    From what I understand, that means the chances of Seattle getting the team just dropped to less than 25%. Since it passed with more than 2/3 vote, Sacramento is legally bound to submit an area and team ownership deal within the next two weeks.

    Wait......so we have less than a 25% chance on getting the Kings now whereas before this we had a very good chance to get them? Dangit..........

    Where are you getting this 25% number? Everybody I've read that's been covering this whole saga has said that vote means next to nothing in the big picture.

  • I would say that I bet there are some Longshoreman members here that would consider that a personal attack. Elitist mentality strikes again from people that evidently don't know the history of longshoreman. It's mechanized now a lot more but at one time nothing moved in this country without them and it was one of the most dangerous jobs you could have.

    I suppose Loggers and Miners, Fisherman, also fall into your imbecile category also.

    RT @FOX40: Source: Minority owner John Kehriotis wants to buy the #Kings without any city money invovled.

    RT @FOX40: Source tells @JimCrandell that Kehriotis has $350 million, with a verbal commitment of $400 million. #Kings

    Curtis Crabtree ‏@Curtis_Crabtree
    And I want an Aston Martin Vanquish, doesn't mean I can afford one. We'll see how realistic this minority owner's backing is. I'm skeptical.

    Here is the story with more info from fox40.com

    FOX40 News was told Monday night by a source, wishing to remain anonymous, about a new group led by current Kings minority owner John Kehriotis. Kehriotis currently holds 12.2% of the Kings franchise.

    According to the source, the group thinks it needs $750 million to buy the team and build the arena. The source, who is involved in the purchase effort, says the investment group currently has $350 million and a verbal commitment for $400. That would meet the goal.

    This plan, the source says, is not site specific. The group could consider the railyards, Downtown Plaza and the current arena site in Natomas.

  • I dont think it means anything, dudes only worth $360 million? compared to the money the Seattle group brings to the table? The NBA is going to look at that and think the best long term viability of the franchise is to go with the money team in Seattle, Sacramento's best shot is Burkle, not this guy.

  • It's all about the money. The NBA needs a team in Seattle. After they lost the Grizzlies they now have one area without teams that in the past had teams and supported them ( Sonics and Grizzlies) The Seahawks and Mariners also draws fans from the East states such as Idaho and Montana. A good Seattle team may well do so also.

    Sacramento is a smaller media market by quite a bit. It is served by teams already. The nearest is the Warriors. I see the NBA doing what is best for the league and Media deals, and its not staying in Sacramento.

  • Well according to reports Mayor Johnson is set to reveal his entire plan tomorrow at some point and time giving names of his whales, an arena plan and financing.

    The plot thickens, I personally see it as if Sacramento can get a deal that is close or equal too the Hansen/Ballmer groups deal then they are probably staying Sacramento.
