Grant was joined by Mayor Kevin Johnson who talked about the chances of keeping the Kings in Sacramento. Kevin said that the most difficult thing is the emotional roller coaster that the community has to constantly deal with. Kevin Johnson also said that the long term investment is one of the most important things about keeping the Kings in Sacramento. Kevin said that the four things that will get this deal done are ownership, the market, fans, and the corporate base. Mayor Johnson stressed the fact that we need 10,000 pledges for the herewebuy.org movement. Grant asked Kevin if he was bothered by the fact that it was not a unanimous vote for the arena deal. Kevin said he was not at all bothered by it, he said that people are always going to have different opinions and as long as you’re getting the majority vote it’s worth it.
