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.
The owner and GM who moved the team made all of the moves to make the team better. Had Seattle approved the arena deal 5 or 6 years ago they would have them.
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.
