It has already been quite the season for the Sacramento Kings. They’ve fully established themselves as one of the NBA’s premier offensive groups and have an argument for being the best offense in the league.
Most importantly, the organization has gotten rid of the dysfunction that has lingered for so many years. This season they have two all-stars in De’Aaron Fox and Domantas Sabonis. They also have Keegan Murray who is currently chasing a rookie record of his own.
Things are just good in Sacramento right now. Far better than they have been in recent memory. Soon enough they should be officially ending the previous era of Kings basketball.
Kings on verge of Ending Longest Playoff Drought in NBA History
It has been a long, long time since the Sacramento Kings last played in a playoff game. Longer than any other team in NBA history has had to wait between playoff appearances.
They now find themselves comfortably in a position to close out the season with a strong seed in the western conference playoffs. Although they have come out of the all-star break scorching hot they don’t necessarily need to win every game to get themselves into the postseason.
It will be virtually impossible for them to be caught and passed for a playoff spot by any of the teams at the bottom of the standings. All the Kings need to do is play decent basketball and they shouldn’t have any trouble getting in.
It’s preferred they keep playing how they are right now, lighting opponents up and making statements nightly The statement? These aren’t those old Sacramento Kings.
This team is a playoff team. The first one Sacramento will have in over ten years.
They last made a playoff appearance in 2006. It has been many years of disappointment and frustration for Kigns fans but the good news is it all seems ready to change. The Kings are ready to make history.
