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.
