ESPN Discusses Seattle & Sacramento Parallels For Kings - Claims Seattle One Sports Town

The knowledge level on the current Sacramento Kings relocation and sale saga outside of Sacramento and hardcore NBA fans is nothing short of suspect, so much so that local radio personality Carmichael Dave and a band of wonderful King fans are going on a national tour to promote education on the situation.

Some outside of the Kingdom may look at that as a bit petty and not needed, but sadly, much of the nation – again – outside of the hardcore NBA folks – are completely void of knowledge on the situation and even worse, are continually fed incorrect statements by national media, like a recent piece featured on ESPN.

Discussing the Seattle ticket waitlist program, the similarities and parallels between Sacramento and Seattle were brought to light, much how like Sacramento, Seattle is a one sports town when it comes to professional sport franchises.

Wait – what?

Towards the end of the clip, the host along with former Seattle Supersonic and NBA player Tim Legler bring up that the Kings are the only ticket in town then oddly make the same statement for Seattle, you know, Seattle who has the Mariners, Seahawks, Storm and Sounders. Even worse is that Legler simply agrees with the host rather than correcting him.

Yes – the knowledge on the current situation is just dripping.

Dripping in stupidity.

Just another countless baseless comment from the mainstream media. Sad.

Update: Tim Legler apologized, well, sort of, for the above piece:
