The Inside The NBA crew tackled the Sacramento Kings' situation on Thursday, and Charles Barkley made the most powerful comments. You can see the video yourself. Barkley said that while he likes the Maloofs, they have "screwed this up royally." He said that David Stern should force the Maloofs to sell the team so that this issue stops repeating itself.

He and former Kings Kenny Smith also credited to Sacramento fans for their support of the team. Smith said that if the team even sniffed the playoffs, the fans would be out in full support.

While you're at NBA.com, Scott Howard-Cooper has a nice piece on the impact of the rumors on the team itself.
