AFTER 16 YEARS, THE SACRAMENTO KINGS HAVE MADE THE PLAYOFFS. Did hell freeze over? Are pigs flying? After beating the Trailblazers tonight, they have officially clinched a spot in the playoffs. Who knows what they’re gonna do in the playoffs, but who the hell cares? As a Sacramento native, I never thought this time would come. This is such a big moment for me and everyone else from Sacramento. We are pretty much the laughingstock of not just the NBA, but every other sports league. We have the longest playoff drought in all of the professional sports. The closest team is the New York Jets at 11 years. In this blog, I just wanna highlight all the bright spots in our 16 years. 

Demarcus Cousins: Prime Boogie was something special. Coming out of Kentucky, I thought he was going to be the change for not only the team but for the city. The way that this relationship ended was brutal, he got traded and now he hates Sacramento. I swear he never got a solid chance here.

Losing Our Team: Although this never fully happened, this was such a weird time for the team and city. Just not knowing what was coming next and what to expect. I remember the “scheduled” last home game finished and fans stayed in their seats for like 3 hours and had to be kicked out by security. Turns out the former scumbag owners sold the team and our king Vivek Ranadive kept them in Sacramento.

THE BEAM: This is new to Sacramento, but it has become to rallying cry to the entire city. I have a theory that this beam was an industry plant by the NBA to bring new life to Sacramento. But either way, it’s beautiful and I will claim this beam as my firstborn child.

I am proud of this city and I am glad we can all enjoy this together.
