The Maloof Brothers-owned Sacramento Kings are ditching their outdated digs at Arco Arena (which has recently been renamed Power Balance Pavilion) for greener pastures at Anaheim's Honda Center. The move, which would make them the Anaheim Kings and bring yet another NBA team to the immediate area, is being received differently by all parties involved.
Last year, Z100's David Brody remixed Jay-Z's “Run This Town,” making the parody “Yankees Run This Town” the unofficial anthem of the World Series-winning Yankees that season. Recently Snoop, Game and YG remixed Wiz Khalifa's Pittsburgh street anthem “Black and Yellow” into “Purp and Yellow,” a pro-LA, pro-Lakers theme song. We're thinking the Kings will need their own anthem if they do make the big move.
Just in case, here are some of our suggestions for songs that should be considered for remakes if the Kings wind up in OC.
Ultimately, the Maloof Brothers are making the move because the dilapidated Arco Arena–ahem, Power Balance Pavilion (yes, as in, those plastic bracelets they sell at the mall–and poor economy in Sacramento haven't made this location ideal for profit. However, it's no secret the median income for a household in OC is around $62,000, as compared to Sacramento's $43,000. Plus, with the $100 million Anaheim Ducks owner Henry Samueli has offered to loan the Maloof Bros. to assist in the move to the Honda center, it's obvious there's a lot of money to be made by all parties involved, making Travis Porter's ode to cash coming down like rainfall a perfect anthem.
