I am a SIXTH MAN

I still remember this moment

In the back of my mind
The time we stood with our shaking hands
The crowds in the stands went wild
We were the KINGS and the queens
And they read off YOUR names
The night you PLAYED like you knew our lives
Would never be the same
You held your head like a hero
On a history book page
It was the end of a decade
But the start of an age
Long live the walls we crashed through
While the ARENA lights shined just for me and you
I was screaming, long live all the magic we made
And bring on all the pretenders, TODAY you will be remembered
I said remember this feeling
YOU passed the BALL around
Of all the years that we stood there on the sidelines
FEARING for right now
We are the KINGS and the queens
You traded your JERSEY for a FROWN
When they gave YOU YOUR trophies
And YOU held them up for YOUR town
And the FANS are outraged
Screaming, this is absurd
‘Cause for a moment, a band of GREEDS
WITH BAD HAIR got to rule the world
Long live the walls we crashed through
While the ARENA lights shined just for me and you
I was screaming, long live all the magic we made
And bring on all the pretenders, WE are not afraid
Long live all the SHAQS that you moved
I had the time of my life fighting LAKERS with you
I was screaming, long live the look on your face
And bring on all the pretenders, TODAY you are remembered
Hold on to, RUNNING around
Confetti falls to the ground
May these memories break or fall
And I take a moment
Promise YOU this
That WE’LL stand by YOU forever
But if God forbid if fate should step in
And force us into a goodbye
WHEN I have children someday
When they point to the pictures
I WILL tell them YOUR name
Tell them how the crowds went wild
Tell them how MUCH YOU SHINED
Long live the walls YOU crashed through
I had the time of my life with you
Long live the walls we crashed through
While the ARENA lights shined just for me and you
I was screaming, long live all the magic we made
And bring on all the pretenders, WE are not afraid
Long live all the SHAQS that you moved
I had the time of my life fighting LAKERS with you
I was screaming, long live the look on your face
And bring on all the pretenders, TODAY you are remembered

This is my tribute to the Sacramento Kings. I know that the season may have ended, but they may not be leaving. They might be staying. All I have to say is that, they were a part of my life. I will always be a SACRAMENTO Kings fan. I was there when Robert Horry made that horrifying shot; I was there when Bibby made that fantastic three pointer; I was there for the punches, and falls; I was there for the sadness and the joys; and if they stay, I will be there for always.
