    LA already has 2 teams - if you include the Clippers.

    Seattle is the logical choice to get the Kings - the Flying Dutchman of the NBA - Cinncinati and Kansas City Royals........

    It is already a done deal from what I've read. Sacramento had the chance to keep the team and blew it.

    I'm sure it has nothing to do with money. :rolleyes:

    The NBA would move all of it's teams to N.Y. and L.A. if they could get away with it.

    The King's Stadium is a pile of rubbish with only 30 luxury boxes. The Maloufs have been trying to get the city to step up to the plate for a decade and build a new venue.....Sacramento voters put the final nail in the proverbial coffin when they voted down a quarter-cent sales tax increase to fund construction.

    The Maloof Brothers tried keep the team in Sacramento because of the fan support. But lacking a new NBA quality venue, the team is doing the only thing it can do as a business model—move. They have already picked out the new name for the team. They recently trademarked both the Anaheim Royals and the Los Angeles Royals.....


    Sorry, Sacramento, but you only have yourself to blame! :lol::lol:

    PS- the NBA still has to approve the deal- but they will - there are over 15 million people in the 4 county area- more than enough to support another NBA team. Honda Center in Anaheim is 35 miles from Staples....

    The people of Sacramento didn't want their taxes raised just so they could keep the privilege of seeing a bunch of assholes score 100 points in increments of 1, 2 and 3.

    Good for them. The NBA has plenty of money, they should have just built another stadium themselves if they thought it was important.

    But you see, apparently fan opinion don't count for shit in the NBA.

    Good for the voters of Sacramento for not giving into sports socialism.
