  • @BMayNews10: I asked George, if BoG votes down 65%, wouldn't they also vote down 20%. "I can sell to whoever I want to."

  • I want this to get muddy, it's beyond just getting the Sonics back, it's personal. Anyway that smears Stern and makes him looks like more of a disgrace to professional sports the better for me. This episode along with the Sonics original relocation in addition to the ref gambling scandal a few years ago(Yeah, only one guy involved I'm sure - end sarcasm) should rightfully be an albatross around Stern's neck.

    Nope. But the NBA would sure love for you (and the Hansen and Maloof groups) to believe that.

    The Seattle group isn't going to back down. They believe the sale will be approved and there is a rumor that they have heard from enough owners to support this theory. Hansen's group is hoping the owners will approve the sale or offer expansion so they don't have to go to court.

    Don't listen to the media. They're the least knowledgeable of anyone when it comes to what's happening and what will happen in the future. In fact, much of what you're hearing is just propaganda coming straight from the NBA offices. Or it's just pure conjecture.

    I've heard ridiculous reports that the Maloofs can't sue and could be forced to sell. Both points are blatantly false and such a statement shows a complete ignorance of the law. The NBA could move for dismissal of an antitrust suit based on any number of reasons, but whether that case is dismissed or not is up to the judge hearing the motion - and nobody knows how that would turn out because it's up to the judge, not the NBA. It's just as likely (if not more likely) that a judge would allow the case to continue. And even if the suit was dismissed, it could be appealed all the way up to the Supreme Court, just like what happened in the American Needle case.

    I've also heard in the media that the owners are annoyed with Ballmer. How would anyone know that? And why would any owner be annoyed with Ballmer? The NBA might be annoyed with Ballmer and that would make sense, but the other owners?

    The owners don't care about NBA politics. They are businessmen and their own business interests come first. Anyone who tells you otherwise is full of it. Ultimately, the owners will vote for whatever they feel will be best for their own interests. And it's hard to argue against the immediate boost in value that all NBA teams will experience if they approve a sale of the Kings for $625 million. If the Kings are worth that, what does that do for the top 16 markets? You're talking about hundreds of millions here.

    So don't get too up or down based on what you're hearing here, in the media, or anywhere else. If you really want to feel better, just take peace knowing that the Seattle group is going to put up one hell of a fight and has no plans to back down. And that the Hansen group believes they have enough owner support to win a vote on the sale (based on what they have heard directly from the other owners).

    I'm not saying I believe it, but the most convincing reason I've heard for the owners to keep the Kings away from HBN is that the Seattle arena deal will involve mostly the owners' $$ instead of public subidies, such as in Sac - the other owners supposedly don't want to establish this precedent.

    Puckett quoted McLoughlin as saying he "doesn't know" how it will turn out. Then said the same thing when he was on with Softy, I'm almost positive that's a misquote/misprint by Daniels.

    They didn't kiss Stern's ass the way the Sac group did and include them on every detail and movement, is what it means. Basically saying that Stern's ego is once again playing a big role because Hansen didn't treat him the way he thinks he should be treated

    According to Mitch this morning, everything HBN has done they've received the OK from the league and other owners. But the fact that Stern disclosed everything with Sac is where the lawsuit can come in play, which is an entirely different point...

    But this is why Ballmer was so upset after the relo committee vote because they have done everything WITH the league. He felt betrayed

    Just had the longest talk I've had with George Maloof in over a year. He said they've never said they wouldn't sell to Sac group

    I asked George why they agreed to 20% backup offer. "It's a way for them (H/B) to get into the league."

    Right now is the exact time when you should NOT take quotes as honesty. I'm not reading anything into that quote because it's a PC answer to a question. The Maloofs made their intentions very clear when their source "leaked" that they would not sell to Sac.

    Maloofs also reiterated that they are behind Chris Hansen 100%, why are you ignoring that quote?

    Just had the longest talk I've had with George Maloof in over a year. He said they've never said they wouldn't sell to Sac group

    Right now is the exact time when you should NOT take quotes as honesty. I'm not reading anything into that quote because it's a PC answer to a question. The Maloofs made their intentions very clear when their source "leaked" that they would not sell to Sac.

    Maloofs also reiterated that they are behind Chris Hansen 100%, why are you ignoring that quote?



    I'm not, they are 100% committed to seeing the Hansen sale through. They are saying if both sales are denied they will review the Sacramento offer. Maloofs only care about Maloofs, people are thinking they are going to support us/sue, it's just not going to happen. (the last sentence is my opinion)

    Can you link to the interview please?

    Yes I understand this is twitter.[/quote]

    I requested a link to the interview, not a twitter account that has KJ as their background picture.

    Said he thinks he knows how it is going to turn out tomorrow, but there are still “lots of scenarios”. #NBAKings

    Him saying this does not make me feel good. I think the "lots of scenarios" is in reference to H/B/N.


    How's it bad??

    To me that's good, but then again Im already prepared for them to be turned down and HBN to take these foo's to court.

    It has nothing to do with their support for us. It has everything to do with not wanting to be forced to accept a low ball offer more than 65+ million less than what's currently on the table. You think the Maloofs will say, "well we tried Chris but that offer for 65+ million less sure looks appealing" because I don't. I think 65+ million is worth fighting the NBA over. They would never sue the NBA out of obligation to Hansen, they will sue the NBA to get that 65+ million that they NBA is preventing them from receiving.

    Sorry Gramps, welcome to the digital age. He's a local reporter who did an interview, if you want to wait for the sacramento news at 11 or the newspaper to come out for a more "official" source go ahead.

    The fact you are here on a forum thread discussing this but then call out the legitimacy of twitter reporting is hilarious.

    Gramps? What an idiotic post. You have no idea what my age is. This post to me is as speculative as your twitter link. The guy has an obvious bias in this situation. Just because you are told to swallow it does not mean that you cannot spit.

  • The NBA, or Stern's part of it, are trying to float out the narrative that Hansen, Ballmer, and the Maloofs are trying to extort and bully the NBA into going their way. By saying that a Sacramento offer hasn't been completely disregarded nor would it be in the future could very well be an indication of them caving in the long run, but it's just as likely a tone setting message that HBN and the Maloofs are focused on how strong their deal is, and now being "bullies".

    You are arguing that the interview never took place, because he has a sacramento bias. You are arguing this reporter misreported quotes because he's from Sacramento, and obviously reporters in sacramento can't be trusted to copy a quote to their phone.


    Everyone is going to have a different interpretation of the quote, and you're free to feel encouraged by it, but to say it's a false quote because you don't want to hear it is silly.

    Hearsay is information gathered by one person from another person concerning some event, condition, or thing of which the first person had no direct experience.


    I'm taking information gathered by a sacramento reporter (who had direct experience, as result of his interview) and posting it here. So not really hearsay.

    The NBA can force them to take a lower offer. It happened with the Oracle CEO Larry Ellison and GoldenState potential deal. http://online.wsj.com/article/SB1000142 ... 42570.html

    I don't think the Malloofs can sue the league due to agreements. I think that was the point of the Hansen and 20% deal, to work it as some sort of leverage. Maybe as a minority owner he could then buy up other minority owners and get control of the team and do pretty much as he wishes

    Nope, that was ownership who didn't take the Ellison bid, not the BOG rejecting Ellison. And yes the Maloofs can sue the NBA even though there is a clause that "prevents" basically every legal analyst who's weighed in has said there are work arounds and the clause is pretty much meaningless.
