This coming from you, oh the irony.

Keeping a basketball team in Sac is as dumb of a business move as the NFL putting a franchise in Jacksonville of all places.

Nope. Typically cities like Sacramento, Portland, SLC, OKCity, support their teams very well, especially when they're the only pro franchise in town. Sac was well know for being a great NBA city, but with all things the team went downhill and then the arena mess. If ownership can work with Mayor Johnson to get the arena done, and if they can get the team competitive again, the Kings will be in great shape.

Staying in Sacramento was a good move. They have a solid fan base and the maloofs shouldn't ruin that. Clippers moving to Anaheim: that is another story but the bottom line in this one is that sterling is too cheap

Size wise, both in population and economic purchasing power, Sacramento is sufficiently sized to support a major league basketball team.

San Antonio, Memphis, Milwaukee and Charlotte are smaller markets, both in population and purchasing power, than Sacramento.
