Breaking News: Sonics Tell NBA They Will Move To Oklahoma City
November 2, 2007 - 2:34 pm
RealGM Staff Report -
Seattle SuperSonics & Storm Chairman Clayton I. Bennett made the following statement on Friday regarding the future of the franchise.

"We notified Commissioner Stern that we intend to relocate the Sonics to Oklahoma City if we succeed in the pending litigation with the City, or are able to negotiate an early lease termination, or at the end of the lease term.

"We have not made a decision regarding the future location of the Seattle Storm. We appreciate the deep local interest and support for the Storm and have begun to evaluate a future course of action for the team.

"Notwithstanding the uncertainty and difficulty of this challenging time, we remain completely committed to the success of our basketball teams. We will continue to provide our players, coaches and staff the tools and support they need to be competitive."

There it is

it still has to be battled out in the court

the sonics have a lease until 2010 and the mayor/council are finally growing some balls to stand up to bennett

Great this forum'll be dead-er. Everyone'll probably leave and we'll have a bunch of Oklahomans take over. RBP, if they leave and go to OK City, are you staying?

It would suck major balls if the Sonics ended up moving up out of Seattle just for a few guys' business interests. Hopefully the Sonics find a way to stay.

If they leave, they should not take the soul of the team.

By "soul" I mean:

the colors, the name (sonics), and the retired numbers! Those have to stay at the very least!

Good points, $14.98. If all they took from the old city to Oklahoma City was the current roster, coaching staff, and management, etc., then the "soul" would definitely be gone. They need to keep the above mentioned qualities of the Seattle Sonics.

They *can* take the management, the players, and the current people involved. Those are replaceable.

But the retired jerseys, championship banners are part of the city of Seattle. O City can't have them! They must stay in Seattle!

If they move to OK City, they need to change their colors to like orange or something and get a new name.

or in front of howard shultz's house as a reminder of how much of a &^%^%$&*&^*&%&^% he i for selling to a guy from OK
