Adam Silver on Kings Arena: ‘It’s a borderline miracle’


Just a few years ago, NBA commissioner Adam Silver had a hard time envisioning seeing this day come.

He stood outside Sacramento’s new, state-of-the-art downtown arena Thursday and welcomed Kings fans to the home opener for a franchise many believed was on its way out of town just over three years ago.

“I think it’s a borderline miracle from where we were in 2013 to be here in 2016, a year earlier than they originally pledged to have an arena done,” Silver said before the Kings hosted San Antonio in the first regular-season game at the Golden 1 Center.
