Is DeMarcus Cousins Better Than Chris Webber Ever Was?

Among mere mortals not named Steph Curry, nobody can single handedly devastate an opponent and fill out a box score like DeMarcus Cousins. With his […]

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 […]

Most Valuable Player (to his team)? Look No Further Than DeMarcus Cousins

In this continually evolving era of advanced statistics and analytics, there are various splits and methods to acquire statistical data. A team’s record at home versus away, a team’s performance on one day’s rest versus two, games played on the West Coast versus East Coast, etc. But the Sacramento Kings need only one: their record with and without […]

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. All of these ostensibly fit the narrative […]

Rajon Rondo Holds the Keys to a Playoff Seed for the Sacramento Kings

Of the thirty franchises in the National Basketball Association, it is perhaps our very own Sacramento Kings that have been the most arduous to predict how their 2015-16 season will unfold. On one hand you have an organization that seemingly can’t get out of it’s way, hasn’t been a playoff participant in nearly 10 years, and […]

Kings Starting Lineup

Who Will Start for the Sacramento Kings in 2015-16?

With the Sacramento Kings opening their training camp this week, there will be no shortage of story lines and intrigue abound. How will Rajon Rondo fit? Can Willie Cauley-Stein make a difference right away? How is George Karl and DeMarcus Cousins’ relationship? Is Darren Collison 100% healthy? But perhaps the most compelling item to keep an eye […]

Sacramento Republic FC Scoring Drought Ends 2015 Season

A second United Soccer League title in two years – or a repeat of last year’s “Miracle at Bonney” against league rival Los Angeles – wasn’t in the cards for Sacramento Republic FC Saturday night. The end was ugly. After Sacramento ended on the wrong side of the 1-0 quarterfinals playoff game, several LA Galaxy […]

Sacramento Republic FC Opens 2015 USL Playoffs at Bonney Field Saturday

Sacramento looks to begin its defense of last year’s United Soccer League crown with a rematch of last year’s “Miracle at Bonney” against in-state rival LA Galaxy II. In a semi-final playoff match last year, Sacramento, led by Midfielder Rodrigo Lopez’s hat trick, rallied from a late 2-0 deficit to pull off the stunning 3-2 […]

The 2015-16 Sacramento Kings: Change is Good (and Necessary)

As the Sacramento Kings closed the curtains on another disappointing season last April, the franchise was keenly aware significant changes had to be made. Since the moment Vivek Ranadivé saved professional basketball in Sacramento as we know it, change has been the one constant. It has been musical chairs in and around the Kings’ front […]

River Cats End Disappointing Season on High Note

The Sacramento River Cats wrapped up their 2015 season Monday on a positive note, pummeling the Albuquerque Isotopes 11-0 at Raley Field behind a combined four-hit shutout by Nik Turley and Matt Cain. The 2015 season was the first as the Triple A affiliate of the San Francisco Giants, who are defending their 2014 World […]

Colorado Springs Goalkeeper Too Much for Sacramento

An onslaught on Colorado Springs Switchbacks goalkeeper Devala Gorrick wasn’t enough to prevent a 1-0 Sac Republic loss Saturday night at a sold-out Bonney Field. Gorrick withstood an 11-3 shot on goal advantage by Sacramento as Colorado Springs (12-7-2, 38 points) shut out Sacramento to move into first place in the United Soccer League’s Western […]
