Huge NBA meeting over future of Kings

Huge NBA meeting over fate of Kings todayThe NBA board of governors began gathering in Dallas today in an effort to resolve the five-month-long struggle over the future of the Sacramento Kings. The board's tasks: Decide whether the team should move to Seattle or stay in Sacramento, and then figure out who should own the troubled franchise.

Owners and league executives trickled in for the climactic meeting, which was expected to begin at around 11 a.m. Sacramento time.

Kings co-owner George Maloof was prowling the Hilton lobby this morning and greeted Commissioner David Stern and his wife Diane at the hotel coffee shop. After breakfast, Stern waved hello to four purple-and-black-clad Kings fans who had arrived minutes earlier from Sacramento, but declined comment to reporters.

Maloof - the man who in some respects is at the center of it all - himself was of two minds about the league's decision.

Seen in the Hilton lobby late Tuesday and early today, he said, "I don't have a good feel for it."

A few minutes later, he expressed confidence that the league would OK the family's proposed sale of the team to Seattle's Chris Hansen and his business partner Steve Ballmer.
