Will Downtown Kansas City Ever Get The Pro-Sports Team We Were Promised???
Almost a decade ago, Mayor Kay Barnes said that a pro-team would come to Downtown Kansas City IF voters approved the $300 MILLION Sprint Center project based on nothing more than big talk . . . In the aftermath, there has been a great deal of hype about the place as a concert venue but it's mostly the last stop on national tours for b-list acts. Even worse, the arena is rapidly aging an hasn't helped the P&L District from costing local taxpayers more than $15 MILLION a year worth of financing.
Still, hope remains that the promise of an NBA team could finally fulfill one of the most shameful broken promises in Kansas City.
