The NBA playoff series between the Sacramento Kings and Golden State Warriors has been a fun one to watch, and not just for the great basketball being played on the court.

The series, now tied at two games apiece after the Warriors’ 126-125 win over the Kings on Sunday, has been the talk of the playoffs.

Meanwhile, Anjali Ranadive, the 30-year-old daughter of Sacramento Kings owner Vivek Ranadive, has been generating a lot of buzz of her own.

A singer and songwriter who has also gone by the names Anjali World and Nani, her second single was called “Nobody” and featured Tyga and Sage the Gemini.

Ranadive is also the founder of the non-profit organization Jaws & Paws and serves as the assistant general manager for the Stockton Kings G League team.

She has a degree in marine science from UC Berkeley, thus her interest in marine and wildlife conservation.

“Jaws and Paws is an organization run by women that aims to protect wolves and raise awareness for endangered species and animal rights worldwide,” reads the About Us page on jawsandpaws.org.

“We save wolf dogs and other species from abuse or neglect and provide a permanent loving residence for them.

“Our mission is to make a difference for animals while promoting women’s rights and environmental awareness.”

Prior to the assistant GM role with the Stockton Kings, Anjali Ranadive was the Sacramento Kings’ social responsibility coordinator.

She has over 160,000 followers on Instagram and another 41.6 K over on Twitter.

Her father, Vivek Ranadive, is the founder and former chief executive officer of TIBCO Software and Teknekron Software Systems and is reportedly worth over $700 million.

He also owns the Sacramento River Cats Minor League Baseball franchise – a team in the Pacific Coast League and the Triple-A affiliate of the San Francisco Giants.

He was previously a co-owner and the vice chairman of the Golden State Warriors.
