song

Laura Kincanon. I like this better than the Middle of the Road song.

Sacramento Kings History

Found this video on youtube (posted by ChrisLango1)

L.A. has that dumb Randy Newman song, but I don't know of any Anaheim songs. Heck, even Sacramento...

L.A. has that dumb Randy Newman song, but I don't know of any Anaheim songs. Heck, even Sacramento has a song! By the way, the drummer in this video is sporting a Mickey Mouse shirt. We should do a remake with the "slash through the Mickey" logo. And shoot it on the American River instead of wherever the hell it was shot.

yeah, this is a frickin lousy job of editing. i just had to scramble and throw something up...

yeah, this is a frickin lousy job of editing. i just had to scramble and throw something up quickly after reading about all the negativity he throws at Kevin Martin. is it possible to trade commentators to other teams?

Kings Fans +Tyreke and Omri

4

Not sure if this was posted already. Its Elie Seckbach, the Embedded Correspondent with a short video that includes Tyreke and Omri, and some Kings fans in Sacramento. Despite Elie covering the L*kers here in LA, he's a great guy who gets fun interviews with players and fans.

Finished classes for the quarter and wanted to finally try this. I remember someone making a joke...

Finished classes for the quarter and wanted to finally try this. I remember someone making a joke about this in one of the threads. Hopefully it hasn't been done already.
