Can James buy the Kings??? I thought that is/was "conflicts of interest"? If I'm correct, the NBA wouldn't let Magic buy part ot the Lakers, while he was still playing!!!

I might have to remove 1 team from that list. Even though it's the 6th largest metropolitan area in North America (Includes Mexico City).
