The Kings roster is much improved over recent years past, but as always, teams don't make the playoffs because they look good on paper.
To open the season, the Kings will find themselves in Chicago, facing the Derrick Rose-less Bulls. The Kings acquired Aaron Brooks, James Johnson and Thomas Robinson in the offseason. They will look to start the new NBA season on a high note.
If the team can survive a tough January and February schedule, Kings fans may have a chance to root for their team in the playoffs for the first time in what seems like forever. The third spot in the Pacific Division is up for grabs. Will the Kings take advantage of this opportunity?
