Are we not men?

No, we are RATS!!

It seems to me that David Stern will impose his will whenever and wherever he feels like it. And what makes it worse is some of his crony owners are on board with him. Today, the commissioner granted an extension to the Mallof brothers to file for relocation. This comes on the heels of the news of a potential buyer to keep the Kings in Sacramento.

Ron Burkle who is a co-owner of the Pittsburgh Penguins is willing to buy the team and keep them there. Not long ago in Seattle, Steve Balmer of Microsoft was wiling to buy the Sonics and keep them in Seattle. We all know how that ended up, Clay moved the team and all the Sonics history to OKC. To make matters worse, David Stern says a chance for a buyer to keep the team in Sacramento is "not a high priority right now." WHAT, are you kidding me??? To make matters worse for Kings fans, Mr. Stern today named Clay Bennett as the NBA relocation committee chairman! I smell some shenanigans going on here.

As a non-basketball fan who watched the fans suffer the fate of losing their franchise, my sympathies go out to the fan in Sacramento. Here's to hoping that things can work out better for you than they did to the Seattle SuperSonics fans.


  1. He isn't highly regarded in the Phoenix area---that's for sure.

  2. It's a shame that the Kings might have played their last game in Sacramento. I saw this video of their two broadcasters signing off for possibly the last time and both were choked up.

    I'm not a Kings fan by any means... but I definitely feel for their fans. The same video also showed some of the fans who stuck around after the game... with the same saddened faces.

    I truly hope they stay in Sacramento for their fans sake.
