The city of Oakland is doing everything in their power to keep the Warriors in Oakland....Oracle is a considerably a "world class" arena (far better than that mattress place)....The Maloofs want relocation (Apparently they aren't afraid of shared markets ie, the move to Anaheim).....Makes me think.
What if the Kings were to move to Oracle, spend some change remodeling, and split costs with the Warriors while they prepare for their move.
If the Kings are to move anywhere I'd prefer them to stay as close as possible. The existing rivalry will be enhanced, and touring teams will bring more excitement to the whole bay area (and greater bay area). The Kings will be able maintain a good portion of their existing fan base, something David Stern has always heavily considered in relocation decisions.
THE CALIFORNIA KINGS....I can see it now
