And the fans fill the building. And the enthusiasm rekindles enthusiasm and momentum toward a new arena. So, OK, maybe a modern sports/entertainment complex that enables owners to remain competitive and attract events and concerts will remain only a dream. But I don't believe that. Taylor is too smart, Johnson is too committed, local leaders too eager to buy in. That's what the Maloofs have to do. Buy in, emotionally. At a time when jobs are scarce, finances are spent, spirits are down, and sports and entertainment are the undeniable, ultimate escape, the Maloofs can raise their voices and lift a region. They can be beloved again, can be successful in Sacramento again. Stick with us, and then it's on us. Any new arena will require a collaborative undertaking, requiring the people to contribute by supporting the team, embracing the Maloofs and understanding modern economic realities. But that's for another day. If there is another day.

Ailene Voisin summing up the situation well. However you feel about her basketball points, she hit this one out of the park.
