The Law 360 Article - full of good vibes for Sonics fans




I found the full text of it, didn't have to sign up for a free trial. I don't want to re-post the entire copywritten text here without their permission, but if you were to google the following phrase, the full article should be your third result (it was for me as of about ten seconds ago, anyway). It's nice to see a non-sports-focused publication dig into this situation specifically for the interesting legal issues it presents..

MODS please delete the post if copying even these two little tidbits is over the line.

"The Maloofs are represented by Loeb & Loeb LLP.

The Seattle investors are represented by Covington & Burling LLP in deal negotiations, and by Jeffer Mangels Butler & Mitchell LLP on other matters including the MOU with Seattle.

Counsel information for the Sacramento investors was not available."

Let's just put it this way, so as to give you the gist of the article, which was written by Jake Simpson after interviewing lots of legal and sport business analysts and professionals...in the words of pretty much every lawyer in the modern history of America:

"Allegiance is overridden by economic benefits," BakerHostetler partner Jay P. Krupin said.

Everyone Simpson interviewed from the legal community for this article seems to think there's really no shot the league chooses to embrace a weaker economic position in Sacramento out of some bastardized sense of loyalty or allegiance. Sac fans can scream till they're blue in the face about being on equal economic footing with Seattle, but no one outside of Sacramento believes that. No one.
