Hey KC, get behind LA for an NBA team.

Henry Samueli, the owner of the Anaheim Ducks and the Arrowhead Pond, is trying to lure an NBA team to is arena.

By Any Name, Samueli Wants an NBA Team
He may even buy a team and put them in the Pond, which puts him one up on us. We don't hae a local owner willing to purchase either an NBA or NHL team and put them in KC.

Samueli said he and his wife, Susan, had met with NBA Commissioner David Stern and asked whether the league would allow a third team in Southern California. "He said that's certainly a possibility," Samueli said. "He did not rule that out."

By the way, the Anaheim Ducks are no longer "Mighty...of" and they no longer have those awful eggplant uniforms. They switched colors and logo.

Though unremarkable, it is an improvement from the Emilio Estevez, Joshua Jackson, Keenan Thompson-inspired logo.

And, at this time I must pay homage to one of the great actors of our time, Lane Smith. The Mighty Ducks, My Cousin Vinny and Lois and Clark (wife's fave) wouldn't be the same without him.

Anaheim has been trying to get a team for awhile. I don't know why the Clips don't move there and get their own arena and community. I realize they make pretty good profits in LA, but they'd probably do well in Anaheim too.

I don't think Anaheim is in front of KC. I would think the NBA would be wary of oversaturing the SoCal market.

I think Anaheim is ahead of KC because they have a local owner interested in purchasing a team.

We do not.

If Samueli purchases a team, he can do whatever he wants regardless of whether the NBA is wary of oversaturating SoCal.
