Tomorrow Will Be Better, I Swear

Tonight, the Kings face the Lakers. Sacramento feels a lot different than it did five years ago. We'll scream obscenities at Kobe, boo in Phil Jackson's ear and give the ol' BEAT L-A! BEAT L-A! chant some effort ... but it's not the same. The Lakers will probably be in the Finals; the Kings will probably finish with the worst record in the league. It's not the same any more.

But we'll be back, beating L.A. and winning 60 games and getting to the playoffs and winning postseason series. We'll be back.

In the meantime, to avoid thinking about the unfortunate state of our team, please watch this 10-minute Ricky Rubio reel set to "Free Bird" (HQ here) ...

... or watch Blake Griffin dunk for basically three minutes straight (HQ).

Tomorrow will be better. The Kings are coming for you.
