Venerable Kings blog Sactown Royalty notes that ESPN: The Paper Thingy ranks the Maloofs as the worst owners in sports—all of sports!—in their "Ultimate Standings 2012," which rates organizations across the four major sports based on some arbitrary methodology that I don't care to look into. (The owners are rated by "Honesty and loyalty to core players and local community," which seems totally subjective, but OK.) In honor of the late, widely-reviled Art Modell, it seems worth pointing out (and vigorously disputing the reasoning behind) ESPN calling the doofy but relatively harmless Maloofs the worst owners in any major American sport.
Granted, trying to move your team (to Anaheim? to Vegas? to any place that can pay for a new arena?) will drop you on the list pretty fast. But the Kings were good and fun not too long ago, with a fan base that only got turned off to the owners pretty recently. The Maloof sister seems fun. There are some good memories there. Kings fans seem to be on board with the decision, but everyone likes to feel exceptional, even if it's exceptionally fucked.
