The Sacramento Kings are staying in Sacramento.
After a long, arduous and stressful time where it looked like they’d be heading north to Seattle, the franchise which has called the California capital home since 1986 is staying put.
And as a way to drum up some positive P.R., the new owners thought it would be a good idea to let fans shoot half-court shots for season tickets. Easy formula — you make it, you win the tickets.
In all, five Kings fans drained the shot and won ducats for next season.
There’s no truth to the rumor that Kings scouts offered contracts to the fans who sunk the shot. But maybe it’s not a bad idea — after all, the Kings won just 28 games and were 19th in the league in shooting percentage.
