Sacramento had a million chances to get exported for a mew arena from the Maloofs, but didn't come through. So now their team is gone. This shouldn't be a surprise to anyone.
Now the Portland-Seattle rivalry becomes juicier, with Paul Allen owning Portland and Steve Ballmer owning Seattle. Allen claims that Ballmer and Bill Gates worked to bounce him from Microsoft when Allen was battling cancer.
I'm thrilled for Seattle. The double whammy of losing your team and losing a future HOFer and possibly all timer in Kevin Durant was most cruel.
