Fountains at Roseville hosts Kings rally Saturday

Don't sell that Kings apparel just yet - it may come in handy on Saturday night during a Kings rally and player meet-and-greet at Fountains at Roseville.

Kings forward DeMarcus Cousins will be greeting fans at the event, which also features a chance to win an original signed ball from the Kings' heyday (think Chris Webber/Mike Bibby era), according to a Fountains news release.

The event is from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at the community stage area of the shopping center. Cousins is scheduled to appear during the last hour.

Gloria Wright, the Fountains' center manager, will interview Cousins about his favorite moments of the season.

The event is just one of the many pieces of a partnership that Fountains has had with the Kings in recent years. Players, the Kings dancers and Slamson have been featured at past events, Wright said in a phone interview.

"They have been an integral part of our First Fridays," she said. "This is sort of capping off this year's contract."

Twenty fans will be chosen during the event to compete for the title of "King for the Day." Basically, the fan most decked out in Kings gear (apparel, costumes, signage) wins.

Those 20 fans chosen also will be eligible to get one of their Kings items autographed by Cousins, and can take a photo with Cousins with their own camera, the release states.

Other Kings prizes will be given out during the event.

Fountains is located at the corner of Galleria Boulevard and Roseville Parkway in Roseville.

About Comments

Reader comments on are the opinions of the writer, not The Sacramento Bee. If you see an objectionable comment, click the "report abuse" button below it. We will delete comments containing inappropriate links, obscenities, hate speech, and personal attacks. Flagrant or repeat violators will be banned. See more about comments here.

What You Should Know About Comments on is happy to provide a forum for reader interaction, discussion, feedback and reaction to our stories. However, we reserve the right to delete inappropriate comments or ban users who can't play nice. (See our full terms of service here.)

Here are some rules of the road:

• Keep your comments civil. Don't insult one another or the subjects of our articles. If you think a comment violates our guidelines click the "report abuse" button to notify the moderators. Responding to the comment will only encourage bad behavior.

• Don't use profanities, vulgarities or hate speech. This is a general interest news site. Sometimes, there are children present. Don't say anything in a way you wouldn't want your own child to hear.

• Do not attack other users; focus your comments on issues, not individuals.

• Stay on topic. Only post comments relevant to the article at hand. If you want to discuss an issue with a specific user, click on his profile name and send him a direct message.

• Do not copy and paste outside material into the comment box.

• Don't repeat the same comment over and over. We heard you the first time.

• Do not use the commenting system for advertising. That's spam and it isn't allowed.

• Don't use all capital letters. That's akin to yelling and not appreciated by the audience.

You should also know that The Sacramento Bee does not screen comments before they are posted. You are more likely to see inappropriate comments before our staff does, so we ask that you click the "report abuse" button to submit those comments for moderator review. You also may notify us via email at Note the headline on which the comment is made and tell us the profile name of the user who made the comment. Remember, comment moderation is subjective. You may find some material objectionable that we won't and vice versa.

If you submit a comment, the user name of your account will appear along with it. Users cannot remove their own comments once they have submitted them, but you may ask our staff to retract one of your comments by sending an email to Again, make sure you note the headline on which the comment is made and tell us your profile name.
