Parting is such sweet sorrow, even in cow towns

…this is how an article about the pending Kings move begins at latimes.com. Sigh.

This article does bring up some interesting points, however.

Time Warner’s new $3-billion Lakers TV deal reportedly has a third-team clause, reducing it by $250 million.

Twist!

Does someone think Buss will watch $250 million fly away because someone set up a lemonade stand in Orange County, then say, “I’d be glad to kick in an extra $5 million to $10 million annually?” When the looming lockout complicated New Orleans’ sale, Commissioner David Stern swooped down, bought the Hornets and put talks on hold.

And Stern can’t sell the Hornets to save his life.

Here’s another interesting article from the Orange County Register…

It would behoove the NBA to get this item off its agenda, because the owners are expected to lock out the players when the current collective-bargaining agreement expires at the end of June. That’s probably why the relocation committee already has been named.

Good luck with all that.
