Friedman is taking Burkle's spot and so far there has been no word of this changing anything about the prior approved arena deal. To me, the pc reason for Burkle stepping down is the Relativity Sports company, but the real reason is his relationship with the Maloof's. Word is they will absolutely not negotiate with a group that has Burkle involved.
As for KJ, the guy likes the spotlight and I can see how he can annoy the Seattle fanbase, but the guy has put the work in and has never given up on the Kings. He spins and can be annoying, but without him, the Kings would already be gone by now.
