Eye on Basketball Podcast: MLK Day of hoops

By Zach Harper | NBA writer

On this day of history and remembrance, Matt Moore and I talk about the sale of the Sacramento Kings to the Seattle-based ownership and how bad the situation seems for the league outside of Seattle. After doing everything the city of Sacramento was asked to do, they still will probably end up losing their team. It's clearly not fair to them, but is it fair to blame the city of Seattle for this? Should all of our anger be directed at the Maloofs or does it need to go other places too?

We also discuss the firing of Alvin Gentry in Phoenix and wonder where the Suns go from here. Was Gentry given a decent team to coach? Is there any hope for the future currently on this roster? Is anybody worth keeping? Will Lindsey Hunter be a decent coach or given a decent chance to actually succeed with the team long term?

All of that plus we talk about the Lakers' embarrassment, the Celtics' makeup and preview today's day of hoops.
