The Sacramento Kings and the Playoff Push

Bobby Jackson. Doug Christie. Mike Bibby. Chris Webber. Names from NBA’s yesteryear were remembered fondly during their heyday. They battled a burgeoning LA Lakers dynasty led by Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O’Neal and almost broke through. But the Kings came up short in Game 7 of the 2002 Western Conference Finals. They have not been […]

Kings Talk: Moves to Make Before the Trade Deadline

Well, now that the NBA is in full mid-season mode (and as the trade deadline approaches), it is becoming easier to see the cream rising to the top. And the Kings aren’t in it.

Another week of Rockets’ basketball down… this time without off the floor embarrassment. The Houston Rockets finished the week 2-1 after two big wins against the Sacramento Kings and a tough loss against Dallas.

Before the season started, I previewed the Kings season and, let’s be honest, I was pretty downtrodden. Luke Walton had yet to show true coaching acumen and the team didn’t improve in free agency.

The last time the Kings made the playoffs was in 2006. Fourteen seasons. The second-longest playoff drought in the NBA is the Phoenix Suns, who made it in 2010 with Steve Nash at the helm.
