Chris is going to get us a team, period.

Also, want to thank our visitors from Sacramento for just letting me enjoy Sacramento's inevitable collapse as an extremely entertaining sideshow for the next couple of years. I might be a spiteful man, but I'm going to feed off of the misery of your little hole in the Earth.

All of this makes a whole lot of sense in light of what Tim Montemayor shared ...

Very expected, actually.

Very cool of the owners. Im sure it was Allen, Cuban, and some of the other good guys in the NBA.

From everything I've read it sounds like the owners were in Hansen's corner going into the vote but Stern did some "arm twisting" and got them to vote against. Supposedly Stern was extremely active during the vote.

F that guy.

No reason not to expand the league, Ved has stated and I have that the world is more into Basketball then ever before, it's not just an Americans game now and their is talent to be had not just withing our borders but the world. You can't tell me that adding two teams will delute that pool when you have argueably more talent then teams now compared to the 70's / 80/s / 90's. If your arguement is that we may not have enough Kobe's or La Brons or Durants thats weak since those player types are and always have been rare. As I stated in another thread, a good team can beat a group of guys that play one on one any day if they work together and play defense.

Yes thats an old school thought, but the Grizz are doing pretty well with it, Nate McMillian did well with it his time here in Seattle as a coach till he got the rug pulled from under him. It takes a good front office and coach to put that style of team together also. Celtics used that philosophy for years after Russell retired. They became legendary because of team work and playing together and busting their tales every night.

Team basketball? Coaches who actually make schemes and gameplans? What an odd concept...

I know there is some pissyness with the debate here, understandable as we are all irritated by the actions of Stern and the NBA. Are we not allowed to trust Hansen and Ballmer but NOT trust the NBA???? .....because that's where I'm sitting at right now, that's why I feel not sueing is a mistake!

Naw, it's just business. There's a way to play the game. There's a time to play nice and a time to go nuclear. everyone in the HBN group are successful businessmen who know how to get deals done. This group has the ultimate "good cop/bad cop" set up with Hansen and Ballmer and there is a time and a place for each. Much like we trust that John Schneider is making the right choice when he picks that guy we've never heard of, we have to trust that HBN are making the right choice to play nice at this juncture instead of scorching the countryside. I think the NBA knows that Ballmer is like a frothing rabid dog on the end of a chain, so they'd rather keep playing the nice guy act with Hansen Less they need to deal with the dog.

This will get done. There's likely a few more layers of song and dance to go through, but it'll get done... I get the feeling that seeing Hansen out front is a good thing. If Ballmer is the one repping the group, things are going south.

No one watches Leno so this one slipped by me

Phil Jackson is promoting his new book and is asked about Seattle/Kings relocation stuff. Says Hansen is a great person, would be great for the league and that Seattle is a terrific NBA city that needs a team (insinuates he would have taken FO job). Says he won't be a part of Sac. He then says he likes Sacramento, but not that much.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wnkYjFRYk8M

Seattle around 4 minute mark.

He called Sacramento a cow town back in that year when the Kings and Lakers were rivals. Didn't say anything inaccurate. I doubt the folks in Sac have forgotten that jab.

Sounds like Chris Hansen posted a letter on Sonicsarena.com indicating he is in for the duration and that he is talking to the NBA about possible expansion and or if other options become available ie Bucks and Bobcats is what the guys on KJR summized. Also said he is continueing to work the arena situation to get the last of the hurdles closed up.

I don't see any justification for twisted sarcasm in this instance. It was just a stupid thing to feel or say...

This is one of the few times I've read something on the internet and its gotten an emotional reaction out of me.

I am sure the thread will get cleaned up. No way should the despicable act of a few be used as justification for cheering the loss of life of innocents.

I think Hansens statement is very relevant, it means he's in for the long haul, it means that his team is still working the issues on both expansion and looking at other struggleing teams, it means he will continue to work arena issues and with politicians so that the MOU doesn't lapse and need to be re started. It means once something breaks were all in again rather then speculation of maybe Seattle may want to get involved. All this is important and significant for the next opportunity,keeping the good graces of the NBA going as well and not having to reprove that our ownership group is vested and acceptable.

Jackson did admit that he had an agreement with Chris Hansen, the prospective owner of a Seattle-based franchise, to take any job in the organization that he wanted. Hansen lost his bid to relocate the Sacramento Kings to Seattle.

"I thought [Hansen] was dynamic," Jackson said during the interview. "I thought he had great ideas. He went through the whole process of getting the arena. He did everything right except win the franchise, but his vision I could buy into. I think he had the right vision for a team.

If the TV exec had said he doesn't see the NBA returning to Seattle until 2042 you'd take it as gospel and be breaking down right now, though. :141847_bnono:

I could understand if it was a 24 month turnaround but the nba is going to have to jump on it quick. I support chris Hansen and think he will get it back. Just hoping sooner rather then later. Also I believe Calabro he is really tuned into the league and has a lot of friends after all the years of service.

@TDESPN Though, you did say the other night you cannot win the SB riding a defense. Even though you are literally the poster child for that. --twittered back at dilfer after he tried to slam hawks fans.
