|Unless you follow the NBA closely, you might not know Sacto is losing the Kings.|
Great article HERE by Bill Simmons regarding the plight of the Maloof brothers and their attempts to sell/move the Sacramento Kings.
I honestly had little idea that the Maloofs were in this much trouble financially. The last time I really paid attention to them, they were opening The Palms in Vegas and seemed to be living like real-life Kings. They seemed to be on the same level of Mark Cuban in terms of vocal ownership that was well-liked by its fans.
Simmons goes into great detail regarding the downturn of the Maloof empire, mixed in with some bad luck that has negatively impacted the small-market Kings franchise. It's definitely worth your time to click the link.
