How do Sacramento Kings fans feel about Shaquille O’Neal, new Kings owner?

Later this morning, Shaquille O’Neal will be formally introduced as the newest minority owner of the Sacramento Kings.  O’Neal’s addition to the franchise would’ve been tough to fathom a decade ago when the Kings were battling the Big Aristotle and Los Angeles Lakers for Western Conference supremacy.  Then again, who saw the Maloofs’ fall from grace from the NBA back then?  How greatly things can change.

With O’Neal’s arrival in Sacramento, how do the fans feel?  Is there still any lingering illwill towards the former Lakers MVP who once called the Kings the “Sacramento Queens”?  Has the bad taste from playoff heartbreaks in 2000, 2001 and 2002 left the mouths of the Kings fanbase?  We took to Twitter to gauge their opinion.
