Per the SacBee, the Maloofs and the Sac group have reached a deal to sell the Kings at the amount of 535 million dollars. Game, set and match. No NBA for us for a LONG LONG time if ever.

Watch, after a couple of years of not being able to get an arena deal and a floundering market, they split for San Jose. Apparently it's what Hansen should have done all along.

I don't want to wait 10-15 years to get another NBA team. And "IF" we do get expansion I think that is the earliest we can possibly get one. Silver is just Stern 2.0.

MOU is only good for 5 years, the NBA knows this, 10-15 years is unrealistic, bruh.

If you were sitting there worrying about the Kings still, you're worrying about the wrong things.

No, I just worry about everything.....even things that someone shouldn't worry about.

So what happens to that non refundable 30 million dollars? I took that as the Seattle group would lose it if they backed out of the deal but if the Maloofs are then they should have to give it back. Seems a bit unfair but nothing with this has been fair.

30 million dollars is still a lo of money to piss away.

And if the Seattle group is being completely squeezed out now then screw it and start the lawsuits because of the binding agreements.

Can I say again that some of you are the sorriest pussies I've ever seen?

Chris is going to get us a team, period.

Also, want to thank our visitors from Sacramento for just letting me enjoy Sacramento's inevitable collapse as an extremely entertaining sideshow for the next couple of years. I might be a spiteful man, but I'm going to feed off of the misery of your little hole in the Earth.

Nope. Just a general post for the absolute defeatists who think this is the end of everything. If Chris marches on, so do I. I believe in this guy, I believe in the Sonics, I believe in this state of the art building. It's going to happen, and the last thing we need is a bunch of people jumping off the train, but if they do, I'd really rather you stay off when Chris delivers.

Lawsuits aren't looking like they'll happen, but I don't consider the prospect as a pussy move, it's fighting on in another way.

Fair enough, I guess I shouldn't give up yet. but that's not easy since we haven't had a single good thing go our way since they announced the sonics were sold. And David stern is a evil bitter old man with an obvious grudge against Seattle.

But I will continue my boycott of the nba until we get another team.

I still have faith in the Seattle group. Just not much in the nba.

Not a single good thing?

We had a very wealthy investment group come out with their passion project to bring the NBA back to Seattle.

We had our very difficult local political system go along with and endorse a plan for a state of the art, envelope pushing building (while Sacramento is getting some generic cookie cutter building).

We've had more victories than defeats with the Hansen group so far, and I find it hard to believe he just let go of all leverage he had in this situation for no reason. This guy offers concessions, but he gets to where he wants to be.

I don't see anything about the 7 percent in bankruptsy or the 20 percent that they were going to buy. All is quiet concerning this except the optimistic snippets from the sonicrising site thats been posted.

Coming away with nothing at all and no real big media splash after tells me that either Hansen has conceeded and is licking his teams wounds, or there is something else in the works that can't be let out of the bag. Losing something that has been so visable and talked about and not really having any major conference or retort about the sale to Sacramento just doesn't seem typical after the heavy commentary and aggressive action leading up to the meeting and the sale today.

This especially on the heals of Sterns opening statement that could only be taken as a shot which I doubt gets by Balmer or Hansen as a oopsie.

I'm talking about from the nba, it's awesome we have this group from Seattle wanting to do anything to bring a team here. I meant the nba who has used us as its biatch to scare other teams into caving into arena demands.

Do I think we'll eventually get a team? Probably but I'm just a little worn own right now after being repeadly kicked in the teeth by the nba.

People need a little time to be upset and vent before they relax a bit and start to think about the big picture. So I wouldn't read too much into the bitter comments right now. :)

From what I can tell the 20% is over with. The Maloofs are selling to Vivek. The 7% is still in play, and no bidders stepped up besides Hansen. He could very well still buy that piece of the team.

I don't now if anybody was listening to Mitch at around 7:30am or so, but he brought up that the Seattle group was told that they'd need to commit to a timeline for an arena, and that if certain benchmarks were not met, the team would be sold back to the NBA, the Seattle group said hell to the no. I'm betting that the Sacramento group said "yes please stick it in whatever hole you want". I highly doubt the Kings are playing in Sacramento in 10 years, I doubt even more so that they're playing in an arena at the Downtown Plaza site. The current deal is absolute trash. Hansen may be waiting in the wings, watching this deal fall apart, and perhaps buying the team at that point or watching Vivek move the team elsewhere, who knows. Either way, I'm convinced that the Sacramento group have a very shaky deal based on what the NBA has requested. So either Sac loses the team or they bankrupt their city funding the only source of civic pride....because that city has literally zero to offer otherwise.

