NBA KINGS moving to VIRGINIA BEACH? REPORTS say YES!

I saw this while I crushing the opposition at Buzztime(tm) trivia tonight:  NBA team moving to Virginia Beach.

WHAT?  Are you KIDDING?  THE NBA to the BEACH?  What drugs are they smoking?  But it may happen:

The owners of the Sacramento Kings, an NBA franchise, and officials from Philadelphia-based Comcast-Spectacor are expected to be in Virginia Beach Tuesday to propose moving the team to the resort city and for Comcast to help build and lease a new pro sports arena.

That is tentative but this report says more definitely yes:

The Kings would move into a new arena to be built near that’s city’s Convention Center – an arena that would be operated by Comcast-owned Global Spectrum; Comcast would get its name on the arena and rights to broadcast games, according to the report.

I would think this is another business deal partially midwifed by Governor McDonnell but I have no personal knowledge of this.

Gov. Bob McDonnell taped a segment in support of Virginia Beach’s effort to lure a pro team to the city, spokesman Tucker Martin said.

“He is aware of the effort to bring a professional sports franchise to Virginia Beach and he is very supportive. He has helped along the way to encourage a team to come to the area, including having conversations with a number of individuals and groups involved in this project,” Martin said.

The Hampton Roads area seems too small to support a pro team but Slate seems to say otherwise:

Then I looked it up. The Virginia Beach-Norfolk-Newport News metropolitan statistical area isn’t that small. It’s bigger than Oklahoma City, Salt Lake City, Milwaukee, New Orleans, or Memphis—all of which have NBA teams—and it’s just very slightly smaller than Indianapolis. And unlike the Bucks, Hornets, or Pacers, a Virginia Beach Kings squad wouldn’t need to compete with any other pro sports teams.

Maybe the novelty of the NBA in the Commonwealth might draw people from as far as Williamsburg and even Richmond.  (Maybe the Kings could play a few games in the River City!  I would try to attend a game or two.)

I only hope that this is not a giveaway of tax money for a promise of future prosperity.  We’ll see.  But as good Virginians we’ll root, root, root for the home team whatever it is called.  The mascot needs a change.  We gave up kings in 1776!  Maybe the Hampton Roads Admirals?  Or Commodores?  (Vanderbilt might not like it, though.)  Or Ironclads?

We were curious about using this organization, Move4Less 1015 Shary Cir #7 Concord, CA 94518 – 925-808-3139. Is there some kind of movers scam or review website currently available for verifying them?

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
