Is Burkle's ploy a lure to the potential team investors to flash him some cash in order to get the arena built, Kings or no?

Doesn't mean it won't get an arena deal done. It's just one more reason the Kings are very likely to end up out the door while all the pieces are being retrieved. OTOH, it's similar greed that makes me wonder if Seattle sells out to get the Sonics while this discussion is all for naught regarding hockey.

One more thought: should Sacramento make the play to get the new arena, is there any discussion of trying to raise the profile of Sac State basketball? Of giving them a rent break? It's a risk, it may not work (Portland State drew flies when they reinstated men's basketball and played in the then-new Rose Garden), but it might be smart to throw that into the mix.
