Why...

I have no idea or explanation why GM Geoff Petrie decided it would be in the best interest for the team to trade Chris Webber to the Philadelphia 76's for Kenny Thomas, Corliss Williamson and Brian Skinner.

Who?

I mean Petrie didn't even seem like he knew the guys he just acquired when announcing the trade. I mean the trade didn't even help with the cap room nor did help Sacramento for a playoff push...

I just don't get it.

Kings Struggle

from Foxsports.com
Maybe the Sacramento Kings could have used a few more days off. After a long weekend of relaxation, they barely had enough energy to hold off the team with the NBA's worst record.

Chris Webber scored 30 points, Mike Bibby had 23 and the Kings beat the Atlanta Hawks 114-104 on Tuesday night for just their second victory in eight games.
Though Sacramento was relieved when time finally ran out on a much-needed win, nobody celebrated.

After a series of lackluster efforts leading up to the All-Star weekend, where no Kings were invited for the first time since 1992, they needed a fourth-quarter rally to finish off the lowly Hawks' 16th straight road loss.

Kings Thwarted by Suns in Thiller

Chris Webber posted a second consecutive triple-double Tuesday, putting up 24 points, 10 boards and 12 assists against the Suns. But the Kings were foiled as Brad Miller's game-tying attempt was blocked as time expired, leaving Sacramento with a 125-123 loss. Mike Bibby paced the team with 27 points; Cuttino Mobley went 5-of-7 from behind the arc for 20 points.

King on Top

The Kings where without Chris Webber and Peja Stojakovic, who happened to be All-stars, going into Minnesota this past Sunday.

That didn’t matter, even though the Kings record before Sunday night in T’wolves territory was (2-12) in their last 14 regular season games there.
"Whenever we have people down, people step up,"- Mike Bibby

Brad Miller was one of those people as he posted 15 boards and had 27 points to help push the Kings to a 94-84 victory over KG and the Timberwolves.
