Who are the Bulls blaming their loss on tonight? It must have been the refs' fault they shot 26%.

I didn't pay any attention to them during the season, but the Warriors are a fun team to watch.

Probably Nate Robinson. He went 0-for-12 for the night.

The reffing was objectively terrible in game 3, let's be real. Anyway, this series has just been a fun underdog story, but tonight should have ground fans back into reality. Only so much you can do in the Bulls situation. Butler isn't playing confident, and Boozer's typical bullshit isn't helping an already desperate bench. And Robinson is just completely unreliable. He brought some heart to the playoffs but I personally won't be sad to see him gone.

At this point im rooting for the Warriors. Really hope they beat the spurs, then memphis, and beat the heat in the finals. Unless the Pacers can beat the heat before that!

The NBA needs to speed up the end of the game. Too many timeouts and the refs take forever looking at replays.

Asking San Antonio to play a legit basketball game without flopping to the line is like asking Lebron to play without a headband.

Don't know much about him, but i hope he isn't just a clone of Darth Sternrannus.

Also Fuck stern for basically dragging Seattle through the mud and using them as leverage just for Sacramento to get its shit together. that Seattle move was never gonna happen and he knew it.

Sacramento still hasn't gotten their shit together. There's currently no deal in place for the city of Sacramento to build a new arena, even though that was supposed to be the entire cornerstone of the Kings staying. Not to mention the Seattle bid is also higher at the moment.

Stern and the owners can say all they want, but with how adamant the Maloofs have been about refusing to sell to the Sacramento group, I'm not believing any of this until ownership leaves the Maloofs hands.

Well, OKC came fighting back but Memphis managed to get the win and move on to the WCF. Durant just couldn't knockdown shots tonight. Even saw an air ball from him if I remember correctly.

I actually like Golden State, but I think the WCF is going to inevitably be Grizzlies/Spurs. Should be a good series too.

Memphis completes the gentlemens sweep, stern has now lost his mind.

Okc hasn't outplayed their opponent since game 1 against the Rockets, if Mchale was a better coach this would have been a Memphis/Rockets series.

Hopefully Golden state can stop these overrated floppers from reaching the WCF

As a Kings fans I am relieved for the moment but won't feel at all satisfied until we can get rid of the Maloofs.

Maloofs are the biggest pieces of shit in sports and despite dragging our team into the ground for the past 10 years Sacramento still has extreme loyalty to our team.

In the past 10 years: no big free agent signings, in the lowest payroll bracket year after year, dumbfounding trades (traded last year's draft pick for cash and then later in the year our top prospect for more cash), and countless flip flopping drama "Maloofisms". Because of the Maloofs failed business endeavours, they've kept the Kings in the bottom cellar for years. To put it blunt: We've been Maloofed.

We've had to deal with this for years all while the Maloofs try to move the team to Las Vegas, Anaheim, and now sell the team to Seattle.

Despite all of this utter bullshit, our city is still faithful to the Kings as an organization.

I do feel for Seattle, and I think they do deserve an expansion team. But you have to remember -> they didn't put nearly as much effort as our city has when their team was poached off to OKC. Now they when they get an opportunity they want to do the same thing to our city... :roll:

Our city has done everything the NBA has asked of it despite having the worst owners in history of the NBA.

One of the Kings fans on Reddit posted what I think is a really good "reader's digest" version of the whole, sordid affair with the Maloofs. It might help to show fans exactly what this has been like for Kings fans with the Maloofs as owners.

http://www.reddit.co...g_since/c9qnub4


The fans, the media and the politicians have done everything the NBA had asked in the short amount of time constantly having to change and readapt proposals due to the Maloofs constant shifty tactics. Basically trying to sell the team without giving the city a chance even refusing to sell to Burkle when he had interest to keep the team in Sacramento and then denying that they were even going to sell the team at all.

Sacramento was being sold out by vindictive owners.

I'm glad there on their way out, it has been NBA Hell for Sacramento the past half decade. The Maloofs have the anti-Midas touch (their vodka, Palms Casino, etc).

I'm done discussing about it though because it's been three long years of this mess.

The Maloofs have been an albatross around the franchise's neck ever since the Kings were no longer playoff caliber. Rather than rebuild, they opted to maximize their profits by keeping payroll down and pocketing their share of the league revenue, all while waiting for another gravy train to roll by.

I'm pretty sure I've said it before, but to reiterate, any scenario that removes the Maloofs from power of the Kings franchise will be a positive one.

With New Orleans changing their name to the Pelicans next season (which I still think is a fucking dumb team name), it looks like the Bobcats are making the move to change names as well and reclaim the title of the Charlotte Hornets.

Oh and apparently the deal to sell the Kings to the Sacramento group has been signed.

Yeah i read how charlotte wants to change their name to hornets, which i think is a great move, hopefully they bring back those Mourning, LJ, Bogues jerseys! But i also read it would take as long as 18 months to finalize, so we probably wont see the charlotte hornets next season.
