“It’s really sad to see our hocky team leave … oh, it’s a basketball team? Well, I’m obviously not a huge fan. What will the rest of the country know Sacramento for now? I can see why there’s so much emotion around their departure. It’s sort of like the death of a president.”

Dan Russell, Folsom
"'Of course it's sad to see Sacramento lose a pro team, but I think we went overboard to try to keep them. A pro team shouldn't rely on city funding. The Maloofs can afford this."
Ed Spellacy, El Dorado Hills
"The entire region needed to do more. The Kings weren't a strictly Sacramento team. The fans came from all over the region. It's unfortunate that there was no effort to get the outlying communities involved in keeping the team here. They had an incredible brand; it dropped off the last few years, but in their day those guys tore it up."

Tom Heredia, El Dorado Hills "As a longtime Warrior fan, I'm OK with it. It appears that Sacramento did what it could. If they could have gotten a downtown arena that would have turned it."
Wally Jukes, Latrobe "I watched them play their hearts out for three quarters and then lose in the fourth for years. This really isn't much different."
