Bill Simmons likes us!

Bill Simmons of ESPN gave his take on the Sacramento Kings situation and identified Vancouver and Seattle as the “best available markets”. He was theorizing about the possible strategy for an outside owner to come in and buy the Kings with the ultimate goal of moving them.

Once again, there is no news here. But Simmons is one of the most prominent sportswriters in America who actually cares about the NBA. It was on his podcast earlier this year that David Stern made his famous comments about Vancouver showing interest in a team. And it was on Simmons’ podcast last year where Stern admitted the Vancouver situation was his greatest regret as commissioner.
