The Sacramento Kings and their fans united for one final time last night, and Donte Green gave them a show.
Last night, as the fans packed the arena to show the solidarity and the support of the fanbase, the Kings didn't disappoint.
Putting forth a great effort, pushing the two-time defending champion Los Angeles Lakers to overtime, the Kings fell just short.
It's a sad situation for Kings fans, who are having this team ripped from their hands through no fault of their own. This is a city that loves and supports this team, even though they haven't been competitive in the Western Conference in years.
The owners of this franchise are the ones chasing dollars in southern California and stealing this team away from the people that love it the most.
It's not a region that needs another team, it's just a cheap ploy to make more money and it's sad to see. Hopefully the NBA and the rest of the owners step in and stop this before a crime is committed and this team heads south.
It's a horrible thing to watch a city and a fan base go through, but last night was magic in Sacramento.
The team showed what it can do into the future, there were great, jaw-dropping plays like the one you saw from Greene, the fans had one last cathartic experience and maybe, just maybe, the sun will shine on Sacramento and this team stays for a long, long time.
I can't think of a fanbase that deserves it more than the Kings'.
