ICYMI, I'll have the exclusive local preview of the ESPN 30 for 30 film "Down in the Valley" about saving @Sacramento Kings tonight @ 11

Mike Wise

But I'm thinking @Golden State Warriors at Oracle maybe be consistently louder than Kings, Jazz and Thunder, and only old Boston Garden in '86 compares.

Mike Wise

Before @Warriors, 3 loudest NBA home courts past 20 years have been Sacramento (1999-2004), Utah (95-99) and OKC ('10-'14), in that order.

Sean Cunningham

On improving the Kings roster for next season, Vivek Ranadive said Pete D'Alessandro & Vlade Divac have their work cut out for them.

Kings owner Vivek Ranadive still openly admires what the Warriors have done. Very much believes Kings are not that far away. Wore Kings polo

Sean Cunningham

Kings owner Vivek Ranadive is very put-off by trade rumors with DeMarcus Cousins, especially since he signed him. No desire to trade him

In all seriousness, Mychal Thompson applauds Kings hire. Vlade's smart," Thompson added. "He's going to be terrific. I have no doubts."
