that push is only coming from Washington state.

The Sacramento market has been proven to be more profitable, and will bring even more money to the new revenue sharing model that the league is implementing. A sale to Sacramento would increase the value of all franchises more than if the sale goes through to Seattle not just in terms of profitability, but ownership as an investment.

Seattle is getting an expansion franchise soon.

They aren't getting this one.

Finna cop a Cousins SS jersey when I get the chance. Really think he'll turn around with the move.

and I understand y'all hurt and all but it happens. Kings used to be a Cincy team, I wish they came here tbh.

Everyone in orange county were absolutely positive they were getting the kings 2 years ago too. It's a done deal, allowing the Seattle group to bid on the team was just a way for the old owners to make more money on the sale to Burkle and Mastrov. David Stern already approved Burkle's downtown arena and everything.


looks like u guys up there will just have to root for the trailblazers instead. close enough right?

They're just stalling right now.

Everyone in the NBA wants the Sonics back. No one wants to see a Kings team that plays in front of, what? maybe a 5 thousand crowd on a good day? Plus this is a change of scenery that Cousins needs.

Not only does Sacramento have the best rate of attendance of all time of any city in the NBA, it is also highly more profitable for the revenue sharing stream for the league than the Seattle market. The league knows this, the NBA board of governors knows this. Only (some of) Washington wants to see the Kings move. 57% of Seattle residents polled by The Seattle Times said they would rather have no SuperSonics than have Chris Hansen take Sacramento's team. It doesn't matter, Burkle and Mastrov already have a better deal than Hansen's, David Stern has made it clear he is going with Burkle and keeping the Kings where they belong.

For once I thought the eastern conference was better than the western, but I guess I was wrong? Those w/l don't hold a candle to the west's competition.

LOL at anyone thinking the Eastern Conference overall is better than the Western Conference.

If I was the OKC or LAC front office, I'd sell the team to a higher income earning East Coast city so their trips to the Finals would be more easier than in the West..

I'm no math expert, but I would assume they (as in the Lakers) have to play .800 at least from now until the end of regular season to even come close to touching the 8th seed

Both the Lakers and Celtics are done..it's time for new young teams to rise up

im a huge rondo fan but i agree when they say that rondo can kill the ball movement of the Cs. without him in there it's much more free-flowing. hope he work on that part of his game while he's injured
