I have an idea for the Maloofs if the team ends up staying in Sacramento for next year and for the foreseeable future. This is assuming that the rest of this year continues to be somewhat of a disaster and that the fans are at least as apathetic as most are right now. The Maloofs need to rename the team. Probably to the "Royals" but possibly something that might be Sacramento related (like what the River Cats did). Let's face it, the name "Kings" is not the greatest to begin with and if you throw out the Webber-Vlade era, it's just tied with a lot of heartache and pain.
If they did this, got a real coach, and apologized to the city and started to rebrand the team with the new name, logo, colors, etc. I actually think it could reenergize the city's love for the team. If they chose a Sacramento related name it could really help clean up their image around the city and with the fans.
I mean, really, what do they possibly have to lose at this point?
