The Mayor and several local business owners met Bennett.  Johnson said there was some positive energy in the room.
MAYOR KEVIN JOHNSON: "I can tell you the NBA delegation has seen the best of Sacramento.  So, I'm very proud as the mayor of this community."
The Sacramento Metro Chamber says more pledged money is on the way from a number of small businesses.
