The Sacramento Kings have emerged as an unexpected challenger for the Golden State Warriors in the first round of the playoffs. The young and hungry team from California's capital has not only taken a 2-0 lead in the series against the reigning champions, but they have also caught the attention of one of the Warriors' top executives. Bob Myers, the President of the Golden State Warriors, recently spoke about how the 2019 Kings remind him of the 2012-13 Warriors roster led by a young Steph Curry. Myers has praised the Kings for their momentum, newness, hunger, and health throughout the season. The Kings' style of play has caught the eye of Myers, particularly their use of three-pointers, as they have the best shot profile of all 16 teams in the playoffs. However, it’s not just Myers who has taken notice of the Kings' potential. The basketball world is now buzzing about their chances of dethroning the Warriors, who have won three championships in the last four years. The Kings have proven themselves as a legitimate contender and have shown that they are not intimidated by the defending champions. Despite the Kings' early success in the series, it was never going to be easy to take down the Warriors. In the following two games, Golden State demonstrated their championship experience by dominating the young squad, tying the series at 2-2. But the Kings are not going down without a fight. De'Aaron Fox, Malik Monk, and Domantas Sabonis have been immense for the Kings, and they have given the Warriors a run for their money. Meanwhile, Steph Curry has once again been the backbone of the Golden State team, averaging 31.5 points, five rebounds, and 3.7 assists in the first four games of the series. The series is now at a critical juncture, with everything to play for. The Kings have already proven themselves to be an exceptional team, but the Warriors have found their rhythm as well. The rest of the series will come down to which team is hungrier and can maintain the momentum for longer. Regardless of the outcome, the Sacramento Kings have shown that they are a force to be reckoned with in the NBA. They have a bright future ahead of them and will be looking to build on their current success. As for the Golden State Warriors, they will have to work hard to maintain their reign as NBA champions, as every team in the league is gunning for them.
