Lets face it, the last thing on the people of Seattle's mind is building a new arena for the Sonics.
They just bought a brand new football stadium and from what I hear they are searching for a way to correct the public transportation system for the city which is hideous. I have heard light rail, which if that is the case haha you can say goodbye to the Sonics.
It will be interesting to see how hard they new owners try to shop for a new arena, my guess? not very hard.
