People Talk: How do you feel about the possible departure of the Sacramento Kings?

Samantha Sweeden, Pollock Pines
“I don’t see the team wanting to stay here. They should be fighting to stay in the city that supported them, even when they played poorly. Where’s the passion? These guys are just in it for the money, and they don’t seem like good people. The coaches can’t coach and the players don’t act ethically and morally sound. Give me the River Cats any day. At least those guys act like they want to be here.

Asked at Cameron Park Fire Station 89

Al Ramirez, Chico “€œI think it would be good to have a pro team in Northern California outside the Bay Area. I personally had a great time at Arco the handful of times I went, and I’€™ll miss it, but what are you going to do?”

George Cazares, Cameron Park “€œIt would be worth talking about if they were a championship team. I don’€™t think the city should be spending any money to keep this team. Spend it on a team and a stadium that might appeal to more people.”

Don Watt, Redding “We loaned this team money. They’€™ve paid almost none of it back over the last 10 years. That’€™s it. We’€™re downsizing government. Police and fire service are looking at major cutbacks. We can’€™t afford to subsidize a professional sports team. Let ‘em leave.”

Matt Phillips, Cameron Park “€œI grew up on the Kings, and I guess I still bleed Kings purple. I’€™ve heard conflicting reports about the move. One says they’€™re selling tickets for next season in Sacramento, the other knows the Maloofs and said they have packed up their offices here and a ready to go.”
