The Sacramento’ Kings social media team might be one of the top-five in the entire sports world. We found that out earlier on Tuesday.
But after seeing the website FiveThirtyEight predict the Kings to finish in last place in the Western Conference, said social media trolled the site big time. Check it out.
Was this prediction troll-worthy? We’re going to go with yes. How can anyone seriously believe that Sacramento — coming off its best season in over a decade — is worst than the Suns and Grizzlies?
Sacramento boasts a tremendous young core in that of De’Aaron Fox, Buddy Hield and Marvin Bagley III. It re-signed veteran wing Harrison Barnes while adding the likes of Cory Joseph, Trevor Ariza and Dewayne Dedmon in free agency.
The Kings are much closer to playoff contention than existing in the Western Conference cellar. Their social media team seems to agree.
