The Maloof’s finally sold off the Sacramento Kings on Friday, and made a decent return on investment. They chose to take about .000000000000000001 of their ‘winnings’ and take out a full page in the Sacramento Dee thanking fans for their support throughout the years.
Thank you Sacramento for 15 wonderful years!
The amazing memories created during these past seasons were because of you, the fans, and our dedicated employees.
We truly cherish our time as stewards of the Kings franchise.
The people of Sacramento warmly brought the Kings into their hearts and for that we will always be grateful.
