Down in the ValleyFriday 9/11 - 4:30 pm - Ruby G. Schulman Auditorium - Q&A
For three decades, Sacramento has been the improbable home to one of the NBA’s most improbable franchises: the Kings. Through the good, the bad, and the laughably ugly, Kings fans have always stood by their team. So when news broke in 2011 that the team was leaving, it sent shock space waves through the community. Fans awaited season ticket renewal forms that never came. Broadcasters wept openly on the air. All hope was lost ‹ until the city decided fight back.
At the helm was the city’s Mayor, Kevin Johnson, a Sacramento native and former NBA All-Star, who seemed uniquely positioned to play point guard for the comeback attempt. Through archival film, in-depth interviews and exclusive all-access footage, “Down In The Valley” follows this historic saga from the locker room to the board room as a city and its favorite son fight to pull off one of the greatest upsets in NBA history.
