How do you finish last, by a landslide, in fan voting for owner honesty? For the Kings' brother bosses, Gavin and Joe Maloof, it takes six easy steps: 1)Play footsie with Anaheim, where city officials and Ducks owner Henry Samueli offered to help you relocate. 2)Withdraw your plans, in part because local Sacramento businesses pledge to keep you in town. 3) Strike a deal with Mayor Kevin Johnson to build a $391 million arena in the Sactown rail yards, with the city paying up to 255 million, and the NBA footing a 67 million loan to help cover the rest. 4) Cry in public when announcing the deal. 5)Triumphantly hold the mayor's hands aloft at the first Kings home game after the deal. 6)Back out 6 weeks later. I was reading through the mag, trying to find something on the negative about the Magoofs and was pleasantly surprised to find this article on page 56. There is more but its good to see that a national sports magazine has the correct gist of things

ESPN the Magazine, page 56, best and worst owners in all of sports, Maloofs ranked 122/122.
