The 1st Annual Jesty Awards

The season is over, and you know what that means! No, not Playoffs. This is something better. This is the Jesty Awards. These awards aren't about worthless things like stats and victories. These awards go much deeper. These are the Jesties.

-cue mental award show music.-

Hello all, it's me, your host, Bradley Geiser. It has been a wonderful year for the people of Sacramento. The team is staying, we have a new arena coming, a great new ownership group! (

There were 28 moments filled with sheer excitement, and 58 other moments where it was hard to swallow, and I was just left feeling sick inside, wanting to throw up. But enough about my first experience with Zing Vodka. (Audience Laughter)

None of this year would be possible without our awesome new ownership group, so please give a big around of applause to the ringleader of that group, the wickedly talented. Vivel Naseem. (More hysterical laughter)

The year wasn't without it's surprises, either. None bigger than Shaquille O'Neal... (crickets)

So without further to do, ladies and gentlemen, I bring to you, this years winner in the 1st Annual Jesty Awards.
