08:01 AM ET 02.28 | The clock is ticking, again. With the seconds ticking toward NBA approval of a Kings sale in April, at least one more suitor for the Kings is trying to make his move. Sacramento Kings minority owner John Kehriotis has contacted team majority owners, the Maloof family, in recent days about submitting what's being described as a "back-up" offer to them to buy the team, if the Maloofs' current sales deal with a Seattle group falls through, several sources said. Kehriotis told the Bee this week it's too early to discuss his plans. A spokesman for the Maloofs also declined comment. But a person familiar with the situation said the Maloofs would accept "back-up offers" to the Hansen agreement.

I read somewhere that it's going to be a three city deal. Kings go to Boston, Celtics to Seattle and Sacramento gets the Grey's Anatomy filming rights.

Then, Los Angeles has 16 championship banners and Boston has none...

I vote yes!

The Name May Change But The Smell Will Be The Same, Bro.

Kings have become the Phoenix Coyotes of the NBA. Only difference is that the league isn't subsidizing them.

By your logic that would be 11 not 16. 5 of those belong to Minneapolis.

People of Minneapolis didn't win those titles. The Lakers did.

You Boston fans are funny with your fear that the Lakers will pass you in titles. Not that they need to since they are the greatest franchise in NBA history and always will be...

That's ok for you to say since you clearly are an unbiased, rational poster just stating the facts, ma'am.

You just validated my statement and pointed out your own error. Indeed the Lakers did win those titles, had you said the "Lakers" have 16 championships I would have said nothing. But you stupidly said "Los Angeles" has 16 championships. So stop confusing yourself.
