I feel we should not have an owner from abroad to purchase any sports team.

What's the difference? You think every American NBA franchise owner only makes his money out of America?

foreigners should not be allowed to own NBA teams. The NBA is a treasure to the USA. Keep America domestic not foreign.

You're 2-3 decades too late for that idea Angelinoflake.

Without foreign trade and investment, places like Miami would be a ghost town, and San Francisco would be a shell of its current self.

I'm sure Sacramento will be thrilled to have ANY buyer regardless of national origin come in to their small-market town and save their NBA franchise.

Foreigners they all stink, they want a piece of America but they do not pay taxes to America. Angela et al will agree with me.

I'm from Sacramento, and we love the idea of having an international market. The Kings still have lots of fans in Europe, dating back to when Divac and Stojakovic were running the team. The opportunity to have a link to India, is welcomed with open arms. But then again when the Magoofs are your teams owners, anyone would be welcomed with open arms.
Btw Sac is a small market, but not as small as people think(20th overall). Miami is 16th.
