206 Clicks: Sacramento Optimistic In Keeping Their Kings

Everyone's favorite commissioner David Stern and Sacramento mayor Kevin Johnson released a joint statement on Wednesday saying they've agreed to a "work plan" to have an arena-financing deal in place before the Mar. 1 deadline.

While it would've been cool to see Nate Robinson and Isaiah Thomas help UW dominate in the postseason, both of them were able to quickly prove their worth in the NBA.
  • Jeff Taylor from the Husky Haul wonders on how good Coach Romar has done his job this season. My opinion? Let's wait until the end of the season. This team is capable of making it to the Elite Eight. Yeah, I did say that. If they make it past the second round of the NCAA tournament I'll consider it a "good" job by Romar.
  • A little late on this, but Jeff Nusser from CougCenter made a case for Brock Motum being named Pac-12 player of the year. After reading the post, I don't think Nusser is crazy at all for holding the opinion. Read it for yourself if you're pulling your hair thinking Motum is the best player in the conference. Numbers don't lie.
