Sacramento Kings fans set the Guinness World Record for loudest indoor arena on Saturday, causing their announcer to get a lot more excited than he should have been.
Welcome to “Pretty Much Screwed,” our definitive guide to the upcoming NBA season. This team-by-team preview details why it’s probably not your favorite team’s year. In out final installment, we discuss the Sacramento Kings … The Team That Lived, despite Voldemort’s efforts to destroy it.
We interrupt your incoming Fantasy sports overdose of baseball, football and hockey to inform you that NBA training camps will open within the next five weeks, which means finding time between Rotisserie/playoff chases, reminders that both the NFL and college gridiron weekends begin on Thursday and trying to come to grips with forgiving the NHL for ruining your 2012-13 season, the process of evaluating talent (again) comes into focus.
If a Maloof brother peeks out of his closet and sees his shadow, you know it’s six more months of the Kings remaining in Sacramento. Yes, one of the current owners of the Kings actually got chased into a hotel lobby closet by the press, which was only one of the highlights of today’s NBA Board of Governors meeting.
Thunder’s Kevin Durant wears Seattle SuperSonics hat at practice: statement attire, or first thing he grabbed while leaving the house? You be the judge.
Bill Walton says whatever he wants. There’s even a mildly bothersome, though popular, Twitter account dedicated to his phraseology. He speaks in metaphor and simile and grandiosity.

We’re not sure why Chris Paul so egregiously flopped during Clippers-Kings last night. DeMarcus Cousins didn’t do anything, the teams have no bad blood, and there’s no distinct advantage to a foul call (which didn’t come anyway). But what we’re left with is a pained look on Chris Paul’s face, a no-call, and something to rival the Chris Bosh timber flop.
Note To Tyreke Evans: If You’re Going To Pad Your Stats At The End Of The Game, At Least Make The Layup
Last night’s Sacramento-Miami double-overtime thriller pretty much shocked anyone who watches basketball. The Kings, who kind of suck, were on the road against a Miami team that was in the midst of an 11-game winning streak. The Heat eventually pulled it out 141-129, but not without LeBron’s masterful 40 points, 16 assists and eight rebounds against a team that just wouldn’t go away. This includes the final seconds and etiquette-smashing Tyreke Evans.
