Last step in the arena plan was held tonight. City council APPROVED the deal 7 votes to 2. The arena will be ready for the 15-16 season. It's a done deal!

Looks like no new arena will ever be guaranteed until they actually break ground.

This is kinda like the NFL situation in LA. All talk, no walk.

What a terrible move by the Maloofs. Have the plan in place then balk when you are asked to pay what you agreed to.

I really hope those clowns sell the team to someone who really wants to keep the team in Sacramento.

They aren't moving. The Maloof's simply want the deal to be more lucrative for them. They recently said they would be open to renovating Arco as a short-term solution until another deal was in place (which they vehemently were against in the past).

The team will stay. They are just using their leverage.

Yeah, because that worked out so well the first time....

Sacramento is a proven basketball market and sells more tickets with a pathetic team than Vancouver would with a solid one.

Over the past three season the Kings have had an average attendance of: 13,254, 12,571, 14,150.

Vancouver Grizzlies had: 17,183, 16,571, 16,109, 16,719, (Steve Francis debacle) 13,899, 13,737.

Granted Sacramento had seven straight sellout seasons before the bottom fell out, your last two seasons were worse than Vancouver's worst two seasons, and if it wasn't for the Steve Francis debacle, Vancouver's attendance was consistently very good.

The Kings have sold out every game in 17 of their 26 seasons. There is no comparison between the two cities in terms of basketball fan base.

Also, the Kings averaged more per game this year than the Indiana Pacers. That should tell you something about the city.

Also also, I don't know where you got your numbers, but the attendance has gone up the last 3 years from 13,254 in '10, 13,890 in '11, and 14,508 this year.

Vancouver had decent attendance in their early years like all teams do. Once the honeymoon phase wore off, the city didn't really care. The Kings had horrible teams in the '80's and 90's and sold out every game. Their lack of ticket sales was heavily effected by the economy, not from lack of basketball interest.
