Agree, though I would feel skeptical even without SKC around. Hockey and soccer fans interlink a lot more than soccer and NBA fans.

Would love to see a NBA team back in Seattle.

Can you imagine if the Chiefs drafted our QBOTF who turns into an elite NFL player only to have a team from cowtown OKC steal them from us?

I really feel for the Sonic fans. At least they are getting their team back.

I appreciate the sentiment, and we would've have gotten Durant, as long as Stern rigged the draft for us the same he did for Bennett, but the OKC ownership group put that team together. The nutless wonder, Howard Schultz would've never paid the coin to put that team together, because he's a piece of shit. Give us the damn jerseys, team color, and name back and I'm good.

The **** I don't. The Sonics were my 3rd favorite team in all of sports behind the Chiefs and Washington Huskies when they were ripped away. I supported them losing the same as I did the Chiefs. I don't feel good about anyone having to go through something like that. It's ****ed, and it hurts, and it leaves a scar if you're a passionate fan.

What's your gauge on this one?

I'd like to say time heals all wounds, but it hasn't. That said, we get the team name, colors, and jerseys back, we'll claim the ****ing championship whether anyone likes it or not because we won the sonofabitch. I want to get back into basketball. Badly. So, I may chalk it up as Seattle leadership, dickless Howard Schultz, and David Stern are all evil incarnations of Satan that I hope has to watch their families suffer in some unfathomable form. We get the green and gold rolling back up in Seatown, and I may get sucked right back in. I don't know yet. I do know it won't be about wins and losses. It'll be the heart and soul of the team, the town, the fans, this apparently God like new owner, and the game itself that will win me over.

There was a hardcore fanbase that was pissed from day one like Flop, and I feel for those fans. The major uproar began when the Thunder became the darlings of the NBA.

However, Seattle is doing the same thing to Sacramento that OKC did to Seattle. The same thing that Sacremento did to my Kings when I was 12 years old.

It's business and the community made the decision. If the Thunder weren't making the playoffs would you still want those players?

Your argument is silly.

Congrats to Seattle though. I'm happy you are getting a team.

You've been as gracious as humanly possible throughout this whole thing. You are every bit of a Thunder fan as I was a Sonic fan. I'm happy that you have the ability to experience some of the things I experienced as a fan for as long as I did. An OKC/Seattle rivalry is immenent if Hansen puts forth the resources to build the team as he has to build the arena, and the rights to get a team back in Seattle. That will be fun. And don't be surprised when I say it's the old Sonics vs. the new Sonics. :D

I wonder if the NBA then will switch Portland and Phoenix division wise if this goes down.

okcchief 01-09-2013 04:32 PM

I'm happy for Seattle. It's obviously a great sports town. Yes, the rivalry will be ****ing epic. It wouldn't surprise me if the put the Sonics back in the NorthEast and shifted some teams around. I guess it's never going to make complete sense no matter what they do.

I used to think the Hornets would move to KC, but now that Benson is there no chance. Maybe another team will come along.

RealSNR 01-09-2013 04:34 PM

Funny enough, if they keep the same name it would be an ideal match. Seattle Kings. Those two go together.

I know Flop mentioned that he wanted the Sonics back 100%, and that also would be good. We'll see.

Why would they do that? It would make more sense to switch OKC and Seattle. OKC is neither North or WestI guess they aren't Pacific either but it would make sense for Seattle.

ChiefsCountry 01-09-2013 04:36 PM

New Pacific Division
Golden State
LA Clippers
LA Lakers
Portland
Seattle

New Northwest Division
Denver
Minnesota
Oklahoma City
Phoenix
Utah

The Kings are a traveling whore show. Rochester, Cincinnati, Omaha, KC, Sacramento. They go to a city for around 10 to 15 years, then leave. So Seattle will probably get them for about 10 years, then they'll be on to wherever the next meal ticket is.

And they'll never win crap, either.

I know it doesn't make total sense geographically, but why not have OKC and Seattle in the same division to take advantage of the built-in hatred?

They'll be the Sonics. Part of the deal was they got the name, history, etc back when they get a team. I'm glad because I don't like it when they say its the first time the Thunder have done blah blah since 1983. The seperation will be nice.

Actually, you are right. That makes a lot more sense.
