Hebrews 13:5 – Miserable Fans

Meet the most miserable fans in the NBA.

When it comes to miserable sports fans, the Sacramento Kings stand head and shoulders above everyone. The franchise hasn’t won a championship since moving to Sacramento in 1985.

The King haven’t made the playoffs since 2006 which is the longest drought in the NBA. They’ve had nine coaches since 2007 and haven’t advanced in the playoffs since 2004, meaning fans under the age of 21 barely remember the glory days.

It gets worse, Kings fans have had to watch Lakers fans celebrate five championships since 2000 and Warriors fans celebrate their current three-championship dynasty.

However, there is a positive spin on things. At least they still have a professional team in Sacramento. From 2010-13 the organization was under constant threat of relocating to Anaheim or Seattle. Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson was successful in saving the franchise with the help of local business owners and a passionate fan base.

Do you ever look on social media and notice the happy amazing life everyone else seems to be living compared to yours?

We’ve all been there. The upside of social media is that we get to keep up with everyone’s life. The downside is that we get to keep up with everyone’s “fantastic” life, at least filtered.

And we often find ourselves comparing our life to their life and wanting what they have.

When you find yourself struggling to be content, remember what God says in Hebrews 13:5 “Your life should be free from the love of money. Be satisfied with what you have, for He Himself has said, I will never leave you or forsake you.”

Just like Kings fans, be thankful for what you have. Things can always be a lot worse. The Kings are making strides in the right direction, so work hard and your break will come.
