Sacramento Mayor Believes Kings Owners Have Their Sights Set On Anaheim
Published March 4, 2011
POINT/COUNTERPOINT: ESPN L.A.'s Arash Markazi wrote of the Kings' potential move, "Anaheim would no doubt embrace their new NBA team and its owners, the Maloofs, who would serve as the anti-Donald Sterling when it comes to interacting with fans and players and making the team an integral part of the community." However, ESPN L.A.'s Ramona Shelburne wrote, "The issue isn't whether Southern California can support three NBA franchises. It can. But the timing for this move couldn't be worse. Why in the world would you want to move a team that hasn't been relevant in almost a decade? To a town with two franchises on the rise? Heading into what will likely be a lockout season? In a down economy?" (ESPNLA.com, 3/3).
