Ball Don't Lie - Watch Sacramento Kings rookie Thomas Robinson, as he’s greeted by Kings fans (VIDEO)

24

A shout out to Kings fans: The Sacramento Kings may have ranked 28th out of 30 NBA teams in attendance during the 2011-12 season, but a couple of factors need to be considered as we judge that particular statistic. For one, the Kings stunk — starting off the season with an embarrassing battle of wills between ex-coach Paul Westphal and starting center DeMarcus Cousins, one that eventually led to Westphal's dismissal. The team only won a third of its games, and the raw attendance figures don't take into account that the team still nearly filled up its relatively small home arena even as the team's owners were criticized for pulling a fast one on Sacramento civic leaders in their unending attempts at taking the team away from the state capital. So when Kings fans hear the good news of a great player and great person, in the form of Kansas forward Thomas Robinson, being added to the team's roster? They come out in droves. Real droves — like, filling the second floor of a mall droves. Watch the video:
