    Happy to see the Kings stay in Sacramento, but the most brutal thing from yesterday was Stern saying, 'This is going to be quick for me. I've got a game to get to in Oklahoma City, but the Board of Governors has voted against relocation.' Double stomach punch to Seattle in just a few sentences.

    I think the NBA is going to use Seattle the way Los Angeles is used for the NFL. It's always a bargaining chip to hang potential relocation over a franchise's head to strong arm cities into paying for stadiums.

    The Maloof era in Sacramento, at times spirited and uplifting, at times dismal and depressing, appears to have come to an end.

    A Sacramento investors group has reached a deal with the Maloof family to buy the Kings for an NBA record valuation of $535 million, a source has told The Sacramento Bee...

    That's it. The nightmare for Kings fans is over. Thanks to all of you here who helped give moral support. I look forward to meeting those of you who travel to Sacramento to see the Pacers-Kings play. I'll even introduce you to Crown Downtown's Mike Tavares.

    Can you nutshell it for me as to who will own and take over the Kings now?

    Is Keith Smart still under contract and for how long?

    I'm guessing that the new Owners will want a new GM?

    This is David West, he is the Honey Badger, West just doesn't give a *****....he's pretty bad *ss cuz he has no regard for any other Player or Team whatsoever.

    Keith Smart is under contract for one more year, but that's inconsequential. Vivek Ranadive, who heads our new ownership group, will be cleaning house as far as the coaching staff. We don't know many details yet.

    There are 30+ investors in the new ownership group. If you really want to keep up on all things Kings, check out my home website at www.kingsfans.com It would be easier than me taking up any more of the fantastic hospitality Hicks and you other Pacer fans have shown me.

    And the new group isn't wasting any time. Although the website hasn't been completely redesigned yet, there's a new greeting when you go to kings.com...

    Seen "Long live the Kings"... Very inspiring considering all Sacramento Kings fans have been through after the early success of the Maloof era.
    Welcome back to the competitive side of the NBA, Sacramento. It should be fairly clear that the Maloofs spent the last few years alienating the fan base & city to grease the rails to slide right out of town.
