You guys are acting like the Maloofs hung up the phone when Burkle/anyone called. That's not how a proposal works. How the hell did Hansen get enough time to spit out a number then? Burkle's deal probably wasn't attractive enough.
Watch this video and read the article.

You will see who is right or not.
Yes because nobody changes their mind in 18 months.
I guess you didn't see the video.
George Maloofs just waived off Burke's bid as "It's all talk...it's just words...hogwash.." despite Burke having working towards a bid (for months). The Maloofs didn't took him seriously.
How can you know that Burkle's offer wasn't attractive enough? In the video, there's all the proof in the world that the Maloofs are liars and terrible businessmen. Especially, after the fact that they shunned a person that is 10X more powerful. They are a bunch of idiots.
How did Hansen got the time to figure out a number, you say?
The Maloofs have been dealing with Hansen under the table, privately for months now! From the first rumor where Hansen offered ~$400m for the Kings, at that point, the Maloofs have been talking and organizing a deal since then. These are early reports as far as last summer that Hansen/Maloof approached each other of selling the team!
It's hilarious that all of these people here who are now-experts in arena affairs of Sacramento in the last couple of weeks are telling Kings fans (who has an actual pulse in the matter and followed everything from the start) something else than what they are saying. It's laughable.
People here like to argue just for the sake of arguing.
