Small Market, Big Heart is a feature-length documentary that shares the compelling 26 year story of the people of Sacramento and their battle to get and keep a professional sports franchise, the Sacramento Kings. The story has many heroes, but one common theme: a community with a huge heart. It is a emotional journey that appeals to sports fans and non-sports fans alike because it shows the power of community and how ordinary people can come together to do extraordinary things through the platform of social media.

Shows the heart and dedication of a smaller market team faced with the possibility of losing the team to relocation
25 June 2012 | by (Apple Valley, CA) – See all my reviews

Okay, first off, I am a huge Laker fan and was a little apprehensive in watching a feature film about the Sacramento Kings. After watching the film in its entirety, I am glad that I am an even bigger sports fan and can truly appreciate this story. Watching this film document from the beginning (with the move from Kansas City) to present day with all the interviews from all pertinent involved parties was fantastic. Being from Southern California and not fully realizing the situation, it is very informative and heart warming. Fans of every team should be able to relate to the die hard fan's desire to keep their team in their city, no matter the costs. The small town feel makes it that much more likable. As a die hard Laker lover, I appreciate the rivalry we had with the Kings in the earlier part of this century and hope that they can stay in Sacramento and become viable again. I, for one, would not welcome the "Royals" to Anaheim and actually still root for the Clippers to return to San Diego...hahahaha...but in all seriousness, this film is excellent from start to finish and I would recommend it to not just fans of any NBA team but fans of any major sports team...ESPN needs to grab this or even better, NBATV should be showing this on their channel.
