i think that infringes on the Warriors territory. plus theres a pretty long list of cities with NBA caliber arenas that want a team before SJ.
I know Anaheim, Kansas City, St. Louis, Las Vegas, and i believe Tampa have arenas. Seattle deserves a team, but they cant get a stadium built.
the Kings are the local team around here where i live, so itd suck to lose our only pro sports team. im not a Kings fan, so in the end it doesnt bother me that much, but if they have to move id like to see Seattle get their team back, or maybe STL. i would say KC, but the fans out there are such hardcore Jayhawks fans, i cant see them paying much attention to a crappy NBA franchise.
Sac needs the Kings dude. They are the 5th largest employer in Sac and they employ like 1200 people, plus some bars/restaurants are dependant on game nights for extra business. Sac is going to need an entertainment venue anyway so it makes more sense to build an arena while you have a tenant in place.

I have a real hard time feeling sorry for Kings fans, because when the team was good back in the early part of the decade, everyone was into it. Kings crap everywhere, people all acting like huge fans. Then they started to suck, and after a few years now of being bad, its a ghost town here. no Kings crap anywhere. bunch of fairweather deserters.
I live right in the heart of the Kings fanbase, and i rarely see Kings anything anymore. shirts, hats, jerseys, bumper stickers, anything. nobody cares anymore because they lose, so in a way i think this area deserves to lose them. its hard to be into a perennial loser, but this is all we got up here, and very few are staying diehard through the tough times.
again, itd suck for this area to lose its only team, but i just dont see the passion.
