Re: 2012-13 Around the NBA thread

Except the Browns actually had a long history and success in their league.

I'm sure Kansas City felt just as cheated when Sacramento "stole" their team too. This is a franchise that has never been able to find a true home or success.

With the Lakers, Clippers and Warriors in CA, the Kings just didn't have much of a following.

I don't think Seattle necessarily needs a team, because if they had supported the Sonics and made ir more profitable for them to stay, they would not have lost the team in the first place. But, Stern wanted one thing before he retired, to be the man that brought a team back to Seattle. He's hoping that last act will somehow repair his legacy of unpopular decisions.

Re: 2012-13 Around the NBA thread

Sacramento for most of the Kings' stay there has had among the best, most passionate fans with sell out attendance. It's like the Browns because one city is losing its beloved team to another city that lost their own beloved team

Stern did not want a team back in Seattle. He's not an advocate of this move

Anybody else enjoying this LA Lakers meltdown?

Mitch Kupchak of Los Angeles Lakers says team's problem is effort, not Mike D'Antoni - ESPN Los Angeles


Dwight Howard is already starting to whine like a little bitch.

Sources -- Los Angeles Lakers growing concerned over unhappy Dwight Howard - ESPN Los Angeles


That's twice now. Guy is a assclown.

Guy seems like he doesnt want to play anymore. See no passion or effort.

Re: 2012-13 Around the NBA thread

He should have gone to Brooklyn. Better fit (no diva like Kobe to deal with) and better talent overall.

Plus, he would be the man in that town, not half the man like he is in his shared spotlight in LA.

I question his effort too after his statements about wanting to get into acting after basketball. I guess that explains his choice of LA over any other team, but I think it also explains his recent lack of success.

He's an impressive physical specimen, but I wouldn't want him on my team. He needs to be pampered to be happy.

Your sources are...living under a rock.


SLAM ONLINE | » David Stern Hopes Seattle Gets an NBA Team Within 5 Years

Quote:
The city of Seattle recently approved a plan to build a new arena that would house pro basketball and hockey teams. NBA commissioner David Stern says that he’d like to see a hoops team return to Seattle within five years. Per the Boston Globe: “Commissioner David Stern offered this little nugget on the future of basketball in Seattle, which just approved a new arena plan when talking to reporters in Milan, Italy. ‘It would be my hope that within the time frame that you mentioned, five years, that if everything works out perfectly, there would be a new arena and new team in Seattle. That’s always, for the board of governors, but I know that many governors are favorably inclined.’”

David Stern's final act as NBA commissioner: Promote the myth of David Stern - Yahoo! Sports

Quote:
Between now and his departure, Stern is determined to get a franchise back into Seattle, league sources said. He has become a strong ally of Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer's group to bring back the NBA there. Ballmer's group has been trying to get the Maloof family to sell the Sacramento Kings, so that the franchise can eventually play in a new arena in Seattle.

Same reason the Maloof brothers sent their lottery pick they drafted this year to a team for lesser value.


Money.

This Yahoo article absolutely destroys the Maloof brothers on this trade. He's right though.

Seems everybody knows this was about money. It generally is.

Can't tell you how often I used to watch BK play back during his days with the Bullets. He carried that team.
