Chris Hansen/Seattle

This guy is in all out desperation mode. I just read on Y! Sports that he upped his offer to $625 million and guaranteed they'll pay INTO the revenue sharing pool!! That's an insane valuation for that franchise. I know the league said they didn' want this to turn into a bidding war but.....with the vote coming next week do you think this will sway a good amount of owners or is it a lost cause at this point?

This is going to turn out

This is going to turn out really ugly for one of the two cities. This could go on for a while, too. The decision might be made on the 15th, but if Seattle doesn't get approved, Hansen is going to court. As someone from the Seattle area, I love how much effort Chris Hansen is putting into this, but I don't want to see either city be heartbroken. It just sucks that expansion can't happen. Why not bring the last two cities who lost their team (Vancouver and Seattle) and give them both franchises? The NFL has 32 teams, so why no the NBA? Either way, it's not going to happen anytime soon, and so, for Hansen, the time is now to get an NBA team, because who knows if there will be another time

This is becoming a bidding war. Who can entice the other owners the most?

I dont see how this could

I dont see how this could work now but one of the good things about how the british premier league is that there is promotion and relegation so that every city has a team or 2 but they are not all in the top level, if you had this all these minor cities could have a team and then the cities with successful teams would be in the top level/ NBA

Though I like the idea of

Though I like the idea of expansion people complain that the talent pool is too diluted as it is and the NBA should contract.
