Sorry, Sonic Fans. (A Sad Sad Day)
 
God, I couldn't think of a worse feeling than losing your favorite team. RBP and the rest of you Sonics fans, I mourn for you, for you have lost your team. In a way, they died tonight, RIP.

Very depressing. The NBA will never be the same without the Super-Sonics. I'm sorry to hear the news, Seattle. I can't believe how this played out.

I wonder where things all turned sour with this franchise? Was it when they traded GP?

Yep. I think it was when Howard Shultz traded GP.

But it didn't end there. They didn't extend Coach Nate McMillan's contract.

Ray Allen was eventually traded to the Celts. Rashard was a FA and signed with the Magic.

And I forgot what happened to Vin Baker. He got fat and depressed or something and was traded to the Celts in 2001 (?)

yeah...but I am optimistic for an expansion team.

It is very sad news. I grew up a Sonics fan. Followed them for 30 years, even when we got our team in Minnesota, I was still keeping up with the Sonics.

Now, I see why folks always say "Never have a favorite team. Because sooner or later they will break your heart." Well, good bye fellow Sonic fans and friends.

i'm not a sonics fan but I have to say this is some of the worst news I have heard in a while, it must be very hard for sonics fans right now I can't believe the selfishness that is involved in this it shouldn't be allowed.

I'm really sorry to hear the news, I loved the Bulls vs Sonics Battles back in the day.


As for when things went sour, I think it was 2 issues, the old owner sold to a group of OKC investors, which was dumb. Also, the city had so many issues preventing a new stadium that they lost David Stern's support.

I feel real bad for the city. They have always been there for th sonics. The people of memphis take the grizzlies for granted. I too have done that. But after seeing the sonics taken away. I will root for my grizz every game win or lose.

The basketball fans of Seattle and the state of Washington for that matter deserve much better. :(

This sucks, I feel horrible. Pretty selfish of the new owner (Bennet?). If theres a new team will you support...? Can you keep us updated..?

And again, for the hell of it...

That was such a great thread, good read.

I personally love your piece in the article forum, myself. Props. :cheers:

What will you do, RBP? Which team will you support now?

guess the Sene pick wasn't a good one, since they needed more immediate help
