In the end, the NBA couldn't block the move, but they certainly could make it financially impossible. The Lakers would lose millions in TV revenue if a 3rd team is added to the market per the contract. The Clippers too would receive compensation for another team moving into their territory.

Anaheim was always a pipe dream forced to make Sacramento offer up a better arena plan.
