Kings fans are giving Vivek Ranadive and his new ownership group a stamp of approval by showing up in numbers not seen in Sacramento since 2007.

This season's average of nearly 16,000 fans a game markes a 24% improvement over last year's NBA-worst 13,700 fans per game.

Kings President Chris Granger calls it, "A testament to our fans."

"They fought to keep us in Sacramento and continue to show their passion through unwavering support at our games," Granger continued. 

The Dallas Maverics continue to lead the Western Conference in attendance, with over 19,800 fans per game.
