The Maloofs are the majority owners of the Sacramento Kings, so you would figure they would be supporting their team. Instead, they have tried to move the team out of Sacramento to make up for their financial empire crumbling in recent years, and now they’re allowing rival fans to sit in their courtside seats for a home game. Aaron Bruski of NBC Sports/Rotoworld pointed out that there were Lakers fans sitting in the Maloofs’ courtside seats for the team’s game Saturday night at Sleep Train Arena. Bruski also noted that the Maloofs pulled the same stunt two years ago on a “Fan Appreciation Night.” I don’t care who the fans are or how close they are to the Maloofs, that is just a horrible look for a team’s owners. The message to the team’s fans is that they are more concerned with selling tickets and making money than supporting their team, which is actually quite consistent with their actions in recent years.
