The Best of the Worst of Times

Like many of you...most of you...I have been a fan of this team for a long, long time. Day one. Game one. Sacramento Kings. Weeping, screaming, dancing, running from packs of feral Lakers...

My Oracle Nightmare

Secret Santa, that's how we handle adult Christmas gifts in my wife's extended family. We don't need any more crap so we slim it down to a nice little exchange and post a wish list. That wish...

Holiday Glory: The Kings Player Book 2014

What can I say...no words will suffice. I opened up a present this Christmas and inside I found the most incredible book I've ever seen. Ladies and gentlemen, I had to share. COVER AND BACK...

Boogie Vs Paul: Yeah M*@&!*&@#!

11

Grantland takes a look at first the Bogut/Blazers fracas before serving some choice cuts from the growing heat between the DMC and Paul. I don't know how they could write a piece like this without the infamous Paul flop-sqeal GIF on display though! Come on Kings, bring those fools DOWN on Friday!

Boogie and Wall top Grantland's Favorite NBA Players list

4

From the article: "There are two types of basketball fans in this world — those who love DeMarcus "Boogie" Cousins, and those who are wrong. Players like Boogie make basketball more fun. If every big man were Tim Duncan, this sport would be awful. We love Boogie because we don't care about defense, don't care for authority, and don't care if he's a little out of control sometimes. DeMarcus Cousins would throw an elbow at Jesus Christ himself, and that's why he's so much fun. No, he has never put his massive skill set together for an entire season while unleashing hell on the NBA, but he has also been stuck in some awful situations the past few years in Sacramento. The takeover is coming, though."

Boogie hosts Kings Movie Night

Almost the whole team went out last night to a screening of the movie Don Jon (a comedy about a Jersey dude who's addiction to porn jeopardizes his relationship with a woman played by Scarlett Johansson - I know, this is a tough decision for the character) arranged by your boy DMC. This "unity" thing will never get old for me, I hope these good vibes keep ROLLING! (ps: #LoveForSignLady)

From Cowbell Kingdom. Just awesome. I am really pulling for Outlaw, he seems like a great guy.

Podcast: Simmons and Lowe debate Webber - Overrated or Underrated?

+

"They traded haymakers with the Lakers in that series." Great, sometimes painful stuff as Bill Simmons and Zach Lowe dissect C-Webb's career in depth. Simmons regular Joe house jumps in in the last 3rd to continue on.

Great Pete D'Alessandro Interview on KHTK

+

From this morning's CD & Annoying Dude show. PD is fantastic, a badly needed breath of fresh air. Nice job with the interview on CD's end. Talks DMC, Mullin, expectations ("We are going to be the hardest working team in the NBA"), Iggy debacle (a little bit, still mysterious), personnel, baldness, Sacramento Fans and where he will view games (not the tunnel, too short).

Let me explain to you what is going to happen at Sleep Train Arena on October 30th, 2013... and then let me show you exactly why. There are so many uncertainties surrounding this...

A whole lot of Kings in latest Simmons piece on Grantland

+

Today, Bill compares this offseason's activities to quotes from the 80's film Midnight Run with more than a few funny notes about previous ownership like: "What the Maloofs did to Sacramento basketball wasn't technically a crime … just a crime against everything sports should be about."

Ween Won't Help the National Media Understand that Fresh Vivek Feeling

I wake up each day and take a deep breath. Then I exhale. Then I do it again, maybe not as deep. Exhale again. And so on... you get the idea. I breathe. I take oxygen in, push out the CO2. ...

This is short but it's national radio y'all... gotta hand it to Grant. I know, but he represents. Of course there's also this KJ dude calmly taking care of BUSINESS. Scroll down to the Guests section, you can stream or download the Kevin Johnson link.

Grantland: Simmons and Lowe shred the T-Rob trade to bits

14

Simmons rants: "There were so many appalling things about that trade, but you just hit on the big one — the Kings gave up on a top-five lottery pick to save a little less than $4 million. It's the kind of trade that happens when your owners are broke. It's the kind of trade that would have happened in 1978, back when the league was struggling and they were showing Finals games on tape delay. You know I'm prone to hyperbole from time to time, but I truly believe this — that's the worst trade anyone's made in years. A lottery team giving up Robinson … I mean … it's unconscionable."

Maloof NBA.COM Bio - Updated Edition

I am losing my fucking mind. I just spent an hour of work time rewriting the Maloof Family bio page on NBA.COM. It must be some form of important therapy... or I'm falling apart at the seams. Both? FTM.

Respite from the Seattle Drama: Kobe Losing It

+

After all the torture, insult absorbing and Maloofery we have been enduring as of late (as our team hangs over a cliff) it is nice to relax and enjoy the collapse of the ultra-hyped Lakers "reboot." Some might say it is bad form to relish another's sorrow. To them I say, "It's the LAKERS! It's KOBE! SAVOR IT!!!"
