Brian Robinson said on Q13 that the move to SBNation doesn't mean the Kings are definitely coming to Seattle, but that Sonics fans are definitely here to stay. If somehow the Kings deal falls through, are you giving up? I'm not, and I don't think Chris is either.

That being said, we're probably getting the Kings.


Heck no I'm not giving up if it goes the other way. Thats why I am so intertwined and invested with all the happenings with this event. I love my Sonics and want them to return so badly.

Well.. It was in the MOU, and it would only happen if a team were to come.

The $20 Million might be just contingent on how the BOG vote though.

And more of Hansen's own/group's money being used to make things happen. Man I hope we pull this off because I do not want to lose Chris and this potential ownership group if things go south.

Looks like the new stadium is going to be in the same neighborhood as Safeco and Century Link unless I'm mistaken about where the Sodo District is.

Yeah, if for some reason this ownership group bails you can kiss Seattle's chances of ever getting another NBA team goodbye.

Do you have any basis for that? It's my understanding that whoever loses between Seattle and Sac will be on the list for the next new NBA franchise.

The NBA should be thinking retraction rather than expansion. At least here in the states.

Hansen is playing with the numbers a bit by taking all of the individual game requests, adding them up, and counting them as 'Season Ticket Equivalents'. That makes up 4,000 of the requests. :lol: Insane.

HereWeBuy hit their goal of 10,000 though.

It's worth noting that everything KJ and Sac ends up doing is a reaction to what the Seattle group has done.

That's why they are behind.

We have businessmen working our deal, they have grandstanding politicians. Have faith.

Do you really think the NBA wants to make less money by staying in Sacramento? A declining TV market with even worse economic indicators? To pass up Seattle, one of the fastest growing cities in the country? These guys didn't get rich by making decisions that line up with greeting card sentimentality.

Seattle is not losing to two podunk, small-time towns and not coming away with an NBA team. This is a world class city.

No. We're not a loser city. We've been a small city going through the growing pains of becoming a major market, dealt with losing sports franchises at times, and adopted a loser mentality, but we need to get over it. Look at Sacramento, a near bankrupt town who argues that the fact that no other professional sports league wants anything to do with them is a great argument for why the NBA should want to be there, that's a loser argument. Seattle is at a point where any professional sports league that spurns it does so at its own expense. It's a bad business move, because this city has money, maybe too much of it, and we love to spend it on sports. Let's get over the whole passive aggressive cautiously pessimistic BS. We're better than that. The NBA won't reject Seattle. Perhaps the NBA likes the idea of Sacramento betting the last of its assets on basketball and has no concern for the fact that a city that's near bankruptcy is looking to go all in on an arena being their savior (cause there's any evidence to support THAT kind of move). If that's the case, then the NBA will expand, but they're doing so just to keep a team in Sac. Would you expand to Sacramento if there weren't a team there? No other pro-sports league would, the A's ownership laughed at the idea of moving to Sac.

To money or not to money? That is the NBA's question.

Sacramento is a "top 20 market" only in the number of TV households. They suck where it counts: unemployment, retail spending per capita, median income, etc. And they aren't growing, they continue to lose more and more spending power. Seattle is the opposite. Will it ever be LA or NYC? Probably not, but we're moving on up. If the NBA wants to make money, they don't pass on Seattle. If they want to stay with Sac for sentimental reasons, so be it, but that decision would not be a business maneuver, because they lose money by doing so. Sacramento is a charity case for the NBA and is only in this game because they are transferring the last of their public assets to private investors (who would otherwise never consider putting money into that city).
