Back in 2002 Western Conference Finals, the Sacramento Kings fought a tense, epic 7 game battle against the LA Lakers. Fast forward a few months into a meaningless preseason game, where they met again. Two minutes into the game, Doug Christie and Rick Fox got into a fight and were ejected. After the ejections, Fox chased down Christie in the hallways and continued fighting.
Just because it's preseason doesn't mean there can't be any spice.
Tonight, we open our preseason against those Clippers.
Do they like us? No.
Do we like them? No.
Did they beat us in the playoffs? Yes.
Are we bitter about that? Yes.
Do we want to beat them tonight? Yes!
Will there be fireworks tonight? Sure, why not!
