Don't take Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson too literally when he says he wants to make the Kings "the NBA equivalent
of what the Green Bay Packers have been in the NFL." At this point, he is in full scramble mode to line up a conventional ownership plan in hopes of a last-minute reprieve from the Board of Governors. There is no way to organize any Packer-like plan to have fans take ownership. Johnson knows this. His reference Sunday night can only be read as what a sports franchise means to the fabric of their respective small markets, not a call to arms to duplicate the unique Green Bay structure.
