This weekend is the big NBA All-Star weekend and one of the storylines in the NBA is the Sacramento Kings possibly moving to Seattle.
So Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle sat down with David Stern and asked him about the NBA possibly adding expansion teams so Seattle and Sacramento could both have teams and Stern throws out a Pittsburgh being on his short list of cities.
“I haven’t heard anything about expansion from our owners. They have discussed contraction in conjunction with the last Collective Bargaining Agreement. I don’t think (expansion) is an option. Right now, we have no approved plan for an arena in Seattle. We have a very good potential ownership group and set of plans, but there’s a lot of work to be done. I keep a little green book with a list of all the cities interested in NBA teams and could respond pretty quickly. There’s all kinds of stuff going on in Pittsburgh, Columbus, Louisville, Virginia Beach, Las Vegas, Vancouver, Mexico City, Kansas City.”
Pretty sure we are ready for a team...Well at least Bob is
