It’s Time For the Kings To Take Their Throne


Who would had thought that the Kings would be 8-5 right now? I don’t see a lot of people raising their hands. Hey, I don’t blame you, I wouldn’t be raising my hand either.

The Kings have had the talent to be playoff contenders in the past years, but too often, either injuries, cohesiveness, or uncertainty, has kept them in the Western Conference basement.

Now that the Kings’ future is firmly set in the capitol city, and the Kings finally have an identity, the Kings can now get on with the business of reclaiming their throne, and no better time to claim it than on a road trip that could make-or-break the Kings season.

The trip got off to a great start, with the Kings taking an easy win against the injury plagued Minnesota Timberwolves. But that was just a warm-up to what is to come.

Starting tomorrow night, the Kings will head to the Big Easy to take on the up-and-coming New Orleans Pelicans. DeMarcus Cousins will have his hands full with Anthony Davis, who is looking much like and MVP candidate.

If that wasn’t enough, the Kings will head to Texas for a two-game stint against the West’s two best teams. The first stop is in Houston, where the Rockets are strong at home, and Ben McLemore or Rudy Gay will have their defensive work cut out for them trying to stop ‘The Beard.’

  • And last, but not least, the trip will end in San Antonio, where the Kings will not have any time to take in the sights and sounds of Texas’ version of Orlando, as the defending champion Spurs will be waiting, and we all know the Spurs take no game lightly.

    So the Kings will have the potential to go 4-0, 1-3, or 2-2. I think the Kings can steal a game from the Pelicans, and with Dwight Howard still questionable, the Kings have the talent to steal a game in Houston as well.

    But asking the Kings to win a game in San Antonio….. That is too tough to ask.

    But it can be done, and If the Kings want to reclaim their throne on top of the West, this is the road trip to do it.
