    NBA executives, Mayor Johnson, and Gavin Maloof meet

    I wrote on Thursday about the recent developments in the Sacramento Kings arena situation, and namely the Maloofs’ recent actions that amount to a legal full court press designed to land the franchise in Anaheim. The quick and dirty to catch you up is this – the Maloofs, Sacramento, AEG, and the NBA came to…

    David Stern took a moment to address the Kings arena situation in Utah before Wednesday’s game against the Suns.

    I interviewed Carmichael Dave, the person most synonymous with Sacramento’s grassroots effort to keep their basketball team, way back on April 5, 2011. The Kings were all-but gone by most accounts, and I asked Dave what he thought the Kings’ chances of leaving were. “90-10.” It turns out that he might have been a bit…

  5. NBA doing the Maloofs’ talking for them

    Los Angeles Lakers v Sacramento Kings

    The Maloofs’ relationship with Sacramento is decidedly love-hate. When the Kings were winning and Joe and Gavin were plastered on TV during games, Sacramentans were ready to propose. But it’s funny how life works — the team started losing and (gulp) started asking the city of Sacramento for money, and everything has been downhill since.…

    The plight of Kings fans, who came within an inch of losing their only major professional sports team, may be coming to a crossroads today, when the Think Big Sacramento coalition led by mayor Kevin Johnson releases their arena funding proposal to the public.

    While the NBA stumbles all over itself trying to divide up a multi-billion dollar pie, the folks in Sacramento are making moves to put their own pie into the oven.
