My initial reaction is delight that the purchaser is Lacob and not Ellison. In my mind, the franchise has a far better chance of success and stability under a team player who is part of a group than under a megalomaniacal sole owner. Then there is the fact that Lacob is a long-time basketball man who has first-hand experience in putting together a championship NBA franchise.
But my ultimate reaction, of course, will be dependent upon Don Nelson being retained to coach the playoff team that he has assembled. I’m keeping the Lagavulin corked until then.
