Disheartened Kings fans turned the team‘s subreddit into a Lion King forum

Tuesday February 21st, 2017

Kings fans are fed up. After Sacramento got fleeced in the trade that sent DeMarcus Cousins to the Pelicans, the fans on the team’s subreddit decided it wasn’t even worth discussing basketball anymore. It’s a page to discuss The Lion King now. 

It all started when one user posted a thread titled “If this post gets 1000 upvotes this subreddit will be dedicated to all things Lion King.” It did, and so readers dropped all things NBA to instead talk about how Vivek Ranadive is the same as Scar. 

Don't let Boogie getting traded to the Pelicans distract you from the fact that Scar blew a 1,000 hyena lead to a pride of lions. from kings
