What do you expect for him to say? He has to get re-elected in Sacramento not Seattle. To him and their fans, Seattle is just OKC re-packaged. We may not feel that way but do you really think this is going down without a lot of blood spilled (figuratively) and emotions running high?
Yeah, no need to bash the Seattle fans but he needs to fire a shot across the fans bow as well as the Mayor's who is trumpeting up the purchase contract. I would just tune out anything from Sactown, not visit their sites and skip anything on twitter coming from Sactown or our local media guys who are reporting the blow-by-blow.
Folks are laughing at the 20 $1M dollar donors. Until you see the NBA has approved the sale and relocation is happening, I would try chilling. Once you get the team, then send KJ a nice steaming pile of pooh if you want. I saw the quotes. At least their city hall supports keeping them and they just may fool folks and get it done.
EDIT: "sale" not "sell"
