NBA Delays Vote on the Sacramento Kings

The NBA’s Board of Governors isn’t quite ready yet to make a decision regarding the Sacramento Kings, and their possible move to Seattle. The vote has been postponed. Per the Sac Bee: “The Sacramento-Seattle fight over the Kings basketball team will last at least into next week. National Basketball Association officials said this afternoon the league has postponed this week’s planned decision on whether or not to permit the team to be sold to a Seattle group. Spokesman Tim Frank confirmed a report by Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn that the league’s Board of Governors, which meets Thursday and Friday, will not vote. League officials did not immediately state a reason for the postponement. NBA Commissioner David Stern hinted at a possible delay two weeks ago, when he told reporters the long-awaited decision might not come at the Board of Governors meeting in New York. The news came minutes after the Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson said his investment team is ready to submit a bid to buy the team that it believes can win favor with both the NBA and the Maloof family.”

    1. They’re going to Seattle.
    2. The Maloofs are up there as some of the worst owners ever.
    3. How crazy is it that the Kings will be the most expensive NBA team purchase?
    4. Sacramento really doesn’t deserve a team right now.

    Sacramento deserves a team as much as any other city. The city, the fans and the mayor are fighting very hard to keep them. If any city deserves to keep their team, it’s Sacramento. The Maloofs ARE the worst team owners ever, period.

    Maloofs ran Kings into ground 99 to 06 playoffs and now lottery team every year. Fan base is staying away.
