Waiting for his flight to Dallas, Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson said what so many in both the Emerald City and Sacramento are thinking.

“It’s an opportunity for this saga to end,” Johnson told assembled reporters.

After a week of white noise on both sides about raised bids, escrows and alleged grandstanding by Joe, George and Gavin Maloof, Johnson had this to say, “We can’t worry about all the scenarios. At the end of the day, the relocation voted 7-0 to keep the team in Sacramento. We’re gonna build on that.”

With the news that Seattle’s mayor wasn’t making the trip to Dallas for one last pitch to the NBA Board of Governors about the potential sale of the Sacramento Kings, Johnson made it clear he wasn’t visiting the Lone Star state to sight-see.

“I’m not just going to Dallas to hang out with Mayor Rawlins and take a tour of the new Cowboys stadium, I’m going there to get my argument out,” the mayor said. “This is a huge opportunity for Sacramento and I’m going to state our case in a real way.”
