The Sacramento Kings

Tonight the local breaking news was the trade by the Sacramento Kings of Chris Webber and Michael Bradley and one other for Brian Skinner, Kenny Thomas and Corliss Williamson. What a crock! The next move the Kings should make is out of Sacramento - they are so amateur - they have traded away several NBA title shots with their inept trades. They have tried to force the city into buying them a new arena for all those great seasonal minimum wage jobs. The Kings have come up short consistently - since they came to the city they have used a ton of excuses to excuse lousy trades and mediocre coaching. Why not make them move with Webber?

How the first city got bamboozled in doing a deal where public funds were offered to build a stadium is beyond me. Hopefully, most cities have begun to understand the folly of funding these teams and rich owners. But in the case of Sacramento - this trade is another example of inflated egos and nonsense. Their owners and their pimps suggested tonight that if we don't buy them a new house we might lose them?

And what exactly would we lose if they moved?
