    In a story with many chapters, it’s fitting that the book on the Maloofs’ future in the NBA will be written on April 12-13 at the league’s Board of Governors meetings. After all, it’s where the tide turned for Kings fans last year, as Kevin Johnson came out of nowhere with both the will and…

    It’s all about the money. It’s always been about money when it comes down to getting a new arena built in Sacramento and keeping the team in that city.

    It’s been a while since we checked into the Sacramento Kings’ arena situation, which almost faced another crucial moment on Tuesday when the Sac City Council meeting was set to turn into a shootout at the Cowbell Corral. On one side, arena opponent and council member Sandy Sheedy was ready to force debate on whether…

    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.…

    Sometimes you need to see the look in somebody’s eyes when they’re forced to make a decision before you truly know how they feel. We got to see that on Tuesday night when the Sacramento City Council voted 7-2 to approve $550,000 to secure consultants, lawyers, and parking experts to start formalizing a funding proposal…

    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 lockout has stopped Sacramento Kings Jimmermania marketing efforts — they can’t even talk about the guy, let alone show him off all over town — it has not stopped the drive to get a new arena built. It can’t, the deadline has not changed. If by next March the NBA owners are not…

    Champaign corks should be popping. Horns should be honking in downtown as people in cars shout “here we stay.” There should be spontaneous parties in the street.
