Seattle fans deserve a team...it's a shame if they move. OKC should get the Hornets.

That would be weird to have the Sonics in Seattle anymore. They have some great fans up there.

I highly doubt that OKC will get the Hornets. They just moved to NO and I'm sure Stern wnats to keep the team there.

New Orleans didn't support the team for whatever reason before the hurricane, and now I don't think they're capable. You're probably right though, because it wouldn't be the greatest PR move.

You're right, they didn't really support it. But look at the new Charlotte team, not too much support going on there either.

Wow, just wow. Sonics should always be in Seattle, but OKC deserves a team (yes, the Hornets). Last time NO had the Jazz, the Jazz moved out. This time they have the Hornets and even without the hurricane, the Hornets weren't doing good business. NO is just not a basketball city at all.

Oh God no! The NBA has already taken my Grizzlies away from me, now they might take the next best thing, the SONICS!

Despite all of that, Seattle is a fantastic city and they deserve an NBA team.

The city isn't doing much to support their stay though. The fans yes, but not the city officials. Isn't this whole mess about a new arena, or renavating the Key Arena or something?

sucks for seattle... but even if they do move to OKC... they'll get another team eventually... Seattle is a much more NBA worthy city than charlotte or new orleans.

This is bull****. Pisses me off so much that Stern allows teams to hold taxpayers hostage. Build your own damn stadium, and if you can't afford it, don't buy an NBA franchise. Why can't that be how things work?
