FORECASTING THE KINGS' FATE: ESPN.com's Forecast panel of NBA contributors was asked to respond to questions in regard to the Kings: where should the team play in the future and where will the team play in the future. ESPN.com's Royce Webb noted on these two questions, the 118 contributors who responded "delivered a sort of split decision." A majority "think that Sacramento should keep the Kings," with 58.5% voicing that opinion."At the same time, 60.2% of the panel "forecasts that Seattle will get the Kings -- or as they would be known, the SuperSonics." Of those who "think the Kings should stay in Sacramento, half think they'll move." Of those who "think the Kings should move, almost 75 percent think they will" (ESPN.com, 4/25).
