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?
You cannot compare the two situations. What happened with the Sonics was immoral because people from Seattle got screwed. If the Kings move to Seattle, it's not immoral, because people from Seattle wouldn't be getting screwed.
It's only unfair when bad things happen to you...not when they happen to other people.
Sorry OKC, even if Seattle gets a new team, it will not clear your dirty concious for how you stole our team.
That is the dumbest thing I have heard on this board.
OKC didn't steal the team, Clay Bennet did. Seattle had chances to keep the team by building a new arena. I LIVE in SEATTLE. I was here for this. The city didn't want to build another arena right after quest (now century link) and safeco just got built. I f*cking hate Bennett and stern for the way they lied and planned all along to move to OKC but shit dont blame the fans. If a team with an absolute superstar and fantastic gm were brought to your doorstep you'd love it. Those fans are some of the loudest, most supportive in the league and to all those saying if okc had the kings and seattle the thunder then okc fans wouldn't be as supportive is completely unknowable.
Its not oklahoma city's fault the sonics got relocated.
Why not? They have been consistent for 20-30 years. The fans and the city are on the same page. Utah is a perfect place for a team. As long as the fan base is strong and the city is behind the team, they are doing the right things and should have a team.
Re: Seattle trying to get an NBA team back in town
I hate to say this, but the Seattle Supersonics is a more classic and sick name than Oklahoma City thunder. They should just move back to Seattle. Honestly, I don't care to watch OCT, just because of their name. It looks silly to me. It's like the Memphis Grizzlies. Me and my friend joke about how they are the same team and we forget which team is which. Seattle is nice city. I never been to Oklahoma, but how can that be better than Seattle? It's all about Seattle, let them have the Sonics back. Forget thunder. I don't watch Durant and westbrook because i think they play on a silly team. And i don't mean to disrespect oklahoma residents, but seattle was first. Were talking Payton, Kemp, Shremph.
