The Rock appeared on Sacramento radio station KFBK this morning and talked about the swirling rumors surrounding the Kings’ future in California’s capital. Based on his final NBA season spent in Los Angeles, he believes Southern California can support another pro basketball team. “I know Anaheim can because Anaheim has been trying to get the (Los Angeles) Clippers for a while. They’ve been trying to parlay and get the Clippers down there. Every time the Clippers play or the Lakers play there, they sell out. And I think that city gets tired of driving to LA for a game because they do have rich city in that area. And I think it probably can support them and that’s probably why they went that way.” You ask around to all these general managers and owners they would want the team to stay in Sacramento. It’s a great city. The city has been great to that team, been great for the NBA. And just really, really truly a sad, sad day (if) there would be no more Kings.” Listen to the entire interview here.
