Raley Field Sellout Crowd Joyously Greets the Giants

San Francisco Giants fans know one thing — 2016 is an “even” year. With World Series titles coming San Francisco’s way in 2010, 2012, and 2014 — and not even a playoff appearance in the other “odd” years — the anticipation for the coming season has been at a fever pitch. That excitement came to […]

Does Kings Coach George Karl Belong on the Hot Seat?

Ten years of futility have put tremendous pressure on the Sacramento Kings organization to turn things around. This will be the 10th year in a row the Kings have missed the playoffs. If current form holds true, it will be the 7th year out of the last 8 where the team has lost at least […]

Can the Kings Win With DeMarcus Cousins?

There are two prevailing schools of thought regarding DeMarcus Cousins. One is that he is an outrageously skilled, 25 year old, two time All-Star who is still a year or two away from his prime.

Sac Republic FC Opens 2016 With Two Losses — But There’s a Catch

A pair of one-goal losses to open any season might usually be a cause for concern, but in the case of the Sacramento Republic FC — not so bad.

If Kings Can Find Consistency, Playoffs are a Realistic Possibility

Inconsistent [in-kuh n-sis-tuh nt] 1. Lacking in harmony between different parts or elements. 2. not consistent in principles, conduct, etc. If one word could detail the Sacramento Kings 34 games into their 2015-16 season, you’d be hard pressed to find one more appropriate than inconsistent. The team’s frustrating Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde act can best be encapsulated by the […]

Is the 2015-16 Sacramento Kings Season Lost? Not Quite Yet

The more things change, the more they stay the same. A Hall of Fame coach installing his system and philosophy since training camp, a completely revamped roster, a new President of Basketball Operations serving as architect and steward of the franchise, countless team building activities throughout the off-season.
