The arena has no main tenant right now, since the Maloof brothers, owners of the Kings, withdrew from negotiations last week.  And the public seems to have mixed feelings about that withdrawal:

If they’re really pulling out, if they’re man of their words, a man is supposed to have a word – they didn’t give a second thought.  They’re being selfish.
The Maloofs are business people.  They’ll try to get the most they can out of it.
I’m kind of vague, I’ll be honest with you.  I don’t know if it’s the right move or the wrong move.  I’d like to have the Kings in Sacramento.
The maloofs’ interest in pulling out is to just get more leverage and the whole throwing a fit to not getting what they want is just a ploy, it’s just politicking.
Officials with the campaign for measures Q and R are still raising money, and billboards supporting the measure are going up around town and on cabs.
