While it might have been a difficult year for the Kings record wise, the Kings organization (and Monarchs) continue to impress when it comes to off the court activities – especially when it involves the fans.
Kings Vice President of Business Communications Mitch German, as well as other members of the organization, have made themselves very available for fans and bloggers throughout the season and off-season, taking the time to listen and communicate. As not only a blogger for the Kings, but as a basketball blogger in general, I’ve communicated with all 30 teams before, many times, and I can honestly say with no bias that the Sacramento Kings organization has always extended a helping hand to me, and done so with a smile. Unfortunately, I can’t say that about other teams. It makes me proud to be a Kings fan.
With all of that said, Mitch (who is also a panelist on the “Access” panel at Blogs With Balls) was a special guest on Blogs With Balls Radio today, which you can download here.
Mitch and the rest of the organization have worked incredibly hard to involve local King bloggers (something I can atest to), as well as fans to really make their impact felt in the community. They’ve done a wonderful job.
Here is a piece from the interview:
“We have just recognized through observing this space that there’s some blogs in Sacramento that work hard and that cover the team…There’s a lot of interaction, there’s a lot of comments, a lot of fans are loyal to those sites and really as an organization our philosophy is that we want to be where our fans are We don’t expect to hold everyone hostage and make everyone come to Kings.com for what they want.”
