The Kings/Sonics debate continues...
The mayor of Sacramento is starting to put his money where his mouth is. He doesn't want Seattle to take the Kings, so he's been having a few of his rich friends donate money to the cause. C'mon - we'd be doing the same thing. Yesterday he snagged another investor, just ya know... a billionaire! And now the Sacramento City Council has approved their new downtown arena plans. Yeah... it's not looking so great for us. Who else's team can we steal? ;) (source
UPDATE: Chris Hansen just agreed to buy an additional 7% share of the Sacramento Kings in order to bring them to Seattle. He already owns 65%. HOW ARE WE NOT GETTING THE KINGS THEN!?
