    Heard that they want the Kings to change their name if they move away from Sacramento…that’s just plain stupid. It’s not like Sacramento gave them that name. They were the Kansas City KINGS long before they came to Sacramento.. I know because I moved out here the same year they did from Kansas City. I know it will be sad to loose them as it was back east in 1985, but they will always be the KINGS

    It does not seem to me that anybody gets it.They have worn Royals jerseys for the last two home games.The Maloofs are rubbing the fan noses in it and the fans still smell hope when they should be smelling something else!
