Miss Cleo looks 12 hours into the future


I would love your thoughts on whether or not behind-the-scenes doings are in play.  I think everyone just wants this thing to go away.


The BOG advises the Maloofs to go back to Sacramento and reconsider without forcing any of the owners to go on the record as for or against the relocation. None of them are really excited about the team leaving Sacramento, having the NBA in Anaheim, or telling one of the club that they can’t do whatever they want, and they sure as hell don’t want to create a precedent, no matter how a vote turns out.

They should privately tell the Maloofs to withdraw the application to relocate and either:

Go back to Sacramento and deal in good faith with the city
Accept the team swap deal with New Orleans and sell to Burkle
Just sell to Burkle, take the money, and fuck off

The BOG is now in a position where a suitor with deep pockets swears he can make money in a current NBA market, and the only thing standing in the way, is a couple of bonus babies who can’t make money in that market, and would cost the league money in the market they wish to move into.

Congrats Maloofs, you’ve made your fraternity brothers nervous and pissed off at you. Why don’t you just go ahead and do the swap? No one here has any love for you, and no one in SoCal cares who you are. Also, you’re almost certain to lose the team if you take it in as the third option down there.

You can get out with a pile of cash, or you can just get out. But either way, you’re going to be ushered out of the NBA unless you take the New Orleans deal.
