    I have a question.
    The Cooks and Maloofs have agreed to sell to Hansen, can the NBA force them to sell to the Sac. group? What if Hansens group has offered more money, can the owners be forced to sell for less?

    No, they can't force the Maloof's to sell to the Sacramento group
    But they can pressure them to do so.

    No, even if they reject the Hansen/Balmer deal the Malloofs will still own the team.

    why doesnt cry baby Kevin give up already?
    I dont see why Kevin Johnoson is trying so hard to keep the Kings in sacramento. shoot california has how many pro sport teams? my sources say that seattle is going to get the sonics back. it doesnt matter how much money KJ puts behind him. it doesnt actually mean that he gets the deal with the maloofs. besides that didnt CH front them 30 million to set the deal to sell the team anyway. the way i see it is sacramento is just wasting time. but we will see next week. SEATTLE SONICS are coming back.

    Not looking good for Sac Town
    The thing no one seems to be talking about it the Hanson Ballmer group has a binding agreement to buy the team with the Maloofs. This means no matter how much money the Sacramento whales come up with they cant even talk to the Maloofs. Once the binding agreement is signed it means you can no longer keep taking bids or even talk to other parties about selling without facing a massive law suit.

    Nobody wants the team!.
    Have a going out of buisness sale in Sacramento. Tax payers would rather spend thier monies on crappy art all around Seattle to remind how stupid goverment is. Goverment has no buisness being in the buisness of buisness its just bad buisness for the tax paying public.

    Wow, that was probably your most incoherent post to date. Would you like to repeat yourself in a manner that other people can read?

    Newton is a lib. It is very rare to find a lib who expresses coherent thoughts.
    His thoughts are just like CH and so many of his lib friend - farts in a whirlwind.

    Actually...
    very few can rival the incoherence of a far right-wing nutjob in full song. So Newton has company, at the very least. :) I vote for democrats. Guess that makes me a "lib". I was in favor of the M's ballpark (although not by much), Seahawk Stadium (no-brainer) and now Hansen's arena (another no-brainer). I know plenty of democrats who felt the same way, each of whom can also put a sentence together! Imagine that.

    English
    It's "business" > not business

    their > not their

    money > not monies

    Government > not government It's > not its

    In the subject line you have punctuation marks, an exclamation mark and a period.

    Only 1 is required.

    Let the People Vote. Seattle and Sacramento. You will find Nobody wants this dump called the NBA. Unless those that want to bring it to the city pay for it "all" themselfs, with out any monies from the public. Understand you wingnuts.

    Ah the irony
    I love how the same people who whined and called the people who moved the sonics to OKC all sorts of names now are rooting for the same thing in reverse.

    We just want a team back, should have never left in the first place and if this is how it has to go down then so be it. I take it you're not a sports fan?

    fan? LOL
    I am a sports fan, something this cesspool of a state knows little about, I have never seen so many whining, 2 faced losers in my life. But this being the epicenter of liberal stupidity, I should not be surprised when you idiots expect things to be ok for you, but not for others.
