Anyone more grounded in the particulars care to rip this apart?
From what I've gleaned on StR, the latter half of this paragraph is BS (in addition to the former half suggesting that KJ led a one-man campaign):
If we look back at this debate we see another motivation for the supporters of this arena. A year ago, it looked like the Kings were going to depart Sacramento for the city of Anaheim. In response, Kevin Johnson – the Mayor of Sacramento (and former NBA All-Star) – staged an immense effort to keep the Kings in Sacramento. That effort culminated in the city of Sacramento giving $255 million to a new arena and it is important to emphasize, that money is not just coming from basketball fans. These are funds the city could have used for other projects. Therefore, this money is coming from people who may not even like the product sold by the Kings and the NBA.
