Nicknamed “The Bulldozer” and remembered as an unsung hero of Rochester’s championship days, Johnson was a respected 6-foot-5, 240-pound small forward and one of the most likeable players in the NBA. His defense was dauntless, his rebounding tenacious and his screens perfected for the benefit of his future Hall of Fame teammates.

“He was known as one of the most selfless guys on the planet,” Brei said of Johnson, who died in 2000 at the age of 80. “Everything was about the team. … If (his teammates) were still alive, everybody would come back and mention Cheap Arnie Johnson Jersey value.”

Johnson forged an unprecedented path from present-day Memorial Hall in Bemidji to Edgerton Park Sports Arena in Rochester. He was the first BSU alumnus to reach the professional basketball ranks, where he became an integral piece to an NBA heavyweight.

“He was very respectful and a hard worker,” said Arvin Odegaard, Johnson’s nephew and Rochester resident. “He was a tough player and really tough on the boards. He wasn’t necessarily a real high scorer, but he was a great rebounder and playmaker.”

The Sacramento Kings only have one NBA championship in franchise history and it didn’t even occur when the team was called the Kings. Since going professional in 1945 as the Rochester Royals, the team won its first and only title several years later, particularly in the 1950-51 season. It was impressive given that it was only the second season the Royals were in the NBA.

This Royals team was coached by Les Harrison. The roster was led in scoring by Cheap Arnie Risen Jersey, who averaged 16.3 points per game. The Royals were the fifth-ranked offense in the league. At this time, there were only 11 teams in the NBA. Rochester averaged 84.6 points per night.

The Royals had the third-best defense in the NBA. They were giving up only 81.7 points per game. The team started off the season 12-8. The Royals had two separate seven-game winning streaks during the season. They wound up finishing the campaign with an overall record of 41-27.

Rochester finished with the second-best record in the Western Division, which was made up of the Minneapolis Lakers, Fort Wayne Pistons, Indianapolis Olympians and Tri-Cities Blackhawks.

Over in the Eastern Division, the Philadelphia Warriors had the top mark. That division had the Boston Celtics, New York Knicks, Syracuse Nationals, Baltimore Bullets and Washington Capitols in it.

The Royals began the 1951 playoffs by taking on the Pistons in the Western Division Semifinals. There was no first-round of the postseason at this time.

Rochester won the series 2-1. Cheap Bob Davies Jersey led the way by averaging 17.3 points. Risen was right behind him at 16.3 points.

The Western Division Finals saw the Royals and Lakers go head to head. Rochester won this series as well, this time in four games. Risen was once again spectacular. He averaged 18.3 points by racking up 73 points in four games.

The Royals were now in the NBA Finals for the first time ever. To win the title, they would have to take down the mighty Knicks, who were led by Max Zaslofsky. This series figured to be tough for both teams and that’s exactly what it was like.

The Royals won the series in seven games to capture the title. Risen averaged 21.7 points, 14.3 rebounds and 2.7 assists. He probably would have been named Finals MVP if that award was given back in the day.

Since that magical Royals team won the championship, this franchise hasn’t even been back to the Finals. The Rochester Royals became the Cincinnati Royals, Kansas City-Omaha Kings and Kansas City Kings before turning into the Sacramento Kings in 1985.

After the name change, the team found little success, only making the postseason twice. The Kings lost in the first round to the eventual NBA Finalists the Houston Rockets in 1985-86 (led by the “Twin Towers” of Hakeem Olajuwon and Ralph Samson) and then nearly a decade later during the 1995-96 season to another finalist the Seattle SuperSonics who went down to the historic 72-10 Chicago Bulls.

A few years later, the Kings franchise would then assemble their only other more prominent iteration as they drafted flashy point guard Cheap Jason Williams Jersey in 1998, traded for All-Star Cheap Chris Webber Jersey, and signed Serbians’  Cheap Vlade Divac Jersey and their 1996 first-round selection Cheap Peja Stojakovic Jersey, forming what would be known as “The Greatest Show on Court.”

The Sacramento franchise went to the 2002 Western Conference Finals, where they lost to the Los Angeles Lakers. The current Kings haven’t made the playoffs since 2007.

Hopefully, there’s a future Kings team out there that can win the ring and join the 1950-51 Rochester Royals as champions.

Kings guard Buddy Hield didn’t have any second thoughts about going public with his displeasure over his situation last year and doesn’t believe his relationship with head coach Luke Walton needs to be fixed, writes Jason Anderson of The Sacramento Bee.

“I have no regrets,” Hield said today during a Zoom session with the media. “There’s nothing to be worked on. I never had a problem with nobody here, so everything that was being heard, it wasn’t put out by me. I love everybody here in this franchise and this organization, so I don’t regret nothing I said. I’m going to keep it 100.”

Hield’s unhappiness first emerged when Walton began leaving him on the bench in the fourth quarter of some close games, and it got worse when he was removed from the starting lineup in January. Hield contributed as Sacramento won 13 out of 20 games prior to the shutdown, but he remained upset about how Walton was using him.

The departure of Bogdan Bogdanovic, who signed an offer sheet with Atlanta that the Kings didn’t match, may open the door for Hield to become a starter again. However, Walton wasn’t ready to commit to that as training camp began.

“Even last season, Buddy started more than half of the season, and when he didn’t start, he played a huge role for us coming off the bench and being a dynamic 20-point-a-night scorer,” Walton said. “Every decision is always based on what I feel is best for the group and best for the team, and with this training camp, this is part of what we have to see. What do we have? What groups are playing well together? Who complements who? And at the end of the day, every decision that gets made will come down to what I feel as the head coach is best for this team and giving us the best chance of winning.”

Hield responded to Walton’s statement by saying he’s ready to earn a starting role and will do anything the coaching staff asks of him.

“I always love competing and it doesn’t matter,” Hield said. “That’s not my job. I don’t control that. The head coach controls that. They brought me here to play basketball and win basketball games, so whatever they need me for, I’m going to do it and try to compete at the highest (level) I can.”

The Atlanta Hawks offered the Sacramento Kings a 2022 first round pick belonging to the Oklahoma City Thunder in a sign-and-trade for Cheap Bogdan Bogdanovic Jersey, sources tell Sam Amick of The Athletic.

The Kings rejected the offer, which led the Hawks to be concerned that their four-year, $72 million offer sheet to Bogdanovic would be matched.

The pick from the Thunder is lottery protected in 2022 and converts to second rounders in 2024 and 2025 if it doesn’t convey as a first rounder. With the Thunder entering a rebuild, the pick is likely to convert to two second rounders, which could be valuable if they have a prolonged rebuild.

The Kings decided not to match the offer sheet due to the logjam with Cheap Buddy Hield Jersey and Cheap Tyrese Haliburton Jersey.
