Default Re: New arena legal battle continues

The public relations campaign to keep the Kings in town continued today with a blast from the franchise's past.

Former Kings star Mitch Richmond greeted a few dozen fans at midtown's Firestone Public House, signing posters and hats. Richmond has pledged $1 million to be part of a local ownership contingent seeking to block the Kings' move to Seattle.

"It would be a sad day if the Kings leave this community," Richmond said. "I know Seattle is a good place, I think Seattle's team (the Sonics) should have never left. But we want our team here."
