Dear Joe, Gavin, and George,
My parents have had season tickets since the Kings came to Sacramento and I have had them on and off since the first season, as finances have allowed me to purchase them. I would just like to take a moment to thank you for the effort that you have put forth towards this city. I thank you for the multiple championships that you were able to bring here. The fact that you were always willing to bring in that one last piece that meant the difference between winning and losing; bringing back Jim Jackson when Webber was hurt comes to mind. Thank you.
I want to thank you for finally showing Rick Adelman the door. I too was tired of the team’s continued playoff runs and the inadequacies that were apparent year after year. If only he were able to coach defense, which has been our hallmark since you let him go. Thank you.
I want to thank you for your honesty in dealing with us the fans. Your devotion to any type of new arena here in Sacramento can never go unnoticed. Having you tell us honestly that the team was for sale and that even a financially deprived group of investors from the state of California would have the opportunity to bid on the team, was something no other owner would have done. Lastly, who here can ever forget how you stood-up with us, the fans, during that last game with the Lakers in 2011, when the city of Anaheim tried to rip this team from us. Thank you.
I know that your Dad is in heaven looking down lovingly upon you, knowing that his reputation in the NBA, and business empire has been in your capable and intelligent hands. It is a blessing to me, and I am sure the rest of the Sacramento fans that you have in no way besmirched your father’s legacy. Thank you.
Finally, I hope that when your days here upon the Earth are over, that Saint Peter welcomes you with open arms and that you spend eternity resting comfortably in Heaven’s bliss. Thank you.
