"You've heard that we're going to create what we think is going to be the most-talked-about arena on the planet" Granger told the TIBCO crowd. And that arena is expected to be environmentally friendly.

SCH: Sacramento Wins The Future

+

"That made for the strangest realization Monday. Owners did not back Sacramento in appreciation of what the city had meant to the league in past decades as waves of noise would crash down from inside the fieldhouse that was Arco Arena. Owners backed Sacramento because of what the city will mean. Nobody casts a vote with this kind of Monopoly money at stake as thanks for 10 or 20 years ago. This was about the future. If the outcome Monday itself wasn’t energizing enough for local officials and fans, that kind of endorsement should do it. This is about where the league thinks the city is going, not where it has been." - Scott Howard-Cooper

Yahoo's Eric Freeman critiques Chris Hansen in "Ball Don't Lie"

1

"There's always been something a little icky about Hansen's attempt to pry away the Kings — specifically, that a sale arguably more backwards than the one that turned the original Sonics into the Oklahoma City Thunder is taking place as part of a "Save Our Sonics" movement founded on the idea that Seattle was done wrong. With this ticket list, the investment group is further embracing the concept that one city can be more worthy of an NBA franchise than another based on bank accounts and careful exploitation of circumstances. This battle has relatively little to do with passion, community, and the various other positive values that get trotted out in discussions of a city's connection to its sports teams. As usual, it's about money, and the ability to apply that advantage by any means available."

Charles Barkley Wins $67,633 For Sacramento’s Mustard Seed School on The Price is Right

8

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – Taking part in Celebrity Charity Week on "The Price Is Right," NBA legend Charles Barkley won $67,633 for the Mustard Seed School in Sacramento. Barkley, who turned 50 on Wednesday, came just short of the individual record set last year by Snoop Dogg, who raised $72,585 for the Snoop Youth Football League. Barkley was one of five celebrity guests this week playing along with contestants as they try and win money, prizes and a spot in the big showcase showdown. Whatever the contestants win, the show will match and donate to the celebrities’ charity of choice, and Barkley chose The Mustard Seed School, a free emergency school for homeless kids in Sacramento operated by Loaves & Fishes. His taped appearance on the show aired Thursday morning on CBS13. Barkley and the school were helped by one of the contestants not going with his advice to take the money in a dice game. He elected to roll again and ended up winning a new car, one of two cars won during Barkley’s show. Barkley also did well himself spinning the big wheel, landing on .80. The show added two zeros to it for $8,000 to go to his total. Barkley then thanked host Drew Carey and said "it’s been a great day for me." And a good one for the school, too. "We’re incredibly grateful to have been chosen and we’re honored," said Angela Hassell, the director of the non-profit school for homeless kids. She says they’ve been seeing more families in need of their services. "We’re designed as an emergency school for families while they are homeless so the kids don’t miss too much school as a result of moving around a lot," she said. The money will be a big help, she said after she and the students watched Barkley’s appearance Thursday. "It will help us keep the school running," she said. "We’ve seen an increase in students in our classrooms." Students tucked their books away for an hour Thursday and watched the basketball star score big money for their little school.

How do we garner national attention to keep the Kings in Sacramento (e.g. for FTM night)?

I don't think boycotting games, merchandise, or concessions is going to influence their decision-making and neither would hearing chanting of "fans thank maloofs" or "fuck the m*loofs." Clearly no...
