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.

The architects for investor Chris Hansen on Tuesday also outlined ideas to make the facility environmentally sustainable, from capturing and reusing rainwater to solar heating and generating energy for the surrounding neighborhood.

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..

Fuckin Lakers man we threw last nights game away. We will make dem playoffs tho best believe 7th seed and play spurs in 1st round knock em
Jan 31, 2013 @ 18:02
Lakers ain't gonna make it near the playoffs
Feb 01, 2013 @ 01:55
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

He's cute? I bet he ain't #Hansum

It's the true-PG problem: players stay flat-footed anticipating the PG to create a play out of nothing, really. Honestly, it's a bit of bad coaching on Rivers' part. If Rondo had players that moved and helped him (Rip Hamilton-esque players), the Celtics would be in the top 3 in the East.

^they lost their rip hamilton esque player to the heat

I don't agree. Rondo hardly hit Ray on those curls and Rip and Ray played the same role. Rondo like NFL QB finds favorites. Celts have players great at making cuts and moves hence the current win streak (Lots of off ball shit going down). Rondo always went down with a mindset and never went away from it even when it was bad news. The bad coaching on Rivers would only be in the lineups and letting Rondo play the way he did for so long. What Rondo needs is a defense that causes a decent amount of turnovers and plays solid defense something the Celts have lacked all year until now. We cause more TOs per game and more fastbreak points per game since Rondo has went down. Also bench is gel'n more due to more play time. That is the reason the Celts are winning.

what does that have to do with what I said? I am and they're gonna win the west, doesn't invalidate my fact either way. I don't need to show support for them and ride dick (aka u witha knicks since melo came to town). You guys are second for the first in a, continuously, whack eastern conference, chill every time someone mentions the knicks, they ain't paying your broke badn wagoning ass.

Lol, not even going to try and attempt to read this again. Just because it's a forum doesn't give you the green light to write paragraphs at a third grade level.

Then again english isn't your first language.
