Seattle is about to get the Sonics back

Reports from KJR 950 Seattle says the Maloof brothers are finalizing the sale of the Kings to Chris Hansen of Seattle. Hansen has already finalized an arena deal with Seattle, and King County. Great news for Seattle basketball fans.

It is a great arena that does great business. Its not like this is the arena version of metro north mall.

This situation is a lot better than having a team in there that might not be well supported.

I've love to see a hockey team here, but I wonder how many people would be willing to put down money for 41 home games plus playoff games... it's a pretty big investment, not even including the high dollar seats on the glass.
I would be one of those people.

Yeah it was. I live in Northern California. About two hours North of Sacramento, where I lived from early 1988 to mid 1995. After looking at this thread I found an article about it online and posted a link to it on FB so I can witness the wailing and gnashing of teeth.

I'd think something would have to suffer, beyond putting pressure on other local teams to do well. And of course it's one thing when it's a shiny new team or highly successful, and completely different when you're looking at these price tags and your team hasn't made the playoffs in a few years...

People in Kansas City love the idea of having things.

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.

The Kings were pretty terrible except for a three year stretch. I saw some great games and great players when they were here for sure. I saw Tiny Archibald take them to their first playoff series in 1975. They lost to the Bulls. Tiny tore his achilles the year before and they finished about 20 games under .500.

The playoff series with the Suns in 81 was awesome. Winning the 7th game on the road with Wedman and Otis Birdsong and Sam Lacey was fantastic. Losing to Moses Malone in the Western Conference finals was not as awesome.

Was at their last home game. The Lakers came to town on the last day of the season. Everybody was there to see magic and Kareem. The Lakers left Magic at home to nurse a knee and Kareem didn't play/travel because of a migraine.

Didn't matter. The Kings kept it close until the late 4th quarter. Wilkes, Cooper, Worthy,McAdoo, Byron Scott were enough. And they still had Kupchek, Mike McGee, Rambis and Ronnie Lester on the bench. Sick roster.

I remember the PA guy took a line from Don Meredith and said "Turn out the lights, the party's over" as we left.

The Maloofs didn't own the Kings when they moved from Kansas City. They owned the Rockets at that time.
