It’s been a bad All-Star Weekend for the Sacramento Kings.
First, Tyreke Evans has to pull out of the Rookie-Sophomore game due to his problematic left foot. He also had to pull out of the Skills challenged in which he was apparently voted into.
Second, DeMarcus Cousins has a fantastic evening playing in the Rookie-Sophomore game, but is robbed of a should have been Co-MVP award by former Kentucky teammate John Wall and then is needlessly blasted on national television by TNT reporter Craig Sager.
Then we’re hit with this news from Marc Stein:
ESPN.com sources: Kings seriously weighing whether to file for move to Anaheim before March 1 deadline for next season
Some might question why the Kings would consider the move to Anaheim, but as somebody who lives in the greater San Diego area, I can easily say the Kings would capture a large fan base in the Riverside and San Diego county areas. That’s not to say they’d make any dent in the Southern California Laker fan base – but Southern California supports three professional baseball teams and does so pretty well, which is pretty amazing considering each team has 81 home games to fill up. And none of that has anything to do with the larger corporate opportunities the Kings would encounter.
Any way you attempt to slice this – it’s not good news.
