Realistically, I don't see a team until 2010, but who, knows, the OKC Thunder situation progressed fast

actually, there was a slow bleed ever since shultz sold the team to bennett in 2006

if we do have a chance at a team, there needs to be significant public money and then the owners would have to move an already existing team-- milwaukee, new orleans and memphis are mentioned as financially vulnerable

the biggest difference is that the intentions of the investors to move the team would be clear up front. unlike the disingenuine nature of how bennett handled it all here in seattle