Forgive me for not reading all of this, been out of town dealing with a death in the family but in reading some of your responses, i am disappointed. We got FUCKED. No two ways about it and some of you are seriously seeing what you want to see. Stern imposed his will and capitalism lost. Lets call this what it is, Seattle got bent over... Period.

Edit: and why should H/B/N even consider another go at this. The better plan lost. Good business is not the goal. Invest in something that makes money.

From everything I've read it sounds like the owners were in Hansen's corner going into the vote but Stern did some "arm twisting" and got them to vote against. Supposedly Stern was extremely active during the vote.

F that guy.

No reason not to expand the league, Ved has stated and I have that the world is more into Basketball then ever before, it's not just an Americans game now and their is talent to be had not just withing our borders but the world. You can't tell me that adding two teams will delute that pool when you have argueably more talent then teams now compared to the 70's / 80/s / 90's. If your arguement is that we may not have enough Kobe's or La Brons or Durants thats weak since those player types are and always have been rare. As I stated in another thread, a good team can beat a group of guys that play one on one any day if they work together and play defense.

Yes thats an old school thought, but the Grizz are doing pretty well with it, Nate McMillian did well with it his time here in Seattle as a coach till he got the rug pulled from under him. It takes a good front office and coach to put that style of team together also. Celtics used that philosophy for years after Russell retired. They became legendary because of team work and playing together and busting their tales every night.

No reason not to expand the league, Ved has stated and I have that the world is more into Basketball then ever before, it's not just an Americans game now and their is talent to be had not just withing our borders but the world. You can't tell me that adding two teams will delute that pool when you have argueably more talent then teams now compared to the 70's / 80/s / 90's. If your arguement is that we may not have enough Kobe's or La Brons or Durants thats weak since those player types are and always have been rare. As I stated in another thread, a good team can beat a group of guys that play one on one any day if they work together and play defense.

Yes thats an old school thought, but the Grizz are doing pretty well with it, Nate McMillian did well with it his time here in Seattle as a coach till he got the rug pulled from under him. It takes a good front office and coach to put that style of team together also. Celtics used that philosophy for years after Russell retired. They became legendary because of team work and playing together and busting their tales every night.


Team basketball? Coaches who actually make schemes and gameplans? What an odd concept...

I know there is some pissyness with the debate here, understandable as we are all irritated by the actions of Stern and the NBA. Are we not allowed to trust Hansen and Ballmer but NOT trust the NBA???? .....because that's where I'm sitting at right now, that's why I feel not sueing is a mistake!

Naw, it's just business. There's a way to play the game. There's a time to play nice and a time to go nuclear. everyone in the HBN group are successful businessmen who know how to get deals done. This group has the ultimate "good cop/bad cop" set up with Hansen and Ballmer and there is a time and a place for each. Much like we trust that John Schneider is making the right choice when he picks that guy we've never heard of, we have to trust that HBN are making the right choice to play nice at this juncture instead of scorching the countryside. I think the NBA knows that Ballmer is like a frothing rabid dog on the end of a chain, so they'd rather keep playing the nice guy act with Hansen Less they need to deal with the dog.

This will get done. There's likely a few more layers of song and dance to go through, but it'll get done... I get the feeling that seeing Hansen out front is a good thing. If Ballmer is the one repping the group, things are going south.

I always thought Hansen and Ballmer had more of a good cop/Maniac Cop thing going on.

No one watches Leno so this one slipped by me

Phil Jackson is promoting his new book and is asked about Seattle/Kings relocation stuff. Says Hansen is a great person, would be great for the league and that Seattle is a terrific NBA city that needs a team (insinuates he would have taken FO job). Says he won't be a part of Sac. He then says he likes Sacramento, but not that much.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wnkYjFRYk8M

Seattle around 4 minute mark.

He called Sacramento a cow town back in that year when the Kings and Lakers were rivals. Didn't say anything inaccurate. I doubt the folks in Sac have forgotten that jab.

Sounds like Chris Hansen posted a letter on Sonicsarena.com indicating he is in for the duration and that he is talking to the NBA about possible expansion and or if other options become available ie Bucks and Bobcats is what the guys on KJR summized. Also said he is continueing to work the arena situation to get the last of the hurdles closed up.
