Re "Kings likely to stay put" (Page A1, April 30): Congratulations on the that the NBA is likely to deny the relocation of the Kings to Seattle. As much as I want a basketball team in Seattle, I'm happy that you get to keep yours.
If anyone can appreciate how you're feeling today, it's the sports fans in Seattle. We've had the moving trucks loaded for Los Angeles (Seahawks) and Tampa Bay (Mariners). We had our own Maloofs mismanage the team and sell us down the river.
Two main differences with your save in 2013 was strong community and political support and NBA Commissioner David Stern.
