Default What happened to Sonics fans?

You deep-rooted ones. You guys cheer for OKC now? The closest geographical team... Portland is it?

We're still here. Just don't post as much because, well, there's no Sonics.

Most Washingtonians choose not to root for the Thunder, rightfully so. Even some Sonics fans not from the local area choose not to root for the Thunder.

As for me, I don't. Never will until they actually come back to Seattle to become the Sonics, but that's me fantasizing in something that is impossible to happen. I root for Celtics now. Not sure about the rest of my Sonic brethren.

I like the Trailblazers, but I don't root for them because of the previous rivalry. It will feel awkward to do that, although some news stations are actually rooting for them.

Why would the Sonics cheer for a team that was stolen from them?

It really sucks that Seattle lost the sonics and Vancouver lost the grizzlies.
The cities are only like 100 miles apart from each other too.
NBA really hates the northwestern region.

Any true Sonics fan should hate the organization that held their city hostage for a new arena. A real Sonics fan is not a Thunder fan.

Last year it would have been Vancouver vs. Seattle in the Western Conference semis. Think about how amazing that series would have been.. what with their proximity and all that.

Fcking sick . There's only 1 team in the entire NW when there used to be 3, which sucks.

Though that might not happen. Players here might develop SAD.

Trust me, OKC fans don't care if you cheer for the Thunder or not.

The Sonics.

Despite what you say about the NBA being a business, the Sonics were a very important thing for the people of Seattle.

It's wrong for owners to lay down roots in the hearts of a community and then leave when things don't go their way.
