Frankly, what I think Hansen is doing here is gauging the actual interest for a team. This will be interesting to see how this goes. If the NBA/Stern get p'd, too bad. They have a low offer from Sacramento and probably not a very good chance of it being worth anything looking at unless Kehriotis and Mastrov join forces as opposed to going their own separate ways with bids. So the league, even if they wanted to be upset, probably won't be able to do anything about it in the end because Sacramento at the moment it seems is not giving them a good enough reason to stay.
You really think the NBA hasn't got the upper end and that stern is a weakling? That they'll do everything Hansen tells them simply because he's rich? Seriously?
You can have all the money in the world, if the other owners and/or the commissioner dont want you in their private little club, it's game over for you! (see Balsilie)
