And suppose they do move the team? Seattle obviously has a fanbase there. There is obviously support for a team. So what then? ANOTHER expansion team in an already watered down league?


people in seattle havent been outraged over the possibility of the sonics leaving town

most just say: that's too bad, i really liked the sonics

but most arent going to go out of their way to make the sonics stay

we have a bunch of fair weathered fans out here

Gary Payton isn't?

All-Time NBA Records:
21st in points (21,813)
6th in assists (8,966)
3rd in steals (2,445)
8th in games (1335)

No. Payton is not elite as a point. I dont put a number on when you stop being elite...but hes not in the discussion for greatest ever and thats enough for me. The all time sonic first and second team is probably something like:

Payton/DJ. Arguable who belongs first with DJ getting them a title. Lenny wilkens right behind them.
Gus/Ray Allen(yes im aware of Downtown Freddie Brown and Dale Ellis)
Xman and Tom Chambers
Spencer Haywood/Shawn Kemp
Jack Sikma/Bob Rule

Good players sure. Some great. But not all time elite at their positions.

He should move the team to New Jersey or St. Louis.

this is all well and good

but the bottom line is that the new owners, from day one, had the intent on moving the club
  • it is really a convergence of factors which include
  • the success of the hornets in okc,
  • howard shultz's inability to get a new arena,
  • shultz's ignorance on the losses incurred in any given year (although his investment into the club appreciated during his ownership),
  • shultz's short-sightedness in selling the club to an oklahoma businessman
  • the mediocre seasons the sonics have had of late
  • the somewhat recent building of stadiums for the mariners and seahawks that has tested the publics will in financing yet one more building for a privately owned sports team
i dont blame bennett as much as i do shultz
