Somebody quickly get George Maloof a
shovel backhoe because he certainly likes to dig holes – deep, deep, holes.
The evil brother of the Maloof family, who has consistently opted to go against his more likeable brothers in Joe and Gavin may have bit off more than he can chew this afternoon with his request that Mayor Kevin Johnson, who’s been nothing short of amazing through this entire process, be removed from any future arena talks:
“I don’t think I’d want to negotiate with the mayor,” Maloof told USA TODAY Sports on Saturday. “Maybe there’s someone else that I’d feel more comfortable with.
“We’re disappointed in comments made by the mayor that we feel were shots to us that were unfair and not truthful.”
Mayor Kevin Johnson has yet to be reached for comment Saturday. Phone and email messages were left with his spokesman, Joaquin McPeek.
George, we all want things. Matter of fact, we as fans, want a basketball team. We also wouldn’t mind if you fell off the face of the earth.
So, on behalf of King fans across the country – I’ll say what they so eloquently would like to.
Up your ass.
