bennett knew that if the sonics were successful, that the city would rally around them and work to keep them in seattle. so it was to his advantage to rid the team of anyone who had a connection to the past. for example, when lenny was relegated to a "consultant" type role, i knew we were dust

winning was not bennett's goal from the beginning; moving the team was. blowing it up worked toward that goal
