How the best ever Sacramento Kings team missed the NBA Finals, then deteriorated

In early 2002, the Sacramento Kings looked like they might be the next NBA dynasty. They were well on their way to the Finals, and as the rival Los Angeles Lakers came apart, the Kings were poised to take over.
And then ... things happened. First came the notorious, controversial end to the 2002 Western Conference Finals against those Lakers. Then came an injury to Sacramento's star, Chris Webber. Then came some bad feelings, some bad moves, and eventually some really bad basketball.
This starts as the story of a perfectly built team running into misfortune when it should have been peaking. It becomes a story of that perfect creation crumbling into pieces, with no clear plan to rebuild. This one hurts.

Jesus says in John 6:47 "verily, verily I say unto you, he that believes in me has everlasting life." Jesus of Nazareth was the Messiah, he died for the remission of sin, including yours, was buried and rose from the dead on the third day after his burial, so that all who believe may have everlasting life. Whoever believes in Jesus to to save them from hell has everlasting life in heaven.

It'll take a few more years to truly be finished but one can also be done on the Los Angeles Kings. From two Stanley cups in four years to one of the worst teams in the league due to poor personnel decisions and new powerhouses in the west.

What if just regular jobs could have trade deals? Like, it’s not working out at this bar, but you’re a solid server and another place is willing to give up a couple rookies and a contract extension for you. I think this is something we should all think about: thank you for coming to my ted talk

Actually from what I remembered, the former Ron Artest did not want to accept the trade on heading to Sacramento. I often wondered how well the Indiana Pacers would be if the "Malice at the Palace" did not happen. As for the 2002 Sacramento Kings, they were so exciting to watch. As a fan, I enjoyed their brand of basketball. I watched a game that year when they played the Orlando Magic in Orlando. An ugly fight occurred between T-Mac and Bobby Jackson.

@Pepe Lopez So? The Sacramento Kings had their chances to overcome bad officiating by making a few more plays to win either Games 4, 6 or 7 of the 2002 WCF series, but failed when they lost all three. The teams with five more NBA titles in the Lakers, Celtics, Bulls with MJ, Warriors and Spurs caught breaks and capitalize them.

@second wave Well, there's a reason why there's a difference between teams with five or more NBA titles and teams that are snakebitten like the Kings. Those five teams that I mentioned turned off the distractions like the referees and played basketball to win while the Kings blamed everybody else for their failures instead of themselves.

It’s extremely difficult to win a championship in the NBA. Beyond an elite roster, the stars have to be aligned (in an extremely short window) with no injuries, no suspensions. Even then you have to just be lucky that one or two bounces go your way. So when the refs f you over, there is no chance. This is what happened to the Kings and the Suns in the 2000s. Really diminished the legacy of the players

And the Sacramento Kings and their fans are still mumbling, 'that should've been us' when their NorCal rival, the Golden State Warriors, beat them to the punch for three NBA titles in a five-year span between 2015 and 2019. How? The Dubs simply turned off the distractions like the referees and play basketball to win especially in winner-take-all postseason games. Rick Adelman and the Greatest Show on Court era Sacramento Kings were 0-3 in Game 7s and 0-5 overall in winner-take-all postseason games.

There's many reasons. But the #1 reason is the "best basketball refs on earth,"-HAHA, gave Shaq,& Kobes Lakers, like 30 free throws, in 4th qtr of game 6,& Sacramento got like 2..in a 1 point loss that wouldve ended the series. But Sacramento also choked away game 7 at home,& lost in OT. And the refs were basically fair in that game. I haven't watched the video yet,& he probably mentioned these, (hopefully)but that's the easiest question ever. And I had no dog in the fight. I'm a Denver fan. I loved Kobe-Shaq not so much, but I like him now. I liked Webber, but not so much now. I think he get's the most blame for the "Fab 5 feud." And while he is very knowledgeable, I think he is a terrible analyst, full of cliches,& double talk. Jalen Rose is so much better at his job. But it's to bad the Kings couldn't get it done, for so many reasons. But come on, that's just impossible that 1 team would foul that much more, in what turned into a 1pt non elimination game. Shadiest game ever,& I believe Tim Donhey 100%.
joesakic91
joesakic91 25 days ago
It's actually 27 free throw attempts in the fourth quarter in Game 6 while the Kings had nine. The Lakers made 21 of 27 and 34 out of 40 for the game. BTW, Game 4 was more of a killer for the Kings where they needed one rebound on the final play to win that game.

