It's been closed since June 15th, and is still weeks away from being back up. Apparently their merchandiser went out of business. Still though, it's been 2 and a half months and they are still weeks away.

This has to be the most incompetently run franchise in all of sports. They named their arena after a scam bracelet company, Power Balance, that is now bankrupt. They should have gone with a more established company. Maybe Sham Wow.

They sabotaged an arena deal when their contribution would be half the cost it would be to relocate the franchise. The NBA was even going to give them money they didn't have to pay back.

The funniest part is nobody noticed the store being closed till now despite it being down for over 2 months. I guess Jimmer bubbleheads aren't in great demand.

Please trade DeMarcus Cousins and Isaiah Thomas to real teams. Except the Lakers.

This is my plan for fixing the Kings;

Step 1: Sell them to Microsoft, Nintendo or Starbucks.
Step 2: Move them to Seattle.
Step 3: Fire everyone and start again.

I have an easier solution:

1) Sell the team to Ron Burkle (he wants to buy the team)
2) Burkle signs the arena deal the Maloofs killed

Bonus: Maloofs go bankrupt and are forced to give blowjobs in back alleys in Vegas.

About a year and a half ago. Their deal with Arco expired. Now they are looking for new sponsorship. Sleep Train seems to be the favorite.

Everyone calls in Arco still.

Yeah, there were a bunch of stories when it changed to Power Balance Whatever, because those things are ridiculous and it was a stupid thing to want your pro sports arena associated with.

Chris Webber and Vlade Divac should run the franchise.
