USA TODAY Sports

At the State Of Downtown Breakfast, Kevin Johnson addressed the media and the current state of Sacramento's efforts to keep the Kings. The biggest news was the confirmation that Sacramento will be allowed present to the NBA's Board of Governors.

Kevin Johnson addressed the media Tuesday morning as part of the State of Downtown Breakfast. He addressed the city's efforts to keep the Kings, and revealed the huge news that David Stern will allow the Mayor to address the NBA Board of Governors and plead Sacramento's case.

That last quote is the money quote. While David Stern had previously stated that Sacramento deserved an opportunity, the league was under no obligation to allow Mayor Johnson to present.
