3. Sacramento will become the top market nationally with no major pro sports. That spot could be filled before the NBA gets back at all.

The shuffle already makes Stern and the league look bush, but repeating mistakes would only compound the joke.
We're talking the Penguins Burkle right? Why not just move the NBA team to Pittsburgh? Fairly new arena, had a team back in the day, larger market than Sacramento pending which DMA you take and if it's Milwaukee you don't even need to realign.
