Quick thought on Sacramento/Seattle with the two important committee meetings days away: Count me among...
the many who took note in the wiggle room in recent comments on expansion by David Stern. The commish anything but embraced the idea, but it was more of a polite dismissal compared to his backhand at All-Star weekend.
Even the theatrics were good. When someone asked about the chances of expansion as a win-win outcome for the two cities, Stern gave a long pause before answering. Well done. Stern knew the question was coming. Stern knew weeks before the question was coming.
There is the important disclaimer: It's a big jump from the ground softening and expansion becoming reality. Seattle, which preferred that route all along anyway, and Sacramento may love the solution, but this will be a vote from around the United States and Toronto.
