I know I don't have a link. For those of you who are still up at this hour and were watching postgame coverage on TNT they were talking about Sacramento's last game tomorrow night. Long story short, Webber was very passionate about wanting the Kings to stay in Sacramento and Chuck agreed and said he'd give money to but the Kings. Webber also added that he's trying everything possible to keep the Kings in Sacramento.

Is this something legit? Who knows. Definetly thought it was thread worthy because obviously Webber and other people are looking for ways to buy the team and/or keep the Kings in Sacramento.

It's blowing up on twitter by the way for those of you who have twitter

Thoughts?

Maloofs have said they won't sell. They are too stubborn to even though they are financially ****ed. Their last ditch effort is to move the team where they think they can make more money.

I really love Chris. He really embraced the fans and can't imagine this team not being in Sac. I really pray he comes through.

Pretty much, bennett had a ton of ms money thrown at them to buy it well beyond value.

I actually didnt realize he was so involved I almost thought for a second when they asked him on the air what he was doing and he said he couldn't talk about it maybe he was bluffing :shrug: but i was wrong clearly, much respect c-webb
