Earlier this week, rumors of the Sacramento Kings impending move to Seattle began to dominate the NBA headlines. In Seattle, excitement about the return of the NBA has taken over the city, while Sacramento natives brace themselves for the pain of losing a sport franchise. Few details are certain at the moment and the latest news suggest a snag in the negotiations. What is certain, however, is that Seattle fans should temper their excitement because the same struggles the Kings have had lately will almost certainly continue in the first year in the Emerald City. Tracking team relocations over the past 20 years in the four major sports has shown that while the move can have positive economic effects, little changes on the playing surface.
