This isn't about what you think will happen and not even what you want to happen. Obviously there are other alternatives but I was curious if these were your only two choices for how things play out at the BoG the next two days, which of the two would you pick?
Option A: The Maloofs cannot convince a majority of owners to let them file for relocation and the NBA and the Maloofs figure a way to resolve the pre-development issues; however, that's it, the status quo is kept and the ESC project moves along. The Maloofs keep ownership, the ESC project moves along with the pre-development costs issues dealt with but that's it. The only assurances we get from the Maloofs are a few interviews that they are "100% behind the project" but no special contract being signed guaranting the rest of the money, merely the league thinks the plan is fair and it will move along so long as everyone gets along. Please note, under this option we are assuming there are no assurances either way as to whether the Maloofs will hold up this project further down the road.
Option B: Again, the Maloofs cannot convince a majority of owners to let them file for relocation but the league has also called into question the Maloofs and their fiability as NBA franchise owners and the Maloofs begin to threaten an anti-trust suit against the league, arguing that the league's rules prohibiting relocation are an unlawful restrain on trade under Article 1 of the Sherman Act and also make a few other claims such as the Commissioner's Office has breached it's fiduciary duty with the Maloofs in its conduct and communications with the City and AEG. In the process, the current ESC plan is completely off schedule and all parties back out until the issue between the NBA and the Maloofs are resolved. Please note, under this option we are assuming there is no smoking gun either way, it's a toss up for all we know.
So, as a Kings fan, which option do you pick if you are stuck having to pick only between these two options?
If you can only choose between Option A and Option B as described above, which one would you pick?
