On Monday Seattle Weekly's Dan Person broke the MLK Day Daily Weekly silence to note that a deal between the Maloof family and Chris Hansen's investment group (which includes Microsoft's Steve Ballmer) to bring the NBA's Sacramento Kings to Seattle appeared to be a done deal. As it turns out, it was.
And, as an observant Daily Weekly reader pointed out, the post included an incredibly appropriate typo.
As the post noted:
The Kings' march to Seattle has taken a giant leap today with a wide swath of news reports that a deal between Chris Hansen and Steve Ballmer and the Kings' owners is sealed.
ESPN.com reports that the deal would give the investment group headed by Hansen and Baller a 65 percent share of the team.
Upon the reports, Mayor Mike McGinn issued a statement of congratulations:
"This is an exciting day for our city and for Sonics fans everywhere. I congratulate Chris Hansen and his investment team. While there is more work ahead, this is a major step toward bringing the Sonics home."
The sale must still be approved by the NBA, and Sacramento's mayor Kevin Johnson will still be able to plead his case for why his city should keep the team.
And, as commenter Paul Balcerak pointed out:
You guys misspelled Ballmer in Paragraph 2, but it says "Baller," so technically, it's still accurate.
