    Charlotte Bobcats v Phoenix Suns

    Miami Heat LeBron James looks on during the first half of their NBA basketball game against the Golden State Warriors in Oakland

    It was one of the mantras of the players and their union during the lockout — the NBA owners claim poverty and lost money but they never talk about the increased value of the franchise during their ownership and the profits from that. The Maloofs bought the Kings 15 years ago in 1998 for $156…

    Dallas Mavericks v Los Angeles Lakers - Game One

    Whatever happens with the sale of the Kings, current GM Geoff Petrie will be gone. He is in the last year of his deal and is reportedly going to retire at the end of the season. Which is his smart way of stepping out of the inevitable. So who takes over? The new Seattle group…
