ORLANDO, Fla. -- I am here in the hotel lobby with several other media members from Sacramento staking out the meetings with David Stern, Joe, Gavin, George Maloof, Kevin Johnson and other arena officials. The Commissioner is expected to participate until approximately 4:30. He has another function scheduled before tonight's 7:30 All-Star Game. But we'll see.
Golden State Warriors co-owner Joe Lacob walked over to chat, and when his perspective on his neighbor's arena situation, offered strong support for keeping the Kings in Sacramento. "We want the team in Sac because that market supported that team very in the past," he said, "and should be able to do so again in the future. For us, having them there is a rivalry. We don't see it as competition even though both teams are in Northern California. I really hope it works out."
