sir charles chimes in on the sonics:

"The NBA doesn't need to expand," he said. "If they get a team, it will be somebody else's team. It's a travesty the way it went down.
"They always talk about the players being greedy; the owners are the greedy ones. It's really sad for me. They had the best fans. You were intimidated at that place when you went in there, and it's a great city, too."


Barkley was surprised when the settlement was announced but thinks it worked out the best way possible.


"It would be stupid to stay the next two years," he said. "It would have been a volatile situation."


The Sonics' move to Oklahoma City is hard for him to believe, too. He's familiar with the team's 41-year history and said the most intense series he ever played in was the seven-gamer between the Sonics and Suns in the 1993 Western Conference finals.

ray ray blames shultz too:

"Everybody foresaw this," Allen said. "Everybody should have done something more. I always felt that there were people fighting against the team being there."


When asked who's to blame for the Sonics move, Allen singled out Schultz, saying: "The ownership that brought me in," the one that engineered the ill-fated five-year plan, prompting erosion of the team and regional support.

Its just too late for Sonic fans to start caring now.

Fans and the city of seattle could have and should have done something about this wayyyyy earlier.

Seattle has plenty of professional sports teams and the sonics were forgotten about by most.

No one cared enough about them until its too late.

the ones who didnt care emotionally left a long time ago

only those who cared stuck it out until now

New names for OKC ...why bother. F Bennett. Worst owner in the NBA
and ranking up there with Georgia Fronteire, Al Davis, Art Moddell,
and Bob Irsay, the rats who moved their NFL franchises.

OKC should have taken the Clippers...(I can dream) Seattle deserves a team. Very sad.
