Officials Insist Sacramento is Better Market
Sacramento officials today stepped up their public relations campaign to keep the Kings from leaving, saying the city is a better NBA market than Seattle.
Mayor Kevin Johnson’s Think Big Sacramento task force unveiled a barrage of statistics to bolster its argument that the city has been more supportive of the NBA than Seattle fans when the SuperSonics were in the league.
The report comes four days after investors Mark Mastrov and Ron Burkle gave the NBA their bid to buy the Kings and keep the team in Sacramento.
The NBA Board of Governors will decide in mid-April whether to accept the Seattle deal. The Kings would move following this season.
