Reporting Grant Napear
On last night’s TNT broadcast of the Kings game against the Oklahoma City Thunder, the TNT team incorrectly reported that the Sacramento City Council had voted down a deal that would build a new sports and entertainment complex in Downtown Sacramento. In fact, earlier in the week, the Sacramento City Council voted 5-4 to move ahead with their plan to privatize the city’s parking assets, without putting it on the ballot, in order to fund a new sports and entertainment complex – a move heralded by Arena advocates. Chris Webber, a member of the TNT team and Sacramento Kings legend, called into the Grant Napear Show for an interview that was supposed to shed light on how this error made it’s way to the TNT broadcast. Instead, the conversation was cut short by Chris Webber, as he hung up while defending his record advocating for the Sacramento Kings.
