Still, many people of Sacramento have become sensitive, angry and annoyed by the situation. At this juncture, we’d like to ask all Kings fans a question that would have seemed unfathomable back in 2002, when Bibby, Webber, Vlade, Peja and Adleman stole our hearts.

Here’s a statement that a Maloof spokesperson sent to the Bee:
"The Kings have been approached by numerous cities interested in buying the team and relocating it. We are not going to discuss which cities have approached the team and are not going to comment on every rumor. I can tell you that the Kings are 100% focused on putting a winning team on the court."
