The mood around the Maloofs is demonstrably upbeat, determined, collaborative, stoked in part by a warming relationship with the mayor, but also by the community’s renewed passion for the Kings.
According to Joe Maloof, there have been brisk season ticket sales and an encouraging response from business leaders; only one suite remains available for 2011-12.
“Who knows what can happen with the lottery?” Gavin Maloof asked. “We have cap space, three picks, two second-rounders. Everybody is going to be coming to us because they know we’re going to make moves.”
It’s not even lotto time and the Kings only have one suite left (they’ve sold 28) to sell for the 11-12 season. Absolutely fantastic. Speaking of the lotto, it will be held this Tuesday evening prior to tip-off between the Dallas Mavericks and Oklahoma City Thunder/Memphis Grizzlies with Kevin Johnson representing the black and purple.
Get your mojo and shit out – it’s about time that we finally move up in the lotto.
