Eye on Basketball Podcast: Talking Kings-Sonics

With news of the potential purchase of the Sacramento Kings from the Maloof family by a Seattle group, Royce Young hops onto the podcast to discuss the similarities and differences between the relocation situations Seattle has dealt with in the last few years. The way the city lost the Sonics (now the Thunder) and how it is potentially acquiring the Kings is pretty interesting.

Royce talks about his experience with the city of Seattle after the initial move and how it's lingered. We also talk about how Seattle has essentially assumed the city of Oklahoma City's position in the entire process of taking a team from one city and making it your own. But there are differences in how the two ownership groups have acted and we hash those out as well.

We also get into Kevin Durant's demeanor, J.J. Barea's flopping and preview Wolves-Thunder for tonight.
