I'm 99% sure there is no championship banner hanging in OKC. OKC Has a banner hanging that says 'EST. 2008.' I don't think they even want to share the history.
Whether or not the banner is hung is not the point. The point is it's not with Seattle and that's on Nickels.
Here's a paragraph from the Seattle Times article referenced in an earlier post, here's the link again - http://seattletimes.com/html/nba/2008035531_soni06.html
"The settlement allows Bennett to replicate and use copies of Sonics memorabilia, including the 1979 NBA trophy, championship banners
and the team's six retired jerseys." "Additionally, he owns the Sonics' original championship trophy, banners and retired jerseys and is permitted to periodically display them in Oklahoma City."
Should have fought harder to at least keep those.
