That was 26 years ago.

Many cities have re-gained teams after losing them in all sports. There were reasons the Browns left Cleveland, the Colts left Baltimore, the Senators left Washington DC, the North Stars left Minneapolis, the Lakers left Minneapolis, etc. The fact that the Kings were once in KCMO and left has nothing to do with the current Kings and any other plans for KCMO's future.

Besides, I was only responding to the guy who suggested the Kings could move to KCMO. It is widely reported that the Kings are not planning to go to KCMO, but, we will see what happens.

I just brought up Kansas City because of its new arena, its substantial size, and how there aren't very many NBA teams in its region.

Orange County has size and wealth with more than 3 million residents, but how many are NBA fans? I understand how the team can attract some season ticketholders from other areas like North SD and Riverside counties, but the traffic will be a deterrent for some.

Three NBA teams in one (more or less) city seems like a bit much.

Does this mean the Clips will eventually be the odd man out?

LA's JV team might become the freshman team. It might sound harsh, but it has an esteemed history of being horrible.

Orange County would accept the Kings pretty well. I just drove from Long Beach (apart of LA county by complete utter BS) to Staples Wednesday. It took about an hour to get to the season finale to the Clippers. Crowd was about 70% full.

The Ducks and Kings do well...don't see why the NBA Kings couldn't do well. About the Clippers, don't feel about for them. The owners haven't given anyone to care about them in years. They have Blake but they'll probably screw it up like they always do.

That was a great last game and poetic to see Kobe rip their hearts out again

Sac has GREAT GREAT GREAT fans. I would hate to see the team go. Some cities like Miami, Atlanta etc have teams but the fans really stink.

Meh,

high income fanbase, big population and big corporate sponsorship.

Everyone knows the score.

Why didn't they just move the Clippers to Orange County? I've never understood what the point is of having a constantly mediocre team sharing the Staples Center with the Lakers. Couldn't they just get a bigger crowd as it is if they played in Anaheim?

As for the Kings---it's a shame that Sac is going to lose their team just like Seattle lost the Sonics...

Money talks....

Because the L.A. metro area has around what, 18,000,000 (?) they figure having 3 teams in an area that size is better than one in a small market. I've talked to a few people from L.A.

They either like or LOVE the idea of a team in Orange County.
