"According to an NBA executive, there is growing concern inside the Kings organization that if their arena issue isn't resolved, they could end up moving to Anaheim. Anaheim has been hoping to get an NBA team for years, has filled its arena for Lakers exhibition games and Clippers regular-season games, and could attract fans from as far south as San Diego. The Lakers and Clippers, however, could challenge for territorial rights fees, and it could be hard for the Kings to find a spot on television in LA, too. The financially strapped Pacers, who reportedly have lost $200 million since 1983, also could be on the move eventually. San Jose, Kansas City, Seattle, and Las Vegas are potential future NBA homes."
the Kansas City Kings? It'll never work.

After what happened after the 2007 All-Star game, and after the Tim Donaghy controversy, one would think that Las Vegas would get an NBA franchise right around the same time that Nome, Alaska becomes the place for a Winter get-away. However, count me as one that is now praying that this comes to pass. The sheer entertainment value of all the off-the-court happenings that would result from having an NBA franchise in Vegas would definitely be non-stop, off the charts. May it be so!
I like your writeups. I think Atlanta will be the sleeper team in the East, Cleveland and Miami will disappoint. In the West, I agree with Golden State being potentially a sleeper, and Dallas/LA Clippers (yep) disappointing.
