Default Darkest Day in Seattle Sports History

3 years ago today (July 2, 2008), our beloved SuperSonics were stolen from us by David Stern and a buch of OKC country-club yahoos.

Today both Stern and Clay Bennett are losing hundreds of millions of dollars in a lockout brought about by a broken economic model that cost Seattle its team.

Karma is a mighty bitch, Stern and Clay Clay.

I'm with the Sonics on this one. Besides OKC having a bad nickname in a shitty place (I think, at least in the middle of nowhere) the Sonics had BY FAR the best nick, the best fan (dont remember his name) and IMO the best team colours. Also they werent a small market team, so it dont make sense to move then than say (Milwaukee, Utah, Sota, NOLA, OKC).

No man. I'd put my life on hold, stay on this board, and make constant threads about the evils of Adam Silver, the new St. Louis Jazz, and the dude who bought them.

We're the Jazz moved from NO? Don't ask a Jazz fan if he'd care if his team was moved. He wouldn't understand.

Professional teams in America move. We all know that. Sonics fans knew that. It's not like the Sonics were given to Seattle under the agreement that they would never, ever leave.

I just don't understand all this hate. I mean, what exactly is the fault of Oklahoma City and the fans in the city? What were they supposed to do? Boycott their NBA team because some people in Seattle are butt-hurt? Hate Clay Bennett because he brought pro ball to his hometown?

Seattle wasn't moved until they got a superstar player. Pretty fishy timing. The Seattle fans waited a long time for a player like Durant, and OKC gets all the benefit. It's not OKC's fault, they were good fans for the Hornets.

It just cheapens the bond between a franchise and the city. The pride factor. The idea that your team is just there because of money. People get attached to the team. Sorry that the fans of the NBA value something more than money.

Fucking get over it. Find a new team to root for, and stop being butthurt bitches. Maybe if you're lucky, the league will expand and the Sonics could be back.

It's easy not to value money when it isn't yours. It's also easy to make attachments to someone else's property and then cry foul when they decide to exercise their legal right to that property.

Other teams have moved in the past 10 years and we haven't seen this kind of bile and vitriol. And every time I point this out, Seattle fans claim that somehow, the Sonics are different. Why?

Their attendance was only 14,000 that final season. That's terrible. They also didn't want to pony up for a new arena, after they had already agreed to do so for their 2 other pro sports teams. Clay Bennett would have been a fool to keep them there under the circumstances. Ignoring that fact and the fact that the people who talk the most *#&$ about the city know nothing about it, the whole "small market, there's nothing to do there," city thing works in the favor of teams then doesn't it? Since according to you guys, there's nothing else to do here.
