I told EJ Hradek it was happening last year, gave him all the information and details on the new arena, etc, but he blew it off, attributing to the marketing BS of Las Vegas.
Las Vegas is transforming from a gambling oasis, to an entertainment mecca. Entertainment profits exceed gambling revenue now and of course everyone has seen the new commercials to visit las vegas.
They'll sell mucha seats to all the casino/hotels alone... so with the pooling of arena money, it will help the league with the revenue.
Should be fun to naming the new team... one name it won't be is the: 'Las Vegas Craps'
