The NBA has been dead to me since the day the Sonics left town. I won't even bother to get excited again until the Sonics' return home is officially confirmed. Even then I will still hate the NBA, but of course will support the Super Sonics as I always have.
NBA was dead to me after that Sonic scheme and they are NOT
righting any wrongs by having a new team in Seattle.
They are just making more money with another expansion fee and
that team which I sure as hell hope isn't named the Sonics will pass
it on to the suckers who will pay up the ass for a watered down NBA
I will stay a fan of the other Seattle teams-GO Hawks,Kraken and Ms!
I for one, am in support of a 1,000 year ban on the NBA ever returning to the greater Seattle area.
That is how bad they screwed us last time, and no, they should never get another opportunity to do it again.
Proudly, I haven't watched one minute since the Supes were taken away. Will I come back if they get a team? Probably, but I stopped caring a while ago. And I was a huge Sonics fan, been to several playoff games etc.
I place the blame in Howard Schultz's lap. The Sonics don't leave if he doesn't sell. He is Seattle's Benedict Arnold. Horrible traitor of the public trust. And for those who think he gets a pass for not getting a new arena built, think again. We got a new arena built for one. These things take time, just as they did with the Mariners new stadium, the Seahawks new stadium, and the new Kraken stadium. And remember it was only two years later that Ballmer left Microsoft, who would have surely bought the Sonics and kept them here had they not been sold out from under the fans of the team.
