    It’s hard to care too much about what happens on the actual court for the Sacramento Kings right now. With the ownership and relocation drama looming over the team at all times, there are bigger fights to be had than regular season games.

    Feb 11, 2013, 1:17 PM EDT

    Kings Rockets

    In the end it may not change the outcome, but what the Sacramento Kings fans did Sunday night was show how much passion there still is for NBA basketball in that market. Which raises a lot of uncomfortable questions for the league. Sunday night when the Rockets came to town was “Here We Buy” night…

    I don’t really know how good of coaches they will be, but the 2013 Sprint NBA All-Star Celebrity Game will have better dressed coaches than the All-Star Game itself. All-Stars and hipsters James Harden and Russell Westbrook have stepped up to coach the annual celebrity game that is part of the All-Star weekend. And if…

    CORRECTION:  February 8, 2013 An earlier version of this post incorrectly referred to a May 2003 document as an addendum to the Kings’ 1992 ownership agreement.  The May 2003 document is self-described as a proposal, which, if approved, would constitute a basis for an amendment of the Kings’ partnership agreement.  The version of the May…

    The state of limbo surrounding where the Sacramento Kings will play next season looks like it is going to trickle down to the roster. As in, don’t expect any changes or big moves from the Kings at the trade deadline. With a lame-duck GM (no matter who owns the team by next season) and a…
