Sacramento Kings fans partied like it was 1989 at Sleep Train Arena ahead of the team's home-opener against the L.A. Clippers.

Players like Demarcus Cousins say they have big plans to surprise the rest of the N.B.A. in the 2015-2016 season, and fans are ready for that surprise.

Aaron King, the fan with the perfect name, says he is excited about the possibilities because of what the organization has put together.

"I think they got all the talent. I think they are doing the right things with the right ownership....so it looks good," King said.

Aaron's 7-year-old son, Aiden, is still learning the game, but he knows what he likes about coming to Sleep Train Arena.

"I like where they play and I like where the thing goes up," Aiden said.

It is not just new players that will be different when you come to a game, you will now have to go through metal detectors before you go into the arena, so make sure you allow plenty of time.

Kings fans were treated to another group of celebrities last night that were not playing in the game. Sacramento's three hometown heroes were honored for their efforts in stopping a terrorist attack on board a train in France.

Anthony Sadler, Spencer Stone and Alek Skarlatos received glass sealed NBA Basketballs and a lifetime supply of pizza from Pizza Guys.

"It's pretty cool I've been in games in the stands before it feels a little different when you're down on the court. It's pretty cool for sure," Sadler told KCRA 3 News.

The brother of Alek Skarlatos accepted the award on his brother's behalf. Spencer Stone appeared in good spirits as he continues to recover from stab wounds he received in a fight earlier this month.

Unfortunately, the Kings fell to the Clippers in the home opener 111 to 104.
