History will record that one of the last teams to play on the Charlotte Sting’s court was the UNC Tar Heel men. It wasn’t a sellout either.

After carrying the money-losing operation for almost four years, Bob Johnson is evidently poised to off-load the team to investors in Kansas City for around $6 million. Johnson never wanted the WNBA franchise, but it was the price of admission to the NBA; a pet project of David Stern that never made economic sense.

Speaking of economic sense, KC needs teams to fill up the — wait for it — new arena the city is building. The $276 million arena will seat 18,500, house the National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame, and is being paid for with hotel/motel and car rental taxes. Gee, where have we heard all that before?

Good luck with that, guys. And gals.
