If you have lived in Sacramento for at least 3 years you should be well aware of what I like to call the “Disappointing Playoff Performance Meltdown” of our NBA Kings. Even worse, if you have lived in Sacramento for at least 3 years AND enjoy you some sports talk radio, your ears are no doubt ringing with the sounds of panic buttons being pushed all across the San Joaquin valley.
I’ve been to several NBA cities and have listened to many a sports talk radio program and nowhere have I heard more whining and flip flopping than I have here in the River City. Win a game, “This is our year, Grant, we have the heart and the firepower to take it all”; lose a game, “I’m telling you Grant, we need to fire Adelman and do a sign a trade for Shaq, Kobe, and Garnett for Bobby Jackson and a player to be named later.” Yes, the Kings play little to no defense. Yes, Adelman is who he is and will never play the right player at the right time. And yes, it would be nice to get rid of Peja while he still has some market value. But at the end of the day, Sacramentans, you are always going to be the bridesmaid and never the bride. So just grab your cowbell and enjoy your mediocrity…that’s what is great about living here. Just the leave the phone alone.
