they was talk about bringing a franchise back there. i for one would bve glad to see that. now the question is how will they. will they be a team like the bobcats, hornets, that relocates their.or would stern grant them expansion. what do you guys think
They have a great fan base and are definitely worthy of having a franchise...Kemp and his 18 out of wedlock children are gonna be co-co-co-co owner with Detlef as GM
Gary Payton is pushing hard to get a team back there, but chances are it won't be back until the 2011 or 2012 Season at the earliest. Sad, but who knows. Bobcats, Hornets, like you said above could be relocated and don't forget the Grizz despite what they say in Memphis.
the grizzlies relocate their.
I'm from Seattle and that term "you dont really know how much you love something until its gone" is so true.
the fans and city should have did eveything in their power to keep that team their. stop being so damn cheap and give them a new arena. how many years the sonics been their. so many memories,. now i guess seattle wont be able to see durant take off in the league for awhile.
dude the fans loved the sonics and wanted them to stay that guy that bought them already had his mind set that he would move them to okc...
but why did the previous owner sell it to him then. i woulda sold it to someone from seattle
nothing against the fans of seattle or the city itself... but if the fans loved the team so much they would have bought season tickets to keep it alive....
however they definately deserve a team
i blame the city and owner for not agreeing on buying a new arena.
they did try to keep the team they even sued for the name and thats why they came up with the lame ass thuder name
dont get me wrong i like the thuder but i loved the sonics
