Default Re: seattle should say no to raiding an existing nba team!!

ill say this to OKC fans who are being jerks to Seattle fans right now

you just stole a team with 40 years of history in the same town.

how easy do you think it will be to move your stolen team away if CB decides he isnt making the money he thought?

answer

PRETTY F-ING EASY



this is just pathetic all the way around.

MSG where the Knicks play is no better than Key Arena. Its a big piece of garbage too. however we all know the NBA would NEVER allow the Knicks to move just b/c they were not happy about how much money they could bilk taxpayers out of for a new arena.

My opinion is this, i cannot see the former Seattle team lasting very long in OKC, not a major sports city if you ask me.

From what I heard, NO's attendance was still poor until after the all star break when it became apparent how good this team is.

The true mark of a team is how good their attendance is when the team is mediocre, or on the bubble, not when they're on the top of their game. Then all the fair weather fans come out.

Seattle had to deal with a noncontender for 10 years.
