LAS VEGAS - Now that things have cooled down in Sacramento ....
Longtime NBA president Joel Litvin, who for years has been intimately involved in the Kings arena/relocation issues, stayed in town after the league's executive board meeting Thursday to watch some of the Summer League games. While this meant Litvin didn't get to accompany David Stern and Adam Silver on their charter flight back to New York late Thursday night, he's not complaining.
"I love this," said Litvin, who plays weekly in a competitive basketball league in Westchester County, N.Y. "I've been in the gym all day."
While remaining indoors makes complete sense given the extreme heat wave battering much of the country, he also revealed a more aggressive escape plan: He is taking his family to Iceland next month. Why Iceland? Need we ask?
"Because it's Iceland," he replied, grinning.
