    Kings are always an obvious target. But if they get the arena plan passed (which has more supporters than naysayers) then they stay in Sac. Not sure who else could possibly move besides the Hornets.

    They're also trying to get a NHL team, so with two professional teams, it will be easier to build a new arena

    I think Seattle has until the end of this year to establish a franchise and, if they do, they take all their history back with them. At least I think that's right...

    How about OKC gives back the "Thunder" to Seattle and then they take the Kings. Then we'll see how many fans show up to games in OKC. They didn't wait through years of losing like Seattle did. The deserve to start out with Cousins and Evans.

    How about you jackasses stop blaming the fans for what went down and direct your anger to Stern and Bennett? Jesus.

    Edit: And can we please not turn this into a Seattle vs OKC thread? It'd more fun to look at the rivalry the two teams will automatically create with a new franchise in Seattle. Imagine how raucus the fans will be when the Thunder visit.

    Sorry OKC, even if Seattle gets a new team, it will not clear your dirty concious for how you stole our team.

    As good as the team and fans are, the Thunder still have the lamest name and logo in all of sports. Everytime I go to the domestic cleaning aisle in the grocery store I half expect to see their logo next to the Tide and Bounty
