Kings Challenge ESPN Worst Franchise Rating
The Sacramento Kings today issued a challenge to ESPN The Magazine’s pronouncement on its current cover that the Kings are the worst franchise in sports. The team released advertisements saying, “Hey ESPN. Nice Airball. New Era. New Swagger. The Best Fans Await You. 11.15.13.” The messaging references the Nov. 15 nationally televised home game between the Kings and the Detroit Pistons on ESPN.
“We love ESPN, but think they could have given us the benefit of foresight in their rankings,” continued (Kings CFO Chris) Granger. “They know what we have going here. And, if they don’t, we’re going to show them when they visit us on November 15.”