joesakic91 28 days ago
The Pedowitz report disagrees. Also, the 2002 WCF shouldn't came down to Games 6 and 7 for the Sacramento Kings had they won Game 4. The Kings arguably had a better team in 2003 when Gerald Wallace fitted in to Rick Adelman's system and added Keon Clark and Jimmy Jackson to the team until Chris Webber tore his lateral meniscus in his knee.

@rwarren58 And what's even sadder for the Kings, their fans and the Laker haters is that they talk about Game 6, but they don't realize that Game 4 of the 2002 WCF was more of a killer for them. All the Kings had to do is to grab one rebound on the final play of that game and they would've been up 3-1. Unfortunately, Vlade Divac slapped the ball to Robert Horry with nobody guarding the three-point line. By the time Chris Webber got to Horry, it was a little too late and Horry got a good look to nail that trey. Also, Rick Adelman and the 'Greatest Show on Court' era Sacramento Kings never won a Game 7 during their heyday where they went 0-3.

I even take the 1990s Knicks and Utah Jazz over the 2002-2003 Kings.

@Round Robin Unfortunately, the Pedowitz report says no concrete evidence of Game 6 of the 2002 WCF is fixed. Sure, the Knicks caught breaks with the 1985 NBA Draft lottery and selected Patrick Ewing. At least the Knicks made the NBA Finals twice with Ewing. In contrast, the Sacramento Kings are snakebitten since 1951. Keep hating. You're making the Lakers' titles so much sweeter. ;-)

Gj glossing over how the lakers got screwed in game 5. Everyone does it to fit this weak ass narrative. The choked badly. 65% FT is NOT championship calibur. Queens gonna cry.

Let those dynasty haters stay jealous especially the Sacramento Kings who are on the verge of a snakebitten hat trick in NBA history. The Kings already have the longest NBA title and NBA Finals appearance droughts and unless something changes, they might pass the Donald Sterling era Los Angeles Clippers for the longest NBA playoff appearance drought.

@Joel Platt And then' there's the Pedowitz report that disagrees. Keep hating. You're just making the Lakers' titles especially in 2002 so much sweeter.

DOOMNOTRON Yeah there’s that, then there’s the fall guy ref who admitted to rigging it. What’s bigger? If it were the opposite you wouldn’t be saying that.

@Joel Platt educate your self pleb. They shot 204 FTs and made 135. The Lakers got 185 FTA and made 135. Make your freethrows and you easily win the series. Especially since you got a major advantage by all the fouls you got called in your favor. Oh, and dont miss wide open shots in game 7. Sit down you clown.

If by “choking” you mean getting phucked over then yes.

I haven't watched it yet but I already know why they didn't go to the finals and whatever the video says won't change my mind. IT WAS FIXED.

@CrushOfSiel Nah, the Sacramento Kings failed to seal the deal in the 2002 WCF. Now, the Kings have to suffer even more when their NorCal rival, the Golden State Warriors, beat them to the punch for three NBA titles in a five-year span between 2015 and 2019 while things are on the verge of a snakebitten hat trick: NBA title, NBA Finals appearance and NBA Playoff appearance drought.

But sports leagues really need a big market or a super/megastar player in the grand finale.

Or had one the Kings guarded the three-point line to grab Vlade Dlvac's slap.

That 02 team was very very good and easily could have won the championship. The decline was inevitable, nothing lasts forever, but the ongoing suckiness of the Kings is the result of a lot of really bad decisions. How do they stay bad with 7 seasons of DeMarcus Cousins? They could have built a winner around him.

2003 was arguably better than the 2002 squad until Chris Webber tore his lateral meniscus.

@WillJM81280 So I guess the refs also loved George Mikan's Lakers, Red Auerbach's Celtics, Red Holzman's Knicks, Showtime Lakers and Larry Bird's Celtics, MJ's Bulls, Gregg Popovich's Spurs and the Splash Brother era Warriors too? Sour grapes.
