08:07 AM ET 12.05 | Kevin Johnson is frustrated -- again. As upbeat Virginia Beach officials on Tuesday pushed forward with their effort to land an unnamed professional sports team -- widely believed to be the Kings -- Sacramento's mayor lamented that he once again has that helpless feeling of watching "a slow death." [Johnson], a former NBA star credited with helping keep the team in town after Kings tried to bolt to Anaheim in 2011, saw his plan for a downtown Sacramento arena deal rejected by the team six months ago. Negotiations have not resumed. ... "I don't like not being able to fight and not being able to determine the outcome," he said. "The Kings and the owners have to want to be here."
