PHOTOS: Sacramento Kings hold court on Capitol Mall

The Sacramento Kings held court on Capitol Mall yesterday.

Literally.

The team held its second annual “Rhythm ‘N Rims” event benefitting a number of local nonprofit charities.  They hosted a 5K run and an open practice for fans, featuring a full-sized court that was constructed between 8th and 9th streets in downtown Sacramento.  Photos from yesterday’s fan friendly event can be seen below:
