Yeah, agreed with Pinkfloyd. The arena deal the Maloofs got from Sacramento was a very reasonable one that fit essentially all of their requirements except one.... wanting out of Sacramento.

That's all it boils down to. The Maloofs wanted out and, when Anaheim wasn't open to them either, they wanted out of the NBA, too. Enter the highest bidder and, "Goodbye Kings, hello Sonics."

Seattle got screwed by a liar of an owner that was never interested in trying to get a new arena deal in Seattle, Sacramento got screwed by a liar of an owner that just wanted out under any circumstances.
