Sacramento Kings Fans Rally at Season Finale to Keep Team From Moving to Seattle

+Read full article

Wednesday might have marked the end of an era as the Sacramento Kings played what may have been their last game at Sleep Train Pavilion, a 112-108 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers. Fans of the Kings made their displeasure known, protesting the team’s seemingly inevitable sale and move to Seattle. That depends on the NBA owners and whether or not they decide to approve the relocation, Sacramento fans are doing everything they can to persuade the Kings to stay put.

A year ago, everyone at the Kings’ season finale cried their eyes out after a 116-108 overtime loss to the Los Angeles Lakers when the Maloof family was expected to move the team to Anaheim. Wednesday night was very different as fans seemed to have hope they could persuade the Kings to stay in Sacramento, although it’s already out of their hands, and really, never was in their hands to begin with.

The fans stayed long after the game was over Wednesday night, chanting various things like “we’re not leaving” and “here we stay.” After they finally went home, the Sacramento faithful took to social media to express their desire for the team to stay.

Kings fans actually do have hope as Sacramento mayor Kevin Johnson said in March that the team is likely to stay put, at least for one more season.

Rondo Perfectly Guesses Atlanta's Final Play

Say what you will about Rajon Rondo, but there's no way to deny that he's an incredibly smart basketball player. Last evening against the Atlanta Hawks, the Sacramento Kings were up by three points with 1.9 seconds left, and Atlanta had one final possession to tie things up. Rondo immediately recognized the play the Hawks had drawn up and directed DeMarcus Cousins to an empty space on the floor where the Hawks were planning to send a player to take a three. Rondo's smarts made the Hawks botch the play, and the Kings held serve for the win.

Watch Kings' Rondo Attempt To Trip Mavs' Williams

Last night's game between the Sacramento Kings and Dallas Mavericks was one of the most entertaining of the season. It was a back-and-forth contest that ended on a Deron Williams three-pointer as time expired in double-overtime. Unfortunately, Williams almost didn't get to take that shot as Rajon Rondo attempted to trip him from the bench earlier in the game which could have caused serious injury. Rondo should be suspended for his actions.
