We may say this every year, but this is really our year.

Hey Kings fans, the ball’s in our court.

Here’s a look back at the 2022-23 season in case you need a refresher:

  • Sacramento finished 48-34 overall — their first 40-win season since 2005-2006.
  • The Beam Team claimed its first Pacific Division title since the 2002-2003 season.
  • The Kings broke the longest active playoff drought in American sports history after making the postseason for the first time since 2006.
  • De’Aaron Fox and Domantas Sabonis became the first Kings teammates to be selected to the All-NBA team in the same season.
  • Keegan Murray was named to the All-NBA Rookie team, and finished fifth in Rookie of the Year voting after the Kings selected him with the fourth overall pick in the 2022 NBA Draft.
  • Sports Illustrated summarized it as the Kings’ best season in almost 20 years.
  • Coach Mike Brown was voted NBCA’s Coach of the Year.

What’s up for this year:

  • The Kings are predicted to make it farther in the playoffs with a second-round exit.
  • EuroLeague MVP forward Sasha Vezenkov tops the list of new players to watch.
  • Former center for the Mavericks JaVale McGee and his 7'6" wingspan are now on our roster.
  • Former All-Rookie team guard Chris Duarte from the Pacers also joined the team.
  • Jordan Ford, one of three rookies on the team this year, is a Folsom native. Way to shop local, Sacramento.

One thing’s for certain — we’re in for a wild ride this season, and we’re here for it.
