then its time to start a bigtime Rob Burkle movement here in Sac
Great, great article. Very interesting, amusing and sad all at the same time. The way I look at it, logic is on the side of Sacramento keeping the Kings in Sacramento, but precedent seems to be on the side of the Maloofs, as to my knowledge the NBA never has forced owners to sell in this type of situation. Here's hoping logic wins out.
SACRAMENTO KINGS - A Family Tradition - The passion runs deep with fans of this team.

Jim Capers once called a foul on me while I was sitting on the bench. Tweet! "Foul, number fifty-three! Five-three!" Everybody was confused and looking around for number 53, so I stood up and said, "I'm over here and the only thing I'm fouling is the water bottle." - Darryl Dawkins
I see some similarities to the situation with the Hornets -- scumbaggery on the part of an owner who didn't have enough money. As I understand it, the league took ownership from George Shinn and eventually sold the team to Saints owner Tom Benson. Did Shinn ask the league to take the team or did the league force him to give it up? I'd appreciate hearing from someone who knows more about this situation that I do.

It's true.. The Maloofs probably thought we couldn't come up with the funding or the arena deal, and when it was done they tried to find any way possible to get out of it and they succeeded.
That last paragraph nailed it. The Maloofs are barely wealthy enough to run an NBA club with the bare minimum of salary paid to players/coaches/office staff and they want to move the team to a place that will give them what would probably equate to the best deal out of all of the owners in the NBA. OR, force them to sell and everything gets done here in Sac and we keep an already successful market in the NBA. Geez tough choice..
THANK YOU MAYOR JOHNSON!
Thank you Vivek Ranadive!

If only we can get a swap like the Buffalo Braves and San Diego Clippers had........
