California already has 4 teams... They'll be okay if they only have 3. Seattle has such great sports fans and any of u that follow the NFL should know what I'm talking about. The Seattle Seahawks probably have the best home crowd in the league. That town deserves a basketball team. Sorry ppl from Sacramento... Go cheer for another California team

Really? I didn't think so. I know they got their fans but I didn't think they were all "diehard" fans lol

Man, That's so sad that Sacramento won't have a team, their fans has one of the best fanbases in the NBA. I'm glad Seattle will have a team again but i wish the Kings would have came here where I'm at

No they do.

I remember the pre and during Mitch Richmond years.

They were awful but they'd sell out enough to be middle of the pack in the NBA, which was good for a small market area. For some reason it's been more so now that the fanbase has been lagging. Probably because of the Maloofs handling of the new arena and some backhanded statements towards the city.

I hope Rashard Lewis signs with them when he's an FA so I can wear my Lewis Sonics jersey again.

This is great news. I'm looking forward to seeing the Sonics play again. I always thought they were a great franchise with lots of history and a diehard fanbase but they got screwed in the worst way possible

I really have mixed feelings about this-

I want Sacremento to keep their team- the Maloofs to stay as owners- that is just "part" of the NBA

However, I also really want a team back in Seatle as that is such a rich Basketball city- also a "part" of our Basketball Culture...

This is a drag and a good thing too!!!!!

I hate change and hate loyal fans getting the brunt of the business / economy / political side of things!!!!!

:banghead:

This sucks for the city of Sacramento. All those good years were nice, but now, it's turning into a dump. I think this is a good move for the Maloofs to finally leave the NBA, unless they get a team going over here in Vegas :shakeshout:

Fortunately for the Seattle fans, they deserve a team and now they're getting one.

Goodbye, Sacramento. It was great supporting the Kings, but they're leaving Cali.

Reports say Maloofs may have rejected the offer

yeah the deal isn't done yet. I read another report that they denied the offer. There's people in Sacramento willing to buy it and they'll keep the team in sac town. As much as Seattle deserves a team, Sacramento shouldn't lose theirs for them to get a team again. Well see what happens
