Worries, Pride & Logic

I know that many around here are waiting on baited breath for the voting results slated to come May 13. Some have expressed concern over Chris Hansen's continued pursuit of our Kings. I don't count myself as one of them. Sure, Mr. Hansen will probably pull out all the stops in his quest to acquire an NBA franchise, afterall, did Sacramento give up when things looked most dire in our plight to retain our beloved team? No. Hence, I fully expect Hansen to explore every avenue at his disposal.

But will he succeed? I believe the answer to this question is no, and here's why:

Do the remaining owners really want to set a precedent that allows a non-owner to undermine a recommendation made by a committee of current owners? No.

You see, I view NBA ownership as a rich person's club. A club of entitled men and women with a lot of money and a reasonable amount of power. Men and women who are not used to being bullied or intimidated. A group of people who probably don't appreciate a potential candidate complicating their affairs, or questioning their decisions. It is this level of pride that I base my current level of comfort.

As defined, pride is "a high or inordinate opinion of one's own dignity, importance, merit, or superiority, whether as cherished in the mind or as displayed in bearing, conduct, etc." (Dictionary.com) That, combined with a club mentality wherein one is inclined to support their brethren's decisions, leads me to believe that owners will support each other and fall in line with a recommended decision, especially when those committee brethren have had a much more comprehensive understanding of how both ownership groups/arena deals were vetted.

Now this shouldn't mean we needn't worry about anything Maloof-related, but as it pertains to Mr. Hansen's chances to convince other owners to vote against the committee, I think we're probably safe there. Be that as it may, let's not get complacent in the comfort of our recent victory. We're so close...fight on brothers and sisters!!!
