This means $$$...
just got back into town...
YEAAAA!!!! we got the #2 pick. not since we drafted gp have i been this pumped up over a draft pick
my guess: we will probably sign and trade rashard. for whom, i am open to suggestion
as to increasing our chances to stay in seattle, i am not sure about...
the issue is with people who are NOT fans of hoops-- we could have picked up durant AND oden and when you told them, they would look at you and asked, "who?"
the arena issues remain whoever the sonics get.
durant would come one year too late. if we picked him up and had a playoff run and then asked for a new arena deal, then we would have been negotiating from a more powerful position
as it is now, we are still very vulnerable to being moved because the arena issue is far from settled and bennett isnt going to wait around for us to get our $hit together
