Yeah I think Sacramento deserves the Kings. They were successful in the past and it woud be a knee jerk reaction to move them after a couple poor teams/seasons. I think the New Orleans market is too small to support a team and the intrest was largely due to the team being good and having Chris Paul. Hornets and Sonics shouldn't have moved a decade ago and if Bennett wanted a team in OKC he should have gone up against Kansas City, maybe Louisville and Norfolk for an expansion team. Its really crazy that KC doesn't have a team with the Sprint center. Its nicer than 80% of the arenas in the NBA.

I don't mind the Thunder as a name, but I hate the logo...

I would've perferred these instead...

Those Thunder uniforms above are really good...quality logo.



The Nets, if not co-owned by Mr. H.O.V.A., would have seemed a good choice to move. The Nets didn't have sell-outs while going to the Finals in back-to-back years. Most people in NJ don't root for the Nets. Now, they're heading to Brooklyn. Of course, New York can handle two teams, especially with the Nets in Brooklyn...but they'd seem a prime candidate if not for Jay-Z.

I like the logo. I don't like the colors or the numbers on the jerseys, but the quality is great.

I personally love the colors. No one has brown in the NBA right? So if the Thunder take a shit on someone, they almost literally will look like shit.

So are all the Sonics fans who spent years bemoaning the loss of the Sonics to OKC even going as far as making a movie called Sonics-gate now going to openly embrace stealing another cities team?

i think it would be irresponsible of the NBA to allow a move to happen right now, and i think David Stern knows this. It'll be at least 2 or 3 years before we see basketball back in Seattle imo

That stinks about the records. But I agree with you, as much as I would love to have the Sonics back in the league, I don't see that happening for at least 3-4 years, which would be cool with me. Man playing this NBA 06 is getting boring

Default Re: Seattle to get a new team by fall?

As a Seattle area resident and a Kings fan, I hope this doesn't happen. I'd be stoked to be close to the Kings again (used to live around Sac) and to have a team nearby again (had the Sonics here), but I'd be sad to have the Kings when Sacramento lost them.

The circumstances would be far less disturbing than the Sonics departure from Seattle, but I'd prefer Seattle get a team back in a different way.

If a team must be "stolen" I'd prefer it be from a city that doesn't support their team well.

Unfortunately, that's the only way Seattle's probably going to get a team.
