    Not in the near future. Still have ten years left on their lease and would only be able to move them if he could prove that Staples wasn't a viable place for his franchise to exist. Also, their upcoming tv deal will more than likely lock them in to the So Cal market for the foreseeable future.

    Only worth what someone is willing to pay for it.

    Was it an account bet?

    Lakers must be worth 5.

    I wonder if their new state of the art practice facility was part of the deal. Heard it was valued at $40 million.

    pretty insane figure for a sports team, especially one that shares a city with a much more popular team. using mathematics (linear extrapolation, regression analysis, convergence/divergence), the lakes should be worth $17 bill and not a penny less.

    They don't even own the arena.

    NBA has done well for itself.

    I'll wait until the deal is finalized before giving Canti his av/sig combo. Donaldo can still mess this up. He changes his mind more than a woman.

    He already said that he wouldn't move them and that moving them to Seattle would essentially ruin the franchise's value. Want to just give me my sig/av now or should we wait until the deal is finalized?
