What will you do, and what do you think others will do?
good question myth
short answer: i am not sure
if the sonics move and keep the name, i can see myself still cheering for them. if they move and have a totally new name and seattle retains rights to the name "supersonics" in case we get a team back in the future (like the browns in cleveland), then i probably would disavow them, knowing in the back of my mind (especially if they win a championship, that really is OUR team)
cant speak for others
it depends how big an nba/sonic fan one is
i could root for the blazers in place of the sonics; i have always cheered for the knicks and the clippers
