  • Any idea how long we will have to wait? Its almost 5 Eastern. I doubt we will get the vote we want but it will be very interesting to see how many voters Hansen has swayed.

  • I can see this happening, NBA keeps team in Sacramento, pays Maloofs the difference in price out of their coffers to eliminate any litigation of Anti Trust, awards Seattle Expansion team in 2015 season.

    Everyone is reading too much into that. His attitude has nothing to do with it. If the NBA feels it will make all the owners wealthy they will expand. The only problem with expansion is that there are other teams that are on the bubble as far as being money-makers already, just not on the brink of being relocated as the kings were. There's a saturation of low-earners.

    I just made the depressing realization that the Sonics have been good more recently than the Mariners have. Despite not existing for the last five years.

    Life as a Seattle fan is rough.

  • As far as i know they are voting right now, however if they delay it that could only be to the good for Seattle because it means it's not as clear cut as the original committee vote would have indicated.
