This team is only going to have local interest.

Nobody is going to wear their gear.

there will be a few who buy durant jerseys

Every player they draft will sign for less somewhere else.

if youre drafted in the nba and good enough to make the team, you will accept the paycheck

Even if Bennett thinks he is doing something great for his hometown, how is this a good business move?

time will tell-- he has spent a ton of money thusfar to get the team there


Granted: The post by, yours truly, the Grubes, had quite a few exclusive adjectives; but, there is no animosity or hatred.

First of all, BBQ might be good, but it is not cool. So, still nothing cool about Oklahoma. NBA players take pleasure in the coolness of their surroundings, best believe it.

or be similiar to other one sport towns (san anton, sacramento)

San Antonio: population 1.2 million. OKC: Population 550,000 and it is the capitol of Oklahoma. Sacramento is the capitol of Cali.

They will sell a few Durant jerseys, until Durant skips town.

Their team will probably consist of mostly players that are just "good enough" to make a roster. They will get one big money maker, though. But will they be able to KEEP a big money maker?

Bennett has spent a ton of money; yes he has. This begs my question. Is this good business?

RBP, Seattle is a pro town. Oklahoma is semi pro.

I am from Mississippi, a pro team should never move here.
