The Sacramento Kings are a Joke

Posted by Jay Sanin on 2/21/2017 6:38:58 AM

There are a select group of NBA teams that are the laughingstocks of the league, teams that are so inept that their next gaffe is less surprising than it is expected. In this group are teams like the New York Knicks, Philadelphia 76ers, and other clubs who are good at tripping over themselves while attempting to turn their fortunes around. But the Sacramento Kings have vaulted over all of those teams and cemented their status as the chief laughingstock of the NBA after their atrocious DeMarcus Cousins trade helped torpedo their odds of being good anytime soon.

Sacramento Kings of Nothing

It is important to point out that the Sacramento Kings once had DeMarcus Cousins, Hassan Whiteside, and Isaiah Thomas all on their team at the same time. That young core could be competing as one of the better teams in the Western Conference right now, but an ownership group led by Vivek Ranadive and an operations staff led by former Kings center Vlade Divac has moved all of those players off of the team for pieces that are below average at best, with Cousins being the latest player to be sent packing in a trade with the New Orleans Pelicans that netted Sacramento a mediocre Buddy Hield and nothing else of note.

This is a leadership group that has previously proposed playing 4-on-5 defensively to try and create an advantage via fast breaks, a group that has failed to develop even one young player into a star during their time in charge, and a group that actually admitted this week that they turned down a better offer for Cousins earlier in the week only to trade him for a worse package because the owner had a fascination with Buddy Hield. The NBA should take the Sacramento Kings away from these people.

Sacramento Kings NBA Futures Betting

After trading their only legitimately good player, the Sacramento Kings are being given virtually no chance to win the NBA Finals. Their NBA futures betting odds sit at +100000, so a $100 wager on the Kings would yield an unfathomable $100,000. Given how this inept franchise has done nothing to inspire confidence, that may not even be an adequate payout. And to think we would have the Seattle Supersonics back if not for Vivek Ranadive and his band of know-nothings.
