    Default Sacramento will reach the Western Conference finals.

    I like the way they are playing. Ron Artest is easily in the top 10 players in the L right now. I'll wait for feedbacks before posting why I think the Kings can really go deep in the playoffs. To me, they are the Knicks of 98-99.

    If they can take the Spurs in the first round, then I'm with you. That will be their toughest test.

    No.

    Simply because they don't have the write type of team to match up with the Spurs.

    If they don't get the 7 spot, they will win 2 games against the spurs max.

    I really think they can match up with the Spurs. Actually, I think they will be the one of toughest match up for the Spurs in the west. With most of their guys back, the Kings have the talent and man power to go toe to toe with the Spurs. Brad can extend the D with his J not allowing Timmy and the Spurs big men to cheat on D. Kings can shoot the ball no doubt. The only prob would be their lack of prescence in the middle but one on one they can defend any team. RonRon and those guys play physical man. And if you watched the Spurs-Sonics series last year, then you know the Spurs don't like being played physical. If they still have CW there, I think this team can really reach the NBA finals. I know a lot of you are already thinking I don't know what the hell I'm talking about, but heck, with the Pacers playing as pathetic as they are, I have switched my attention to my favorite ex-Pacer's team and have seen great basketball over there. Just watch.

    They are not going to beat SA and Dallas back to back.

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    Yes they are good. I hope the Kings make it to the finals. If they do, they can win it all...

    if they beat the spurs no doubt about it, beating the spurs will be really tough but I think they can do it.

    Ronnie has so much motivation to prove everyone wrong, making them very scary.
    *removed* Just keep politics and religion completely out of it, please.

    To be honest, playoff pressure and Ron Artest have not always mixed well.

    Perhaps being in the honeymoon phase (still) will delay the expected fireworks.

    Agreed. They have the toughest possible road to the WCF, 2 of the NBA's three best teams. Imagine if they won the title, beating the spurs, mav, suns and pistons. That would probably be the best series of opponents ever faced by any team in the play-offs.

    If the Kings make it to the WCF I will stop watching the NBA forever.

    Unless something happens to Manu or Timmy,the Spurs will end up beating them in six games.

    Now if the Kings end in the 7th spot, I think they can beat the Suns.

    Not going to happen. Not if they face the Spurs OR the Suns. Maybe the Mavs, but otherwise "nope" .

    Honestly speaking - anything after eventual game 6 would be great. I don't think that they will sweep us but I don't see us winning twich in San Antonio because that is what would take. We are 8th seed and to get to WCF we have to beat 2 best teams in the West 4 times on the road (each twice). While I would love to see it happen - I wouldn't bet anything on it.
    In terms of the team we have no backup PG or backup Center. Additionally, Parker will be guarded by Bibby. That is a problem. We got nothing to lose tough

    "We got nothing to lose..."

    Those five words could end up being very important. There's no pressure on the Kings; they aren't the media darlings. Hell, they weren't even expected to get this far...

    Do I honestly THINK they can get past the Spurs? No. Is my heart telling my brain to shut up, that this team CAN do the impossible? Every waking moment.

    I do firmly believe we have a chance to make the first round interesting. And, considering everything that's happened to our team this year, that will be more than enough for me.

    NBA basketball - taking my breath away since 1963.

    1995 Rockets hold that honor.

    They beat the 4 best records in the NBA on their way to title #2.

    1. Utah 60-22
    2. Phoenix 59-23
    3. SA 62-20
    4. Orlando 57-25

    That's a murderer's row that won't ever be matched.

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    If the Kings could land 6th or 7th in the West, then I'd give them a rather strong chance to advance to the WCF. But matched against the Spurs, nah. The Spurs are the one team that I'm 100% certain will beat them in a 7 game series. That isn't to say the Kings can't win a game or two to make it a little interesting but they won't beat the Spurs.

    It's very simple: If Lakers slip and we get 7th seed, we will bounce Suns. Provided that Clippers eliminate Denver, WCF is automatic (we own Clippers).

    But, beating both Spurs and Mavs is a tall order.
